[ExtremeTech] Windows 10 gets one last, desperate nagware update - Page 4

post #31 of 82
Best is to let it upgrade for free. Reserve your activated hardware ID. Log into your Outlook/hotmail ID. This binds the activation to your email. Then downgrade back to XP/Vista whichever fancier. This way, one can always have a valid license once they are fed up of XP's Virus festival.

Meanwhile I have received zero notifications and options to upgrade. Oh the beauty of the various Win editions.

The 2015/2016 version of Win10 will be outdated within a year or two.

Microsoft's board needs to do a what they did with Win8 and CEO Balmer and sack the Satya Nadella and rename and adapt the desktop Windows for the 60-70% percent of the world PC-users.
Microsoft is known to be very sensitive with design fashions and changing names on OS:es just to keep up the sale.

Else they can keep doing with Desktop Windows what they did with their fortune in the Mobile OS market.

Ran into the same issue a while back, you need to install this KB to update the windows update client, https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/3102810

@ski-bum
After the long wait, all the updates were there and that went fairly fast. Just the "searching for updates" was crazy long.

How fresh is the install and have any other updates been installed since the installation? If you can I would do a fresh install and install that update KB before any other updates and it should update just fine.

No need to question it; the statement is nonsense.

Bull? No, that is all the truckloads of manure from the Back to the Future trilogy combined.

When you try to update Windows7 it takes about 5 hours of "Searching for updates"
I think MS is down to about 2 servers for Windows7 updates.

There are updates which fix the issue and you should download them manually.

ski-bum PM me if you need the KB numbers. smile.gif

The June update Rollup is supposed to fix it definitely.

KB3161608 - June 2016 update rollup for Windows 7 SP1 and Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1


which includes the following:

I upgraded to windows 10 Pro from windows 7 Ultimate, because it fixed my stuttering in dota 2, but probably a clean install of winows 7 would fixed that also.
However i used custom install and turned every setting off so it is running good for now, just like windows 7 was. Will see later in the years.
There are few things i don't like, like i can get rid of cortana and the alphabet layout in the start menu for programs, the toolbars for quick instruments in windows explorer, the windows 10 sound, the ability to turn windows updates off (at least i can defer them which is highly recommended imo) and maybe somethings i can't think of right now.
