Some computers are "finally" getting the update. If you "seek" out the update you might get it.

If you want to manually update the computer download the current 18.09 Windows 10 ISO.

You can mount the ISO from within Windows 10 and then click the EXE to start the upgrade.

You can also extract the ISO and then run the EXE to start the upgrade.

Needless to say... HAVE A CURRENT BACKUP.

I assume you were using web browser to check your mail and not a dedicated e-mail client.

While surfing for a deal on a MacBook Air for a friend I got this notice at the bottom of the web page using Windows 10/Internet Explorer. I then pasted the link into Firefox running in a virtual machine running Ubuntu 18.04.1. No popup occurred...

I assume you have recovered all the files from his son.

I would make a complete backup of the drive before working on it. You always want to have a point to return to.

I can only "assume" you will be able to create a new user/password. If you do a clean install then the answer is yes. Otherwise I'm not sure.

If the computer previously had Windows 10 then it will be automatically activated.

Did you find the Windows 10 USB install drive I created for you? It will be time to create a new one since Windows 10 will have a new update in October.

A safe way to begin would be:

1) Try to get rid of it by going to search and typing Windows Defender Security Center and opening it. Click Virus and do a scan.

2) Download the latest Malicious Software Removal Tool and run it.

If all else fails restore a previous system backup

How to create a bootable USB drive for Windows 10

Rufus - Create bootable USB drives the easy way

I have been looking for the cost of 1 TB SSD's to drop. I have been using 1 TB Toshiba spinning HDD's for many years for off-site backup. They don't get much use so I didn't need to go with high-quality Samsung SSD. The spinning HDD's were getting painfully slow when you are use to SSD's.

I was looking at:
Inland 1TB 3D NAND SATA III 6Gb/s 2.5" Internal Solid State Drive  from MicroCenter for $159.99.

Until this deal showed up on the Amazon Prime Day 2018:
SanDisk SSD PLUS 1TB Solid State Drive - SDSSDA-1T00-G26 from Amazon for $149.99.
It's interesting to note that these SanDisk SSD's were first available on Amazon on June 11, 2018.

So I pulled the trigger and ordered 2. Now my off-site backups should take a fraction of time.

UPDATE: I had previously checked B&H and they were priced higher than Amazon. They now have dropped the price to match Amazon but without having to pay the sales tax.

After the projector failure at the last meeting, the Board of Directors has decided to purchase a new projector. The old projector had lasted 11 years. Independently, Ralph and Alan came up with the same suggested Optoma projector for the club to purchase.

The new club projector is a Optoma HD143X 1080p 3000 Lumens Projector.
