I am about to upgrade two creaky old Win XP machines to shiny new Win 10 machines. The tech I hired to set up the XP machines did a few things wrong, some of which I had to pay someone else to fix and others I have had to live with. I don't want to make the same mistake this time around. So I have a couple of questions:
- Is there a step-by-step guide or tutorial that will walk me through getting these new machines set up properly?
- Is there a step-by-step guide or tutorial that will walk me through obtaining and installing the most robust collection of anti-malware applications?
- Is there any way for me to find a local tech to help me in person if I need it? I am in Silicon Valley. I have tried 3-4 techs, some of whom came highly recommended. None of them seemed really competent to me. Is there maybe a national company, like Geek Squad, that is reliable?
One of the new machines will be a Dell laptop and the other will be a Microsoft Surface Pro 4.
