You'll then get a handy list of all the programs installed on your PC, which you can use to cross-reference what's still on your system when you upgrade to Windows 10.
The (estimated) 200 million users who make up the 26 per cent figure will, as of this week, be exposed to future vulnerabilities - as Microsoft says it won't be releasing any more patches for the old operating system.
As part of Microsoft's January 2020 Patch Tuesday, security updates were released for a vulnerability discovered by the NSA in the Windows CryptoAPI library Crypt32.dll.
"There were problems installing some updates, but we'll try again later", one message read. I confess, I haven't done one of these upgrades in forever, because I always opt for a "clean" installation-one that wipes your drive of all data and installs a fresh, untouched version of Windows 10 with absolutely no third-party apps whatsoever. "Troubleshooter, sfc, dism don't fix the error". The user would have no way of knowing the file was malicious, because the digital signature would appear to be from a trusted provider. "A successful exploit could also allow the attacker to conduct man-in-the-middle attacks and decrypt confidential information on user connections to the affected software".

Later that same year, he tweeted that he was thinking of taking Tesla private, prompting a temporary halt on trading and a U.S. Twitter remains smaller than rival social networks, reporting 145 million daily active users in the third quarter of 2019.
"Remote exploitation tools will likely be made quickly and widely available", it said, adding that the consequences of not patching CVE-2020-0601 could be "severe and widespread". Still, the severity of the flaw it fixes means systems that can't update are at risk of being hacked.
Yesterday (Jan. 16), Google patched its Chrome browser against the flaw.
If you thought you were unlucky when Microsoft announced the opportunity for its users running older versions of Windows to upgrade to the latest Windows 10 and you missed out on the opportunity, you can still rejoice. It comes with OS build version 17763.973.
In September of 2019 one Windows update turned everything on screen orange for users. However, there are cases where it might not-your apps might not appear, you might not be able to select the option to bring them along during the upgrade, or your upgrade might not even work unless you first remove apps that can't make the jump to Windows 10 for whatever reason. The cloud recovery option for Reset this PC isn't working and for some the update process is either taking a long time or failing with error 0x8007042b. (Other builds get individual Patch Tuesday rollups customized specially for them.) It could be that Windows Update isn't sure which build it's dealing with when it starts to apply the patch.
