Re: In-Place Upgrade from Windows 7, 8, or 8.1 - Still Possible in November 2020

 

For anyone who might be interested in checking when someone may have last done an in-place update from Windows 7/8/8.1 to Windows 10, I created a topic on a forum for computer technicians that asks this directly, and has requested that folks keep updating it over time.  I doubt that the capability will ever be removed, and if it were to be you can be certain that the entire tech world would light up (or fire up, in an angry blaze) with the news, but . . .

Though the forum is exclusively for computer techs as far as membership goes, anyone can read.  The topic is:

Free In-Place Upgrade from Windows 7/8/8.1 to 10 - When was your most recent one?

Hi tech gurus

I trust you are all well and safe where you are.

I am trying to cope.

1. May I bother you?

With NVDA, one can mark a block of text which one needs to delete.

To do that, you press nvda+shftf9 to mark the beginning of the block
and nvda+shftf10 to mark the end of the block.

How is that done with JAWS?

2. how does one join JAWS mailing list? I am asking this, because I
tried to join in but without success.

Your assistance in this regard is appreciated in advance.

Re: Selecting Text - NVDA & JAWS, Plus JAWS Group Addresses

Hi. To mark a block of text for deletion you can do the following.

Locate the beginning of the text. Press control windows K to mark the beginning of the text. Then navigate to the end of the text and use the layered command insert Spacebar followed by M. This will mark the text. If you want to ascertain that the text selected is correct, press shift insert down arrow to read selected text. You can then delete it, copy it, etc.

Hope this helps. I don't have the subscribe address for the jaws list handy but I'm sure someone will send it out to you soon.

Cheers.

When you run the Media Creation Tool, after it got a few things together, you will be presented with a screen with Legal, Support, Back and Next buttons, and a radio button which, by default, is set to Upgrade this PC. Press down arrow once which will give you the option to create an ISO file. I am at that point now and ready to press Next. Let us hope this process will do it, because nothing else so far has. I am following the steps provided by Brian Vogel. I hope we both will be successful. This is a nasty thing and I have absolutely no idea what could have caused it.

Christo,

             First, for yourself and others for future reference, never, never, never attempt to tweak Windows Security by manually downloading anything like a specific MSI unless you are specifically doing so under the direction of a Microsoft Engineer.  That way can very often lie madness!

My standard advice with regard to any significant peculiarity with regard to when a known built-in component or feature of Windows 10 is misbehaving is not going to change:

1. Using SFC (System File Checker) and DISM (Deployment Imaging Servicing and Management) to Repair Windows 8 & 10

then, if that doesn't solve the problem move on to

2. Doing a Windows 10 Repair Install or Feature Update Using the Windows 10 ISO file

Step one is usually enough, but there are rare occasions when you do need to do a repair install of Windows 10 much like repair installs of other Microsoft software like Office.

You may want to try to reset the windows security app by locating it in the start menu and right click on it and go to more then app settings

 

There you can reset the windows security app

 

I cant guarantee it will work but it cant do any harm

 

Good luck

Hello all

 

I hope there is someone who can advise me as to how to fix this nasty issue I am experiencing with Windows Defender. I am using the latest version of Windows on a 32 bit desktop. This is the issue:

 

When I boot my computer, near the end of the boot process, I get a notification that my virus protection is disabled. When I look in Action Center, I find the notification that my virus protection is disabled, I must click on the notification to open Windows Security to activate virus protection.

 

When I then open Windows Security, I get the following message:

 

"Page not available
Your IT administrator has limited access to some areas of this app, and the item you tried to access is not available. Contact the IT helpdesk for more information."

 

There is no IT helpdesk that I can contact. It is my personal computer and I am the main guy  (the only guy) on it.

 

When I check my Windows update in Settings, there is some install that keeps crashing with an error code of 0x80070643. I have Googled this and found some fairly comprehensive information on fixing it, much of it is identical to the very helpful notes written by Brian Vogel: running SFC, then running dism which I have both done. SFC said that it found and corrected some issues. Still, after rebooting the problem did not go away. There was another suggestion of typing a list of command line instructions to stop and restart the Windows update service and clearing the update information which I also done, but to no avail.

 

The component that failed to install, is:

Security Intelligence Update for Microsoft Defender Antivirus - KB2267602 (Version 1.327.832.0) (2), Failed to install on ‎2020/‎11/‎13 - 0x80070643

 

The next suggestion was to reinstall Windows Defender which I found and downloaded. The program is called mpam_fe.msi. I have tried to run this. The screen comes up that asks whether or not I wish to run the program and I responded with Yes. The screen went away, but nothing else happened. The program simply does not install, it does nothing at all. It is like I never gave the computer any instruction to install the program. I tried this both not as administrator and as administrator, but to the same effect.

 

At a stage I managed to find the virus protection section in Windows Defender and told it to do a quick scan, but it, too, does absolutely nothing at all.

 

In Windows Defender where one sees the list of items such as Home, Account protection, Firewall and network protection, etc., I have 7 instead of 8 items. Virus protection is not there as it is supposed to be.

 

I really am at a loss. I don't know what to search for further or what to do. It feels like I am sitting on a ticking time bomb. Please can someone suggest a solution.

 

My apologies for this rambling explanation, but I have to give as much as possible relevant information.

 

Kind regards

 

Christo

The next suggestion was to reinstall Windows Defender which I found and downloaded. The program is called mpam_fe.msi. I have tried to run this. The screen comes up that asks whether or not I wish to run the program and I responded with Yes. The screen went away, but nothing else happened. The program simply does not install, it does nothing at all. It is like I never gave the computer any instruction to install the program. I tried this both not as administrator and as administrator, but to the same effect.


At a stage I managed to find the virus protection section in Windows Defender and told it to do a quick scan, but it, too, does absolutely nothing at all.


In Windows Defender where one sees the list of items such as Home, Account protection, Firewall and network protection, etc., I have 7 instead of 8 items. Virus protection is not there as it is supposed to be.


I really am at a loss. I don't know what to search for further or what to do. It feels like I am sitting on a ticking time bomb. Please can someone suggest a solution.


My apologies for this rambling explanation, but I have to give as much as possible relevant information.


Kind regards


Christo

Yes, of course.
You can set things up so that all documents and other items are saved locally.
