    Ok thank you.
    But how do I check to see if I still have windows 10?
    I already checked what programs are installed and did not see it.
    Well, how did you download it ?

    I think I detect a language problem here.

    Some people used "download" as a synonym for "install". (I don't.)

    Did you (Elima4) download (not install) a file for Win 10? How did you run it? (Microsoft does not permit a direct upgrade from Vista to Win 10.)

    How to do a clean install:

    Windows 10 - Clean Install

    There's a lot of detail there. Maybe too much for many people.

    You don't uninstall Vista. You erase the partition and install Win 10 from scratch. Note that with a clean install, you'll have to re-install all software and settings. That may be a problem if you lack installers for your software. (Example: if your laptop came with MS Office pre-installed.)

    I recommend making a full backup image of your Vista installation before proceeding. That would allow you to go back to where you are now in the event of a problem.

    I hope that Win 10 is compatible with your laptop. It's possible, but you may wish to check whether HP supports Win 10 on it. ( If not, it may still be compatible, but you may have trouble with drivers.

    The best advice that I can offer is that you seek help from someone more experienced. You might succeed without help, but you could easily wipe out stuff that you don't wish to lose.
