    Installed Win 7 HP (Genuine) & No Windows 10 Icon...


    I just installed Windows 7 HP (genuine and activated) on my PC so that I could get the free upgrade to Windows 10, but I don't see the upgrade icon on the taskbar. I've installed all the updates and even tried Cnet's file to put the icon back on the taskbar. Is there something I can do to get this back?? The 'Win10fix' file from Cnet says that I have all the updates needed to get the free upgrade to Windows 10 but no icon.

    Thank you for responding Cliff S. I got it to work. I uninstalled the KB3035583 update, reboot and then checked for any updates. It showed I had one, the one I uninstalled and got it to reinstall and then it was in my taskbar. So if anyone else has this problem, try doing what I did.

    You're welcome, this happen to me often, I ask someone for help with something(in real life too) and the problem solves itself seconds later.
