Windows 7: Can't install updates, only offers Windows 10 upgrade?

18 Aug 2015   #11

Windows 10 Pro/ Windows 10 Pro Insider

Maybe I misunderstood what you were saying. I installed 10 on 4 of my computers, but not on my Wife's. She is not sure so wants to wait. I have the same notice you have in Windows Update, Get Started. But, when I go and just check the updates I want, it changes to install updates. It then only installs the updates I checked. That's all I meant. I meant no offense. After all, they haven't been real up front about the process. The information is there, you just have to hunt for it.

You could just get rid of the GWX icon and upgrade process and do it manually with the Media Creation Tool whenever you want to. Windows 10 ISO Download - Windows 10 Forums

1). My anti-virus warned me that Windows was "out of date"
Just what Anti Virus program does this sort of thing?

Thank you Steve.

I really did not know Anti Virus programs did such a thing.
I use MSE and it might do the same but I never let it get behind so maybe that is the reason I have never seen such a warning.
