Windows 10 Free Upgrade Not Upgrading? What to do. Tips

If you are like many, your Windows 7, 8, or 8.1 is not upgrading as you expected.

This free upgrade which you are allowed to take advantage for one year is supposed to have been released yesterday July 29, 2015.

If you click the “Get Windows 10” icon in your system tray it should alert you to start the install.

Some users are reporting an error:

 “WindowsUpdate_80240020 OR WindowsUpdate_dt000” (1)
Which appears after the download is complete and then the installation is starting.   If you repeat the steps below, some users have been able to install, but it does appear to be an issue.

The window shows:

Your upgrade is reserved!

There’s nothing you to do right now. You’ll get a notification on your PC or tablet when the Windows 10 is ready to install.

So how do you force the Windows 10 upgrade, as Microsoft is rolling out Windows 10 in waves, which means it could be weeks before you are able to download the new operating system.

1. Launch the hard drive which houses your Windows operating system. This is usually the C: drive.

2. Navigate to C:WindowsSoftwareDistributionDownload and delete all the files within the Download folder. This should give you a clean start with Windows Update.

3. Open up the Windows Update app by hitting the Windows key and simply searching for “Windows Update”. Hit enter to launch the app.

4. While Windows Update loads, open the command prompt by hitting the Windows key again and searching for “cmd“.

5. But do not hit enter – instead right-click on the item and choose “Run As Administrator.”

6. Once the windows opens, type – but do not hit return – “wuauclt.exe /updatenow” (but without the speech marks).

7. Back to the Windows Update window, click on the “Check for Updates” button in the menu on the left-hand side, beneath Control Panel Home.

8. Once you have clicked the menu option a progress bar should appear with Windows telling you it is now “Checking for Updates…”

9. While this loads – quickly navigate back the command prompt window and hit enter on the command you typed in earlier.

10. Now Windows Update should tell you that Windows 10 is available and that the installer is being downloaded.

There are reports that Microsoft has disabled this from working.

Walter J. Palmer, DDS River Bluff Dental – Dentist Lion Killer – Letter to Patients

Update: U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, Edward Grace, the service’s deputy chief of law enforcement, is asking for Palmer to report for questioning. We ask that Dr. Palmer or his representative contact us immediately

“They went hunting at night with a spotlight, and they spotted Cecil,” officials said. “They tied a dead animal to their vehicle to lure Cecil out of the park.”

Walter Palmer allegedly shot Cecil with an arrow but failed to kill him. He tracked Cecil for 40 hours and shot him to death with a gun, officials said.

Cecil was skinned and beheaded, officials said. His head has not been found.

To my valued patients:

As you may have already heard, I have been in the news over the last few days for reasons that have nothing to do with my profession or the care I provide for you. I want you to know of this situation and my involvement

In addition to spending time with my family, one of my passions outside dentistry is hunting. I’ve been a life-long hunter since I was a child growing up in North Dakota. I don’t often talk about hunting with my patients because it can be a divisive and emotionally charged topic. I understand and respect that not everyone shares the same views on hunting.

In early July, I was in Zimbabwe on a bow hunting trip for big game. I hired several professional guides and they secured all proper permits. To my knowledge, everything about this trip was legal and properly handled and conducted.

I had no idea that the lion I took was a known, local favorite, was collared and part of a study until the end of the hunt. I relied on the expertise of my local professional guides to ensure a legal hunt.

I have not been contacted by authorities in Zimbabwe or in the U.S. about this situation, but will assist them in any inquiries they may have.

Again, I deeply regret that my pursuit of an activity I love and practice responsibly and legally resulted in the taking of this lion. That was never my intention.

The media interest in this matter – along with a substantial number of comments and calls from people who are angered by this situation and by the practice of hunting in general – has disrupted our business and our ability to see our patients. For that disruption, I apologize profoundly for this inconvenience and promise you that we will do our best to resume normal operations as soon as possible. We are working to have patients with immediate needs referred to other dentists and will keep you informed of any additional developments.

On behalf of all of us at River Bluff Dental, thank you for your support.

Kenny Chesney & Jason Aldean – Pasadena Rose Bowl July 25, 2015 – Tickets, Parking Info, Tips @rosebowlstadium #pasadena

Kenny Chesney & Jason Aldean

Kenny Chesney & Jason Aldean
Brantley Gilbert, Cole Swindell and Old Dominion

July 25, 2015 | 5:00PM
Rose Bowl Stadium – Pasadena, CA

Kenny Chesney has covered a lot of ground – and he believes he’s got a lot more ground to go. The triple and reigning Academy of Country Music and two time and current Country Music Association Entertainer of the Year sold more tickets in North America than anyone last year, played football stadiums and sang the songs that capture the way the people of the fly-over live their lives, dream their dreams and feel the moments that define them. Just Who I Am: Poets & Pirates is in many ways Chesney’s most intimate album to date. Still marked by the high jinks and good-time revelry he’s known for the tropical feeling morning-after introduction of “Got a Little Crazy,” the shimmering, wide-open embrace of being young and free of “Just Not Today” – but the musical synthesis and emotional openness could’ve only come from a life lived in, around, making and loving music. Certainly one need only listen to the halting apology of a man who knows he’s built to fade, “Better as a Memory,” to hear both the nakedness of knowing one’s limit and recognizing sometimes the kindest thing to do is not get carried away in the emotion or the moment. “The more people I get to see in front of me – whether it’s at a football stadium or a funky little bar like the Hog’s Breath in Key West – the more I realize how much we all have in common. There are a lot of people punching a clock or having too much on their plate, a buncha people on their first date, with that nervousness and excitement that they’re really there…we all want the same things, all hope for the same stuff and I feel like pretty much worry about the same stuff, too.

Beer Tasting Legal at Farmer’s Markets in California Starting in 2016

California Gov. Jerry Brown signed a bill legalizing beer tasting at farmers markets.

Making markets in the nation’s agricultural heartland more booze-friendly.

Craft brew sales are permitted at farmers’ markets under legislation Brown signed last year.

AB774 by Democratic Assemblyman Marc Levine of San Rafael will allow vendors to offer samples as well.

Farmers markets are staying dry this summer, however, because the law doesn’t take effect until 2016.

Another bill signed into law by Brown last year permits wine tasting at farmers markets.

Nissan LEAF Class Action Lawsuit Court Settlement Approved July 20, 2015 – Range Claims and Battery Capacity Loss

Details are coming in but Nissan has settled a class action lawsuit where Nissan was accused of misrepresenting claims of mileage range and capacity on batteries.

More details here.

According to Green Car Reports:

Nissan will no longer have the option to repair a battery pack that shows less than nine “bars” of indicated capacity on the dashboard gauge.

Instead, it will have to replace those packs with updated versions identical to those used in the 2015 Leaf, which use a newer and more heat-tolerant cell chemistry.

Nissan will also provide 90 days of free access to DC fast-charging through its EZ Charge card program.

Already offered to buyers of new Leafs, the EZ Charge card provides access to stations on the NRG eVgo, Aerovironment, and Car Charging Group networks.
