Question

windows 10 download in the backround.

by mr_gdogncbd / August 11, 2015 10:33 PM PDT

my HP pavilion g7 is downloading windows 10 in the backround, and it's been downloading since the release. I just checked to see if it was complete...and still I get the ,message "in process of downloading in the backround, windows will contact you when complete. since june 30this has been going on, and as of today still downloading. this doesn't seem right if others have installed windows 10 already. and the check progress on the download access window, when you click on it the windows 10 upgrade window minimizes and goes away. what would the reason be for this to be downloading for 13 days and still not complete.

as with anything else, as soon as I post a question hoping to find answers.....the download completed itself and is ready to install. but with going through the windows 10 forum and seeing all the various issues that have troubled others. I don't see myself wanting to risk having my system going south on me. I think i'll give it a few months for them to iron out some of these wrinkles.

In reply to: I'm not that patient.

as with anything else, as soon as I posted this question the download completed the same evening. but after reviewing the windows 10 forums and seeing some of the issues others have had and the problems which it caused, I don't see myself installing 10 till some of these wrinkles are ironed out for a smoother transition that actually works.
