Q: How do I remove Windows Steady State to upgrade to Windows 10 Pro, version 1511, 10586.

I have downloaded Windows 10 Pro,version 1511,10586 but cannot instal. I am told that Windows Steady State is not compatible and it should be uninstalled. When I click on Uninstall I am informed that I must do this myself. However, WSS
is not listed in programs in Control Panel and I am at a loss as to how I can uninstall or where and how to find WSS. Please help. Papi J.

Preferred Solution: How do I remove Windows Steady State to upgrade to Windows 10 Pro, version 1511, 10586.

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.)

Upgrade to Windows 10 Home, version 1511, 10586 will not download and install. However the updater keeps telling me it is ready for installation, then is decides on it's own to restart any damn time it wants to. For a while, I had control over this. Then, like a dummy, I decided to see if there were any updates. MS snuck a piece of software in during the look see, and now it's back to doing what it wants. I'm developing an irrational hatred for Windows 10

I would like to know how I can take absolute control of my Windows Updater. Furthermore, I'd like to force this update to download and control whether it is installed or not. I don't seem to be able to get any information on it. Is it even necessary?

If someone can help I would really appreciate it. TIA andythebeagle

A:problem with upgrade to windows 10 home, version 1511, 10586

You can download the Windows 10 ISO from Microsoft's Tech Bench site. The standard version is Windows 10 (others are restricted) and it can install/update both Windows 10 Home and Pro, depending on previous version (for upgrade) or serial (for clean-install). Download 32-bit or 64-bit according to your present Windows version.

A warning for English: There are two choices for English which are misleading. If you download the wrong language version you cannot use it to upgrade your present Windows version!

To save you the trouble:

"English" = American English (US) which most users have when installing the English version of Windows.

"International English" = British English (GB) which are mainly used in UK. This version cannot be used to upgrade English US Windows! Beware!

The windows update 'Upgrade to Windows 10 Enterprise, version 1511, 10586' fails with 'Windows can't be installed because this PC has an unsupported disk layout for UEFI firmware'.

This PC (laptop) is running Windows-To-Go (Windows 10) from a an external USB SSD. It has been running this way for a few months now without any issues. The 'original' system, i.e. the internal SSD of the laptop is running Windows 8.1 Enterprise and I had created the Windows-To-Go installation from there.

My Disk Management looks like this:
Disk0 (offline when using Windows-To-Go): 300MB (Recovery Partition), 100MB (EFI System Partition), 97GB (Primary Partition - Windows 8.1 Enterprise), 140GB (Primary Partition)
Disk1 (online = USB SSD): 350MB FAT32 (System, Active, Primary Partition), 238GB NTFS (Boot, Page File, Crash Dump, Primary Partition)

Any ideas how I can get the update version 1511, 10586 to install?

Hi donnyboy and welcome to Tenforums.
You could try downloading the ISO and performing a repair install using an in-place upgrade.

Basically, you right-click and mount the ISO, then run setup.exe from it.

Easiest way to both download and create a USB flash drive is Media Creation Tool:

Option two in the above tutorial except on step 7 select USB flash drive and have an 8gb USB flash drive available. The flash drive you make can be used to upgrade Windows 7/8/8.1/10 to Windows 10 version 1511 and can also be used to boot from and clean install Windows 10.

You had been using Windows Update which you have failed to install 10586.

Consider trying the other method also recommended by Microsoft itself.
Download the Media Creation Tool (MCT)

Make sure you select the same language, same bit version and same Windows Edition as the one you are now running.
https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/soft...load/windows10

Once it is downloaded, run the Tool > select Create installation media for another PC.
That will begin downloading the ISO file to your computer.
When it is downloaded, right click at the ISO file > click Mount > click Setup.exe.
That will begin installing.
You have the choice of keeping your settings, files and apps, or keeping nothing.

I have been trying for a full week now, to no avail. Whenever I apply the update, it goes to the "Restarting" screen...and gets stuck there indefinitely. Even after a few hours, it's still on that screen. So ultimately I have to force shutdown my PC (after which I can use it as per normal). I also do not believe I have any malware on my PC (have scanned multiple times with Kaspersky just to be sure).

I had updated to Windows 8 > 8.1 > 10 on this same PC before and never faced a single issue. I also never mess around much with default system settings.

Meanwhile, for my laptop, the update went extremely smoothly.

Disable (preferrably uninstall) your Antivirus utility before attempting the upgrade.Restart a few times then try again.Disable General USB Devices (example - Smart Card Reader).If you are using a SCSI hard disk, make sure you have drivers available for your storage device on a thumdrive and it is connected. During Windows 10 setup, click the Custom Advanced Option and use the Load Driver command to load the appropriate driver for the SCSI drive.

MS made me update a couple of days ago. I just discovered this morning that it disabled Norton 360. It also removed CCLeaner, and turned off my Norton firewall. I have to reauthorize some other products but my main problem is that I don't know if I have antivirus anymore..
I try to turn Windows Defender on and it tells me that it is off but I have no option t turn it on. Norton wont open, is no longer on the bar at the bottom but is listed in "APPs", but like I said, wont open.
I tried to reinstall but I get a popup in the lower right telling me that Norton 360 wont run on this version of Windows.
It comes free with Comcast/Xfinity and has always worked well, until now. I did manage to turn the Windows firewall on. I set the default browser to EDGE, which I DO NOT like because it rearranges all of my favorites.
I cannot find an answer. I am just about ready to move to a MacBook for regular use. I have an offline computer for audio work. I have not upgraded it to W-10 and frankly I'm scared to. It has no antivirus because it has no email and very limited online use... ok, I digress.
What do I do to get Norton Working?
I posted the question on the Xfinity board and will on the Norton forums.

Thanks for any help.

I fixed it, took most of the day. I finally rolled back to the earlier version of Windows. CCleaner came back BUT I checked, Norton had not scanned my system since 9/29/15!!! Prior to that it was scanning regularly I had not noticed. I am NOT happy with Windows-10. I've about had it. I'm about ready to get a MacBook for the web and keep my DAW on Windows. I hardly ever go online with it and it doesn't have anything on it except recording programs, Acronis, and a few other things.
I feel like dealing with MS is like dealing with the government, I just don't like the whole attitude of "WE Updated Your PC".. They shuld have said "You Updated Your PC"... small things like that matter, it shows their arrogance... and my files were NOT right where I left them.

my first post here since i start to be pretty desperate. My Win 10 (version 10.0 Build 10240) has downloaded and installed version 1511, 10586 now already five times. Every time it asks to reboot to finish the upgrade there pops up a window in the lower right corner that says "We couldn't finish installing updates - Select this message to learn more". When i select it, I'm taken to the Update section where it says my computer is up to date. And when i check for updates it always finds the update version 1511, 10586 again. And prepares to install, and starts to download (takes for ages), and actually installs. And then again asks to reboot. And fails.

I hope there would be some solution to this, I upgraded from Win7 and this has been working until now. I REALLY hope I don't have to go back to Win7 and lose tons of installed programs. Any help appreciated.

In viewing my "View your Update History", I see multiple dated entries for "upgrade failed to install".  On the Microsoft web forum are numerous entries on this issue. One suggested solution is to disable Windows Update Service, rename the SoftwareDistribution folder (C/Windows/SoftwareDistribution) to SoftwareDistribution2, re-enable Windows Update Service and try to install the update again. The HP Chat Agent didn't know about the issue and said he couldn't do anything about it.

4PCs: Vista1 Vista2 Win8 Win10 using Workgroup Network:
The older PCs still behave normally, can see each other and Win10.
The Win10 PC has two problems: 1) It can't see Win8 (sees only the other 3). 2) Win10 Net View in command prompt shows no PCs, just a message about "system error 1231" and "see windows help". An older similar thread mentioned the net view problem may be related to the computer browser service, but it's running.

This is my first attempt to install Windows 10, so I have no previous installs to refer to or compare. In the past 15 years of home networking I think this is the first time a PC was totally invisible to only one other PC. It looks like the problem is Windows 10, considering the strange result from the net view command.

Windows 10 update to 1511, 10586 freezes at "Preparing to install updates 32%".
When this happened I did a search and followed the following:
ran
net stop wuauserv
net stop bits
Restarted and tried deleting all in c:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution but some wouldn't, so..
Restarted, stopped the above processes and successfully deleted all under c:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution
Reran the update.
"Checking for updates" took 10 minutes and then it stopped with "There were some problems ...."
Clicked Retry and off it went for about 35 minutes until freezing on "Preparing to install updates 32%" once again.
I left it for another hour but no change to 32% (in fact its still there now).
Ive been running Windows 10 since August without an serious problems.
Basically - help please.

Seems to me you were using Windows Update to install Win 10 10586.
If yes, suggest that you try one of the following links and give it a try...............

Media Creation Tool :
https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/soft...load/windows10

Tech Bench :

My suggestions : assuming you are trying to update Win 10 10586 from an "older" Win 10 version.
1. Download the ISO from the link > save it to your computer.
Then RIGHT click at the ISO file > click Mount > click Setup.exe > installation will begin.

ok I found a free program from microsoft call windows steady state. Interesting free program. you can find it here well with disk protection on it stores everything on a cache file and upon restart of the computer it goes back to where it was before..

I was useing linux distros for a while now do to the constant trouble of keeping my conputer working right. I like windows do to the games and everything that windows have to offer. so If windows steady state suppose to protect your computer like this. why would one really need a antivirus software if it would be deleted after reboot.

I dont want to have to worry about and spyware or virus I dont want to have to worry about where I go or what I download. I just want to know if something happens I can go back easy with a simple reboot. so Why is there need for antivirus with this program

A previous question about how to uninstal Windows Steady State goes unanswered.  I presume Microsoft people monitor these posts, but they do not know how to uninstall Windows Steady State to enable the Windows 10 1511,10586 updates
to be installed.   It looks like I am stuck in a bog unable to move forward with Windows 10, so intend to roll back to my previous version and then consider my OS options.   
Is anyone aware of any major problems likely to be encountered by me taking this course?

Hi,

I installed Steady State on my laptop last year - Toshiba A100 Satellite. I decided to uninstall it a few days ago. Since that time, I cannot log on. I keep getting a "Please wait to log on while the Windows Steady State is being initialized" message.

The OS is XP Media Center 2006. I have tried Safe Mode, Safe Mode + Networking, trying the last know good configuration - same thing. I do have the recovery disks, but would prefer not to go that route as I would lose quite a few saved items.

Any advice would be appreciated.

Thanx.

Trying to use Windows Steady State to make some Kiosk pc's.

I want to restrict internet access to only a few websites. Problem is that when I check 'prevent internet access except for the websites below", it will not allow access to any websites on the web addresses allowed list.
It won't even go to the website that I have as the home page even when it is in the allowed list.

As soon as I uncheck Prevent Internet access, the account can go to anywhere on the web.

All my other restrictions are working perfectly.
 

A:Solved: Windows Steady State

Don't know if this will help or not...my experience in this neighborhood was limited to the older Windows Shared Computer Security Toolkit---I think that was the predecessor of Steady State.

This from the handbook is all I found on restricting sites in IE:

Home Page
In the Home Page box, you can type the Web address of the home page
you want to configure for the shared user profile. This is the home page
a shared user will see each time they open Internet Explorer.
Note: In the Home Page box, you can enter the protocol prefixes http: or https:
when you enter the Web address you want to specify for the home page of the
shared user profile.

Web Addresses Allowed
If you select the Prevent Internet access (except Web sites below)
option under Internet Explorer Restrictions, you can type the address
of the Web sites available to the user profile in the Web Addresses
Allowed check box. To enter multiple Web addresses, separate each
Web address with a semicolon; for example, type microsoft.com;
msn.com.
Note: Do not enter the protocol prefixes http: or https: in the Web Addresses
Allowed box when you enter Web addresses you want to allow the user profile
to access.For more information about parental controls and advanced Internet
filtering, see Windows Live OneCare Family Safety at:

Hi,

After I updated to the latest Windows 10 "upgrade" (Build 1511, 10586) released yesterday thru Windows Update, my system shows only the Wi-Fi icon on Taskbar instead of the Ethernet Network icon which it used to display earlier. I have a wired broadband connection, and keep my Wi-Fi Adapter settings "Disabled". Yet, the icon shows the Aeroplane mode of Wi-Fi icon on Taskbar, instead of the Network icon it used to display before this update. At times my wired BB connection tends to become unstable, so I need to keep track if the connection is down, before I do some critical activity on Internet, like large download (which I may be unable to Resume), or Netbanking or online shopping, etc.
How do I get the Network icon instead of the Wi-Fi icon on the Taskbar in the new Build 1511 ?

Thanks
Ramesh

I have windows steady state installed and up until now no problems now no matter what I do I cannot log into windows as the windows steady state has a dialog box up stating that it is updating and will restart the computer when complete.

Problem here is its not completing the update and not rebooting, if I try to access windows via double ctrl/alt/del as the administrator it has disabled the account and I cannot access via any other account, and no matter how many times I click "OK" of try to close the window the steady state message pops back up.

I have tried all SAFE MODE variations except command prompt and the dam windows steady state pops up.

Any suggestions?

Thanks

A:Windows steady state not updating or restarting

Ok, start your PC in Safe Mode, JUST Safe MODE.

Once you enter in safe mode go to My Computrer---->Manage----->Local Users and Groups------>Users.

Once you enter the users you will see that all the accounts are disabled. So, go to the desired accounts such as Administrator or your Username and right click. Once you right click you will see ticked the option "Account is Disabled". Untick it and you are back on track again. Proceed the same way with all the accounts you wish to enable, if you have more users in your PC.

Restart in normal mode and you will have no problem.

I hope I prevented you from killing your PC :)
