I just tried to uninstall Windows Health PC Health Check and got the following message:

The installer has encountered an unexpected error installing this package.  This may indicate a problem with this package.  The error code is 2503. 



I ignored it and the uninstall continued then I got a similar message with error code 2502.

So I thought I'd try to repair Windows Health and then see if I could uninstall.  I got a message:

The feature you are trying to use is on a CD-ROM or other removable disk that is not available.

That makes no sense to me as I don't have any CD-ROMs or removable disks with this laptop.

No idea what the problem is, but Windows 11 isn't installed now.

If you are working OK Lizzie, sounds as though you are well rid of it!

I had a little dot on the update icon when I switched on my Win10 laptop today. It  informed me that my computer was ready to install Win11. I went to my update settings and clicked on.

Stay on Windows 10 for now.

I'm still on Win10.

How long will this instruction last?

Installed Windows 11 on my day to day pc. Only problem I have had so far, was with saving data in Excel.
My laptop will not accept Windows 11, so it will stay with 10.

Surely Microsoft wouldn't mess up it's own products, would it  ::) :-X

What version of Excel do you have? We have the Office 365 collection (or whatever it's called now).

I've not had any problems with Publisher 2007 & Office 2010 on Windows 11 - so far, that is.

The annoying things for me are that the right-click menu now has all the options I normally use under 'more options' so requires extra clicks & time, and switching on the wifi from the taskbar needs several more clicks.

So basically, it's not fit for purpose.  Hopefully, by the time they stop updates for Windows 10, they'll have Windows 11 sorted.
