    Just in Task Scheduler/Microsoft/Windows to reset Windows Updates, and UpdateOrchestrator to manual and cannot do it as all I get is Ready.
    You do not get a selection to choose from.I then tried re-setting Windows Update in 'services.msc' to Manual and got an error message telling me 'Access is denied'.

    I also now get another error message when trying to run the ISO Update tool on the USB that it won't work on this PC and a number of files appear to be corrupted.

    So the only course left now is installing a Macrium good image from before I tried this 1709 Upgrade and start all over again!!!

    Time for a bit of breakfast I think, and let the Blood Pressure settle back down!
    Task Scheduler! When you said "Disabled", I think we all took that as the Services. Sorry for the misinterpretation.

    OK!
    If that does not work either then try this:
    Download the ISO for specific Edition, Language and Bit version that match your current Windows, using the MCT (Media Creation Tool download).
    If the ISO is already downloaded, then you don't have to do this twice, since it is re-usable.
    Then use Rufus to write that ISO file to your USB thumb drive, and boot your computer from that stick, and finally follow the instructions.
    OR
    Use any DVD burning utility to write the image to a DVD. I'd prefer the USB stick though, since the images get old quite quickly.
    When downloading the Media Creation Tool file after clicking on the link, all I get is a File downloaded to my PC, I cannot specify the Edition, Language and Bit version that matches what I have in the PC at that point.
    (Win10 Home v1607, English, 64Bit)

    Then when I then run the tool after downloading it I get this screen,(Picture Attached) and removing the 'Tick in the box' all I can change is the Language, the other 'selections' show only Windows 10 while the bottom selection shows 32Bit, 64Bit or Both.

    I would also prefer the USB Memory Stick but I cannot understand why I am getting the error messages telling me the program will not work in Windows!

    @Traveller11 - I see your problem. The current Media Creation Tool is set by MS to DL the most recent version, 1709. You need 1607. Use this. It downloads from the MS servers, the real files, just like Media Creation Tool. It's safe, been used by many here on TF. Screens look identical, you just need to select your version, language, bits, home/pro. Download the small app in this pic, install and run. Then download your ISO choice, and follow Slice's instructions using Rufus.

    No problem. Interestingly when you 'disable' in Task Scheduler in the Windows Update 'folder' it doesn't automatically 'disable' Windows Update in the services.msc listing.

    Not supposed to. The Task simply runs using the service. It's just a job to be run, using the services, etc.

    Did you see my post about the download? Post #43.

    Hi f14tomcat,

    Phew! I nearly missed this one! Think you might have had the 'Afterburners' running! LOL!
    I have now got the 'other' tool, Thanks for that, and spotting the error!

    I have also got the file to use Rufus, so hopefully by this afternoon we will be making some progress!
    Cheers..........

    Hang onto that link and downloader tool. It can come in handy. Looking forward to hearing the progress. Good luck! :)

    @Traveller11 - There seems to be some confusion. Are you try to upgrade to 1709, or create an ISO for 1607?

    When Slice said:

    Download the ISO for specific Edition, Language and Bit version that match your current Windows, using the MCT (Media Creation Tool download).

    He was referring to Home vs Pro, English or whatever language, and 32-bit vs 64-bit. Not the version #. You are on 1607. The tool will download 1709. That's all it knows to do. That is correct if you are trying to upgrade.

    Hi f14tomcat.

    I am trying to upgrade to 1709 and have got the download from the tool you provided the link to.

    However I have had to use a different program to get the ISO onto the USB as the Rufus program was not very helpful or clear in achieving that objective.

    Still the USB is 'prepared, locked and loaded' I just hope when I shut this laptop down and reboot that getting into the BIOS it has the facility to Boot from a USB!

    Cheers!
