    I am getting a W-10 upgrade Assistant popup. I have had W10 installed


    I've been using Windows 10 on my laptop almost since it came out. In the last few days I have started getting a rather large, white background popup window that says it is Windows 10 upgrade Assistant. I'm not sure what this is or why I am getting it. I suspect malware but Norton didn't find anything. I have Malwarebytes Premium and will run it.
    Does anyone have any idea what this is or why I am getting it?

    Thanks for the help... nervous!

    there have been a few upgrades to the original build of Windows 10, most notably in November 2015. And the next one will be on Aug 2. Go to Start/Search and type CMD, right click the CMD results and Run As Administrator. In the Elevated Command Prompt type winver and press enter. This will tell you what version of Windows you have. If it is Not version 1511, then the Upgrade Assistant may be offering you the upgrade

    Thank you, if it comes back I'll try that. In fact I'll look anyway. I think I remember having to roll back an update but I thought I reinstalled it but I'll check. I deleted the "Assistant" again and so far it has not come back. I ran a full virus scan and Malwarebytes, rebooted after uninstalling it again. It bothered me that the word china is in it, as with some others. Seems spooky, then again if it was some malware from China surely they wouldn't add the word china in the location/properties. I'll follow up if it comes back and I'll check my version... thanks again!

    It is version 10.0 (build 10240). It hasn't been a problem. I wonder why it is just popping up? I guess if it does again, I'll try to ease my way through it. I've had several updates that required a restart over the last months though... weird. I just want to be sure I'm not installing some malware.
    Thanks,

    BTW, in settings. Windows Update tells me I am up to date: "Your device is up to date. Last checked: Today, ‏‎8:29 PM"...
    IDK, MS is weird sometimes.

    the actual Version of Windows 10 is 1511 OS build 10586.420 .
    yours is a version prior to the November update. What you can do is using the Media creation tool and upgrade your Windows 10 with that. After finishing the upgrade you will have to install the latest cumulative update (which the Update will show you anyway). Then you will be up-to-date for the next round on August 2nd 2016 when Redstone will be released.
