I am currently running windows 8.1 on my laptop, however a pop up window keeps

appearing saying that my pc is scheduled to upgrade to windows 10 on Saturday 12th March.

Despite the fact that I clicked cancel to cancel the upgrade, another window opened advising me to "upgrade now" or "upgrade later", and does not appear to have cancelled the upgrade.

What do I do ??

Go to your update settings and change it to " Download updates but let me choose whether to install them "

We could do with some help from you.

It's silly to cancel the upgrade to Windows 10, it is the most secure yet and it is free. Windows 8 is not supported by Microsoft except for security updates and soon will there will be no support at all and Windows 7 is nearing it's support life.

 

If you don't get Windows 10 now while it's free, and you wish to upgrade when the others are debunked you will either have to fork out a few hundred or make a permanent subscription.

How can you say it is the most secure when it hasn't even been around for a year yet?

 

It will continue to be free for much longer than they say, they are desperate to get people to move to it.

I dont get why people dont like win 10. Its sleeker, faster, more secure, more stable, more compatibility. It seems the ONLY peopel that have an issue are the ones using 10 year old tech where mobo compontents arent supported, and even the manufacturer of the hardware itself gave up support years ago.

Any advice i give is my own and is based solely on personal experience. If in any doubt about a situation , please contact a certified legal representative or debt counsellor..

You can even install it, and use something like classic shell to get the old start menu back. Couple of other good programs out there to modified notifications etc, and youll never even know you changed versions apart from how better your system runs overall

I work in IT, so many of our clients have automatically updated to Windows 10. Our work load has doubled with software not working, drivers not installing, WiFi / sound not working, a few have not been able to log back in after the upgrade.

 

We not have to bodge windows in order to prevent this upgrade, which only lasts a few weeks before it is trying to do it again.

 

Last week I had to perform 7 downgrades.

 

I did install this on my Dell laptop which is 2 years old, WiFi stopped working completely, after reinstalling drivers, it now barely works with constant drops in connectivity. Office 2016 and Windows 10 currently have a bug which makes it difficult to write emails, several of our clients have this bug.

If you work in IT you should have contacted the hardware manufacturers in advance for any software you'll need as almost all of them protest it for months on the dev builds ms release. And as for software, unless it is a specialised piece of kit, the developers usually do the same. The specialised ones will likely charge you as they provide software just for your company. All this usually happens months before the op even hits an actually release build or date

In Windows 10 there is a setting that if you are on a battery laptop the wifi is turned OFF as an 'energy saving' feature. This is dead simple to disable.

 

Windows 10 saved an older laptop from going to the local tip, it made it run far faster and solved a lot of the mismatched drivers problems the laptop kept having.

Yes spoke with Lenovo and HP and both said 'should work, but we can't guarantee it'.

 

The specialised software has only just became compatible with Office 2013. It is not compatible with Windows 10 for sure as we deal with them often. Thats why we have to try and prevent the upgrade which doesn't always work.

I'm sure I could have got it running on Windows 7 just as well.

Prefer Ubuntu Studio myself, too much spyware and phoning home to Redmond in Win 10, in fact the telemetry and tracking included in can cause breaches of legal compliances regarding data security for Corporate user.

Done that, set keyboard to UK English as well, set as default, still not working.

 

Really hate the forced updates, I turn my laptop on some mornings to find I can't use it for 40 minutes while it updates. I want to restart it now, but only given @Update and [email protected], @Update and [email protected] (Note the stupid US layout!) Brilliant OS!

Not an old laptop. And old hardware doesn't cause boot errors. This is purely a logical issue.. Not to mention, Windows upgraded to Windows 10 on this laptop, if it was 'ancient', then it shouldn't have done it!

 

Windows 10 is a pile of s***
