    Update Realtemp

    As was said, the GT.exe file was for Gulftown processors with 6c, that is the best you will get.

    It does not need to be updated for W10 Fall Creators' update. It works just fine there.

    Windows 10 Anniversary Update Issues

    Problems with W10 Anniv auto update:

    Mom's: (x58 Xeon 5677) Windows Defender was not turned back on automatically (it was "on" in the 1511 edition) and she had a Trojan. Full system scan to eradicate.
    Her Epson printer was knocked off, had to uninstall by Device Manager pull USB cable and reconnect cable. W10 did the rest.

    Step-mom's: (HP pre built) Windows Defender not turned back on by default. Her USB Seagate Expansion Drive 2Tb was offline so all backup routines were halted. Had to rerun backup plan. Had her do a full virus scan.

    Step-dad's: (Dell Optiplex tweaked upgrades) Windows Defender not turned back on by default. Full Scan.

    W10 keeps updating even tho updates are turned off

    Don't want W10 at this time

    Thanks Anil. I guess the description & question re my problem wasn't too clear. I did the things you suggested. Currently, when I now click on "Windows Update" I'm told I have a number of important & optional updates. The W10 upgrade is hidden, unchecked
    and is not listed. All updates are for W7 for x64-based Systems ( my system). However, if I select one or all update(s) & click ok, W10 starts to download even tho de-selected & hidden. Further, the W10 free upload ads keeps popping up on my screen. Any other
    suggestions to resolve this glitch will be appreciated. By the way I'm a computer "dummy" & most "tech" is pretty much over my head.
