Windows 7: "Get Windows 10" Icon

Jesse so you understand how things work.

Things that are in msconfig/Start up that are unchecked will still work when you tick on them or their icon. They just won't run in the background when not needed.

I also recommend checking msconfig/Startup now and again because with updates and some programs they will slip in the Startup without you knowing it.

Also double check to make sure your active security programs continue to stay checked.

Myself I'm going to wait a while for Windows 10. Their is no hurry. Windows 10 isn't going any where.

I am through with this conversation. If yall want me to leave the forum, then I will leave. This is the best forum I've found to get help. Guess I will be going to the Microsoft Community from now on.

There is a community provided tool/script that will go through several means to fix the common issues. The link to this tool/script is buried on page 90 of this forum - but the easier way to find it is in the middle of this InfoWorld article - it's the dropbox link https://www.dropbox.com/s/0u0au9xgy6..._full.zip?dl=0 which is also referred to in the article below:
How to remove (or acquire) the Windows 10 free copy icon | InfoWorld
Instructions to run the tool:
1. Go to https://www.dropbox.com/s/0u0au9xgy6..._full.zip?dl=0 and download the file.
2. Copy the win10fix_full.bat file to anywhere else like desktop.
3. Right click the file and click run as administrator.
4. Follow the screen instruction untill to come to main menu screen.
5. On main menu screen do step 1 first and check if you go the updates insalled and and then press any key it will take you back to main menu.
6. Now do step 2 which only takes like 1 second and should have the icon in the task bar.
Please note this tool is not officially from Microsoft is not sanctioned by them but it has been reviewed by me, is not malicious and certainly makes it easier to get the process done.

The only problem that I have now, is that it won't show up that I am reserved for Windows 10 in Windows update. It does on my sister's laptop, but not mine.

Dont worry about the reservation, Jesse. You will be able to upgrade to 10 without any problem even not reserved.

So, I wouldn't rush. Best to let the early bugs get ironed out first. You've got a full year to get it for free so personally I wouldn't rush it.
