Wow, this should not be so difficult. I am so sorry. As OldMike says, the most recent ISO from TechBench should give you version 1511 from the get go. And, as I said, once W10 is installed and activated on a system, it can be reinstalled as often as you like/need, so you don't ever have to go back to W7 and start all over.
I did just try the TechBench site, and got an error; said it couldn't log me in right now. Not sure what that's all about. I was going to try and get you a download link.

Sure hope he needed 64-bit and not 32...
backup any other partitions along with C. That Tech Bench ISO never validated my download. I wanted to try the link you suggested.....Windows 10 ISO Download as maybe I was doing the wrong thing. As for the version 1511? I checked my version using run/winver and it is 1511. I didn't know there were different versions but it is 1511. So, here is where I am at right now as I write this. I just reinstalled win 10 ver. 1511. I have updates turned off. Have installed some of the apps I use most. Going to see if it works without updating. Just wish I could choose the updates I want to install but Microsoft must know what's best for me.....yea, right. If it works without updating then what do I do? Just use it that way and hope for the best OR go back to 7. Is it this computer? Don't think so. There are a few older laptops that aren't being used anymore, where I used to work that my old boss might let me have. I'd like to experiment with them. They had 7 on them and might be candidates for win 10 upgrades. BTW Thank you guys for your help on this. Appreciate very much.
Then run verify on Macruim to check your image. Once this is done, you should be able to restore the OS you are on now, right back to same as it is now. Without having to re-install again.
Then once this is done, THEN you can try updating your Windows 10. The version you should be on is this one.
To find out your version, type Winver in your windows search window.
