Older system? Luckily, she can just upgrade the slower parts, without being forced to buy an entirely different system.

Come on guys, it's the only time I've ever seen a "nagware" icon in the tray from Microsoft, except to register the op system at the beginning, which was a good idea if I wanted to keep using the system. They've upgraded the damn thing, the thing everyone has had stupid issues with for the last 5 years and they want us to get a free copy of the upgrade.

I just hope it works with my ASUS PT2001. I actually kinda like the ability to use the operating system as a tablet and as a desktop.

I also hope that my Profs do't mind me lugging out a 20" tablet in their class.....

if your Asus doesn't support the new security protocols in BIOS, 10 won't work.

Once or twice a year, I downgrade my laptop and use 8 to renew my GPS maps. What a nightmare. I always forget to reenable the security and it refuses to boot until I remember.

If you want to remove the icon go to installed updates, find (KB3035583) and uninstall it. It's a recommended update that only spawns the icon.

I tried to install it over the top of Win 7 but Windows Defender quarantined it - said it was crapware.

I remembered I had a laptop I never use laying around. Installing on that.

Not everyone gets an icon, it'll be released in waves. I saw a thing about how you can force the download if you don't want to wait.

Is there a way to get rid of the Windows 10 update bullshit icon out of my system tray?

Right clicking does not present the option "Get The Fuck Off My Machine".

Well, I'm running Windows 10 and I made it back to the Cellar. Install time was 1 hr. 20 min. on my notebook. That's just installation time not counting prep time, downloading, and checking for post installation updates from Microsoft (there were 2 already) and HP.

It's going to take a while to get used to the new Microsoft Edge browser. I had to import my favorites [bookmarks] from IE and Edge doesn't have a separate Organize Favorites window. Modifying the Favorites list may be a nuisance. I don't see a Move icon that lets you choose a destination folder. You can easily move a Favorite to a folder or sub-folder by dragging it; but, I have to hunt for the way to put it elsewhere from there as the other folders don't display after the move and I didn't see an Undo icon.

Fortunately; however, Edge does allow you to easily open any webpage in the old IE browser with it's familiar Favorites format. That'll make the transition easier.

Interestingly, HP apprises that I not delete Windows 8.1 as some repair services they provide require that the OS be restored to the original version. I'll keep it until I would no longer consider having the notebook repaired.

That's all for now, I just did the upgrade this evening.
