Two quick tech tips:

  1. If you are handling the upgrade by yourself, powersolution.com advises users to navigate directly to the official vendor website (of any software you are looking to install). Manually type the URL into the browser instead of clicking on links from unverified sources, no matter how legitimate they look.
  2. Your Anti-virus should be set to auto-update its virus definitions. Threats like fake installations should be spotted by most modern, up-to-date antivirus products.
