It's up to you. It's not necessary to download and install it, but if you do your operating system will be upgraded. If you want to download it, i can take a look at it remotely to see why it is failing. BUT have you seen the windows 10 interface? It is totally changed from what you have now.

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
