As often happens, especially in the first days of the launch of a new major update of Windows 10, some users may run into various problems that may concern both the installation, download or activation of the operating system itself, and real bugs triggered due to possible incompatibilities with drivers or applications already present in the system. In this article we give you some advice that will surely be useful in similar situations.

The most obvious and important thing to do is to use the integrated "Troubleshooting" tool of the operating system itself, which will proceed to automatically detect any anomalous situations and propose various solutions.

If you encounter problems during the download phase or during subsequent update scans, it may be necessary to disable any active VPN. If the error 0x80073712 occurs, however, it may be necessary to delete the temporary installation files and download them again from scratch.

Other problems (0x8007042B or 0x800700B7) may be caused by some third party antivirus software, so Microsoft recommends uninstalling them. Other similar errors could also be triggered by other third-party security software that prevent the update to the new version of the operating system.

Recall that Windows 10 October 2020 Update needs at least 20 GB of available space , so we recommend that you first check if your head unit meets this requirement. Obviously, we also recommend checking if all the drivers related to the various peripherals and components of our system have been updated.

In case of rather serious problems, moreover, it is possible to return to the previous version of Windows 10, waiting what drivers and / or applications are updated.
