Katie, it was definitely a joke. I should know by now some don't get my sense of humor. I thought the tongue out meant being sarcastic but guess not.

If you don't have the tray icon go to here:

https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows10

click the button for 32 bit or 64 bit, depending on what your system is.

Re: Win10 Download HughesNet Relief

I plan on doing the download in a couple of months on my HN9000.  I don't want to do it right away.  Will there be relief for it then or do we have to do it right away?  The free download is for a year so I figured i'd wait for some of the bugs to get worked out.

Denise, most of the bugs are actually ironed out, there are still a few minor annoyances, but those are more annoyances for power users that play with deeper components of the OS than an average user will.  The update, if it finds any software on your system that isn't compatible with it, will inform you before you continue... Most Antivirus programs are not compatible, and you will have to wait on your favorite to catch up, but Win10 does have antivirus built in.

There are always "hitches" in computerdom.

There is the following notice at the bottom of my linked page:


If you should find any issues with an approved product which appear to be related to Windows 10 compatibility, please send us an e-mail describing the problem in detail. We will then notify the respective vendors and recheck


I would suggest passing on any issues that pop up so they can be passed to the software vendors.

I had to reinstall malwarebytes after the upgrade to win 10 and is working great now so you might give that a try first Bill

Hi Denise,

If you've already reserved the upgrade, it has already been downloaded to your computer. It's your decision to install now or wait; please see this initial reaction from one of our techs about the upgrade: https://community.myhughesnet.com/hughesnet/topics/a-successful-win-10-download-experience

I also just found this interesting article about Windows pushing updates prior to Win 10 launch day: http://www.forbes.com/sites/gordonkelly/2015/07/28/windows-10-automatic-download/

If you have a Gen 4 plan on your HN9000, we have temporarily increased your data allowance to handle the upgrade.

Hope that helps.

Thanks,
Liz

Wow, very generous!

I should get onboard the Windows 10 train...but my Windows machines are heavily encumbered with all my teaching/development software, and with the semester ramping up soon, I don't have the time to work around incompatibilities and bugs. Smiley Sad
