    And for most of us there should be little urgency at this point. Sure, if we have a non-critical PC, update it early. But for the rest of us, critical PC's should not be rushed into 10.
  2. I'm not worried about apps. Drivers for HP...

    I'm not worried about apps. Drivers for HP laptops though do concern me, since they are sometimes only updated through HP, and HP doesn't seem to want to bother, hence some are really old.

    For some reason I had it in my mind that Windows Backup And Restore required Pro; clearly not the case now that I've looked at it. And generally it is easy to use - though on my Pro system I had...

    I've been running Win 10 in Virtual Box since it was available and it seems smooth. More importantly, the update process also seems a lot smoother now then it was early on. I don't have any...

    I do need to come up with an off site or otherwise safe extra backup in addition to the external backup drives. Good point. there.

    Let me try to fill out the context a bit. Assuming that I stick...

    I have a 'tower' PC in a 'computer room' that can do video and other heavy work but is also my main file server. I have some laptops scattered around the house and they often store files on the...
  7. Windows Backup, Restore - WIn 7 to Win 10 (Pro) - being ready, keeping it smooth

    My main PC (file server and more) runs Win 7 Pro. I do Windows Backup to it, some full images, other backups as well. I'd wanted to upgrade at least the backup hardware and bought a WD external...

    Nicely said!

    In the meantime, I can't buy a viable Win 7 laptop - thanks Microsoft!

    I had tried Soluto; it made a mess of every system I put it on. Huge effort to clean up.

    For now, I'll leave things alone on most of the PC's in the house and see if anyone complains!

    I do wonder if MS might have know, even meant for IE11 not to play well with Java, hoping people weren't using it so much anymore.

    I'm looking forward to what you learn from MS.

    I am disappointed that they didn't really document how Java handling changed with IE11, at least as far as I can tell. That you need admin rights to...

    So got into pingtest.net and it told me I don't have Java installed even though I tested on java.com and it said I had it. So it gets stranger yet!

    I still want to see if we can get some of the...

    From appwiz.cpl, I found that I did not have Java 64 bit installed, so that was fairly easy to deal with. Given that the 64 bit installer is 'standalone', it seems free of the cr-pware that the...

    Do we actually know that unaltered IE11 64 bit will actually say that is such in the About?

    I thought I'd installed Java 64 bit but at this point I'm just not sure anymore.

    You have a valid point - lots of sites use one or the other, and it's not all that clear to users which.

    Hi,

    I do use sites, whether corporate job sites and others that require Java.

    I tried every way I could think of for opening IE11; I see only Protected Mode, not Enhanced Protected Mode. It...

    I updated IE on one Win 7 system to 11 a few weeks ago, and recently noticed that Java was not working. I've done some more research and had some odd findings on that and related issues that are...

    I sometimes use Canon software but it's overkill for my needs. And even if it worked, I still need to fix the Explorer.exe problem since it's not just about the camera image downloads.
