    That would be the correct one to delete for your account.

    On a more positive note Shawn, I will be getting my new computer Tuesday the 22nd. It already is setup for Windows 10 Home. I will be changing that to the Pro version, then most likely, be spending a few hours installing, upgrading, and reinstalling all my registered apps. Then setting up my network, all over again. That's why I am not going to mess with this computer too much anymore. But....I may be bending your ear......Tuesday.....

    Ok being a stubborn old man, kept playing with this dam store app update problem. Found out that it was giving me an error msg.
    Wrote down the error # and then did a search on bing. Turns out this error 0x80073d0a means it found that windows firewall was off.
    Ok......I did turn it off in msconfig long time ago. I am using Nortons, didn't need windows firewall. So I went and turned it on, in msconfig, rebooted, then turned off Nortons firewall for time limit of 1 hour. rebooted again. Their were 20 apps that had updates pending, which never finished. Went into store, clicked on the updates, 17 were completed, 2 were finishing up, then completed, clicked on check for updates, it found one more for Xbox, (which I hate) updated it. So according to the store app, all the updates are completed?? Is their any way to actually check if they really did complete Shawn?? Cause right now, it seems to have worked, just don't know IF it really did.

    The only way that I know of to check is to check for updates in the Store to see if any are available. If not, then they were installed.

    Well then, its fixed, cause can't find anymore updates. Nortons firewall was blocking the updates. Strange, but, I've read reports about this problem with Norton and windows 10 updates. Ok then problem solved.

    Good news. Personally, I wouldn't touch Norton with a ten foot pole with its track record of causing issues in Windows 10 due to it being over aggressive.

    Yes you are correct about Norton, that I can't argue with. But on the other side of the coin, I have been running Norton for years, and just renewed my subscription just last month for another year, as I run Norton on 2 computers. Norton has never given me problems until I upgraded to Win 10. But I will admit that since moving to Win 10, it has made doing some tasks difficult. So I am getting use to learning how to control Norton when an issue comes up. I don't think its just Norton either, I believe their are other AV and firewalls that can also mess up Win 10, not just Nortons. But I am learning more everyday on how to fix these problems, thanks to folks like you Shawn, and the many other good people on this forum!!! Plus my own research too.
    Eventually Windows 10 AND Norton will both come out with fixes, just might take a little more time. Right now, my OS is running stable again, with no problems. I never did a clean install, so that didn't help me much either.
    When I get the new computer, in a few more days, THAT will be a CLEAN install from day one!! Just getting a lot of information ahead of time these last few days in preparing for the task ahead. Thanks to all the information here AND the good folks on here has been a HUGE Help for this old fart. Just goes to show, no matter how old you are...... you are NEVER to old to learn new things.....ever...
