There is hardly a country in the world, in which so often and often is complained, like the USA.This gets now synonymous or again Microsoft feel. The Redmonder Group has been sued by users claiming that the upgrade to Windows 10 has destroyed data and damaged computers.
The lawsuit filed by three Windows users before a US District Court in Chicago alleges that Windows 10 is a defective product. Furthermore, the Redmond company failed to provide sufficient warnings about the possible risks of an installation or upgrade of the operating system.
According to the allegations, which are designed as collective charges, Microsoft failed to “design, create and manufacture Windows 10 with sufficient care, and place it on the market”. As a result of these omissions, the company distributed an operating system that was vulnerable to data loss and hardware damage.
According to a report from The Register, theintended collective accusation is to be able to connect any US-American who has migrated from Windows 7 to Windows 10 and suffered damage to hard- or software over a period of 30 days thereafter. According to the attorneys of the originally lamenting trio, hundreds of thousands are to be considered. Furthermore, the applicants complain to the Redmonder company that the update has often been installed without the user’s intervention.
Applicant Stephanie Watson, for example, thinks that Windows 10 has installed itself without its permission and has deleted data, some of them were connected with the work. She then hired experts to “repair” the device, but this was not completely successful and they had to buy a new computer.
Microsoft has now designated the allegations as “unstable” and meant that there was an option within the Upgrade Offers to reject this. It also highlighted the many opportunities for support during the one-year offer and also the option to roll back to the earlier version of the operating system.
