    Cannot reset


    My computer (Lenovo W510, 64-bit, 4GB memory, i7 chip, 128 GB SSD with 10 GB free) has slowed down drastically, and I keep getting programs failing to respond, or sometimes changing from one to the other without my request.

    My computer will not reset - I have tried several times, and just get a message “there was a problem, no changes have been made.” I then attempted to use a 64-bit ISO file on a DVD, but when I entered the product ID, I was asked for 25 digits, while I only have 20.

    Can you please advise me? I'd prefer to keep my files and programs, if possible, but am prepared to let them go, if necessary. I have cloud backup, and backup on an external drive.

    Thanks, Rob

    :)

  3. Windows 10 fails to update


    When you finish testing the Avast suggestion, make sure that you restart your machine.

    Then if the issue persists, please return to the trouble shooting list in post# 89

    I think there are three steps that remain; the WU troubleshooter, reset WU components, and manual WU reset.

    Supported phones for Windows 10 Mobile Insider Preview


    Your list confirms my phone is eligible, Lumia 521. The windows Insider App fails after ~ 15 seconds, restores data and gives me error 80073cf9. I trouble shot this and went thru all the steps mentioned on several websites including MS without any luck. Short of a hard reset, this is where I am now. Suggestions appreciated.
