And finally for now, Malwarebytes has a new version 4.0.4 so go to malwarebytes.com and downlowd the free 14-day premium trial for real time protection then it reverts to the Free version
Yes, you lose realtime protection when it goes to free version. Only manual scans will reveal malware. I paid for it (and avast pro) and have never had a virus.

Even the free version of MBAM tends to block some sites, there is a tracking list of malicious site it refers to, and AVG Free also halts viruses realtime (Avast and AVG are co-owned)

And other than it not liking my Nvidia card (I can use the onboard if need be), Installation has moved on to updatines and will restart a few times and I haven't had a video problem yet.

I'm using it now but for some reason my email is not being accepted as my Microsoft account, the password is the correct one for it but MEH.

I did these things yesterday into this morning:

Samantha and Endora are now both Win 10, Samantha needs 1909. Like mother, like daughter (except a mortal owns both :D

Wylla (HP Pavilion m7690y) tried to convert twice and halted at the logo with no rotating balls. It froze there and I shut it off to let it revert. Wylla is 32-bit.

Oddly enough, Phoebe (Dell Vostro 410) is ALSO 32-bit but upgraded without a hitch, and IT'S A BIT OLDER...

Alison (HP Pavilion P7-1111) would freeze clicking on the setup file from the USB thumb drive I loaded both 32 and 64 bit Win 10 on...

so I went to bed at 5:30 - 6 AM and came back 1/2 hour ago, tried something different.

I ran setup as administrator. BAM! It's now installed and updating on Alison. I will try that on Wylla.

The good news is that I think all five W10 machines are already up to 1909 and just need a couple updates.

Shooting for number 6 now!

One other nice if small thing...Instead of having to wait a minute for the desktop slideshow to change images things switch the same as they did in Win 7...I have a BAZILLION images, so it's really fun to watch.

Hmmm...Is the Malicious Software Removal Tool working or not? It shows up in the queue but I never see if it ran. It was completely failing in Win 7 due to a bad piece of code.

I'm trying to run the Update Tool as an administrator on the remaining Pavilion Wylla so we'll see what happens.

No go, and this is the error message and link from the window if you click on Troubleshoot:

Wylla she or Wylla she not well not (7).JPG Wylla she or Wylla she not well not (9).JPG

What does it mean? I thought maybe the boot order was set wrong but it does this from the download as well as the thumb drive. It isn;t a corrupt file because I just made two installations from it.
