Tried multiple times to do Windows 10 Anniversary upgrade on desktop

Q: Tried multiple times to do Windows 10 Anniversary upgrade on desktop

I just joined this forum today, so I am brand new.

Both my desktop and laptop were Windows 7 systems that I successfully updated over a year ago to Windows 10.

The desktop never changed the version showing when I use the winver command - still Windows 10 Build 10240. The system was an upgraded desktop purchased on ebay from a company that refurbs and upgrades the computer.

I tried to upgrade both of them to the new Anniversary version of Windows 10. The laptop updated perfectly the first time. It is also a HP system. The laptop version shows 1607 OS Build 14393.82

I have not had any errors.

I am not a hardware person, so I spent a long time researching how to run reports to answer the questions for the System Specs. I am attaching the reports from SiSoftware Sandra and CPU-z in case I did not correctly report some of the details.

I hope that someone can help me.

If not, can you tell me if I explained this well enough to ask Microsoft for help? I am a bit intimidated by that.

Thank you so much in advance,

Sally

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.)

Hello everyone,

I came here to ask you for some help. First of all, I would like to state that I am from Czech Republic and I have already made few topics on different forums in our country with the problem that I am facing and yet, there is no solution for it.

Let's get started. Here is my build according to the TSG SysInfo you are recommending.

Tech Support Guy System Info Utility version 1.0.0.2
OS Version: Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate, 64 bit
Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i7 CPU 930 @ 2.80GHz, Intel64 Family 6 Model 26 Stepping 5

Hard Drives: C: Total - 953866 MB, Free - 707425 MB;
Motherboard: MSI, MSI X58 Pro-E (MS-7522)
Antivirus: None

I just made a clean install of Windows to get rid of everything and to start from scratch. Because I just bought that Radeon R9 recently.

Now, what is my problem. As I said, I just bought that R9 recently, mounted it, installed drivers and everything was just about fine. For like a week maybe. Then my desktop began to give me BSODs randomly. But it also denied to save the minidump or memory of the BSOD for me. But I managed to catch the code of the BSOD which is:
Code:
0xA0000001
0x00000005
0x00000000
0x00000000
0x00000000
After few days the BSODding was gone. But instead of BSODding, my desktop is now giving me blackouts. I thought that its the PSU, but guys on few forums told me that it is not (?). I got 800W PSU.
I am just sitting here all nervo... Read more

Hey, I just built myself a desktop for the first time, and although everything is working just fine, I run into a lot of problems with BSOD's, freezes, and crashes. The three BSOD's I've experienced are as follows in the order that they happened:

CACHE_MANAGER - 0x00000034 - Ntfs.sys and ntoskrnl.exe

DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL - 0x000000d1 - athurx.sys and ntoskrnl.exe

SYSTEM_THREAD_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED - 0x1000007e - dxgkrnl.sys and nvlddmkm.sys

The first one was in a League lobby, the second one was while I was downloading Windows Updates, and the third one was while I was modding Skyrim. There was nothing in common for any of these besides two of them sharing a .sys file.

My computer also froze while trying to open Teamspeak, and Skype crashes randomly.

Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks!

Counterfeit installations such as yours contains heavily modified code that causes the installation to behave it unexpected ways. Analysing BSOD's and determining their causes on these sorts of installations is very unreliable.

My recommendation is to start with a clean slate, and install a genuine version of Windows. This will minimise the problems you are experiencing, and make subsequent diagnosis of BSOD's far more reliable.

My desktop pc is running Win 10 Vers. 1511.  I've tried repeatedly to install the Anniversary Upgrade Vers. 1607 - always without success, with the error code 0x80070005.  A Microsoft technician queried whether the pc is able to install the Anniversary Upgrade.  I never thought of this as a problem and I hope someone can help me to find the answer.

I'm afraid I took advantage of the 'free' Windows 10 upgrade last year; biggest mistake I've ever made, but I've learned to live with it. But today there were multiple problems and now I am effectively frozen out of my laptop, a Vostro 3550. I know that it's not one of the pcs tested by Dell for the operating system and I'm (sort of) OK with that. But a rather rude and spectacularly unhelpful Microsoft technician told me very forcibly that my laptop is 'incompatible' with Windows 10 and that therefore there is nothing they can do to help me and nor will they now try as it is pointless as I can't even use the laptop with the new upgrade of 10. Surely that can't be correct? I have grown to pretty much hate Microsoft in the last 12 months but can they really have decided that my laptop is obsolete? And not told us? Anything anybody can tell me here will be greatly appreciated. And I'll try to gain access to my laptop again...

I have held off going from Win 7 to Win 10 for a number of reasons, including several hardware upgrades over the last 6 months. (I actually have one more hardware upgrade I would like to do, going to a M.2 drive once a 500 GB drive comes out, which may or may not happen soon.) Not in a hurry as Win 7 is working fine.

So, browsing this forum occasionally, I see the Windows 10 Anniversary Update is coming out soon-ish, no firm date. Plus, the end of the "free" upgrade period is also coming up.

Is there any advantage to waiting and seeing if the Windows 10 Anniversary Update comes out first, and performing the upgrade on that version as opposed to doing an upgrade now, and then updating with the anniversary edition? It is possible that the free upgrade period could be extended a bit as well (not starting a rumor, just thinking) that could allow this to happen.

A:Upgrade from Win 7 and Windows 10 Anniversary Update edition

Perhaps, upgrade now and get to know how Windows 10 works, so that by the time " anniversary update" comes along, you will enjoy it more.

Free upgrade period appears to be unchanged, at least for now. Nothing is definite. Never say never.

Hi,
I previously upgraded from Windows 8.1 to 10, but the Anniversary Update will not complete properly and I've been stuck on v1511 for a few months now.
The installation goes through most of the steps but on reboot it just goes to a black screen with the dell logo and the endless spinning dots.  The error message after rolling back is: 0xC1900101 - 0x30017 ("The installation failed in the FIRST_BOOT phase with an error during BOOT operation".
I've tried the following based on other forum posts, unfortunately without success:
1)  Leaving this running overnight.
2)  Unplugging all USB devices.
3)  Installing upgrade from USB drive.
4)  Installing from a clean boot.
5)  Installing with wireless adaptor disabled.
In each case it hangs at the spinning dots.  After a few forced reboots the upgrade rolls back fairly quickly to the previous version.  One thing I haven't tried is a clean install, as if it fails I'll not have anything to roll back to.  Also it's unclear if my existing Windows 10 license will carry over.
Any help appreciated.

Hi ,

The Upgrade installation has been absolutely successful , no problem at all.

A:windows 10 Anniversary upgrade created a recovery partition

You can check which recovery partition is registered with the command reagentc /info from elevated command prompt. You'll see something like this:

Dear all,
here's a weird issue with an Optiplex 3030 AIO on a customer site...
The system was initially bought with Windows 7 Pro SP1 and back then in late 2015
updated to Windows 10 Pro. Everything was OK so far with this setup - no issues at all.

However - this specific 3030 AIO tries to apply the anniversary update (1607) as well - but fails.
When it's doing this from within windows itself it reboots automatically (as part of the update process)
and starts applying the update - but will hang there at 30% for days (started update at friday afternoon - met customer at monday... and the Optiplex 3030AIO still showed the spinning circles
at 30 percent.
We tried this 3 times within the last 8 weeks (and cleaned up SoftwareDistribution\ folder after each fail) with no success in installing the anniversary update. After a cold reboot - Windows 10 rolls back
to the previous version and keeps working fine until the Windows Update magic decides that it's time
for the automatic upgrade again...
When this happened for the 4th time (earlier this week) we removed this Optiplex 3030 AIO from
the customer site and thought it would be good to reinstall from scratch -  using the latest installation media (USB) offered by the most current media creation tool.

Problem - we cannot even do a clean install of the anniversary release - although DELL claims that
the Optiplex 3030 AIO is fully supported (see SLN297954 in DELL knowledge base).
When doing so it never finishes ... Read more

Hi--

I'm new here...and desperate! I ordered an Insipron 570 desktop from Dell Outlet last week. It was delivered today, and has randomly restarted itself at least five times since then. I called tech support and all they offered was to help me do a system restore. But if it's happening the first time I touched the computer, I don't think that's the issue. Plus I couldn't really understand the guy, as he was talking too fast, with too thick an accent for my abilities.

I (think I've) attached the dmp files for the crashes, and I hope someone can help me figure out what they mean! This is my first Windows machine in 5 years, and I don't want to regret it too soon!

Seeing all your dumps, and adjusting them with your statement, I haven't got a stop 0x124 dump. But it is a hardware related issue.

As everything is started after you have changed two hardware elements, we can easily narrow it down to these two, and these two elements can cause crashes.

We can guide you through the process. But as those are new, the tests may make the warranty void. Better you consult with the vendor from whom you purchased the new parts, ask them to test those for you. And if those are faulty, claim for replacement.

Ever since I started using Windows 8, both my HP Pavilion desktop and Sony Vaio Pro 13 has explorer.exe crash pretty often. The Vaio crashes more often - multiple times a day - maybe because it's my main computer now and I use it more often. Upgrading to Windows 8.1 didn't make a difference. Crashes are sometimes caused when I try to copy a folder, right click on a disk image or USB drive, right click on a file, or even when not while using it. Sometimes it crashes when I'm just watching a movie and it's pretty annoying because it shows the taskbar over the full screen movie after it restarts.
So far, I haven't lost any data, but I want to get this fixed before anything really bad happens. Is there a way to upload a crash dump or something so someone can take a look at this problem? I have similar programs installed on both computers, so I'm guessing it's a specific program that's just buggy with Windows 8 (btw, I have never had this problem with Windows 7 on my old macbook, so yeah...)

The HP desktop specs:
Ivy Bridge quad core i5 and
AMD 7770 graphics card
256gb Sandisk Extreme SSD
6GB DDR3 dual channel

Sony Vaio Pro specs:
Haswell i7 ultra low voltage
Integrated Intel 4400 graphics
8GB single channel LDDR3

A:Windows explorer.exe crashes multiple times a day

Check Event Logs for clues and answers.

Recommend AVG removal to test, although it's probably not the problem.

You can not lose data and nothing bad can happen (unless there is malware present.) The issue is very common and happens from 3rd party junky software.

If you have poorly encoded media files, and you navigate to the folder with them, or a folder above them where explorer tries to make thumbnails, those can cause it too.

The problem only happens on my desktop computer, which I recently built, but works just fine on my laptop. Everything on the desktop is new except for the video card, which I bought used. It's possible I bought a defective video card.
 
Anyways, it seems to happen most often when I'm zooming in and out of the timeline, I recorded a video screenshot of it happening here: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B2QTL61Pc2UVVDFmRFNJLXZaN1k/edit?usp=sharing
 
 
 
How can I troubleshoot specifically what is causing camtasia to crash so often?

I am using Dell 14R laptop, upgraded from windows 7 home premium 64bit to Windows 10 64bit
I had done a hard reset and installed all software again from start.
Every thing was nice but one day my laptop showed BSOD with BAD_POOL_HEADER error.
I think it is related with my usb DATA card (BSNL evdo ue 100 prithvi)
Now when I start laptop either one of the two happens.
(1) Blue screen boot menu (where I can select any other OS if I installed).It looks really nice and I think this is introduced in win 10.I have never seen this type of menu in windows 7)
If this happens and when I select to boot in windows 10, it just boot within 7 sec (very Fast for me)
Now when I connect my usb DATA card , it shows a new drive in "This PC", and then I can install software for my DATA card.
Actually the software is already installed in laptop but it shows I have to install it again everytime I reboot my Laptop.I think some driver related issue.
Now when I uninstall the software of DATA card (so that I can install it again), in the half way of uninstallation process , my laptop shows BSOD with BAD_POOL_HEADER error.
This whole thing (which start from Blue screen boot menu to BSOD with BAD_POOL_HEADER error)
happened more than 5 times and I think it will continue till it resolved.

This is the strangest error I have EVER seen in XP. I find no mention of this phenomenon anywhere on the web so perhaps I am the first? I surely hope not.

I have a Dell laptop with an integrated keyboard (i.e. built-in). Suddenly, and with no good reason, today my keyboard is acting strangely. Some letters I have to hit 3 times before they type. Others twice. And yet others behave as normal. The correct letter will eventually appear but my Lord no one should have to hit any character on the keyboard more than once.

I need this fixed ASAP because I am taking this PC out of the country with me and I have to be productive.

Help!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
 

A:Windows XP - Keyboard - some letters I have to type multiple times for them to appear

Laptop keyboard problem

This could be a failing keyboard matrix, fairly simple to order a new one from Dell and fit. Or it could be the keyboard software faulty. A way to check for a failing keyboard, is to plug in a separate keyboard, into a USB socket. If all works well, then the fault is the Laptop's keyboard. Hope that helps, if only to eliminate one possible problem.

I am having a very similar problem to the user in this post:  http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/614741/windows-7-computer-is-trying-to-logon-to-my-router/
 
However, I am experiencing these multiple failed logins from different computers in my house, at different times. Each time it is the same pattern of 3 dozen or so logins with different usernames, all at about the same time. I have 2 Win7 computers that attempt these logins, and 1 Win8.1 that also does it. I also have a Win10 system (new) that does not do this. I came to this conclusion from the originating IP addresses.
 
When the logins happen, they appear to be in a burst, and a given computer will only attempt these logins every 36 hours or so. My router log is also peppered with DoS attack messages which appear to be from TWC DNS servers (?). Not sure if this is related or not.  
 
I have a new Netgear C7000 router, and I'm new to TWC. I have run Avast anti-virus, Spybot, Malwarebytes, and tdsskiller, all report clean. Also interestingly enough, although these logins go on in the background they do not appear to affect my network performance at all.
 
From Googling some of the weird login names (e.g. TMARDLKT93319) I found the other user's post with the same behavior on this forum. I also found a Python script called RouterHunterBR that apparently tries various router login user/pass combos looking for vulnerabilities.  Here is a link to this script:  https://g... Read more

I've seen many of these type of threads covering these two updates, but none of them describe my particular situation.

This may be a long post so please bear with me.

I was doing a fresh install and i decided to keep track of all the steps involved because i'm a nut job like that, lol.

When I looked in my update history, everything looked normal as you can see in the image below.

I then set windows update to check for updates, but let me decide what to download and install, and what came up is shown in the next image.

So I thought to myself, here we go again, repeat updates. But then I checked the optional updates, and things started to get a bit weird.

So since this was a test system, I decided to install them and see what would happen. I installed the two from the important tab, rebooted, and then installed the one from the optional tab, and rebooted. This was the result.

Pretty weird huh? On the installed updates list, KB2952664 and KB3035583 only show up once each.

I haven't been using Windows 7 for very long so maybe I am reading this wrong? I'm still not completely clear on the differences between the update history and the installed files. Sometimes the files in one list are not in the other.

Has anybody else noticed this stuff?

P.S. - yes I did a google search and a forum search before making this thread. lol.

I can't access the internet because it makes the computer so slow. Somebody please help!

As you have a Dell, it is probable that the agent.exe you have showing is a Dell process that is not essential. You could try disabling it using Msconfig, and see if it improves things.

Hi!

I hope yall are doing well and that you can possibly help me figure what is wrong with my computer and help me fix it!

I have an Acer Aspire that I purchased in July. Over the past month, it has failed to start multiple times. It does this when I leave my computer on for a while...the screen will just go black. And I have to do a hard power off. Only to open it up and do the Windows Restore or whatever it is called. It has done this also upon starting the computer after I've shut it down the usual way. It doesn't do this every time. But I'd say 2 out of 3.

I have chosen the advanced restore options (restore the computer to a previous point in time). Picked a date that was listed and then it was restored.

Only to continue "failed to start" processes over and over again. I'm not going to try right, but If I were to shut down and reboot right now...I am almost certain it would do it again. It has literally done this around 15 times.

It has given me a couple of different reason:
Last week it said: Root Cause Found: Unspecified changes to system configuration might have caused the problem. Repair Action: System Restore
Result: Failed Error Code: 0x1f

Yesterday, it failed to start again and gave me the following error codes:
0x1f (again) AND System Files Integrity Check & Repair- Failed: error code: 0x490

How can I go about addressing and fixing this issue?

Your help will be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance

A:Windows Fails to Start Multiple Times. Err Codes: 0x1f and 0x490 etc

Boot into the Win7 DVD or System Repair Disk to run a few Startup Repairs to see if it finds anything to repair.

If not then from the bootable recovery Options list run System Restore to the earliest Restore point to see if you can get before the problem.

If not boot into Command Line option to run SFC /SCANNOW Command

Run a full Malwarebytes scan in Safe Mode if necessary, or use a bootable AV as shown in Troubleshooting Windows 7 Failure to Start which has every other possible step to clear up boot problems with Win7.
