I can't get any of them to pull up. I think the best thing for me to do, is to uninstall the update and reinstall the update and see if that will work. What do you all think?

First try logging off and then logging back on.
If that doesn't help, reboot the PC.

I'm not sure what you mean by "I can't get any of them to pull up."

Does it give you an error message ?

You can Enable all tasks history in Task Scheduler, then run it, then look at the history tab for errors.

No, when I click "Run As Administrator", the little circle just spins and nothing else happens. It seems to be working fine on my sister's Windows 7 laptop as well as the Windows 8.1 desktop.

I guess I will just install the Preview and upgrade to it, when it comes out.

You could uninstall and reinstall the update like you asked about.
See if that fixes the problem running the tasks.

If you do install the Preview now, just be aware it is not the final version, and still has some bugs.

Well, I am not going to update to preview right now. But, am I going to be able to install the final version when it gets here, even if I didn't reserve?

Doubt it, you probably have to reserve it, do you have all the proper updates installed ?

Jesse, you can not have the Preview installed and then upgrade to Windows 10.

Windows 10 will only be a free upgrade to those that have Windows 7 or Windows 8.1 installed.

This is my list of updates not to install, if you wanted to upgrade to Windows 10 then, they should be installed.

I have no Windows 10 icon and that`s how I want it

There are certain ones that deal with Windows 10, I`m not going to look each and every one up again.
Other members will know which ones you have to install to get the Windows 10 update icon.
