I'm so glad that I have no PC to upgrade today. I did mine last year. I wonder if there'll be a server glitch or folks with installation problems and if MS will extend the deadline.

Also ending today (I hope) will be all the ads for purchasing refurbished Win 7 computers offering a 'free upgrade to Win 10.'

PS: What's a Horray, Barney? wink

Hooray = JoyIn this case it

Hooray = Joy

In this case it might be short lived. I'll bet that MS will begin to pester us again about upgrading to w10. They have to, otherwise their goal can't be considered complete as long as they have to support the old OS, and the non-cloud Office software.

w10 will be on every new device you buy. I intend to make my W7 machines last as long as I can, then surrender if necessary.

I never get lost, but I do explore new territory every now and then.

no w10 nags

Yesterday I did a clean install of Windows 7 on a PC along with all the updates. There is nothing Windows 10 in the System Tray and no nag screens.

You can still buy the non-cloud Office software. Microsoft Home and Office 2016. It is not offered everywhere and you have to look for it. I bought it. It is on my computer and not the cloud. I have the options to save on the cloud but don't. I can only put it on one computer but that is all I need.

Win 10 nag

I like that... Win10 nag. I read it for the first time, here.

For those of us who will run their Win XP or 7 until nevermore, there is a way to hide the nag.

In the Windows update, find update #KB3035583, and uninstall it. Control Panel>Programs & Features On the left, in the pale blue panel, click "View installed updates" Click the "Program" header to sort by program. Then scroll down until you find the update. Click "Uninstall" You will have to re-boot. After the re-boot, you will see that the icon is gone from the bottom right corner "Notification Center"

To keep it from coming back, set the update options to update only what you want updated. Control Panel>Windows Update Pale blue panel on the left, select "Change settings" On the drop-down, select "Download updates but let me choose whether to install them" Now, when updates come in, Click "# important updates are available" (# being the number of updates) Look for the update KB3035583, Uncheck the box in front, then 'Right-click' on the update itself. Select "hide update". It will NOT install from that point forward. You can reset your updates to automatic, if you want.

It seems like a lot of work, but to keep from seeing the nagware, it is worth it. And it isn't hard at all, really.

This is not true!

A lot of us have done that and MS pushed it back and reset our computers so it downloaded again.
And MS pulled another one yesterday on me. I installed 6 updates. None were the KB3035583 and yet on a reboot I received a screen that offered me the Win 10. I had to read it real carefully so I didn't install Win 10. MS is real sneaky!

I understand the dissatisfaction

I understand the dissatisfaction with how Microsoft aggressively pushed this free upgrade to Win 10. I was more than annoyed on multiple occasions. That said, I think we will now start hearing complaints from users who missed the July 29 deadline, and feel that Microsoft owes them free access to the upgrade. It is not possible to make everyone happy.

For me, I am glad I kept getting the notices to remind me the deadline was coming. I had no problems with Win 7 and still prefer it because it is what I know. but I am glad I took advantage of the upgrade. It will give me a few additional years of service out of my PC. I tend to keep my PC's until they die, so extending its life of getting security updates is worth the annoyance of the upgrade.

My main day-to-day workhorse is still my laptop running Vista 64 Home Premium Edition. And I know security updates are coming to an end on it soon. I wish Microsoft had offered the free upgrade for that machine, as it was a high end gaming laptop and is still fully usable except for not getting security updates.

Just wondering - have you ever used Windows 10 for a significant period of time to find out (e.g. know) if you really like it, or not?

Microsoft says; "Now, there are over 350 million active devices running Windows 10 around the world, with the highest customer satisfaction of any version of Windows." That's a strong statement - "...with the highest customer satisfaction of any version of Windows."!!!

Me, for one, as already stated. It took a couple of days of research on how to get my older applications to work (especially Windows Mail which hasn't been supported since Vista). But in the end, I found the solution, didn't lose a single byte of anything I wanted to keep. Everything is working as before, except me, who still needs to learn the new interface. Glad I decided to go forward with the upgrade, as it will probably keep my computer viable until the hardware (or me which is more likely) dies.

... a few months after it came out but took the plunge and haven't looked back. As you mention, it takes a little to get used to new names for familiar programs and where things are but after wandering around for a while now, I like it.

I use Windows Mail 2011/12 which I too was glad made the switch, however I'm hearing now it might not work in the future which I would be in favor of at all.

I "upgraded" two computers, a desktop that originally had XP (now 10 home) and a laptop (now 10 pro) that came with 7 and a disc for 8 that I never installed.

I've had it on my main laptop since it was released. It's okay. I actually liked 8.1 better. But I've gotten used to 10 and it's fine. There are still some things that drive me crazy. Things that work significantly differently than 8.1 or even other previous versions.

But I don't "dislike" it at all.

Why, Yes I Tried Using Windows 10 A Significant Amount Of Time!

Why yes I did.

Immediately after powering on a new laptop for the first time with Windows 10 installed on it I knew I didn't like it.

It's like eating raw habenario peppers.

You know almost immediately, usually within a few seconds if you like it or not!

Quote:

They did not ask me. win 10 is for teeney boppers who have no idea what a computer does. It is an attempt to get people to transfere to a tablet or other platform.
My new throwaway laptop came with all types of MS apps and were unable to remove with the undelete program that came with win 10.
Problem solved with installing IObits uninstaller where it removed all the crap MS wanted to sell us.
I find win 10 is good as long as you delete all MS programs and only use it as an internet program and not for other programs.
The only MS program I use is Explorer otherwise it is other.

Win 10 free upgrade has ended.

Oh yeah, you're right. The icon in the notification area is gone now. And it's no longer listed in Windows Updates.

A new update to Microsoft's Windows 10 is coming http://www.cnet.com/news/microsoft-is-updating-windows-10-ag...

The software behemoth is making good on its promise to run Windows "as a service," meaning it will send refinements and new features to PCs a couple of times a year. The result is our PCs get new features quicker, and regular refinements of existing ones.

""You Can Still Get Windows 10 for Free from Microsoft’s Accessibility Site"

If you still Want Windows 10 for free you can still get it. You have to check that you need it for Accessibility use but Microsoft doesn't check. Any one can still get it for free. They do not have an end date for this so don't know how long it will last. Microsoft said they think people with Accessibility did not want to upgrade as it wasn't supported. But Microsoft now is saying the August 2 upgrade will support Accessibility.

now that it's August, this is moot. My laptop never upgraded automatically, and it's still tickin.

chit chat

Upgraded main desktop computer to windows 10 and kept windows 7 on older laptop. I am happy with both and how they work. Wife and kids use strictly MAC's and think I am nuts for using PC. Each to his own I guess. I always assemble my own desktop computer from parts and have never wanted to spend what Apple wants. They do make a fine machine though, I have to admit.

Yes, Microsoft's big Windows 10 (Version 1607) update, dubbed the 'Anniversary Update', is to launch tomorrow, August 2nd. The update will be sent out to Windows 10 users over a period of days - everyone won't get this update at one time.

It does appear (like some have reported) that Microsoft plans to keep Windows 10 and continuously update it with new versions and features. If true, users won't have to deal with learning new unfamiliar operating systems (98SE, XP, Vista, 7, 8, etc.), but instead will just receive newly developed enhancements and modifications over-time with automatic updates. I really like that idea! This makes getting Windows 10 even more important...

Caved In

I had decided not to upgrade to Win 10 some time ago. The main reason was it's incompatibility with some old software I still need and use. A recent incident however caused me to change my mind.

On 7/29, coincidentally with the demise of the free Win 10 download offer, one of my three PC's lost the ability to receive Windows updates. Its a laptop running Win 7/64 bit Ultimate that I use mostly for travel. When attempting to check for updates, the process hangs at 0% and remains there indefinitely.

I searched the net and found hundreds of blogs from others with the same issue. After spending 2 days on the problem using a variety of suggested "fixes" (including one from Microsoft), I did as several bloggers suggested and went ahead with the damn upgrade.

It's downloading it now via the free "accessibility" loophole mentioned by Mgarledge

That is strange. It fixed my Win 7 auto update problem and MS Security Essentials failure to detect daily updates.

I'm curious, what version is your C:\windows\system32\wuaueng.dll ? Mine goes from version 7.6.7601.19046 (date modified October 20, 2015) to version 7.6.7601.23453 (date modified May 13, 2016) after installing the patch.

I'm afraid I can't answer your question since I upgraded the machine to Win 10 and deleted the file with all my notes.

The patch you recommended was suggested by a number of bloggers and was one of the first fixes I tried.

It appears I've traded one battle for another though. Now I have to come up with all the Win 10 drivers I need for my antiquated software.

No problem but wait a sec... did you mean driver for antiquated hardware? Software do not need drivers. Anyway, good luck finding Win 10 drivers.

Drivers

chewbacca,

There are indeed software drivers, (well really they are API's)

Like the hardware drivers that interface with specific hardware components, software drivers interface (usually referred to as API's) with other software products (usually 3rd party software). Sometimes the "Hardware Drivers" are required to change. Sometimes to resolve programming errors, sometimes to implement a new function supported within the hardware component. In any case, it's sufficient to state, having the correct driver for the OS and the hardware is crucial for the system to functionally optimally from purely an OS / HARDWARE perspective.

Strictly as a way of example, throughout the years, "Software Drivers" that are operating system and sometimes fix level dependent, have been predominantly interfaced from third party products to "DataBase" products.

The Database product will provide usually provide the "Driver" or "API" that either interfaces to other operating system API's or internal Database API's.

Then for any number of reasons, the existing interface to the Database application changes. Sometimes these "Drivers" or "API's" are OS level related. Some are because of a change to the (in this discussion) the "Database" software because of new releases or fixes within an existing software level.

Some don't have a complete grasp of where the hardware "Driver" and their programmatic interfaces (API's) end API's to other software products begin. Many folks just view all of them as "DRIVERS."

Fortunately, or is it unfortunately, I forget now, I've been on all sides of this discussion for all to many reasons.

Never argue with a pig. It makes you look foolish and it anoys the hell out of the pig!

It's a start

The new Windows 10 update is a start, especially the ability to add extensions to the Edge browser. Sadly, only 13 extensions are now available from the Windows Store. It's good that AdBlock Plus and LastPass are among the 13 but I think I'll stick with Chrome for now until MS offers more Edge-compatible extensions.

CraigW wrote:

I'm wondering if MS is going to "Vett" the extensions submitted to the "Windows Store" much like Apple did / does with thingys that get placed into the place where you install apps onto Apple Products.

This might become a "choke point" for certain kinds of "extensions" just because they aren't liked, not because of a technical reason where the "extension" is malware or soothing.

Quite likely, I bet. I hope they don't do things link refusing a Norton Toolbar extension to make people give up and use Windows Defender and stuff like this.

As far as I can tell right now, Edge only accepts extensions from the Microsoft Store's extension tab, and as I said before, there are only 13 extensions available right now and only two that I felt worth installing (password manager and ad blocker).

Agreed it's supposed to self delete the Window.old folder (although I've seen reports of PCs not doing this), but does this hold true for the Windows10Upgrade folder as well?

Windows.old folder

My Windows.old folder's date is 8-5-16
But some of my folders inside of Windows.old are:

inetpub 12/2/2015 (the date I bought the Laptop)
History 8-5-2016
temp 12-2-2015

PerfLogs 10-30-2015
empty folder

Program files 8-5-2016
Lots of folders different dates

Program files (x86) 8-5-2016
Lots of folders different dates

Recovery 8-5-2016
Empty

Users 12-2-2015
3 folders 8-5-2016

Windows 8-5-2016

some 8-5-2016 but most different

I thought it interesting that the Recovery folder was empty.

When you "customize" your build, it sometimes takes a specialized software install so the date is closer to your purchase / ship date ... not always but sometimes..
