help, can't get balloon about Win 10 back!


Jessica D <jldail13@...>
 

Hi,
I have a windows 7 laptop, with both Jaws 16, and NVDA 2018.1.1 on it
This morning, when I booted the system, I got a message in the corner of my screen, which said, "get windows 10" so I clicked it, and supposedly, reserved my copy.
note: at that time, I wasn't connected to wifi, but apparently it still worked.
I wish I could get that balloon back, now that I'm connected just to make sure.
Windows 7 is very slow.

What can I do?
Sorry for cross-posting but I felt that was best, since I have both screen-readers installed, although, Jaws is unlicensed.

Thanks for any help you can provide.



Thanks,
Jessica

Hi.  It may be downloading it in the background.

However, if you want to initiate the process manually to ensure that it is happening, you can get the tool to upgrade your pc from here.

https://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=691209


Has this pc ever had windows 10 on it before.  The free period for upgrading is over so it will need to have obtained a license already or it will want you to purchase a product key.

Write back if you need more help.

Brian.

If it's downloading in the background, can you tell by looking at something in the system tray or in some other way?  And why was this message shown now?  Did you do anything at any time to try to apply for or get Windows 10?

Hi


Basically wait until it is downloaded to your computer. it may not be
straight away. It may be either a 3 gig or 3.6 gig download depending
which operating system you have either a 32 bit or 64 bit version of
windows.


From what i have read not sure where the article is but people with
assistive technology can still get the update for free.

Hi. Okay, then you will need to obtain a license if you upgrade as the free period is over.


The tool that I referenced in my original message will get it for you and upgrade it with your files in place, although, I think you will have to re-install Jaws after the upgrade from what I remember.


No, there is not a windows 10 premium.  I think if you upgrade, you will get windows 10 home. doubt taht will matter.


If win 7 is really slow, I think it might be worth investigating why that is rather than just upgrading.  If it is an  issue of a corupt windows or one that is full of add ware or something else making it slow, upgrading might not be the best plan.  it might be better to do a clean install.  With the newest version of iwndows 10, this is possible with speech and I have done it on several machines with no eyes at all.

There's no Win premium but there is a Windows 10 Pro but that will cost extra to upgrade to that and you probably really don't need it anyway so stick with home version.

Several observations:

  1. If you have Windows 7 (any edition) and are still getting any sort of "Upgrade to Windows 10" messages the only reason would be that your Windows Update process is broken, since GWX [Get Windows X - Ten] was removed by Windows Update on Windows 7 systems within a few weeks of the end of July 2016.  That, or you or someone else set up something to intentionally block Windows Updates (and many people did for GWX) that blocked the removal patch from downloading and installing.
  2. Even though the free update period is over officially, updates to Windows 10 on Windows 7 and Windows 8/8.1 systems continues to work, at least as of last week.  You can use the method documented in:  Updating Windows 10 using the Windows 10 ISO file
  3. The free Upgrade to Windows 10 for Users of Assistive Technologies ended as of 12/31/2017, as you'll see if you check out the webpage.  You can no longer download the Windows 10 ISO or use the Update Assistant from that page.

Jessica,

          Before you look into buying a product key see if Windows 10 is activated already.  Go to Settings, Update & Security, Activation Pane and see what's indicated under the Activation section at the top of the pane.

Hi


is it asking for a product key and giveing you a 30 day count down?


I think i have a machine here which has windows 10 which is unregisted from scratch as it did not get the free upgrade because it had vista on it and it is still going.


I also had a friend who upgraded not all that long ago from windows 7 using assistive tec and no registration or payment required no water marks etc as well.

I'd not say 7 is slow. I think we need to know if its always been slow or has slowed, and then discuss why. In my experience when i did dip my toe in the 10 water, a machine which was slow on xp or 7 was equally slow on 10!
Not always of course, but it depends on the reason for the slowness, ie processor throttling lack of ram or hard disc fragmentation. often fitting an ssd in a machine seems to miraculously speed it up!

is it asking for a product key and giveing you a 30 day count down?


I think i have a machine here which has windows 10 which is unregisted from
scratch as it did not get the free upgrade because it had vista on it and it
is still going.


I also had a friend who upgraded not all that long ago from windows 7 using
assistive tec and no registration or payment required no water marks etc as
well.

Several observations:


1. If you have Windows 7 (any edition) and are still getting any sort of
"Upgrade to Windows 10" messages the only reason would be that your Windows
Update process is broken, since GWX [Get Windows X - Ten] was removed by
Windows Update on Windows 7 systems within a few weeks of the end of July
2016. That, or you or someone else set up something to intentionally block
Windows Updates (and many people did for GWX) that blocked the removal patch
from downloading and installing.
2. Even though the free update period is over officially, updates to
Windows 10 on Windows 7 and Windows 8/8.1 systems continues to work, at
least as of last week. You can use the method documented in: Updating
Windows 10 using the Windows 10 ISO
file<https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/wiki/windows_10-windows_install/how-to-upgrade-to-windows-10-creators-update/617a37da-8fc0-4f33-a3eb-59fe9082f925>
3. The free Upgrade to Windows 10 for Users of Assistive
Technologies<https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/accessibility/windows10upgrade>
ended as of 12/31/2017, as you'll see if you check out the webpage. You can
no longer download the Windows 10 ISO or use the Update Assistant from that
page.

How much would a product key cost?

Hi,

I'm proud to say, that as of this afternoon, I updated to Windows 10, without speech, using "seeing AI" on my iphone.

All I need now, is a product key.

My computer is very fast now.

how about windows vista?
People need to stop disabling Windows Updates, period.  This is yet another example of where doing so creates more problems than it solves.

If Windows 7 was allowed to run its normal Windows Update process the "offer" of Windows 10 would have disappeared very shortly after the end of July 2016.  It is only on machines with broken or blocked updates where GWX, the Windows 10 offer "nagware," still rears its ugly head.  It was removed via the normal update process 21 months ago.

Vista was never eligible for a free upgrade to Windows 10 and GWX was never installed on Vista machines.

Well you can't autoupdate anymore to windows 10, thats no longer happening.

You can go to control panel and then windows update or action centre and open windows update and from settings change things, there may be an automatic update settings in control panel to turn it off.

Then go to run type services.msc and then right click windows update choose properties, choose disable, hit ok, close the services, then have time being insecure but you can do that.

You can't autoupdate to win10 anymore.
