Windows 7: It's time for Microsoft to fix the Windows 7 update slowdowns

Look under Standalone software, it doesn't look like anything has changed on the Retail transfer. That was a year ago, but I can't see anything changing with regards to transfer.

I'm still not convinced the upgrades will be transferable though.

I don't see why they would still entertain portability
The way devices are now days they are mostly disposable like cell phones

If nothing else my post and this thread shows one thing for sure.

We really don't know what Microsoft is doing or what it is up to.
So far the only thing I'm sure of is, Microsoft is trying hard and will continue to trying to get people off of Windows 7 and 8.
They will use any means they can think of.

My personal method is simple.
I'm not risking my Windows 7 COA keys on so many maybes, I don't knows and who really knows for sure.
When I decide to get W-10 I will just buy it.
That will give me Windows 7 COA keys that work and W-10 COA keys that work.

One Windows 7 in my hand is better than two W-10 in the bush.

I think that is wise advice. I'd be counting on restoring a W7 image, but who knows if or when I would see that "your product is not genuine" notice?

I upgraded my Win 7 to 10 back last July 29th when it came out. I have a valid digital entitlement for Win 10, and I have also since reinstalled Win 7 from scratch and it activated without any problems or issues. I also have images of 7 which work fine and are activated. If you upgrade to 10, you will still have your 7 license intact if you should decide to go back.

Here's something of interest guys. Look under the fixed issues section:

https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/3161647

Will await to see if it's a permanent fix this time.

That would be nice, but I'm a little wary at this point. It's a 27.5MB patch and Google returns just one hit at this point - the Microsoft description: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/3161608

I hope this is legit, but there seems to be some wiggle room in there for MS to drop in another W10 mole. I'm not saying that's the case, though who could be blamed for being suspicious at this point?

I personally will wait a few days and let others be the guinea pigs.

Hi,
It just showed up on my Acer but not the other 2 machines yet :/
I hate it when only one machine finds updates

Agreed, I'm not too keen on this idea of update rollups either. I don't really see the benefit of them as it's giving the user less choice of what to install. I'll happily install it if it does fix this annoying slow update problem once and for all. But I'll be taking a good look at the files it replaces before installing it on a main system.
