    upgrade to windows 10 disappeared after refresh PC

    i have an OEM laptop running 8.1 upgraded from pre installed 8
    i have reserved windows 10 in 29 july but i had some serious problems with internet connection till then *of course not related to the reservation* so i couldn't download the update

    my laptop ran into some problems with permissions that i couldn't fix which i asked about and found out resolving it would be painful so i restored and old recovery point which is working quite smoothly
    as the restore point was before 29 july i wanted to reserve the upgrade again but there was no notification
    i tried the method mentioned here but i didn't work although it worked before restoring
    the batch file doesn't loop it just run and then disappear

    i also tried the diagnostic dialogue GW10appdiagnostic it didn't mention anything about missing updates or in compatibilities

    Windows 8.1

    I upgraded from Win 8.1 to WIN 10 and after 3 weeks of trying all sorts of things switched back to WIN 8.1 and win10 is trying over n over to reinstall, WHAT A NIGHTMARE., what I didn't like in WIN 10 was limited control you have to make changes to any settings, MR Softy ( Microsoft ) has reduced your options to controls, you do not even have a choice for up grades its forced on you at their will, heck you cant even select the day, or time for it to install. The new browser is UGGGGGG I didn't see it as quicker and when I used the IE browser things didn't no open correctly had freeze up times and extreme slowness, I am not sure that Mr Softy is sabotaging the old browser IE so you have to use the new one. Personally I would wait till 9 months down the road before a install of WIN 10. I still plan on doing a reinstall of WIN8.1 do to issues WIN10 has created. GOOD LUCK

Windows memory question - 1GB disappeared?
Hi there, I have a question that I'm not sure is a general occurrence with Windows, as opposed to just Windows 8. Nevertheless, it seems like Windows is somehow reserving/using ~ 1 GB of memory. It seems like the user is using 1GB less than the total used memory on the system. In other words,...

When I right click an app in the start screen of windows 8.1 the customize bar at the bottom of the screen does not show up. What does happen is that I get a menu when I right click with the commands on the menu. What has happened to the customise tool bar? I had it once and now it is gone.

Will Windows 8.1 be an upgrade, a refresh, on new install?
If its an upgrade, all programs still installed, I'll do it. If its a refresh probably not (yes it keeps the installed apps but that's not any help.) If its a complete reinstall, no way. Anyone know what the plan is?
