When windows announced that windows 10 was coming out, they gave a free upgrade to certain people. I was eligible for that upgrade so i put in my request and waited. I didnt know that i would have a problem with my video card and such before i signed up. Every so often windows tries to download windows 10 but fails.

How do i get the free upgrade to stop trying to download?

What is the “Get Windows 10″ Tray Item and How Do You Remove It?

You can download Win 10 Upgrade directly and save it to a USB drive for later install.

Hi and Welcome to TSF!

First, run the Windows Update troubleshooter:

Open the Windows Update troubleshooter - Microsoft Windows Help

Then get the Windows 10 upgrade from Windows Updates.

Go to Windows Update, Check for Updates. When the Windows 10 Update comes up, right click it and Hide it.
