Windows 10 auto download

Q: Windows 10 auto download

I allowed the auto download of Windows 10. Now when I turn the computer on the desktop DOES NOT come on. I get a blinking screen continuously. What must I do? (yes I checked the monitor cable) 

Preferred Solution: Windows 10 auto download

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I don't want Windows 10, and have tried to disable/hide all updates that would install it to my computer. I have been at least partially successful; I no longer see the blue rectangular nag screen promoting Win 10.

Today, I was horrified to discover a hidden, 6 gig $Windows.~BT file folder on my C:\ drive, last modified today. I assume that this is for Win 10, and that Microsoft is using my bandwidth to railroad this OS into my computer despite my best efforts to say no.

I found a SuperUser thread indicating that I can delete this directory by: a) Press Windows key + R
b) Type: %windir%\system32\cleanmgr.exe
c) Hit Enter on your keyboard
I haven't tried this, don't know if it works, and am afraid that I'll make the 6 gig download start all over again.
Is there a way to get rid of these files once and for all, and insure that they never come back again?
Thank you in advance for your feedback!

don't worry, that is just windows update logs, it should be fine to delete.

I accidentally checkmarked the 'automatically download' option while downloading something and now I have no idea how to uncheck that option? I don't want everything I download off I.E. 6.0 to automatically download to the TEMP folder..it's not what I want.

-Is there a way to fix this?

A:how do I switch 'auto-download' off?

In IE6, click tools, internet options, security, internet zone, and scroll down til you see download options and change it there.

Or go to internet options, advanced and look under browsing. That might be the setting you are talking about.

The safest thing is to uncheck, or disable, install on demand. If you have install on demand enabled, you are subject to getting unwanted downloads of spyware, browser hijackers and unwanted junk.

I'm a new member....i think if you look at my name you will see i am not an expert when it comes to computers.....

I have a windows vista lap top....up to a few days ago, i was using ie8....i received an auto download message from microsoft....and agreed to the download....it was a package of 5 different downloads that took a while to complete. So i went on to other business....

It turns out, one of the five items was an installation of internet explorer 9.....when i saw that, i immediately tried to uninstall....after an hour of trying without success....i got in touch with a certified microsoft company....they told me they could fix the problem....well, after 2 days they couldn't....it turns out, the auto dowload ie9 was corrupt....

I called microsoft and they told me they could fix it, but it would cost $99!

I wonder if anyone else received a similar auto dowload on 2/21????

Or if anyone knows how to fix????

I want to download the Windows 10 drivers for my laptop. I want to store them as I intend doing a full Windows 10 install (not an upgrade)
But the website says: "This file will automatically self-install after downloading."
How do I simply save the drivers to a hard disk so that they are available when I install Windows 10?


A:Download drivers without them auto installing

Thank you for reaching out to us !
You can do that,how ever by following the steps:

upgrade and activate the current version OS to Windows 10 
using the windows ISO tool create a boot-able ISO file 

Follow up with a clean installation.
Note:Failing to to upgrade and activate windows 10 before clean installation may lead to activation issues.
The drivers can be stored locally and used at the time of clean installation.
Note that the windows upgrade will come with generic drivers after which you can remove the existing drivers and use the one stored locally.You can also download the drivers from the manufacturer's website and install it.

A:new tab king prompts auto download

Hi Condobloke,

Welcome to the Bleeping Computer forums.

It sounds like there may be either a configuration issue with New Tab King or with your Home Page settings in Firefox. Sometimes, when closing Firefox, it will ask you if you want to save your current tabs and have them reopened the next time you open Firefox. The behavior you are describing sure seems to fit this behavior. One thing you can do is to copy down the tabs that open when Firefox opens, then delete all the Home Page links. If that doesn't work, then I would suggest uninstalling New Tab King to see if the behavior stops happening.

You can actually do that the other way around too. Uninstall New Tab King, and then if the download still happens, copy the home pages that open, then delete them and see what happens.

Let me know what you choose to do so we can see if we can fix this.

Please use this information at your own discretion.

Hi All,

I'm thinking of getting a new Win8.1 laptop and then installing Win10. Where I live the internet (3G cellular) is slow and unreliable. The Win10 download is about 3-6GB.

Let's say I'm downloading Win10 and then my internet connection fails in the middle of the download. Then a few minutes later my net connection comes back on line. Will I lose all the data that was download and have to start over? Or will the Win10 download auto-resume from where it left off with no data loss?

Any one have any direct experience with this? Thanks,

A:Win10 download auto-resume from where it left off?

Hi All,

I just called Microsoft India and they said if I use the Window 10 Upgrade System Tray Icon to do the download then it will auto-resume with no data loss if the internet connection fails. She said if I try to download Win 10 Upgrade some other way then it does not have auto-resume and I'll lose the data and have to start over.

Just wondering if anyone can confirm this? Thanks!

I have 3G cellular internet here in India and it is unreliable and slow and often drops out. So auto-resume is an absolute necessity if I want to successfully upgrade to Win10.

Hi All,
I need help.
I have Download Accelerator Plus Ver8.5.
I wanted to download about 6 html files, the links of which are in a single page.
I used "Download All with DAP" option. All html files are downloaded.No problems.

But after downloading of each file, the html file is opened in a new IE window.
which means 6 new IE windows opened which I don't want.
Also I noted in the address bar of IE that the html address is the URL of internet and not the local folder address.

Another important aspect is when I use this feature to download multiple pdfs or pictures, this auto opening of files after download is not happening.

The issue is only with html files.

I am planning to download about 36 html files from a single web page.I don't want to see 36 new IE windows in my desktop.

Is there any way to disable this hindrance?

Hidy ho all,

I wanted to know if there was a program that would automatically download email attachments from an email address, then delete those attachments on the server?

I know outlook can do that, but this would be on a server, and outlook can be quite the resource hog when running for long periods of time (IE months, or years). As such, I can't really afford to use anything more then something very lightweight.

Mind you, I'm only interested in downloading the attachments, I couldn't care less about the emails in question.

Edit: I'm also not wanting to store those attachments in some sort of mail file only a mail client can read and pull data out of. it would be like me clicking on the file to download it, choosing where to save it, then downloading it.

A:Auto Download Attachments and Delete from server

Not really. Since the email is on a server not under your control, you have no idea if and when the email and attachment is finally gone.

I just purchased a Lenovo G570 laptop running Windows 7 Home Premium. This model has been around a long time and I'm sure it needs many driver updates. Is there a program or service (does not have to be free) that will scan this computer and detect outdated drivers and automatically download and install the appropriate new ones? Lenovo's website has a feature like this but does not apply to this particular model. Thanks very much.

A:Solved: Program To Auto-Detect & Download Drivers

They exist but they are not recommended. They make a lot of mistakes, they sometimes install bad drivers, some are ad-ware supported and may start popping things up on your screen, and you really can't do better than getting them directly from the manufacturer's site.

But "updating" drivers is not always a great idea. If a piece of hardware is working, why risk problems with a new driver? Drivers simply run hardware, like a light-switch, sort of. You wouldn't go through your house and replace all of them unless something was wrong with them, right?

Windows Update also installs drivers if an upgrade is believed to be needed for some reason. Most common hardware is supported.

I have Word 2002, SP3, for Windows Office XP Pro.

My problem is I want to permanently turn OFF the autocorrect options (all of them: correct initial capitals, correct first letters of days, etc etc, autoformat, as well as auto text and auto type).

Yes, I have unchecked all the boxes in Tools > Autocorrect Options, the problem is I have to painstakingly go though all the boxes every time I open Word and uncheck them. My setups are not remembered.

I can't figure out how to make these options stay set this way.

I've tried installing the Office Resource Kit and setting a system policy (though I am the only user on this PC), but no success.

I had to rebuild my system a month ago -- before that, I never had any problems, Word seemed to remember exactly my preferred set up and saved autocorrect options etc to the normal template.

I checked the normal template and it is in Doc Settings folder where it should be.

I searched the forums and Word help but can't seem to find any advice, mainly because most people usually run these options and they only wish to modify the instances where they apply, rather than permanently disable them.

Please help! Much appreciated! Thanks!

Hello All,

Please excuse my lack of Computing terminology when writing this - I am a complete novice in the use of a Computer having been entirely `self taught` on just the basics.

I clicked onto the `Get Windows 10` button on the Windows 10 upgrade onscreen display [the display that has the Time counting down to the expiry of the free Windows 10 upgrade offer] - a different onscreen display box appeared with the message `Starting download..... Once download is complete, you can start the upgrade, or schedule it for later`.

An Hour later there was no download amount that I would associate with the Windows 10 upgrade download.

My download amount in that period was just 14MB which I associate with my looking at Emails and a small update on my AVG Anti Virus Software.

I waited about another Hour before posting this as I had something else to attend to - now as I am about to submit this message the Windows 10 Download was supposed to start downloading almost 2 Hours ago - still no indication of a large download beginning.

I have a Download Meter on my Computer which I know to be really accurate but even if it was not I was expecting a `Massive` download when upgrading to Windows 10.

I am guessing that I will be advised to Close the Windows 10 download onscreen display box and try clicking onto `Get Windows 10` again but I wanted to check whether there might be a fairly long `Pre-download` process that is carried out prior to the actual download commencing and I did not...

A free download manager designed to integrate seamlessly with Windows 7 is now available from Microsoft. Dubbed the Microsoft Download Manager, the utility is designed, as the label implies, to help users administer their downloads beyond the boundaries of the browser. More often than not, downloading very large files can be problematic, especially in the context of an unreliable connection. It is precisely in scenarios like these that a download manager will carry out any download tasks to the end, unlike browsers missing this functionality.

?The Microsoft Download Manager enables you to download files from the Internet in a more reliable and faster way than using a browser alone. Using the Download Manager makes it easier to download large files such as an application or multimedia files,? Microsoft explained.

According to the Redmond company, the Microsoft Download Manager comes to the table with support not only for Windows 7, but also for Windows Vista and Windows XP SP2 and SP3. Microsoft Download Manager was designed to work with Internet Explorer 8, IE7 and IE6 but also with Firefox 3 and Firefox 2.

Hello everyone. I'd like to know why win7 64bit decides by itself to auto refresh a window minute and literally the next second or two later it does not.
Lets say, I save a pic from the net, just before I go into the browser I already have my downloads folder open. I save a couple pics and I go back to the open folder and the pics are there at the bottom (I sort by date modified). I go back to the browser save another pic or anything, I go back to the folder and the pic or whatever is not there, so i have to refresh myself. I was just in that folder 10 seconds ago I seen no reason for it to not refresh now when it just did it 10 seconds ago. Now, I have not changed any setting regarding this or any explorer action. I can't even find an auto refresh option anywhere.
So how is this possible? What the heck is wrong with this OS?

I must say, I will soon be at my wits end with this OS. I paid $300 to spent more time organizing and moving files around. A lot more time. They have really screwed up explorer this time around. Explorer in XP was essentially perfect (I never even touched Vista on my machines. My wife has Vista). I'm starting to believe that win7 was just a money grab and that of the many problems with this OS will not be fixed in any hotfix or service packs, but win8 will be all better just as long as you spend another $300.

A:Explorer windows auto refresh then don't auto refresh. Why?

We have a thread for this kind of thing. I can't find it at the moment. I think unsubscribed from it on accident, but I'm pretty sure its in general discussion. Explorer is working like it always does. It can be annoying that it doesn't always refresh, but I'm sure you can find a pattern, like how many added files it takes or how long it takes to "auto-refresh". The reason you don't here anything bad about Windows 7 is for three reasons. 1) you haven't looked hard enough. There are plenty of news stories with Mac lovers saying its Vista with a new paint job. 2) XP was as unstable as Charles Manson on Crack at the best of times when it first came out. 3) Vista was, well Vista. MS claimed it would run fine on 512MB of RAM, so people were installing it on old computers, and new computer were being bought that were seriously underpowered. When it wouldn't run worth a crap, everyone hated it. Not to mention the incompatibility issues that no one saw between 2000 and XP. If you didn't use Vista at all, the changes do seem a lot more drastic. If you don't like it, go back to XP SP3. Problem solved!!!!!!!

Will appreciate any help regarding this issue. 
My Gmail account is auto sending an email to all my gmail contacts without my knowledge until I saw reply posts of unsuccessful emails. Contents as such:
"Good Day.I just Uploaded a file,I would like you to view.Click Here to view. "
I too opened a similar email afew weeks back. Nothing seems wrong at first so I never really thought much about it.
Can someone help me on this? 
I have just changed my password for my Gmail. hopefully it stops the sending. but I want to know if my computer is infected or by using smartphones or tablets, will it affect the gadgets too? 
Thank you!

A SPAMmer does not need access to your Gmail account in order to use your email address.
They can use whatever SPAM-sending program they like to send out email using *-your-* email address in the Sender's field.
Then, if any of the email addresses they sent the email to happen to be invalid, the unsuccesful delivery messages would be returned to you simply because your email address was in the Sender's field.
In order to stop this, you would have to find the person using your email address and hang them by the neck until dead. ;)

Does anybody else here have a weird issue with the Auto setting on the keyboard backlight where it only works when the auto-SCREEN brightness is disabled?  If both are enabled, the screen will auto change correctly, but the keyboard stays off all the time. It still works with Fn-Space for off-low-high, but no auto enable. If I disable the Auto-Screen Brightness in Windows, the keyboard auto will start working correctly. Enable both, shine a flashlight at the top left of the screen and watch the brightness go up/keyboard turn off. Turn off flashlight and screen goes down, but keyboard backlight doesn't turn back on. Then, turn off the screen auto-brightness and shine a flashlight. The screen will (obviously) stay the same, keyboard backlight turns off. Turn off the flashlight and the keyboard will fade back on within a few seconds. Doesn't matter what version of the Intel UHD driver is installed (23.20, 24.20.100, etc), it does the same. Newest Intel sensor drivers, newest PM driver, etc all installed. SIF has been reinstalled multiple times. Does it in both Win10 Pro/Ent 17134 and 16299. Reflashing the BIOS and ME has no effect, full CMOS clear has no effect, hooking a debugger to the light sensor data stream shows it's changing accordingly to brightness.

Have had Y410p for years without this issue. Now when I move the mouse cursor across the screen, it auto clicks/auto selects (without me tapping or clicking) and then release automatically as well. It will do this continuously as I keep moving the mouse cursor with the Touchpad. This is super annoying and causes multiple issues with my ability do most things on my Lenovo laptop. The two biggest problems are: click buttons which I do not intend and selecting/moving icons & screens which I do not intend. And it makes it nearly impossible to use the laptop for gaming. I have downloaded and reinstalled the Touchpad ELAN driver (version for my O/S Windows 8). I have gone through Mouse Properities setting and ELAN Smart-Pad settings. I have disabled Tapping, but does not make a difference. I have set Sensitivity to max Low and then max High, but does not make a difference. Any ideas on how to solve this particularly annoying Touchpad issue? Help please! Thanks.

Disable TAPPING in the Synaptic control panel. See the screen shot via the Device settings tab and properties. TAPPING is unchecked - a useless feature and a easy way to wreck and operating system and/or loose files. Its far too easy to tap drag and drop a folder or worst without realizing it until its too late. If its a system fie/folder you likely won't boot the next time or you kill an application. I have been diabling this on notebooks for decades. DEADLY feature.

I run a server at night to run a program file and every now and then it crashes and comes up CLOSE program.exe as an error ( i turnred error reporting off - still comes up though)

Anyway since i cant get rid of this error message is it possible to have a prog to auto kill this when it crashes? OR

A prog that can restart the program/ process on a crash or hang?

A:Auto restart a process or auto kill on CRASH or HANG

Have a look in the Event Viewer through the control panel-> administrative tools. Look at both "system" and "applications" . If you can determine the program that is giving the error you will want to reinstall that troublesome program.

I use Windows 8 Pro and I have very strange problem.

I enabled display hidden and system files, but system auto-disable its... I make it about three times, always with the same result. I don't know what causes this problem, I can't reproduce its (it isn't after reboot).

Also I have similar problem with system restore.
I disabled it, but system turned it on again.

WTF?! Does my system better know what I need?!
I apologize for the tone, but it's really frustrating...

A:Hidden files - auto disable, restore auto enable?!

Hello lukasamd,

That's odd behavior.

You might consider resetting Windows 8.

Good day,
I use auto text and auto correct very frequently
Is there any way to put two columns in excel or access and programmatically import them to word ?


A:Ms word 2003 : Programming auto text or auto correct

See this - Inserting AutoText Using a Script and i am sure you can take a clue from there. I think you just have to call the excel file (with cell references) using the script. Just want to share what i found. Since your question wasn't replied to by experts yet, i thought i could post some tips to get you started until an experienced person intervenes and offers a perfection solution.
