Re: Win10 version 1909 end of servicing.

Enes,
Jim has been trying to download the updates, and he has spend several hours on the phone with the MS help desk, and they tell him they can't do anything. Jim is still on Win 10 version 1909, and in order for him to update to 20h2, he most definitely needs to do a complete install.

When you go into windows update, you should see the option to download
and install windows 2009.

Not really, windows 2009 is a free upgrade from 1909.

Ok I didn't know this until now. So this is something I have to go
to the store and buy to get the continued support I guess.

That's right. I wasn't thinking about the time properly. Having
said that, two months without updates isn't any sort of
catastrophe. Have your data files, music, books, whatever else
backed up, as they should be anyway, browse sites that are
considered safe, keep your browsers updated, have your antimalware
definitions current, follow safety rules, and the gap in protection
is unlikely to cause problems and if it does, you will have all
your data files backed up to be placed on the next machine. Keep
the drive you are backing them up on disconnected from the machine
when you aren't using it. You should do that anyway. That way, if
the machine should become infected, your data is much less likely
to be affected.

I don't think there is any good way to proceed except these choices::
Continue to use the machine as it is, perform a reset and see what
happens, reinstall Windows from scratch, which I don't think should
be done until after a reset is attempted, or take the machine to a
reputable repair place and see what they find and recommend.

I'm not trying to be dictatorial. I'm telling you what I think the
choices are that make sense. There is a chance, it may be a small
or quite a small one, that the machine won't work or won't work as
well after you try a reset. It may solve your problems, at least
temporarily, however. And if necessary, whatever happens with the
reset, you can reinstall Windows from scratch if you wish or take
it to a shop and have it done. If you can't do things that are
important, you may want to try a reset and reinstall Windows if a
reset doesn't work. Either way, there will be considerable work
involved because you will have to reinstall all programs.

I should also say that if you take the machine to a good tech,
he/she may find a way to solve the problems you are having while
not doing a reset or reinstalling Windows. I don't know how likely
that is, however, and you may end up spending more than you want
with the result that the problems aren't solved or that not all are.

Gene,
May 11 2021, is only some weeks away. Jim said he will get the new
PC in 3 or 4 months from now.

Which means that it is still receiving security and stability updates.
Therefore, there is no security reason to upgrade at this time. the
other
computer should be there long before support stops.
