    I'm Back Again...On Another Ten Upgrade

    This time, I'm trying to upgrade Windows 10 from Windows 7 Home on my wife's Dell laptop. Started this morning at 7:am I checked to see if there were any updates to be installed. It showed there were 25 updates. I click to have them installed. That taken about 70 minutes, and it showed these 25 updates "failed to download and install". Clicked on View Update History and it shows these 25 updates did in fact downloaded and install. Went back to check if any updates showed ready to be install, and there where those same 25 to be updates I clicked again to be installed.

    Here it is some 12 hours later, and these 25 updates have installed 15 times. I have 430 of the 25 updates installed, and the computer tells me I have more updates to be installed, which is the same 25 as mention above.
    I've have Microsoft website up and it shows "Get your free Windows 10 upgrade her, and I click ..Upgrade Now. And you know what... It goes through the same old routine.

    I'll stay with 7 for the time being.

    You can do what cerebrus said but sounds to me like your Windows 7 is messed up. To fix it you would need to download and run the System Update Readiness tool. It would take less time to backup her data and download the iso for Windows 10 using the Media Creation Tool and do a clean install on the lappy. You can use your Windows 7 product key. That way you know you'd be going into Windows 10 perfectly clean. You might be better off in the long run.
