    Windows 10 upgrade good so far

    Well I decided to post how my Windows 10 upgrade went because I felt like I was among the group that was left out from getting anywhere with the upgrade lol.
    First of all I was like many here who had Windows 10 reserved on this PC but never received the $Windows~BT folder or any notice since the 28th and my laptop had no problems with that.
    This morning I decided to use the Media Creation Tool and upgrade this PC.
    Opened the tool with administrator and the purple box gave me "there was a problem" with install. Forget the exact words but it only offered me "close" option. So I searched for an answer. A suggestion said to check Region and Language to be sure it was set to United States (even though I live in Canada and Windows 8.1 was set to Canada) so I done that and checked the 2 boxes on the bottom in the next popup box. Then closed the Control Panel. Then started the Media Tool again and everything went smooth. Windows Media Center uninstalled without any problems at all during the upgrade.
    I am happy to report that all my programs from Windows 8.1 work without a problem. I have tested just about all of them. My ESET Smart Security ver.8 was still intact and working after the complete upgrade. I didn't have to uninstall it for the upgrade.
    Windows 10 is activated also.
    So far a happy camper!

    windows 7

    My wife's laptop with 8.1 upgraded very smooth. My desktop with 7 was not so smooth - took two tries but eventually got it done. Both are activated. I downloaded the iso with the media tool and used it to upgrade.
