Preferred Solution: Insider update.

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.)

A: Insider update.

Usually takes 24-48 hours after switching ring. There is truly no rhyme or reason to the exact time MS clears you for the download. You will get 14393.0 first and then a Cumulative Update to 14393.5 if and only if you are set to the Fast ring. So be sure to check which ring you have after you get 14393.0. For me it was initially set to Release Preview.

The only update I've seen mentioned is to Build 14926 and may not yet be available to everyone in the Insider program, just as 14915 took awhile to get to those running 14905. Just requires a bit of patience.

I keep getting pop ups saying my copy of windows is about to expire. "12/31/2016 4:29:44 PM"
I have: Windows 10 Pro Insider Preview Evaluation copy. Build 14295.rs1_release 160318-1628
Every time I try and use Windows Update, I keep having the following errors...

No mater what I do I can not get the updates to install, in fact windows wont even let me go back to an earlier build.
Really don't want to lose all my settings, apps games, I've backed up what I can but really dreading all the customization and settings I had to tweak.

Anyway to stop the expiration? fix the updates so it works or download and install offline so i can keep all my settings and stuff?

Also tried WindowsUpdateDiagnostic and wushowhide. both didn't do anything for me. tried clearing the "C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution" and that didn't work.

I just want to get regular official builds instead of insider builds,Since too many builds and updates is using too much data which my data plan is incapable of.What should I do to get back to regular official builds after rs_1 without a risk of losing my documents,music and video .Is it okay to just stop insider builds after getting rs_1 without any further problems ?Please help me.

Hi everyone,
Before heading off for the holidays I wanted to give a little bit of an update on how things are shaping up for Windows 10, especially since we don?t have a build for you this month. I know that some of you are disappointed that we didn?t release another build (though we know some of them escaped?.I?m looking at you 9888 & 9901?)* but now that we?ve announced our event on January 21st I can finally explain why we didn?t. We?ve been very hard at work putting together a great build for you that includes a bunch of new features and improvements. As all of those payloads came in we needed to stabilize code, fix any integration issues, and ensure all of the new UX is polished. We?re really focused on making the next build something that we hope you?ll think is awesome. In fact, just so that we have a *daily* reminder to ourselves that we want this build to be great, we even named our build branch FBL_AWESOME. Yeah, it?s a bit corny, but trust me that every Dev that checks in their code and sees that branch name gets an immediate reminder of our goal. We?re super excited to show you what we?ve been up to! Look for a follow-up blog post from us on where to tune-in to the live webcast on January 21st.

I have been successfully updating as a Insider Win 10 since Oct 2014 with no problems. I recently did a clean install of build 11102 and it seems ok. A few slow downs and hangs but generally ok.
Recently I received notification from MS that build 14257 was available for download. I downloaded the file as always and it went through the usual prep and getting ready etc. When it rebooted to start the install I get a screen asking me to "Choose your Keyboard L/O" I choose United States and then it reverts back to "Choose an Option" I choose "continue & Exit to Win 10" and it boots back into my build 11102. I've tried this three or four times with the same result.
I have downloaded and run the MS Fit-It for upgrades to no avail. I have tried using a Local account, still does the same thing. I created an ISO TechNet and it does the same thing when trying to do a clean install.
Any ideas??
I have run DISM and SFC /scannow

Here is the error message I get when I try to open my network drives :


I deleted the credentials stored in Windows.
In addition, following the recommendation of Microsoft support (KB912998) I checked the next local strategy was well off: "Network access: Do not allow storage of credentials or .NET Passports for network authentication"
I tried a system repair using the command "sfc / scannow" and "chkdsk / r" without any changes.
Do you have an idea to solve this problem? Is this a bug referenced in this release?

Today I tried to update my Windows 10 insider preview (fast) system to the latest build. During the first attempt I received a BSOD and rollback. After multiple reboots and cleanups (such as removing kaspersky) I was able to do the update again.
The update completed, since I once had the "hi" screens after login, however after a reboot I am not constantly getting the spinning white circle. (left for an hour), no desktop. This is the 2nd stage with blue background, not the initial loading windows flag. I've since rebooted a few times, but ... nothing ...
I booted a windows 10 USB to attempt to run recovery options but received a message that an update was in progress ("it looks like you started an upgrade and booted from installation media"). I was unable to revert to a previous build, and startup repair didn't help. I can get to the command line but other than copy files there's little else I can do (system is *of course* all backed up anyway to crashplan, and non system drive data looks intact in any case)
Any tips - other than a clean install? perhaps not such a bad thing after over a year of insider builds....

Hello Pkshadow Welcome to the Ten Forums!

The prompting you are seeing is most likely to get you to notice and install updates that have been accumulating. Otherwise that is a strange one. You might have to sign into an MS account if you already had one setup in order to see that account's information updated on the change from Insider to Anniversary. That would then see everything synced properly.

I downloaded the Win 10 insider program in July 2015 on a PC that had been running Vista. If I was to request to stop recieving Insider builds would Microsoft disable my Win 10 as it was installed as a insider build not an upgrade?
 

A:Win 10 insider

I am not 100% certain, but I do not think the insider builds are registered with Microsoft, as genuine activated products. It will eventually expire. What that means, I am also u8nsure of, but I suspect you could go on using it, without backup or updates.
The only way out, for you, is to purchase Windows 10, or continue to update with the insider builds. The program is set to go on for a long time yet.

Hi

Ive been on the slow ring for insider builds since build 99xx (cant remember). I got to the RTM build of 10240. I haven't opted out of the insider program and I get the STOP INSIDER BUILDS and SLOW/FAST ring options on the update page, I also have a registered copy of windows 10 pro. If I do the winver command from search I am shown that I have windows 10 (build 10240) and there is no expiration date. My question is this, am I still on the insider builds or not, since 10240 Ive been on the slow ring and I still am, I haven't gotten a new build number except that every now and then I have updates to download. I also notice in the UPDATE HISTORY that every so often it will tell me that no updates have been installed since the last build (cant remember the exact words) So am I still an insider? Why am I not getting slow ring builds?

It seems 10240 does not expire (to me it seems like Ive opted out of the insider program and am stuck on 10240 but the fact that STOP INSIDER BUILDS and FAST/SLOW rings appear in settings tell me that I still an insider.

Good morning everyone!
 
I just joined and I'm really enjoying the discussions that happen here. I did a search through the forum and I noticed that there weren't any discussions on insider threat. Is that just not technical enough for you guys to talk about? Of course I'm a bit biased about that topic, but I'll try to keep that out of the conversation. The last thing I want to be is one of those people who only joins a community to promote themselves or something they do.
 
Here's my question: What do you think about insider threat and how do you go about addressing it?
 
We've seen this being discussed almost every time there is a high profile breach, but I don't see it spoken or written about that often outside of those headlines.

There's ISO for newest one (10565) here: Download Windows 10 Build 10565 ISO - Microsoft News but as those are insider builds and if you have standard 10240 you can put it in slow ring and defer updates until you want to.

Opting out of Insider programme
If someone pulls out of the insider programme what happens next, do you stay on the last Preview or do you go back to the latest stable build you installed or the latest stable build thats out at the moment and can you lose anything in the process.

I've been doing this for years and have never pulled out of these beta and insider programmes.

I'm basing this on the fact that the machines were setup and activated before entering the Insider programme.

Also if you used a hdd with a preview build from the start, but the computer is activated with a genuine build, what would happen to the hdd with the preview alone on it.

First of all, let me say that I have no inside info on this topic.

Now that Microsoft seems to be on a fast release cycle for Insider builds, I would expect that we should see a new build soon. Maybe this week?!

I base this hope on the fact that build 11102 was released on 1/22/16. Four days later build 14251 was released on 1/27/16, The most recent build, 14257, was released on 2/3/16. Based on this timetable, it's possible that another build may be released to the fast ring this week.

A:When will the next Insider Build be released?

Hello there sassafras Welcome to the Ten Forums!

On that question you seem to have already answered the question on another thread Post #30 I believe. Microsoft lays more foundations for Redstone Windows 10 Build 14257 - Page 4 - Windows 10 Forums

Those actively involved in the Windows Insider Preview program will now be seeing an app available for a fast preview option for an advanced first look at the next build that would follow the present one available. Other then that the Blog.Windows 10 page would be what to watch to catch the next build's announcement which also ends up being quoted in the news section here at Ten Forums by the way!
