      Every time my hi spec laptops got to this point in time I would get ready to do a format and clean install m8 … something has gone awry in the system and sounds like you can’t nail it to the wall. This is when I start saving alllll my treasure troves onto 128GB usb sticks per topic etc and you’ll be right back to what I call: “Click-Bang” land once again, enjoying the specs you paid for years ago – hope this helps ; >)

      Can you go to a pals place in the city or as a bare minimum…somewhere on broadband unlimited? I used to do this when I was on dial-up modems (!) Shoot into town download all my apps & stuff then head home with the hard copies ready to rock on all my laptops – I reckon it’s your inet connection more than anything else. On dialup, 56k was impossible if it rained hard in the area and the ground got soaked, weather & ping were always our issues, cheers ; >)

      Winaero Tweaker has a setting that disables UAC mode …quite a handy dandy tool for disabling many W10 settings in fact team …

      Sometimes this “Windows Teredo Tunneling Adapter” prompt can appear out of the blue when a new app has been installed? My prompt came after installing a SONY Camera, and it was in the settings that I had to disable the “Network” configs somewhere, But if you know what your prompt is there for, maybe the uninstall\reboot can do the trick; cheers.

      Now you have had a cleanup; if the whirring noise returns early then it will more than likely be your Hard Drive telling you to backup your data and replace asap ( one of my laptops has just undergone surgery in this dept after lots of whirring audio this week). A usb airline is a handy dandy tool to keep around for regular blow outs around the venting areas in future team – amazing how fast dust gathers ; >)

      I think I have found my platform when my W7 Ultimate 64bit EOL arrives … LINUX MINT is a pretty d*** cool looking platform that could help me “move into the Linux world” a d*** sight easier than I initially thought. What an absolute gem of a platform for any newbie to get started on, with tonnes of support, forums, tutorials – and it is all free too\open source. That’s my 10 cents toward what to do when W7 eols, cheers team ; >)

      I have an old HP Laptop Compaq Presario CQ61. I put SSD drive in before W7 Ultmate 64bit upgrade to 1903. If anything, I am absolutely amazed that the speed has definitely increased cpu speed and processing power for me. I just have not been able to update any further since I upgraded to W10 Pro 64bit. Everytime I go to updates there is a blank page with just dots scrolling across the top of page??? everything is enabled but I just cannot update AT ALL? Yet; everything functions fantastically on & offline for me? So my version that does not update? 1903_18362.295 W10 Pro. I hope someone can tell me I’m not alone & the next update should be seamless integration …(yeah Right; >) Cheers team.

      Maybe if you installed the HP Assistant, it will show you all the latest & greatest for your system (primarily all the HP software) will be listed for you if you wanted to check it’s status\bogus via the assistant app? You can always uninstall it as soon as you know where you’re at with your HP gear – pretty much what I do to cross-reference my HP gear, that way my belief is 100% using their tools, cheers ; >)

      As Alex said, you can use the media creation tool to download the ISO, that’s probably your best bet if WU is not working.

      Yes I can also confirm 1903 has been a seamless integration from day two … because on day one I forgot to disable “Winaero” which absolutely would not allow WU to update the build for 1903 (Duh!). I’m impressed with this OS, my old Laptop has also increased with energy and vim and also loved the 1903 W10 Pro x64 Bit upgrade on an HP CQ61 with 4GB RAM only. So this tells me that my other two later model Laptops will handle their upgrades very well when EOL comes around (never thought I’d say that; living on W7 Ultimate x64 Bit from day one). I’ll bet many others will also be impressed considering W10s’ beginings!!!, however, in saying this; none of my past several years would have been as great and enjoyable as they have been without the endless dedicated support of this here website guiding anyone who cares to where ever they need to go – !!!! BIG UPS TEAM WOODY!!!! Thank you for being an awesome “Light In The Dark” to someone who knew absolutely nada until google pointed me in your direction when i called for help (!) So many clever and empathetic people on this website; cheers all ; >)

      KB4474419 is already installed on my laptop yet here it is in another package being offered to me again? Logic says to run with them both “whenever we get to Defcon 4 +”… System is stable with no glitches or conflicts to date.

      KB4512506 is not installed on my Crucial 250 SSD Drive,W7 Ultimate 64bit laptop (F-Secure AntiVirus) but: I found I have KB4474419 (The fix for kb4512506) installed; I cannot recall how this is so other than to say I may have spotted the advice on here earlier and just rolled with it at the time? The system is fine with no glitches that are noticeable at this point. hope this helps team, cheers all ; >)

      Exactly the same for one of my 3 LAPTOPS – W10 Pro_build: 18362_19h1_Release:190318.1202. My only error with the 1st 1903 update was that I forgot to disable Winaero for WUpdate, so it crashed on reboot because of my faux pas! So I disabled-repeated install to succeed, I must say folks; this is a stable build from the 1st days of W10’s arrival; what a nightmare that was. this version is just humming along without issues (touch Woody) thank you for all your work team, never thought i’d upgrade from W7 Ultimate 64bit. I have one more laptop to upgrade (my bizzo one), so until I save all my data near EOL – then finally move over to W10. If things turn to custard later…guess it’s gunna be Linux (!)

      Yes. We have 2003 office on W10 Pro-1903. Have no issues with EOL support. Life is good on that laptop.

      My wife is having   no issues with W10 Pro 1803 (!) She’s had it for the past week now and surfs fine with no conflicts etc. I let her have the update as we we are thinking of upgrading her laptop & thought [edited], lets see what it does for future reference anyway & if she blows; then we will upgrade – simple. Im still on W7 Ultimate  64bit 8GB RAM on HP Elitebook 8570P. Now I’m keen to see how mum levels out on her 1803 version … (Hmmm he says…EOL Jan 2020 …)
