It might be worth mentioning I also had a problem with sending emails from
Outlook; solution: run sfc /scannow as an administrator.
Will install Windows 10 using the ISO method.
Thanks to you both.

I have not had a single problem since upgrading to Win 10 Pro. By all means
though, do use the ISO method. It is faster and cleaner.

If Win 10 scares you that much, remove the "KB3035583" update and then block
it from being downloaded and installed again. I believe you need to reboot
after deleting it so it will show up as an update so you can block it. Now,
Win 10 will not be automatically installed and you won't be nagged.

Installing Win 10 in a VM is just a waste of time unless you are writing
apps or something.
