I have Windows 7 and something appears to be keeping it from finding and installing ANY updates, let alone Windows 10.
No new updates for MONTHS. "Checking for updates" can run forever and not find anything.
I have the Windows 10 icon & the GWX.exe (or whatever it's called), but once I click on it, it disappears.
I did make a USB of the Windows 10 software, but I don't want to attempt that until I know the Windows update (ANY updates) will be fixed through that install, or whether I need to fix that problem first before attempting to install Win10 from a USB or disc.
Did a few run-of-the-mill basic troubleshooting and suggestions, but nothing has worked.
I'm not tech savvy, but I know enough about computers to do some real damage in the really pissed off state I'm in. Sometimes, like now, I'm smart enough to know not to go there and ask around instead.
I tried restoring to the last restore point when Windows updates were working fine. This restore failed, likely due to the fact that the last restore point when updates DID work was months prior.
