    Hi @Roger B - Welcome to the forum. Did the upgrade finish? I personally had to restart my Anniversary Update..... it sat at 99%. Same thing happened to a few users here - https://windows10.help/topic/503-ug-freezes-ay-99/?do=findComment&comment=2093 So don't give up!

    Awesome. What OS do you find that you use more? Windows of MacOS? I have both myself and these days, I can't say if I really have a preference anymore. So what interface is being used to connect that external drive? Is it Thunderbolt or USB or what is it?

    When I 1st opened my win 10, my start menu was small and contained Power/Documents and a few others, none from the app side, now it's loaded, I have tried google search w/no results. How do I get back my small start menu again ?

    ON July 27, 2016 I switched to Windows 10 -- anyway it really didn't work --the store or Cortana, but since I didn't use/have it before thought ok what the hey as everything else worked ok (after over 10 hours of on line support with MSN) anyway one day I wake up and Walla -- Cortana and everything else worked... ok I say well this AM I got up and apparently there was an upgrade on Win 10 and for some reason restart doesn't work on my pc --so I just shut it down and wait a moment and it starts back up... well this morning the time was wrong and I couldn't figure out how to correct it ... long story short -- #1 when asked to be transferred to someone In the United States - they tell me they can't do it (I thought that was a law) and I've been trying to contact MSN Hqtrs to no avail... but again After slamming down the phone on MSN I figured out how to set the clock.... but what gets me is these IDIOTS IN Butt Fleck Egypt told me my pc is not compatible with Win 10 and I should revert back to Win 7.... are they all crazy or what? They now tell me that any future updates might not work on my pc Help Please

    Could I suggest for a clean working windows 10 you try a clean install, you are entitled to do this and use your same id as you do now. As stated above if your system ran on 7 it "should" be ok on 10, but there is no guarantee on this. Clean installs are always preferable to updates. As far as Microsloth advising future updates may not work on your pc is concerned, their record to date with updates doesn't guarantee they'll work on any machine.

    Many users are reporting Windows Update becoming non-responsive after attempting to install KB3189866. KB3189866 is an important security update for Windows 10 Anniversary Update and includes additional improvements. The best way to resolve this problem so far is to manually install KB3189866. You can do it one of two ways. Visit the Microsoft Update Catalog website using Internet Explorer: http://catalog.update.microsoft.com/v7/site/Search.aspx?q=KB3189866 Then download the appropriate copy of KB3189866 for your Windows 10 architecture (32 or 64 bit). You can also download the appropriate architecture directly: 32-bit version 64-bit version

    Hello and Welcome to windows10.help lucyfurferalcat. I have yet to find a computer running either Windows 7 or Windows 8.1 that is incompatible with Windows 10 and I have upgraded at least fifty of them so far. I wouldn't worry about future Windows updates, I'm sure they'll be fine. Are you currently having any other issues with your Win 10 operating system?
