Hi, and thank you for asking your question.
May I set up a quick remote session, which will allow me to connect directly to your screen and assist you with this issue?
Keep me posted.

Expert:  Bryan replied 2 years ago.
Okay, let's get started with the remote session now. Please open up the following link:
Click 'I agree', then download the remote tool when prompted. An 'Elsinore Screen Connect' file will be downloaded by your browser (in Firefox, click on the down arrow button at the top-right to view your downloads).
OPEN/RUN the file from your downloads, and I'll be connected.
If you face any issues, just reply back to me below.
Thank you.

Thank you for the remote session. I'll await further follow up from your side now. :)

The download did not work....not sure what to do next....
Expert:  Bryan replied 2 years ago.
Please accept my apologies - I had gone off for the day when you replied back to me.
Do leave me a reply when you are available next, and we will take this further. Thank you.

There is no really need..I contacted Microsoft and they suggested to download a newer version of Windows.....
Expert:  Bryan replied 2 years ago.
Well, that should absolutely NOT be necessary - IE11 is perfectly compatible with Windows 7. Did you get any error when trying to install the "System Update Readiness Tool" earlier?
Keep me posted.

It was the same error message
Expert:  Bryan replied 2 years ago.
Hmm, could you let me know what was the exact error message you received this time?
Thank you.
