When free isn’t free

Dear Reader,

Are you a Windows 10 user? Did you update from Windows 7 or 8?

Then Microsoft lied to you, when they claimed Windows 10 would be free. Free as in free of charge. Because you paid for your earlier version of Windows, when you bought your computer.

Getting paid once isn’t enough for Microsoft. They make you pay for Windows 10 with all your data.

Now it is getting even better. Besides paying for your earlier version, and for Windows 10 with all your data, you are now force-fed advertising.You are now paying Microsoft as a viewer of their ads as well.

According to some media reports, Microsoft abuses your (!) computer and your (!) internet connection to show you advertising. If your computer goes into the lock screen, and you unlock it, there is an ad. Because you paying twice isn’t enough when it comes to Microsoft. You have to pay them continuously.

If you want to switch off those ads, here is how:


My recommendation of course is, to switch off Windows completely and switch to a better operating system. But that is just me.

Stay sane,

Engine Room

    I can only assume that this means “Fish off” and that he had some bad fish for lunch and had a problem with his Arse !

  2. Thankfully doesn’t apply to me. I was given the light a while ago!!

    Young girl walks into a supermarket and on her way round she sees the bloke with whom she had sex the previous evening, after they had met in a pub.

    He is stacking washing powder boxes on shelves.

    “You lying sod!” she yells. “Last night you told me you were a stunt pilot!

    “No I didn’t,” he says, “I told you I was a member of the Ariel display team.”

  3. Why wouldn’t you want to display such a … wOw
