Can I get Win10 for free after July 29th this year?

Q: Can I get Win10 for free after July 29th this year?

I already know about the trick where you update then revert, and the computer you updated on will be able to upgrade again for free after July 29th, but what if I won't have the computer I want to upgrade until after this date?

I'm getting a MacBook Air in August. I like how any programs made for Macs will work (for the most part) because each Mac has set specs, but I'm not a huge fan of the Mac OS. But then I learned about dual booting on Mac, and so I thought that if I dual booted Mac and Windows I'd get the best of both worlds. But then I learned that Windows 10 will only be free until July 29th, so is there a way I can 'reserve' the copy until then? Or will I just have to pay the $119 if I really want to do it?

Preferred Solution: Can I get Win10 for free after July 29th this year?

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.)

Someone else might think of a way but the answer is no. You can't get a free upgrade after 7/29.

Hello everyone,

Sorry if this question is stupid. But if I upgrade today will it still be free? According to some websites the price goes up on the 30th, but microsoft itself seems to state very strongly that the price goes up on the 29th.
If I update now will I have to pay for it?

Please let me know.
Thank you so much.

(P.s. I tried updating yesterday before the hard-n-fast deadline, but deleted an android partition and messed up the bootloader, preventing me from loading Windows. I fixed that this morning, but alas, it is the 29th now. So I am wondering if I can still get the free upgrade?)

A:July 29th -> If I upgrade now, will it still be free?

Microsoft has said that they are ending the free upgrade to Windows 10 starting on July 29th. Do you think that they will go through with that or keep it a free upgrade? If they make it paid, I wonder what will happen with the nagging icon and rogue installs. I don't mind Windows 10 at all for my home computer, but I'm still waiting on the day I come into work and see that Microsoft somehow got past our domain group policies.
 

A:July 29th cut off date for free Windows 10 upgrade. Do you think Microsoft will follow through?

Cue in Jul 28th announcement that generous MS has decided to extend the free upgrade period for another 6 months.

... and then for another 6 months.

... and then for 3 extra months.

... and then scrw it, it is free for all.

A:Upgrading to windows 10 before July 29th

You won't get a key after installing Win10. To be able to do a future install (fresh or update) you have to had it installed once on your computer. MS will record an MB ID (probably the network MAC address) and will activate future installations on the MB you have used to do the fist install.
To do so you have two options: Install Win 10 on a HDD or on drive C:
On drive C: you have two options: Fresh install or update.
On a HDD you're going to do a fresh install.
Disconnect your drive D: or any other drive you have from the MB.
- To do a update on your installed Win 7 on drive C:, boot on drive C:, create a USB with MediaCreationToolx64 then run setup on it. Leave the key blank. It will activate because you've updated a Win 7 installation.
- To do a fresh install, on drive C: or on a HDD, create a USB with MediaCreationToolx64 and boot from it. When asked for the Key, put the Win7 U key you have. When finished, it will activate as well.

My suggestion is to do a fresh install on a spare HDD or a SSD. That's what I did. Also install Classic Shell (Classic Shell - Start menu and other Windows enhancements), so it looks like Win7.
I didn't like Win10. Didn't add nothing useful, and if you disable all the tracking and spy, many features, like Cortana, won't work. Some win7 features won't be there, as games and Classic them.

Hello

I have used the tray app to register for Win 10 upgrade on a number of PCs / laptops (Win 7 & Win 8).

However I am now a bit concerned that come "D-Day", the app will automatically download the installation files (or at least a significant amount of them) on 29th July - but I would like to take complete control over the upgrades as some of my computers require some preparation & research prior to upgrade.

Can someone clarify for me ?

Thanks

hey guys,

my evaluation copy expires july 16th 2019 0:59

what does this mean?

Are we going to pay per year as MS wants us to do right now with Office 2016, Office 365?

Jimbo, i know you bought Office 2016...my guess to avoid paying every year.

But what if MS offers another Office, say 2019 and does not update Office 2016 anymore?

Because right now Office 2013 is a pain where you do not want it.

Search does not work as should.

Functions do not work as should either.

A:evaluation copy expires july 16th 2016..will we have to pay per year..

I assume you are talking about Windows 10 Insider Preview 11082.
Microsoft will continue to release new versions of Insider Preview. It won't let the current version expire without a new release. That's one area you don't have to worry about.
Besides, 2019 is 3 years from now. By that time, who knows what has become of Windows 10 ?

The Win7 sounds might not carry over, but when I create a theme, with custom sounds, and .wav files and post it here: Solved Windows 10 Themes created by Ten Forums members - Windows 10 Forums
They do carry over.

Note: except for the very first few(which were created on Windows 8.1) all themes were created using Windows 10.

You could try getting ahold of the Win7 sounds files and folders, and pasting them in C:\Windows\Media. That's how I add custom .wav files, then just use Control Panel\Sounds and create my sound theme, mixing & matching.

My desktop is an older eMachine 1360G with Acer motherboard with 8 GB ram. I had upgraded it from 7 to 10 in July with the 500GB hard drive that was in the machine at that time. I had downloaded Win10 to a thumb drive and used it to do the upgrade. Then the drive died and it sat at a tech's worktable for a couple of weeks. When I got it back it had a new 1TB drive in it, but with the Win7 that originally came with the machine. I still have the thumb drive with the Win10 install on it.
So my question is - Can I use that thumb drive to do the free upgrade or am I frozen out of free Win10?

Hello TenForums,

During the install of Win10 on July 29 there was a power outage. The first retry was successful using the Media Creation Tool on the 30th then another outage that interrupted the download the same evening. I tried to resume using the Media Creation Tool on the 31st...its not working. The msg regarding the MCT is "there was a problem starting Setup..."

Please provide me with assistance to finish this process. The time period gap in attempting to resume is because I am updating my small office computer that is away from my home.

Great catch! richc46

Now with that along with the Acronis True Image(for WD drives free version) along with the full retail version of the same I can make some comparisons. The initial backup using the custom option of selecting the host drive and where to store the image was started following the installation and system restart required.

Note it will immediately ask for a super large external drive when first starting it up to back up all internal drives installed in one super large backup. Simply close that out for selecting one or more drives depending on how many you have by leaving them checked off and unchecking any not to be included.

As far as I know, the free upgrade to 10 is going away in a few hours.

I speculate that there will be at least a few posts asking how to get the free upgrade after the offer's expiration.

(That may include some who do an upgrade through means other than Windows Update, and find that MS won't activate their copies.)

So who will be first to step up to the plate?

(I almost count the poster who hasn't upgraded yet, and who will be out of town through the end of the free period. Not quite the same as someone who is feverishly trying to do the upgrade at the last nanosecond, though.)

You can read about and download it from:

http://www.upshotphoto.com/

It was originally offered as a free download until June 30th, but it's been extended until July 4th.

This version is a final version and is 1.0.6. If you have a previous beta version, it'll need to be uninstalled and its leftover BELLAMAX folder deleted from within the C:\PROGRAM FILES folder first.

The download file size is 83.5 MB.

A:How shall users upgrade to free Windows 10 after July 29, 2016?

If you upgraded and activated Win10 before the free offer expires on 29 July 2016, you can re-install any time. You'll need Win10 install media, which you can download from MS.
See: Windows 10 ISO Download

If you did NOT upgrade and activate before the deadline, you will have to buy a Full Packaged Product (FPP), also known as Retail.

I am planning on trying Windows 10 again. I have a HP Pavilion HPE 270f i7 2.8 Ghz 12 GB Ram. I have tried the 10 upgrade several times first time I upgraded it installed and was slow. I tried using the go back to Windows 7 and that failed. So I had to reinstall Windows 7 clean. Next time I backed up everything to my external drive using acronis true image and tried again. I still had slow issue so I restored 7 with true image. I really want to give Windows 10 another chance. Question is I downloaded the free upgrade when it was free. Question is that version is before the Anniversary update. Do I have to install with the old version before the Anniversary update? Or is there a free version with the Anniversary already in the ISO? Meaning I want to upgrade using the newest version so I will not have to wait another hour or two to install the Anniversary update.

It's an 'about time' move - however, I'd happily pay for a version that was easier to manage. Windows 8.1 servicing is like trying to clear a minefield with a stick.
XP and 7 just ... work. Easy to manage, easy to trouble shoot. What was so difficult about this 8.x release? If 10 is just a re-dressed version of 8.1 I won't bother.
Waiting for the Tech specs to appear.

A:Free for a year? That's not the point.

What's wrong with Windows 8.1? I've been using Windows 8.1 since last summer, and upgraded directly from Windows 7. Reinstalled all my programs, did my own tweak, not even using a Start Menu Shell and I never had a single issue with it at all. If I'm looking for something under Windows 8.1, I can usually find it pretty quickly.

Just recieved this on my newsfeedWindows 10 upgrade to be 'free' for one year - BBC newsIn my opinion this is fantastic news, as most of my devices are running windows 7/8.1 which should be eligable for a free upgrade.I have been toying around with windows 10 in a virtual machine and have found it's performance very good for a technical preview, have to wait and see what the finished product will be like.message edited by thomasad

A:Windows 10 upgrade to be 'free' for one year

Thanks for the heads up. Unfortunately the BBC news left out the fine print shown on Windows 10 page on Microsoft's site here. Quoted: ?It is our intent that most of these devices will qualify, but some hardware/software requirements apply and feature availability may vary by device. Devices must be connected to the internet and have Windows Update enabled. ISP fees may apply. Windows 7 SP1 and Windows 8.1 Update required. Some editions are excluded: Windows 7 Enterprise, Windows 8/8.1 Enterprise, and Windows RT/RT 8.1. Active Software Assurance customers in volume licensing have the benefit to upgrade to Windows 10 Enterprise outside of this offer. We will be sharing more information and additional offer terms in coming months.?Also quoted is the need to sign up for email for the upgrade offer using your Microsoft account.i_Xp/Vista/W7Usermessage edited by XpUser

Visit V3 Software Store to avail this offer.

This is a ONE day promo, which will be available at V3 Software stores, between midday CET (central European time) Tuesday 31st of August and midday CET 1st of September 2010.

A:AVG AntiVirus 9, Free 1 year License

I must be too early since it shows AVG 9 onsale for the reduced price without any mention of the promotion as of yet. The AVG page there is seen at V3 Software Store - AVG Anti-Virus 9.0 [3 PC, 1 Year] - 62% off RRP

Don't confuse that with the other AVG link for the Internet Security 9 found above the av program on the main page.

UPDATE:

Upon going to see if the giveaway was up the buy option wants you to fill up everything plus an additional S&H charge likely for the cd itself. The alarm bells rang however when clicking on the "try now" option as seen in the image here where the VIPRE Premium firewall kicked in. Something is wrong somewhere! since the firewall has been 100% accurate every time it has blocked any site!

Hi & to TECH SUPPORT FORUM!
My name is J?rgen and I will be assisting you with your Malware related problems.

Before we move on, please read the following points carefully.
My native language isn't English. So please do not use slang or idioms. It could be hard for me to read. Thanks for your understanding.
Please read my instructions completely. If there is anything that you do not understand kindly ask before proceeding.
Perform everything in the correct order. Sometimes one step requires the previous one.
If you have any problems while you are follow my instructions, Stop there and tell me the exact nature of your problem.
Do not run any other scans without instruction or Add/ Remove Software unless I tell you to do so. This would change the output of our tools and could be confusing for me.
Post all Logfiles as a reply rather than as an attachment unless I specifically ask you. If you can not post all logfiles in one reply, feel free to use more posts.
If I don't hear from you within 3 days from this initial or any subsequent post, then this thread will be closed.
Stay with me. I will give you some advice about prevention after the cleanup process. Absence of symptoms does not always mean the computer is clean.

Step 1

Please run a FRST scan. This will help us diagnose your problem.

Please download Farbar Recovery Scan Tool and save it to your Desktop.
(If you are not sure which version (32-/64-bit) applies to your system, download and try to start both of them as just the right one will run.)
Start FRST with administator privileges.
Make sure the option Addition.txt is checked and press the Scan button.
When finished, FRST will produce two logs (FRST.txt and Addition.txt) in the same directory the tool was run from.
Please copy and paste these logs in your next reply.

"a-squared Anti-Malware 4.5 got the Epsilon Award 2009!

During the annual European Software Conference, the Epsilon Award is given to the best software of the year."

more info: Emsisoft Anti-Malware - Best protection against Viruses, Trojan Horses, Spyware, Worms, Dialers, Adware, Keyloggers and Rootkits

a2 also has better detection-rate then MBAM:
Which is the Best? A-squared Free Vs Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
Which is the Best? MBAM vs A-squared Part 2

i?ve used only a2 for realtime-protection on my computer for about 2 months now,
although i regularly do a scan also with MSE, Avast & MBAM.
i recently did a BIG scan on all my disks with a2, MSE, Avast & MBAM, none of them found anything.
so i believe this means that i have a clean computer, and that a2 is doing a good job....
a2 is working very well on Windows 7, it uses little memory except when doing a scan, and it doesnt?slow down the computer.

a2 also works well TOGETHER with other Antivirus-programs, i have tested a2 together with Avira, Avast & MSE.
i have even tried a2, Avast & MSE together, ALL 3 with their realtime-protection on, and i have not noticed any problems.

i switched to Online Armor a month ago, after discovering serious securityproblems with Comodo.
Security-problem with Comodo?s firewall & Defence+ !

as i already had a-squared i?m actually running OA++ now, which is OA-premium & a-squared combined as a suite.
so this means that i have a very good combination now.

i REALLY recommend EAM, do NOT miss this offer !

Everyone can get a 1 year license of Returnil Virtual System 2010 Home Lux for free! Before I delve into how to get the 1 year license, let me give a quick overview of what RVS 2010 is for those that don't know.

Returnil Virtual System 2010 is a unique security software that protects your computer in an unorthodox manner. RVS 2010 uses a powerful combination of anti-virus, anti-malware, and a virtual system to protect your computer from all types of viruses and unwanted system changes.

The traditional security software like Avira, Kaspersky, Norton, AVG, NOD32, etc. actively, and on demand, detect and remove infected files. RVS 2010, on the other hand, has a two pronged attack to the malware problem

In terms of features and protections, there are no differences between a trial and a real license -- you get all the same features, updates, and protection.

The free upgrade applies to qualified computers that are running Windows 7 SP1 or Windows 8/8.1.

It does NOT apply to computers that are running Windows Vista.

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.

I'm still on Win7, I noticed that their pop up window to install Win10 has changed, there is no option to select another date for the install, it were only ever 3 days ahead anyhow.

I'm wondering, is the free offer coming to an end then?

Looking through some of the past threads on here, I see that some have reverted back to their old OS after dabbling with Win10, I'm wondering if I should even bother/risk trying it to be honest?.....Although I dare say that I'll be forced to in the end.

i have a couple laptops that both came with windows 8.1 that im going to be selling. both were upgraded to win10 during the free upgrade period and both are currently on anniversary edition. when i look at the activation page, it says "Windows is activated with a digital license linked to your microsoft account". naturally, i will reset windows before sale so does this mean the new owner will not be able to activate windows 10 since it wont be done with my acct? do i need to track down restore media for each and put win8 back on?

A:is the free win10 upgrade transferable to another owner?

That's actually very interesting because historically and even when I had my stint on Windows 10, the license is tied to the machine, not the user. What I would do is reset those laptops and set them up with a local account and see if the activation status is an issue.

Looks like the only way you can get free MBAM is to install a 14 day trial of the Premium version. Should I disable Win 10 Defender during this period or disable MBAM or can they run together? I ask because my SIL's new PC seems to be restarting for no apparent reason. I have disabled MBAM (I think) but maybe I missed a setting that is causing an issue. Thanks.

Hi,
I've read every post I could find on this so I'm sorry to ask another dumb question but here goes.

I created an access database (volunteer work) which has an autoincrement field to issue numbers to animals taken in at our shelter. My 'boss' (also a volunteer) wants this simple autoincrement changed to a value which begins with the two digit year and then has 4 digits, starting with 0001 which will increment sequentially and restart at 0001 with the new calendar year. Therefore, records will start with 10-0001, 10-0002, etc for this year and 11-0001, 11-0002 for next year.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I have an installation folder on my main machine(Windows 7) with all my software. I have repeatedly run into issues connecting odd devices to my shared folder. This time I have installed Windows 10 Technical Preview (on a different machine) and don't understand why it tells me I can't access my own machine. After all these years, you would think user friendly would be a reality. It seems to be a coin toss as to which machines will connect. I hate never knowing I can access my own machine without issue. Here I am trying to install applications but yet I can't get to my storage location.

What is the secret to sharing your machine, so that anyone on the same network can access shared folders?

Edit: I always turn on "Network Discovery" and "File and Print Sharing".
 

A:Network connection issues (year after year)

I'm more brutal via the firewall:

set trust localhost and your lan ip's, eg 192.168.0.1/24

then add two rules for only the PRIVATE PROFILE

inbound allow tcp/udp from 192.168.0.1/24 to any for ports 137-139,445
outbound allow tcp/udp from any to 192.168.0.1/24 for ports 137-139,445
I use a much more complicate scheme in reality to enforce known vs unknown devices and to segregate WiFI from wired access, but that's just me.

In services, ensure these are running

Part2 = ntfs-win7 home premium (primary)
Part3 = ext3-Extended (logical)
Part4 = ext3-LM rafaela (extended)
Part5 = swap (extended)
This setup worked good.

Part2 win7 got buggered, and reinstalled (nvidia chip-set melt down during win7 boot). The MB was replaced.

I can no longer get to win10 boot Part1. Booting to Part1 or Part2 results to booting the newly installed win7. Rafaela boot did not change: still working.

How can I reclaim my win10 boot? I can't upgrade for free anymore so I'm hoping there's a way to work with what's there.

This is unclear. Upgrades do not get a product key but a digital licence tied to hardware id. It is irrelevant if OS is 32bit or 64bit.

If the 64bit version did not activate, then you have a mismatch eg you must install same version home/pro and additionally edition (normal, EU N or SL single language version) as the upgraded version.

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

I thought it would be a good idea in keeping with the overall secure free try free/free source software? and sites & Good movies legal to for goal of this site to Good source sites for secure & legal free movies and free/free to try software? start a thread to give people a list of legal and secure sites for downloading free or dirt-cheap movies music and software games I believe this would helpful in terms of not just telling people not to visit support pirating websites but to also give them other alternatives so that there wouldn't be a temptation to go there anyway And also for people like me that Don't want to steal but also don't want to pay more than I have to Master list of sites for free dirt cheap movies music and free free to try software Music Open Music Archive LEGAL NOTICE Contains music with expired copyright according Good source sites for secure & legal free movies and free/free to try software? to UK copyright law which states that the copyright expires years after the author's death As such some of the music may be considered pirated in countries with longer copyright periods For example The longest copyright period I know of is Mexico years after the author's death INCOMPETECH This guy composes his own music and gives it away for free Movies and or TV Hulu Movies and tv free with ads or for cost of membership watchable without ads http www epixhd com Free for Dishnetwork users Netflix Not completely free but VERY low price Software WARNING As stated by Quietman Many free Software Sites contain ads or link to sites containing ads with misleading download links to potentially dangerous software Be sure to click the correct download link which is usually smaller than the false link and it's usually a good Idea to avoid clicking on links with the words Reccomended or Important next to the link Even if the correct download link is selected Potentially unwanted programs PUPs May be installed if you click through without opting out Bleeping Computer Cnet Download Wide variety of software including games Game demos video and audio players editors etc Cnet installs PUPS practically as a rule unless you opt out MajorGeeks SnapFiles FileHippo Also has a utility for keeping programs up to date A list of unsafe legally questionable for free sites would probably be helpful as well

A:Good source sites for secure & legal free movies and free/free to try software?

That is a good question.
When I think about it Hulu does have movies.
I use Netflix.
I can use http://www.epixhd.com/ as I have Dishnetwork and can use that to be able to watch. Yup, just tested works good.
Many of the Movies channels can be watched that way.

Hello, I have a dual boot Win 10 Pro/Win 10 Pro system. However, everytime I switch OS, I have to re-pair my Bluetooth mouse with that OS again. I have tried many methods online specifically for Win 7,8 /Linux dual boot, however it doesn't work with Windows 10.

Does anyone know any trick to make both OS recognize my Bluetooth mouse without re-pairing every single time? My bluetooth card is internal (Intel Wireless AC-3165 with BT).

I Had Win8.1, tried Win10, had huge problems (Win10 problems and Saitek Drivers non-existent for Win10), went back to Win8.1, Now want to go back 2 Win10 , now that Saitek has newer Win10 drivers for peripherals. (Saitek, was all screwed up refused to make Win10 drivers for a very long time.

Will Win10 install over my Win 8.1 and keep my applications, or will I have to re-load al my applications and programs?

Thanx

I have DCS, IL-2 and also, Steam with Flight Simulators. Also Flight Sticks, etc. Drivers, Software, etc.
All in the Win8.1 install.

A:Had Win8.1, tried Win10, huge problems, back Win8.1, bak 2 Win10

If you use the Media Creation tool to do an upgrade, and as long as you chose "Upgrade this PC now" , you should be fine. The only problems you may encounter are incompatible drivers. You can also create a bootable media, but upgrading it directly is better IMO.
