    Delaying W10 which is ready to install on reboot


    I am not sure I want to install just yet, I thought it would be straightforward but find there are some issues I need to check on first so I need to delay the install.

    Is there an option to cancel without removing the download or is the only option to not accept the EULA and would this cause problems later when I have decided to upgrade?

    My main concern is that as I have used CCleaner and Disk Cleaner since installing W7 around 5 years ago.
    Will W10 be able to revert back to W7 or will the installation files have been removed in which case reverting back may not be possible?

    As you can see W10 is raring to go!

    Hi there

    I'm sure people on this Forum will be telling me to wear a DOG Muzzle - since I've been saying this AD NAUSEAM.

    BACKUP your OLD OS with a decent backup program -then you can revert AT ANY TIME (and probably within 30 mins max).

    You won't lose activation status or anything if you have to revert.

    Now saying that --Go on after doing the backup just go for it --what's to lose - if you don't like it just revert using the restore from the backup you've made.

    Give it more than a day though if you REALLY don't like it.

    Cheers

    Thanks Jimbo I have been reading likely looking threads most of this morning and a Google search that listed 10 pages of line by line 10 Forum threads! Where I came across the suggestion of refusing the EULA.

    I have a 'system image' of last night safe and sound, but past experience of Windows upgrades fills me with trepidation.

    I can ASSURE that repeating yourself, although I realise it can be frustrating, is very much appreciated by those of us who do not wish to screw up their systems!

    I would recommend definitely running Disk Cleanup and CCleaner before doing the backup and upgrade.
