    I'm now running Windows 10 upgraded from Windows 7 & I have the same continuous problem with the update

    • Toshiba driver update for Toshiba Hotkey Driver - Error 0x800f0203

    I tried your Method 1 to fix it which said changes have been made to my computer & to try & update again which failed.. again & the same message above came up again. My laptop is secure as I run Norton 360, so what should I do next to try & fix this problem?
    My laptop is a Toshiba satellite L650.

    Thank you

    I forgot to add that I have Windows 8.1 in the basic version, so I can not use option 2. I have a problem with Option 1 because it is not working. I downloaded the file Disable_Upgrade_to_Windows_10_update.reg, merged it and rebooted the computer, but when I turn on search for updates in Windows Update again starts download upgrade to Windows 10. Could this be due to the fact that I had turned off the automatic check for updates? Please help*Sad
