Currently I'm using a not genuine copy of Windows 7 SP1, and I wish to use a genuine Windows 8.1 or 10 (considering a Retail version of Windows 7 isn't available anymore in stores).
I'm not sure if I should wait until July 29 to buy Windows 10 or to purchase now Windows 8.1 and have the option to upgade it afterwards (I want to format my OS drive and do a clean install).
I use the PC for a little bit of Gaming and web surfing.
I hope you can help me with these questions:
1) Is staying with this non-genuine Windows 7 can put my PC at risk so badly that I should go and buy Windows 8.1 and install it (My Windows is currently in Activated status)?
2) What OS would you recommend me to use: Windows 7, 8.1 or 10?
Thanks for reading and trying to help (=
