I don't think PMs are restricted to subscribed members. I tried to PM you and couldn't. But Wokie is OK and is not a club member. Suspect it may be something in your profile preferences. In the meantime I have started the download and media creation. It will take some time but will hopefully go smoothly.
If you are having problems, it's always going to be better using a USB or a DVD so you can try things several times without needing to download it each time.
I had a couple of issues with one of my PCs where the upgrade always failed. If the problem isn't with the download, it will still fail using a USB.
If it fails again, you need to make a note of the error code so you can search for a possible answer on the Internet. Somebody, somewhere has usually come across it before.
With mine, I got one error and fixed it by deleting some files after searching for the error. When I tried it again I got a different error which was then fixed by disabling a wireless card and now it's worked.
My apologies guys for being AWOL for a few days. but I just got completely 'wanged' up unscunflashcon style, trying to sort this dopey computer out. :
In the end I think I have managed to clear loads of confusing rubbish out, mainly by deleting a user account and all that it contained.
So now I believeI have fixed the problems with Windows 7, but I'm not totally sure about that?
I have to admit I got so frustrated with trying this and that eventually I just gave up, saying to the wife this computing 'thingie' is way beyond my old comprehension, and I've really just lost all interest in it. :
She told me to go for a ride on my bike to clear my head which I did, and now I feel much better, but I'm making sure that I'll not burn any more midnight oil if the blinkin' thing goes haywire again,.... I'll be curtains for this here Tosh and I will get something else to replace it at sometime or other, maybe?
Back on track for who knows how long, but I have spent many an hour burning that candle I can tell you! :
I think all of my problems have transcended from initially trying to down load the there Widows 10, but.... the day before yesterday what I thought was a completed jobbie' the computer then decided to go...........
tons of bosoms up haywire, as I got hacked by what I can only presume was an Asian site,which completely took over my Tosh!:furious:
Worst part was I could not read Mandarin or whatever lingo it was?
Never been messed up so dramatically before in all the years I have been trying to use various computers.
The missus has given me direct orders,that if I have any more problems I must go out and get a Mac of some description at her expense? :thumbup:
GD, Well I was relying on Microsoft Windows Essential which has been pretty good for a fair old time now, but I reckon it was my own stupid mistake that caused the major crash/attack by clicking on what appeared to a genuine Microsoft Programme,....: Enter the Red Army or whatever it was?
Any way so far so good as you can see working once more on W7, and I have downloaded another firewall and another anti-virus/malware programme. :
