Windows Update

It is highly recommended that you use Microsoft Update instead of Windows Update as it updates all of your Microsoft software, including Microsoft Office.
  1. From the Start menu, select All Programs > Windows Update. The Keep your computer up to date page will be displayed.

    Once Windows Update has finished checking for available updates, the Review and Install Updates page will be displayed.

  3. If there are High Priority updates listed, it is highly recommended that you select them all and click Install Updates. You may be asked to restart the computer after the updates are installed.
  4. Repeat this process until there are no further updates available to install.

  1. Vista gets stuck at Completing upgrade (55%) for over 16 hours on my laptop… finally gave up and reverted back to XP. My Desktop errors out after staying at Gathering files (0%) for 10 minutes, saying an error has occurred and update has been canceled without any other indication of what is going on… Kind of bummed I can’t upgrade in time… Going to last ditch try to fresh install Windows 7 to get the Windows 10 upgrade then hope I can re-upgrade from XP>Vista>7>10 with my upgraded 7>10 activation at some point in the future when I can figure out what the problem is.

    1. Hi Ujn,

      Sorry to hear about your XP > Vista upgrade problems – not good! The Windows 10 free upgrade is available until 29th July, so you still have another month. If you have a valid Windows 7 (or 8) key, you can actually just do a fresh install of Windows 10, skip when it asks for a key during the install, and then enter your Windows 7 key to activate Windows 10 once it is installed.

      Kind Regards,
      Chris.
