Q: creators upgrade problem

I have an Acer aspire e1-571 I have tried several times to load 'creators upgrade' using the upgrade assistant app: It loads to 85% and then says there is a problem. I have tried a reset, but choosing to 'keep files' or 'remove everything' I get the same 'there is a problem'. I then downloaded the 'refresh tool' from Microsoft, that ran for 45mins,and failed. Any ideas please.

Preferred Solution: creators upgrade problem

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 can't upgrade to W10 creators because there is only 8 GB free on the main drive. I have a removable drive but Windows can't install to that. Given that there must be 16 GB free, clearly I can't upgrade.  I probably don't need any of the enhancements in creators on the little 110s, but will this machine still maintain its security with compatible future updates from Microsoft?

Windows 10 Still Offered as Free Upgrade After Fall Creators Update Launch

Back in 2015 when Microsoft officially launched Windows 10, the company offered it completely free of charge if the upgrade from genuine Windows 7 or 8.1 was performed within the first 12 months after the release.

But even though the promo came to an end in July 2016, Windows 10 was still available free of charge with a trick that Microsoft didn?t seem to be too very keen on blocking, and by the looks of things, the same trick continues to be available today.

Basically, Microsoft allows customers who use assistive technologies to upgrade to Windows 10 at no cost, and all they have to do is to ?claim? they use an accessibility feature in the operating system. There?s no verification taking place and the upgrade can be performed by pretty much anyone presuming they run a genuine copy of Windows 7 or Windows 8.1.
This doesn?t mean that Windows 10 is free of charge. No, because whoever wants to use this ?loophole? to upgrade to Windows 10 still needs a genuine license for their Windows operating system. But with product keys for Windows 7 and 8.1 still up for grabs these days if you know where to look, moving to Windows 10 is less expensive than it might seem at first glance.

No word on blocking the loophole
So does Microsoft plan to block this free upgrade method? Good question, and although an official answer isn?t available, the company says on the upgrade page that the offer will ... Read more

On My T420 I have just upgraded from Windows 1611 (Anniversary Upgrade) to 1703 (Creators Upgrade). As a result Device Manager reports a conflict in a basic system install stating no driver is installed for VEN 1180 - DEV E822. This is the Ricoh Multicard reader.Under Windows 10 1611 it had worked without problems. It works fine under Ubuntu 16.04 (has dual boot system).I have tried installing the latest driver version released 8.6.2015 stated to be for Windows 10 and although no conflict occurs during the install, following a reboot it still shown as missing under Device Manager.The T420 is not listed under Lenovo's list of tested devices for Windows 10 1703.Has anyone else had any expereince or knowledge on what can be tried?Maybe I will just try the Windows 8 driver (version 2.22.18) from the Windows 10 driver was produced from.

Just installed Win10 Creators..... PROBLEM: When I close the lid on my Lenovo U430p then open the lid, all the open windows on my desktop get resized and re-positioned to the left of the screen. It's like the resolution is changing when I close the lid, then changing back when I open it. Fo a split second while opening, I can see the screen has shrunk to the top left corner of the screen. I have the settings to do NOTHING when I close the lid. So the computer is NOT set to sleep and is NOT set to turn the monitor off when closing the lid.   Tried downgrading to official drivers from Lenovo site Tried updating manually to latest INTEL version So that's three different versions that all have the same problem.....   Any comments or solutions?

Hi! I am using a C40-05 All in one, it comes with an A330 AMD Graphic Card.  Since I updated to Windows 10 Anniversary, and also with creators update, it detects the graphic card as an M330, which causes huge problems, like a lot of time to startup windows, and an eternal lag once it starts (i'm talking about 10 minutes just to move the mouse, or even other tasks).  I have tried diagnostic utilities, and they all say it is ok (both hardware and software).  The only way to use the computer is to go to device administrator and disable the graphic card, however, once disabled the computer losses a lot of performance of course, specially in graphics. Please help me, I have tried even to reinstall Windows from 0, with the option to format and download directly windows from MS website.

Dear Dell,
Yesterday my laptop Inspiron 14- 5459 was automatically updated with Windows 10- creators update. After successful updating and restart, I was working for some time on the laptop.  Then I tried restarting the laptop. The laptop didn't restart properly. It kept on showing the black screen post dell logo display. I tried repairing the windows using the windows 10 Home edition 64 bit recovery medium and even after installing it, no boot device message is displayed. Previously before repairing the window, when epsa diagnosis was run, no hard ware issue were found.
Can you please let me know how resolve this. My service tag has technical support in warranty. Can someone call. And clarify.
Thanks in advance.

Hey, I was wondering which dvd movie software is the best. I have roxio 8.0, i'm not that impressed with it. It has a lot of features, but it takes a very long time and when i make chapters the sound doesn't match the motion. I saw that Roxio 9.0 came out and can burn blue ray which i don't plan on getting soon but it's something to think about. Are there any outstanding programs out there? thanks

That's relative to your needs and budget, IMO the best DVD authoring software is DVD without completely breaking the bank is Workshop by Ulead but it's not cheap and the video editing features are limited. For something similar to Roxio look there Movie Factory or Video Studio product.

but it takes a very long timeClick to expand...

That would be realative to the speed of your machine and a few other factors. All things being equal different software may be slightly faster or slower but it won't be a significant amount.

and when i make chapters the sound doesn't match the motion.Click to expand...

Do you mean when you hit the chapter the sound is out of sync for the video? By your statement I'll assume this only happens when you use chapters?

Anyhow Roxio and Nero both are not very good tools when it comes to video, try some of the trials from above.

Hi there,
As yet, the Creators Update did not get pushed to our 580 MT via Windows update. As the 580 MT is not certified by Dell to run Win 10, & also as we have the upgraded RAM, Graphics Card & the Hard Drive from "stock" to keep it more current, I am wondering if this machine will ever get this update automatically.
I know it is possible to update to Creators Update Manually, but of course that contains risks, so I thought I would first of all check if any 580 MT owners had received the automatic update, what their experience was, & also if anyone had done the Manual Update.
Here are the specs of our machine
CPU is an Intel Core i3 Processor 530(2,93GHz,4MB)
8 GB of RAM onboard
Nvidia GT220 Graphics Card
Seagate SSHD 1GB

Looking forward to any replies

Hi, thought this might cause some confusion so I thought we should look at it.

Open a cmd as admin (need to mod the system to get back cmd prompt from win + x, replaced by powershell) OR use a powershell prompt as admin and type:- cmd.exe, this opens an elevated cmd prompt within powershell.

With an elevated cmd prompt, copy paste the following cmd:-(highlighted in red)

tasklist /svc /fi "imagename eq svchost.exe" > 0 & notepad 0

Press enter, notepad will open with a list of all svchost processes, you will see a lot of them, (if you open task Manager, you will see windows processes have greatly increased in number). MS have no longer grouped svchost processes, they are now all single processes and have individual PID's.

The original idea to save on memory has been deprecated, MS now believe that most systems have sufficient RAM for processes to be individual, if you have less then 3.5 gb the processes will still be grouped, if ever you needed an argument to increase RAM, this certainly helps. I think this makes tasklist much easier to interpret and improves system diagnostics, so I am for it.

Wow! My wife was playing a game on her pc (The games was downloaded months ago and she wasn't online) when bang - the computer screen went black and after a short time a message came on-screen to not shut off the computer and that Microsoft Windows updates where being installed and that the computer would restart several times. This happened at 2:00 pm and finally finished updating at 4:00 pm. It turns out that Microsoft went ahead and installed the Creators update without even asking - bang and away it started.

No option to opt-out of doing it, they just did it. She will never use any of that stuff.

She hasn't spent much time on it since the upgrade so we don't know if the printer still works, or if her games are still working or if everything is still working.

I sure wish they would give people the option to opt-in or out instead of just doing it. Doesn't seem right to me!

Your thoughts please...

Creators Update includes many changes and tweaks varying from important to cosmetic. I have selected 7 of these changes that I think that everyone should be aware of. Other Members will hopefully add theirs to this list....

1. New Privacy Controls

These have been significantly revised and you will need to check and reset your privacy controls after applying the Creators Update. The controls are now more granular and provide a more user-friendly way to protect your privacy.

2. Settings Improved

The Settings app has had a rework which results in an improved layout and easier to navigate and find what you are looking for. After the update check all your personal Settings as some of these may have reverted to "default", which might not be what you want.

3. Improved Windows Defender

WD is starting to become a mature app with a much more modern "Look & Feel" and now boasting a Security Center. But be careful...... the option to reset your computer to Factory Settings has been moved into WD - you would not want to do that by mistake... WD gets bad press in most magazines - you can believe those reviews if you want to but my personal experience is that WD provides more than adequate protection for anyone who uses just a little "common sense" when online.

4. Start Menu Reorganized

I use the word "reorganized" because whether this is an "improvement" will depend on personal preference - but you will have to take a good look... Read more

Hi,There are a couple of options.First lets perform a disk cleanup and try to create space on drive. Right-click on the drive c: in any folder and click on properties.  Now click on disk cleanup and wait while the space gets calculated, In the next window click on clean up system files and wait for further calculation. Now in the window that appears mark all the unnecessary file (such as old updates, temporary files etc...) and press OK and delete the files. See if there is enough space for installation.Insert a Usb pendrive with at least 10 GB of free space and start computer. During installation of the update if there is not enough space it should give you the option to use the drive for installation purpose. After the installation is complete you can remove drive.Take a look at this link: https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_10-update/not-enough-disk-space-for-annive...Hope it helps,David

Hi all Since I installed Windows 10 Creators Update (someday in April) I am having an issue with the mouse cursor being very small in all citrix applications and on some parts of the screen in Word. This totally drives me nuts since i support most of my customers in citrix applications. After browsing the forums with no results whatsoever I decided to roll back to the previous version of windows and give the Creators Update another go in a year or so. Since I couldn't roll back to the previous Version of Windows in the Windows Update app (the option just doesn't show up),  I did a full restore by means of the function provided in the Lenovo BIOS. That did work fine but it just reinstalled with the current Version of Windwos (1703 wich is still Creators Update). So no joy there. How can I restore to the Windows-Version that the Notebook was shipped with? I can see a unmounted partition of 1 GB in size. That sounds promising although a bit small... Any ideas? Thank you Markus
