  1. Unable to Update Windows 10 Home or Upgrade Windows 10 Pro


    For 1.5 months, I have not been able to update Windows10-Homever-2004 OS Build 1904.1


    I do have User Account Control UAC Administrator Rights, a Windows Live Account also Windows 10 Activation and Product ID#


    30 Oct 2020 - Day 1 - began because for over a week, Windows Update fails, Troubleshooters unable to Repair.


    31 Oct 2020 - Day 2 - System Restore did not complete - possibly due to Anti-Virus & Malware enabled, causing this. I Did Disable both Norton & Malwarebytes on another attempt Day 3


    ------------

    Windows Update


    There were problems downloading some updates, but we'll try again later. If you keep seeing this, try searching the web or contacting support for help. This error code might help: 0x8000ffff


    The error code 0x8000ffff means your Windows 10 is having update issues. This error usually appears after Windows updates and locks the Windows Store.

    ------------

    I have ran Troubleshooting Windows Update several times, receive ErrorCode: 0x80070057


    Another Error when running any Troubleshooters ErrorCode: 0x800705B4

    ------------


    I have ran CMD Admin: SFC /scannow with error unable to repair



    ------------

    I have further done the following


    DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Checkhealth
    The component store is repairable. The operation completed successfully.

    DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Scanhealth

    The component store is repairable. The operation completed successfully.


    DISM.exe /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth

    The source files could not be found. Use the "Source" option to specify the location of the files that are required to restore the feature.

    and ------------


    CMD-Admin: chkdsk C: /f /r /x



    ------------

    1 Nov 2020 after twice deleting Win10's SoftwareDistribution Folder - still cannot Update Win10 Home as of 6 No2020


    ------------


    Another issue I encounter is Windows Start and type in Services.msc and receive the following Red Error Screen


    This app has been blocked for your protection.


    An administrator has blocked you from running this app. mmc.exe


    Although I can Open Task Manager, select Services Tab, at the bottom a link to Open Services for purpose of stopping or starting specific services needed if/when prompted.


    ------------


    Patience is a virtue...especially having used Windows for 29 years now....HELP ! is there anything I can do short of a Clean Install ?

    Microsoft to make Windows 10 updates mandatory

    Well, at the moment at least, you can choose to defer upgrades. Under Settings > Windows Updates > Advanced options you need to check the box labeled "Defer upgrades". What does that do? Good question. The answer I've found might illuminate it to a degree.

    http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-10/defer-upgrades-in-windows-10

    I hear this only applies to Pro and Enterprise editions. But I can't verify that.

    Windows 10 upgrade problem, no input accepted

    I really hate having to come here and ask for help, but I really am stumped. It hurts my geek pride. I have a PC with fairly modern hardware in it. It has a p8p67 pro in it. I have tried upgrading windows 10 on it twice now. Both times I have had the same result.

    After windows finishes upgrading it goes to the log in/set up screen. I can't do anything. No keyboard or mouse input is accepted.

    I will list some, or hopefully all, of the troubleshooting steps I have tried:
    • Move keyboard and mouse to different USB ports.
    • Try different keyboard or mouse.
    • Restart computer, repeatedly.
    • Google for related issues.
    • Update Bios, because why not.
    • Create boot media and revert to windows 7.
    The windows 10 system restore boot media works fine with keyboard and mouse. All USB ports work in windows 7. I don't know what is wrong. I suspect that windows 10 is lacking a driver of some sort, but since the computer accepts no input I have no way of checking for which driver let alone installing it.

    Please help me figure this out. If I have to revert back to windows 7 again, I am not going to get it upgraded to windows 10. Thank you in advanced.
