Welcome to Andy Computers, home of your friendly local IT guy, Andy. With a passion for technology that spans over four decades, I've dedicated my life to mastering the digital world, starting from the days of programming on my ZX Spectrum while my peers were engrossed in games.

Over the years, I've honed my skills in building, programming, and installing computers, as well as crafting websites. In 2015, I made the beautiful town of Lostwithiel my home and now I want to commit to serving the local community with their computer needs.

Windows10 Upgrade

Upgrade to Windows 11

Numerous computers currently fall short of Microsoft's stringent system prerequisites for Windows 11.

This situation poses a significant challenge as we approach October 2025, the deadline after which Microsoft will cease support for Windows 10. From this point forward, these systems will no longer benefit from critical updates and security patches, potentially leaving a vast number of users exposed to vulnerabilities.

At Andy Computers, we find this scenario unacceptable. We're committed to ensuring your digital security and continuity. That's why we offer specialized services to seamlessly upgrade almost any Windows 10 computer to Windows 11, even those that don't officially meet Microsoft's stated requirements. Trust us to keep your system up-to-date and secure.
