Since our previous Windows 8.1 giveaway was so well received Daves Computer Tips is offering our subscribers a second chance to win a copy of Windows 8.1 64-bit, including installation media and genuine product key, absolutely free!

With the recent Windows XP End Of Life we’re sure many readers will be looking to update their operating system, or build new computers, making this a timely and useful prize.

DCT is pretty much the ‘home’ of Windows 8/8.1. Dave, myself, Richard, and Marc are all running Windows 8.1 and we all like the new operating system. Between us, we have written and published numerous articles, all drawn from first hand experience – guides, tips, how-tos, and the like – to help users setup and manage their new operating system making DCT a terrific resource for anyone running Windows 8.1 and you can access all those articles in the one place by visiting the Windows 8 Category in the right hand navigation panel.
