  2. Explorer Browser window is popping up where ever it wants

    Figured as much.

    Win10 1607 became available on 03 August 2016. If you did a "fresh install" in November of 2016, it should have been Win10 1607. This leads me to believe that you used a previously-created image (e.g., Win10 1511) to do the "fresh install."

  3. Upgrade problem Error We couldn't update the system reserved partition

    When attempting to upgrade to Windows 10 I get the following message when it is trying to install: "We couldn't update the system reserved partition." What is the system reserved system and what does this mean?

    You have received an incomprehensible error message, because the System Reserved partition is not required when you are using the GPT partition style (see screenshots below).

    Partition 1 - 500 MB (EFI System Partition) - UEFI firmware loads files stored on the EFI System partition to start installed operating systems.

    Partition 2 - 40 MB (OEM Partition) – Some computer manufacturers (Lenovo/Sony/Dell) have their own GUIDs for partitions that hold boot loaders to launch manufacturer-specific recovery tools.

    Partition 3 - 1.73 GB (Recovery Partition) – This partition contains Windows Recovery Environment tools and utilities, allowing the user to repair problems that affect the system drive.

    Partition 4 - (Primary Partition)

    Partition 5 - (Primary Partition)

    Partition 6 - 8.32 GB (Recovery Partition) - This partition contains the recovery image that would be restored to the system drive if the Refresh or Reset option in Windows 8/8.1 is used.
