Another Windows 7 Update To Lookout for, I Was Wrong, Very Wrong

Mike B <mb69mach1@...>
 

Hi All,
 
I am terribly sorry for the erroneous message I sent earlier about the Security Update for Windows 7 for x64-based Systems (KB3097877)                   3.5 MB.  What it was, was a very strange coincidence & this update is indeed valid.  Carlos from TechTalk set me straight with the following info:
 
From: Carlos
Hi Mike,
According to this article
and this description
on the Microsoft page, KB3097877 is a security patch and has nothing to do with upgrading to Windows 10.  Perhaps you unknowingly reinstalled KB3035583 which is the update responsible for the Windows 10 upgrade.
 
I am terribly sorry for any inconvenienceI have caused anyone, & I give my deepest apologies.
 
Take care.
Mike

Hi Mike,
No need for apologies.  Sometimes Windows is just flakey.

Hi Carlos,
 
No I checked & the 3,035,583 wasn't installed, I got the Get Started prompt for downloading Windows 10 window when I opened Windows Update, & after checking Available Updates this was the only update so, after hiding it the Get Started window went away.  Do you think this was just a coincidence?  It sure seemed like this update created the Get Started option to download Windows 10.
Take care.

There could be something else going on which coincidentally triggered the Windows 10 upgrade prompt at the same time you hid KB3097877, but a Google search did not immediately generate any results of anyone else experiencing the behavior you are describing with this update.

Re: I know there's a way to do this ...

There are many such tools.  You can try Win32Whois
which is accessible.  Although I haven't used it enough that I can vouch for it's accuracy.

Re: Looking at a new Router

Thanks Sir.  I just don't have room for an extra modem.  I don't care about cable Internet, DSL works just fine for my purposes.  Router without a built-in modem may jolly well be a tough call for me to make.  I keep searching.  In the meantime, I keep piggy backing off another router at home from XFinity or whatever name it goes by--sorry, I remember--ComCast!  Hmm, it may just CAST ME into the sea if I lose my bounce and balance.

Re: Did a clean install of Win 10 without upgrading

Carlos
 

You should be able to start the installation while still booted into Windows.  Of course you will lose speech eventually when setup has to reboot, but by then it shouldn't require anymore interaction on your part.  When setup is complete and it reboots for the last time, you can just start Narrator to proceed.

I think you will need sighted assistance when you boot to the ISO disk at least to get you past the custom install and choosing the partition. I have a little sight so I was able to see this with a magnifier.

No, but of course you will have to install JAWS on the Windows 10 installation.

Ok, partition my HD off and downloaded the MS tool and ran it and now downloading the ISO image.

So a Question: I am running JFW17 but it will not be installed on the partition I am installing window10 on so I should not have to worry about uninstalling and reinstalling jaws? I also would think the same about my printer and router?

Interesting that you did not need your product key when installing it in a dual boot configuration.  Perhaps it simply detects that there is an existing qualifying Windows installation on the system and allows it based on this fact.

I know when I go no mail and have to go up there 99 percent of the time I don’t know my password and have to jump through all kind of loops . If I knew how to go no mail by sending an email from my mail client like you would do to unsubscribe or subscribe I would do it that way.
