When looking for windows 10 update, all I get is infor for windows 7

Q: When looking for windows 10 update, all I get is infor for windows 7

I currently have windows 10 installed, and it is verified when I display SYSTEM from the control panel
Why does this happen? Windows 10 came with Dell when purchased.
Is there a indicator file stating windows 7?
If there is, how can I change it to reflect windows 10 which it should be showing.?

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 purchased a new notebook with Windows 7 in October. During the first weeks I uninstalled McAfee and replaced the harddrive. Since November Windows Update fails with error messages and defender does not start anymore. I made several virus scans (complete) with multiple antivirus programs but nothing showed up.Since it took my days to install various software, I do not want to re-install W7. I also have no good backup that I could restore. I am really surprised that there is not even a single entry regarding the error code in the Microsoft Knowledge base or elsewhere.I really would appreciate help.

After installing this updates, unable to filter recordset using array of bookmarks, there is an exception inside msado15.dll.
For example this vbscript:
DIM rs, v(2), ldx

Const adInteger = 3
set rs = createobject("ADODB.Recordset")
rs.fields.append "Id", adInteger

For ldx = 0 to 9

rs.movefirst: rs.find "Id=3"
v(0) = rs.bookmark
rs.movefirst: rs.find "Id=8"
v(1) = rs.bookmark
rs.movefirst: rs.find "Id=2"
v(2) = rs.bookmark

rs.filter = v
produces an Access Violation (0xC0000005) exception inside msado15.dll
Similar code on C#:
var rs = new ADODB.Recordset();

for (int i = 0; i < 9; i++)

I am using Windows 7 Professional with Service Pack 1.
Windows Update has lost my update history and hangs when I tell it to check for updates. Windows Update Troubleshooter reports "Windows Update error 0x80070057(2016-07-15-T-12_59_34P) Not Fixed". How can I get Windows Update working again?

Here is a detailed account of the problem:
Earlier today, I ran Windows Update and told it to install 15 important updates. It said it was downloading them, but stalled for 30 minutes at 0% done.
I rebooted my computer and re-ran Windows Update. It reported that there were no pending important updates. I clicked "View update history" and saw that the most recent 15 important updates had failed. I clicked "Check for Updates" and,
when it finished checking, Windows Update continued to report that there were no pending important updates.
At that point, I concluded that something was wrong with Windows Update. In an attempt to fix it, I downloaded and ran the Windows Update Troubleshooter (WindowsUpdateDiagnostic.diagcab). It reported one problem found: "Windows Update error 0x80070057(2016-07-15-T-12_59_34P)

I am trying to create a chart which can present data from many worksheets one at a time. I have the same data information in several worksheets and in the chart screen I want to be able to present an attribute of one worksheet and then once that is done show another attribute (on its own ie. that keeping the previous data on the chart) of the same worksheet or maybe even switch to differerent worksheets. Each worksheet stores the same information (same fields etc) but represent different sites where studies were performed. Essentially the chart lives in one worksheet but can draw from information from several worksheets.

Can this be done? I suspect not after extensive searching. I thought i may be able to create a drop down menu which allows changes in the chart like for pivot table charts.
I would appreciate any help in this matter.

Hey all,

Firstly I hope i have posted this in the right forum.

As the name states I can not use any of my windows security I know this is because of a fake anti virus i had at one point, I also can't install any other virus protection or firewalls onto my computer.

I'm assuming this has to do with what the virus has done with my computers registry, correct me if I'm wrong.

I want to restore my registry back to its default I have tried the reg restore /? command in cmd but it comes up with (see attached picture) and am not sure what this means or for the next step for me to take to continue the command.

Is there any down side to restoring my registry to its default as well?

Hi All

Newbie to the forum but not windows.

History: Went to install Windows 8.1 update last night. I first installed 8 updates (half of which were Office based) and then rebooted. I then ran the 8.1 update on its own - downloaded and installed without a hitch. Rebooted and all was well, or so I thought. This morning I tried to download some app from the Windows Store, it failed to load with a 0X80072F8F error (see below). I also tried Windows Update only to find that I was getting an error there as well, the same one! So, I decided to roll back my PC to a backup image taken on Monday and go through the whole process once again but first checked that I could access both the Store and Update, both were OK. I installed the 8 or so updates first, rebooted and checked access to the Store and Update again, both were OK. I then downloaded and installed the 8.1 update, rebooted and guess what, lost access to the Store and Update. I downloaded and ran the Windows Update diagnostic tool, that found some errors but was unable to fix them all (see below).

Anyone any ideas?

I tried using IE, Firefox and its the same thing.

Ive read in other forums that I need the windows updates to install the new windows live messenger, but I cant download any upgrade form the windows upgrade website. The disconnection or offline blank page appears every time I click any DOWNLOAD button.

I know that the page isnt being blocked by my AVAST anti-virus program.

Secondly when i log to MSN and click the link to get the windows live update. I get the installation menu and it starts downloading, but it always stops around 46% and tells the same error: 0x80004004. When i click the link that takes you to the solution problem in g live website, guess what???. I cant open the webpage because my it says that the page cant be opened due to my Internet connection????????

I dont know if its because of a configurated program in my computer that keeps blocking me or if its something else.

I appreciate anyone who can help me out with mi problem.

We've written before about Windows 10's new updating policy, and today we're seeing the real-world result for the first time. The Windows 10 Technical Preview, build 9849, is being updated to build 9860. That update will roll out automatically to members of the Windows Insider program, and it will be delivered through Windows Update.
The operating system upgrade is a little more heavyweight than a regular hotfix; systems will need to reboot to finish installation, and Microsoft says that the reboot will take longer than normal.
The major feature of the new build is that it contains the first iteration of Windows 10's notification center. At the moment, it's a simple collection of historic notifications. Microsoft says that future builds will add more capabilities to the notification center, such as the ability to take actions in response to notifications.

First major update to Windows 10 Preview, delivered through Windows Update

Some known problems:
Before talking about the new things, I will remind you that you are using a work in progress. As Joe said in his last post, we’re sharing things with you even though there are rough edges. This is the part of building Windows that you usually don’t get to see, since we work hard to smooth these out before it typically gets to you. There are likely many small bugs that you’ll encounter, but these are a few of the big ones that we think you should be aware of right away:

A:First major update to Windows 10 Preview, delivered through Windows Update

And they call this "slow" type updates? I'd not want to think what they'd be if these were on the fast track. 
One thing to keep in mind, that is if one has the chance, if there's installed security in the place of Windows Defender, remove it before upgrades. Otherwise, and was the case with me, it wouldn't work anymore, wouldn't repair, uninstall, nor could I enable Windows Defender until it could be fixed (I have an image, but am not going to bother). 
These early Technical Previews are the equivalent of Developer Previews of Windows 8 three years ago, which I knew existed, but never ran. I started on the Consumer Previews, and won't participate in the program anymore until these are available, hopefully by mid to late February. 
Windows has a tool called Disk2vhd, this may be a good time to install VirtualBox & test any installed Technical Previews out further, while they're still in running condition. Remember for this tool to create VirtualBox bootable VM's, the vdhx box must be unchecked, it can only use vhd files to make bootable VM's. Only certain virtual software can use the vdhx files.

So i found this article Windows 10 Installs Automatically On Windows 7 And Windows 8 - Forbes which says to use this Download Windows 10 Technical Preview - Microsoft Windows. My question is well this windows 10 update delete or change my Recovery partition to win10. if i dont like it id like to use the recovery partition to go back to win7. also does Microsoft know what software or what u do on win 10 tech preview.

im installing this on my pc i use everyday i know they say not to but its time for a reinstall of win7 and i thought id try win10

A:Windows 10 Technical Preview Update thru Win7's windows update

Don`t do it on your Windows 7 machine. Uninstall the update and hide it, if that`s what you mean.

Installing 10 to your W7 partition should have no affect on your recovery partition, but I wouldn`t chance it, no way.

Install Windows 10 on a separate drive, first unplugging the W7 drive, they do not dual boot well together.

Install 10 in a VM if you really want to look at it, it is nothing special and not worth the effort.

A:Windows 7 SP1 update failed, causing Windows Update errors

Well; one thing i can tell ya is that when it says cannot update while files in are in use basically means you need to restart your system. Try restarting and see what happens. It may tell you either when the system is in the process of restarting; that its configuring updates. Do not do a hard power down as that can cause even more issues while its updating.

My computer is running Windows 10 Enterprise and Windows Update refuses to download and install the version 1511 update. I've tried to press "Search for updates" multiple times, but it still keeps telling me that it's updated. The last update (apart from Windows Defender updates) was KB3163017 which was installed 8 days ago. The installation of Windows 10 itself was made longer than one month ago so the 31 day protection shouldn't be an issue either.

I've tried to search for a solution, but all I could find included downloading the .ISO file and install it manually, which I'd like to avoid as I then must burn it on a disc and I'd prefer if Windows Update could just take care of it as it does with the other updates.

So my questions are:

Is this normal, should Enterprise versions get these major updates via Windows Update or not?Is there anyone here that also use the Enterprise version and have received the update via Windows Update?Are there any solutions to this problem apart from updating with an .ISO?

A:Windows 10 Enterprise - Windows Update Can't Find Update 1511

I don't think Enterprise upgrades to next major builds through Windows Updates. That is so the corporation using Enterprise can maintain control of the versions of software on their computers which is extremely important for compatibility reasons among others.

Why can't you just mount a downloaded ISO file and run setup.exe from the mounted ISO file? Why do you have to burn it to DVD first?

A:Windows Vista Crashes after I install update from windows update

Hello none21,
Go in to the Bios, and make the first boot device the DVD/CD drive, insert the Vista DVD/CD and reboot, it should now boot from the Vista disk, from there you will be able to carry out a repair, or set it back to the point before you installed the update with system restore.
Hope this helps, good luck and post your results.
