  1. I just reviewed all my notes. Early in the game,...

    I just reviewed all my notes. Early in the game, when I cliked on "more information" re 3112343, it was the only one that mentioned anything about W 10, so I hid it. Now I'm wondering about...
  2. Thank you for pinpointing that particular update....

    Thank you for pinpointing that particular update. I patiently downloaded each update, hiding this one that you identify. Thank goodness the "not genuine" notice never appeared again. It takes time...
  3. I guess that will have to be my next step. I'm...

    I guess that will have to be my next step. I'm sure you know how people feel about Big Brother prying, I mean MS.
  4. I did all those things jwoods and Sudo have been...

    I did all those things jwoods and Sudo have been so kind to suggest and left the computer to download what I didn't hide. It seemed that one, 3112343 especially, was related to W 10. I read all the...
  5. 3112343 is on the list, but I am having a...

    3112343 is on the list, but I am having a terrible time! I try to download one update at a time, but the indicator goes on and on and never stops. However they show as downloaded, all of them,...

    I certainly will. Right after the system restore the whole group of updates, 18! appeared again. Obviously I closed the window and will make a list of them when I have time, and research each one. ...
  7. You're a genius to suggest system restore, thank...

    You're a genius to suggest system restore, thank you! I got rid of the not genuine message. Should have learned my lesson about updates with all the warnings about forced W 10 downloads. I'm sure...
  8. Restore point is an excellent idea and then...

    Restore point is an excellent idea and then installing one update at a time. I'm so rattled by this that I didn't think of that possibility.
  9. I changed it from manual to automatic; it said...

    I changed it from manual to automatic; it said "started". I'll have to run that tool again to see about your OEM question, and license type. I'll also check the link in your last message. Thanks...
  10. Thanks so much! I might try that.

    Thanks so much! I might try that.
  11. It doesn't say genuine anywhere. I've gotten the...

    It doesn't say genuine anywhere. I've gotten the updates all the time I've had the computer, a year or two, so I hope they'll continue.
  12. I ran the Tool you referenced. It says...

    I ran the Tool you referenced. It says "Validation Code: 0". It shows part of the "product key" and what it shows is the same as the last part of the "CD key" on magic jelly bean. Magic jelly bean...

    I'll try that later. I think I'm getting in over my head!
  14. Yes, that's what I used.

    Yes, that's what I used.
  15. The command wasn't recognized. Just tried copy...

    The command wasn't recognized. Just tried copy and paste and it said the same thing. Thanks again.
  16. I think you're right! I tried the command prompt...

    I think you're right! I tried the command prompt and it said that it's not recognized. You're all very kind to give me these tips. I'll try Belarc tomorrow; have used it before on another machine....
  17. I'm quite sure the machine was upgraded to 7...

    I'm quite sure the machine was upgraded to 7 before I bought it, not original, and there's no sticker. I guess I can just live with that "not genuine" note on the screen if it doesn't cause problems...
  18. I can try that tomorrow, Sudo. I'm running out...

    I can try that tomorrow, Sudo. I'm running out of time today and it's sounds like I really need to take my time to do that process. BTW, I ran the "magic jelly bean" a while back, to get the key...
  19. I guess I don't know how to do that, Joe. Bought...

    I guess I don't know how to do that, Joe. Bought the computer used with this version of 7 installed, and have just updated it since then. I get the 7 updates, so I thought MS could see that it's 7....
  20. I don't think there's anything to activate,...

    I don't think there's anything to activate, because MS wouldn't have put W 10 on my computer. Is that what you mean, activate W 10? Thanks for the thought.
  21. Updates today on W 7 and now there is a message showing.......

    After the updates today, 17 of them, my computer (W 7 Enterprise) has a little notice at the bottom right corner of the screen "Windows 7, Build 7601, This copy of Windows is not genuine", which is...

    I'm glad to see the subject become current again, b/c I just read about this in the recent newsletter. This is a question from an intermediate user! I downloaded the file from the link in the...

    Fantastic idea! I just did this with Chrome settings, not just email, since the font is too small on everything. Had to click on settings and search with the word "font", because specific terms in...

    Glad I checked this forum today! I had a gut feeling that I should do so, after getting the update notice (I usually go ahead and download them). If this is a common problem it sounds as though we...

    I used the ShieldsUp tests, several of them, and passed them all fortunately. It's a fascinating tool, thanks.
