Q: That unwanted win10 upgrade in updates - KB3150513

For computers that can't upgrade to win10 from win7 or 8.1 or you just don't want win10,
Heres a little program that will stop it from downloading and you can turn it back on if you want it.

Preferred Solution: That unwanted win10 upgrade in updates - KB3150513

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/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: That unwanted win10 upgrade in updates - KB3150513

This PC can't run Win 10 (or even Win 8) but Never10 hasn't stopped MS from pushing updates that want to install Win 10 on this system.
They'll supposedly stop bugging us in July when the free upgrade to Win 10 goes away...

Hi.
I just did a fresh install of Win7 Ultimate SP1 on my PC, since the previous install was all crooked and had problems with viruses.
Now, I would like to keep Win7 just as a temporary tool, since all I want to get is the Win10 Upgrade tool and get the new release.
Since I don't want to install all 230+ Updates before getting the Upgrader (GWX), I'd like to ask which updates I mandatorily have to install in order to get the Upgrader. Microsoft's page regarding the update (KB3035583) does not tell me that I need some updates beforehand.

Any Ideas?

I bought a cheap Acer Aspire computer from Wally World that has Windows on it I had to have something for internet access while I was rebuilding an XP box I figured that I'd do the free Windows upgrade on the Acer upgrade win8.1 win10 fail updates, completing insists which on once I had everything working on the XP box I have tried different ways of doing the Win upgrade and all spend HOURS downloading Win and then insist on checking for Win updates and installing them before upgrading to Win again win10 upgrade insists on completing win8.1 updates, which fail taking HOURS in the process In all cases many hours are spent downloading all the updates and then the updates start installing The progress bar gets to then a restart occurs Then I'm told that the updates are being worked on and the progress bar gets to every time Then I'm told that the updates have failed and many hours are spent putting everything back the way it was I ran sfc scannow which failed to repair dozen files My only saving grace is that I bought a spare G hard drive and used MacriumReflect to clone the original drive from Wally World over on to it so that at any time I can repeat that process to get my original drive back onto the cloned over drive Obviously I don't actually touch anything on the original drive except having put Avast AV on it win10 upgrade insists on completing win8.1 updates, which fail plus Firefox and MacriumReflect and using the McAfee uninstaller which I did before the first cloning I need to do an upgrade because the UEFI contents on this drive are uniquely matched to the mother board I don't think that a scratch win10 upgrade insists on completing win8.1 updates, which fail install of WIN will have all the drivers proprietary files etc that this motherboard is going to look for By the way while I'm trying to do all this the only things connected to the computer are a cable connection to the router a monitor a USB mouse and a USB keyboard I also turn off file and network protection in Avast indefinately since it's taking so many hours for all the shenanigans that Windows insists on doing Does anyone have any suggestions on how to install the Win updates I could take the time to install them one at a time but I can't find an inclusive list that tells what order to do them in A lot of them are security updates for Windows and the various NET frameworks from to Thanks

A:win10 upgrade insists on completing win8.1 updates, which fail

Personally, because you have a backup drive, I would clean install Windows 10 to the new drive. You can download the Windows 10 Media Creation Tool . You can pull the key with produkey and use it during the Windows 10 install.
 
You most likely will not need many drivers after the install. If you do then check your Aspire's website for Windows 10 specific drivers. 
 
What is the model number of the Aspire?

Hey. I don't want win10 and therefore use never10 to not upgrade. However, I still assumed I could/should continue updating win8.1 and therefore looked over the available updates - none of them seemed to be about win10 so I downloaded them, and then it said "windows 10 upgrade ready, restart". I thought It wouldn't happen as long as i had never10, so i restarted, and it said installing updates blabla, but then i changed my mind and just turned the computer off.
 
WHen i restarted it, it showed that the updates were no longer available, and therefore i assume they're installed. I do not currently have windows 10, but perhaps some of its components are still installed??
 
What do i do? I don't even want a sliver of win10
 
I have win8.1

Hello,

I received the free win 10 upgrade from an invitation to reserve the upgrade. The other day, a Ransomware hit me, and though I believe I may have immediately tracked & deleted all affected files I could find, I hardly believe I could be so skilled as to be successful.

I had this happen last year, and ended up formatting the unit, and reloading Win 7. I don't want to have to go back to 7, but how do I get another Win 10? Is there a key I need to find & save? A free site that I can get a copy on a flash drive to load from? Any help would be appreciated. I have no clue how to proceed since it's an online download, and once formatted, the unit won't be able to get online without the OS

Thanks

I just got notified of Windows maintenance waiting to be downloaded: KB3150513. All the hits I found on the web were from May and were about Win10 upgrade stuff for earlier releases of Windows. Is KB3150513 being reissued for some other purpose - like automatic installation of the AU or something?

A:A new KB3150513?

Hi:

Yep, you beat me to the punch. I'm on 1511 with Upgrades deferred and WU set to notify.
I was just notified about this patch and found the same info on the net, as well.

I share your suspicion about its purpose on a box already running Win10.
I have a feeling it's going to be a way to force the AU, or at least nag about it.

I'm holding off for now and will likely have to fire up the new process for hiding updates for this one.

Sigh.
MS sure has turned most of us into cynics over the past few years.
"Fear the patch"!

This was used to prepare for upgrade to win 10 ,so why are some win 10 users now being prompted to download it.

It updates C:/Windows/System32/appraiser - this contains files related to hardware/software compatibility and enables
it to evaluate your system and determine its compatibility for future ugrades to windows 10.

So they want to update that information.Probably why someone like me who is currently running 1511 and blocking 1607
has been prompted to download it.

I wonder if in the future they are going to use this to force people to install 1607?

I came across this blog site where it explained how to be FREE from the Win10 downloads/upgrades when you don't want them.

I downloaded the small app, scanned the file for virus and malware prior to installing (all was OK).

The app, known as GWX Control Panel scans your PC and shows you what to change if needed.

It is very simple to use and allows you to reverse anything you change.

So I just got Windows 10 and did a clean install (no upgrade). Now I am going through some of the settings I want turned on and off, but the whole Windows auto update thing is a bit confusing.

On Windows 7 I have "Check for updates but let me choose.......", but I don't see that in Windows 10. From what I read, I think I should do this

a) Just turn off updates
b) get that program GWM or something like that (Update: Sorry I meant Windows Update MiniTool)

Is this the proper way or is there another way to do this. I even read of a registry hack, but not sure. I definitely just want to control what updates are offered to my system and then I get to pick and choose which ones to install.

Thanks

A:How to get away from Auto Updates from Win10

You cannot avoid them in Windows 10 which is an issue that has caused some frustration amongst users. You also need to be wary of Windows Update pushing driver updates through automatically. Whilst it is a good feature I think driver updates should be optional. I don't want to switch the whole feature off (which can be done for driver updates) but at the same time I don't want them auto installing for all device types (GPU drivers for example).

A:Size of Win10 Updates

There was a major update to 10586 around 3GB and several updates say around 0.5GB each. When you update most updates are cumulative it only downloads the most recent update as that supersedes all previous updates.

Your bigger issue is general telemetry burning your allowance. If using wifi, set pc to metered connection, and turn off auto updates from various programs.

My Windows 10 version 1511 is set to download and install updates automatically but this morning, the updates download got stuck at 0% for a long time. Even after a reboot, it would not budge.
Do you guys have the same problem here?

Maybe during the downloading of the updates, I had turned off my notebook, so would that have a negative effect on the way the updates are downloaded or in process of downloading?
So for example, next time if there is a Windows Update and the downloads are in progress, is it OK to turn off my machine while Windows 10 is downloading the patches or security updates?

The only way I could recover from this mess, is that I read these steps from the below link.
?www.thewindowsclub.com/w ??? -updates

But overall in general, the way Win10 handles these updates is a PURE MESS, and I hope in Redstone, this will be fixed.
I never had these issues in Win7...

A:Win10 Updates stuck downloading

I had a hard time updating my 10586 (1511) Version so I let it update and download over night. DON'T !! it also downloaded the "Feature update", meaning the anniversary update and tried to install that. I interrupted the update so Windows will be forced to go back to the 1511 Version.
Whenever a new cumulative update is available, I made it a habit to download it from the catalog:
Microsoft Update Catalog

that way I do not rely on the Windows update and can do that even disconnected from the web.. Has always worked for me...

I have a G27 with Profiler 5.10 and LGS 8.83.85 ( for my KB and Mouse ) installed.

Theres a Logitech Download Updater, that's the name of this update, coming through Windows update ( Win 10 here ) and is messing with Logitech Profiler.

Picture in Profiler changes to a Driving Force wheel ( My OS still see my wheel as a G27 tough ) and Profiler looses the ability to change Wheel rotation, enable/disable centering spring and use special steering wheel settings option. Wheel has a 180 degrees only and can't be changed anywhere.

Anyone got this update through Windows? There's any way to stop receiving this update through Windows?

If this is a program on my computer, I can't find any way to remove it. The popup occurs no matter what website I'm trying to open. I searched for ways to remove it, but they all seem to be scams that will cost money. While I don't mind spending a few nickels, I've tried similar options in the past with bad results.

Any one know how I can remove this program?

Has anyone upgraded to Windows 10 on the hp 110-414 have you got any problems or bugs with it and is it running well on it and do you think I should upgrade










Solved!

A:Hp 110-414 Win10 Upgrade

Because you may find that you need to install the Windows 10 driver for it after upgrading. With most notebooks there are two or three different adapters that could be installed. It helps to what is installed in yours.  Use the search functiion in the forum and search for windows 10 wifi driver. You will notice that many members did not take the time to either locate the driver or know what is installed.

I have an older laptop (probably 6-7 years old, Dell Inspiron running Windows 7) and its been running fairly slow lately. I saw a notice that today is the last day to upgrade to Win10 for free. Just looking for some good advice on whether or not I should even consider upgrading.

My first thought is that, with an older machine, I probably have a lot of junk on my hard drive causing the slowness so I need to clean it up (which means I'll miss the "today is the last day" bit...but do I really care?). I also think maybe my processor won't be able to handle the new version, but not sure if that's really a concern or not.

Can I ask for some advice? Thanks

make sure there are windows 10 drivers available for the PC

you could always make a recovery set of DVDs (if you havent already , and i would advise you make them anyway) and do a windows 7 clean install

you may have a lot of startups or even malware on the PC slowing it down

My wife's computer could not upgrade to win 10 cause it had an old video card. I upgrade motherboard and video card. Win 7 is registered, but can not upgrade. The free upgrade tool still shows the other video card. Tried the media creation tool and still goes back to the upgrade box with the old card. Is there anyway to erase that upgrade box and redue it?

A:Help with win10 upgrade

Check for any left over files or drivers from your old video card. Windows is still finding it somewhere. Check your device manager 1st just to see if its listing 2 video cards, then check your program folders for any left overs. Also just for backup reasons, download a program on this forum called Showkey which will give you the information on your currant Windows Key, incase you need it to upgrade to Windows 10.

Remark:   Based on the change in wording in the above document... as well as "confirmed" on my Win8.1 tablet... there has NOT (yet?) been a corresponding update for Win8.x

A:Updates 1/5/16 - Flash for IE11/ActiveX & Edge on Win10

So to summarize the Flash confusion at present:
the current Flash plug-in version (non-IE browsers) is 20.0.0.267
The current IE/ActiveX version for Win 7 and earlier is 20.0.0.270
The temporary [?] version for IE10/11 on Windows 8.x is also 20.0.0.267 ; an update was expected, but has not been released as of this writing (6 January 2016, 12:40pm EST).
The current IE11/ActiveX and Edge version for Win 10 is [allegedly] 20.0.0.272

I just 'Reset' my tablet/laptop which has Win10 on it. It's an Asus T100-chi with 64gb main drive and 2gb of RAM. It's been at it for half an hour now and only proceeds to about 55%

I opted to just reset and just remove my files. No HDD wiping. Surely this shouldn't take this long?

So I was thinking. Win10 is insanely aggressive with updates (which I don't like). Is Win10 now secretly downloading updates so my 'Reset PC' will have the latest updates "fresh out the box". Could this be a possibility?

FYI, I've had at least 7 customers come in this week due to Windows 10 hanging in the middle of an update (most of them it was the anniversary update) due to the logitech unifying receiver. It gets to about 45% or so, reboots, then gets stuck on a black screen with the swirling dots in a circle. The first guy that brought it to me was stuck on that screen for two days. Unplug the receiver and it continues and finishes installing the update as normal. They have all been major brand laptops so far. Interestingly I have a receiver on two of my 3 machines(custom built desktops) and didn't get the same issue on them, so YMMV.

Is it possible to get rid of these after checking them over and finding I don't want them, or will they continually give me the pop up in my lower right hand corner and just keep increasing in the number of optional updates in my Windows Update screen?

A:My pc wants to download unwanted updates.

go to http://www.update.microsoft.com/windowsupdate/v6/default.aspx?ln=en-us

it will most likely ask to do a genuine check - proceed with it until you are at the update main screen

instead of going to Express install, choose CUSTOMIZE.

here you will see a list of the update. They are relatively small, and you're best off grabbing them.

stay away from hardware updates, as you most likely do not need them.

No need to install windows 8 - just install windows 8.1 via ISO and then upgrade to windows 10 via ISO
windows 10 just needs to see the activation of windows 7 or windows 8.1 to activate itself..

Hi all, i have a Precision M4700 with windows 7 SP1 OEM, i'm confused, can i install windows 10 pro for free or do i have to purchase an upgrade license (if i do it now, before the 29th July) ?
Consider i work in an Enterprise environment but the license applied to my PC is the OEM, not the one under Corporate agreement.
Thanks for a clarification/confirmation.

HIRYU79,
Yes, you can upgrade to Windows 10 for free. You will also need to update the drivers to Windows 10 as well. Click the link below to download the drivers for your M4700.

Hi everyone, this is my first visit and post and I hope you can assist
where others have failed. I have tried to install Win 10
on two machines and neither of them would work, both telling me that the CPU was not
good enough or words to that effect.

PC1 has Intel Pent G3220 3.00 GHz Haswell chip.

PC2 has Intel Core 2 Duo CPU E8400 @ 3.00 GHz.

Both of these are way over the required
minimum spec so I cannot understand why Win10 will not install.

A:Unable to upgrade to Win10 or even try it out.

Welcome to the forum. Its likely either your cpu cant handle PAE, NX and SSE2 or its not set in the bios

To test for PAE, NX, and SSE2, download a program called "CPU-Z" and run it. On the main window, look under the "Instructions" heading for SSE2, EM64T (which also indicates the processor supports PAE) and either VT-d or VT-x, which is required for NX support. If you have all 3, then you are good to go.

My current computer has a retail copy of Win8. I'm building a new PC this weekend and I want to utilize the free upgrade to Win10 from my current retail version of 8, but I understand the free upgrade is tied to hardware.

Would my best option be to migrate Win8 to the new PC and upgrade from there? Alternatively, would I be better to just upgrade to 10 now and then migrate to the new PC afterwards? I imagine I can just discover the product key using something like Belarc Advisor, but then I don't know if the key will be accepted for activation on the new hardware... Thoughts?

olearyvergreen Hello;Allow me to welcome you to the HP forums!I tend to be more cautious than other folks, especially when it comes to Win10 "Updates".For you see, the Anniversary Update (AU) is a whole NEW version of Win10.  The previous was 10586; this is 14393 -- and the community Win10 forums are awash with folks whose machines, which had previously been running Win10 without problems, SUDDENLY developed problems either trying to install this Update, or after installing this Update.My desktop has been running Win10 without problems since the earliest days of the Insider Preview over a year ago and it's sailed through Update after Update without problems.  So, you can imagine my surprise when the AU trashed my PC -- to the degree that I restored it from an image backup.At this point, you really only have two options:1) clean-install using new Win10 Media2) clean-install of Win7 using HP Recovery Media Either way, you lose all your data, settings, and apps! As to 1), you can create NEW Win10 media from this link: Installing Windows 10 using the media creation tool - Windows Help As to 2), you can look online for Recovery Media starting with the linked paged: http://support.hp.com/us-en/driversOnce there, input your Product name or number. On your Software and Drivers Download page, select your Operating System and and Version. Click "Update".  If HP Recovery Media is available for your machine, down near the bottom of the page, you will see an entry for Order Recovery Media-CD/DVD/USB. Click the "+" symbol to expand that entry and click on Order Media for details.Or, if you prefer, you can do the same by contacting HP Customer Service:If you live in the US or Canada, contact information is on this page: http://www8.hp.com/us/en/contact-hp/phone-assist.html#section1If you live elsewhere, contact information is on this page: http://www8.hp.com/us/en/contact-hp/ww-contact-us.htmlNOTE: After you get through, stay on the line until you are finally able to talk to some one -- it can take a while!If HP no longer provides Recovery Media for your model, a couple of other sites you can check are: http://www.computersurgeons.com/  and http://www.restoredisks.com/ Good Luck

It does not make any difference, if the profiles are identical on each device does it? When I say identical, both my MS Surface and my Main rig are running Windows 10 Pro on the same profile which shouldn't make any difference because each Product ID and registration key is unique to each machine that the OS is installed on. Windows is activated on both my MS Surface and my Main rig.

I had the same problem on my MS Surface, as it took over a week before the 10.10547 finally showed up in Windows Update. Unless I wait for 10.10558 which I would estimate possibly the end of October or the beginning of November.

Hi there, Mel. No, it won't make any difference with identical accounts for the reasons you gave.

I don't see any option to hide the updates which you don't want to install.
In windows 7, one can simply right click and choose hide the update, but no such thing in windows 8.1.
am i missing something???

A:Hide unwanted updates in windows 8.1

The option to hide updates is there for me and I use it to hide MS crapware, so it works as in prior versions. It has the little administrator shield on it, so you have to be an administrator to access it. If your PC is a company machine they may have set a policy that removes the option.

The problem is, where is the download now? I've searched the 'downloads' file and I cannot seem to find it. Maybe it has been placed in a separate file of its own.

Hello!

I have a strange issue where after a full shut down in Windows 10, the motherboard is still delivering power to my connected devices such as my headset, keyboard, mouse and monitors i.e. all the lights on these devices are still on, whereas previously in Win7 they would all turn off.

I did an in-place upgrade from Win7-Win10 and adjusted no motherboard BIOS settings.

I've looked through the Win10 power options and can;t see anything relating to keeping devices on after a shut down. I assume this is so USB devices like phones and tablets can charge from USB when the PC is off? However I don;t need this feature if that's the intention.

Any ideas? Is windows 10 (vs win7) sending a different command back to the MB on a shutdown?

Hardware:
MB: Asrock P67 Extreme 6
CPU: Intel 2600k

A:Motherboard Power Still On After Win10 Upgrade

Some motherboards have a USB power feature even when the computer is switched on.
This sound like your issue. This can be adjusted in the BIOS settings.

Look in the BIOS for an option called EUP Turn it off.
Or maybe ErP Ready. Turn it on.

Edit: One more thought... when you installed the motherboard chipset drivers you may have installed a small program that allows for the charging of USB devices when the PC is off.

I've been hesitant to upgrade any of my PCs from 7 to 10, because it is not a clean install.
I want to be able to upgrade, but from a clean install, so that I have the ability to revert back to a windows 7 capture of my system if I find 10 to be unsavory.

Is there a way to register my hardware or obtain a windows 10 license key, via an upgrade without having to go through the process of having 10 installed on top of my 7 system?

A:MS says I can't upgrade my laptop as HP has not tested win10 on it.

I'll take a stab at this one..
From my experience with HP they do drop support for some of the products and you get stuck with the last OS that was installed on it.,. for example I had a nice desktop and it only would support Win7. When I tried to run Win8 on it .. well it would work fine but when I went to shut it down for the night and restart it that's when it would fail. Seems HP will not provide the updates to support new OS's. And this also applies to other OEM's.

Now having said all of that here is one option you have. Make sure you can make a system backup and backup your personal data. When that's done make sure you can restore the system and you're comfortable with the process.

At this point you could perform a clean instillation of 10 and see what happens. IF it fails to work properly just restore your PC to the previous settings with the backup you made.

... yes.. complicated but that's the best advice I can offer at the moment
And welcome to the forums

I can't seem to find a driver that is compatiblen with the on-board adapter.I have tried installing Radeon HD 8370D drivers from Windows Update, Lenovo Support, and from AMD's site. In all cases the system BSOD until I remove what was installed. I do have M78-10BR that upgrade perfectly with driver 15.200.1036.0.  I am at the point where I am downloading random x64 drivers from the Windows Update catalog hoping one will work.  Any other suggeestions?

I bought this in Nov, 2012, Win7 SP1. I would like to update to Win10, but I'm not sure the Broadcom WLAN driver will work in Win10. The adapter version is 5.60.350.6 (3/22/2010), BCMWL664.SYS. I don't want to update only to find I have no internet or network access.

A:Can I upgrade h8-1230 from Win7 to Win10?

Greetings, Win 7 upgrades to Win 10 can be problematic with no easy way back to Win 7 unless you have a good image and bootable rescue media. The safest way to upgrade is to clone your existing Win 7 install to a second HDD or SSD. Connect only the cloned HDD to your PC to do the upgrade. Carefully read this entire article by Ed Bott to learn what needs to be done, and the time invested, if you have to rebuild Windows 7.  Win 10 may have the correct WLAN driver as well as all other drivers needed to run correctly or the upgrade could choke. You still have the original Win 7 install on the first HDD and can move on with your computing life. Cheers!

Downloaded Win10 to my Win 8.1 desktop. Received following error messages upon attempted install finish:

"0xC1900101-0x20017"

"The installation failed in the SAFE_OS phase with an error during BOOT operation"

Have un-installed all security and all non-essential drivers and programs.

Guidance, please?

I experience a very frequent BSODs. I've searched the inet for the symptom, everyone blames Alcohool 120%. I've never had it.

I attach the system information file with 50 minidumps. I would be thankful if you could help me to identify the reason for these BSODS.

Thanks in advance.
Anton.

I downloaded the upgrade by means of the "Windows10UpgraderApp", it completed the initial check and the whole download. At the second restart the installation got stuck at 32%. Switching off the pc, the previous release was automatically restored in few minutes.
It's an almost powerful laptop. I have large amount of RAM and HD space available. The current version is 1511, build SO 10586.589

Hello,

My laptop was victim of a virus that destroyed some register files and even System Restore could not fix it. My only choice is to format the hdd and reset to the OS in the chip which is Win 8, but I had already upgraded to Win 10. How can I recover my Win 10 Key so I can reinstall and activate Win 10?

Thanks / Arturo

A:How to recover Win10 Key (free upgrade from 8.1) ?

There is no free key. If your computer came with Windows 8.x, the key is in the bios. If you wish to install from the iso, do the install without activation, then once you get into the GUI, then do the activation and it will go through.

Is it possible to upgrade a C875-15G to Win10? Currently it's not on the list of supported laptops on the Toshiba website, but Win10 compatibility check does not encounter any issues.
Did somebody tried to upgrade such a laptop already?

A:Is it possible to upgrade Satellite C875-15G to Win10?

I tried to upgrade in 2014 but that didnt work.

Some problems with the taskbar and cpu tied up continuously.

I had the same problems with a dell running on w7. Recently I upgraded the last one again and it runs well now.

So I am planning to upgrade the C875-15G again tot W10 again shortely.

Are there any reports from successful installation on the C875-15G?

I upgraded a few days ago on my ACER Aspire 605G from Windows 7 to Windows 10 and I lost wifi capability.  After upgrading numerous drivers, The Qualcomm Atheros Wireless LA Driver gave a message that said, "The device may not be present or could have been ejected/unplugged from the system.  Insert or reinsert now."  Is that the root of the problem. How do I fix the wifi access?  Thanks for your help.
