Still, some users are having issues. We already posted how to force start the update if you have Windows 10 reserved but what about if you are still one of those who cannot reserve? The file was released back in April as KB3035583, but it is not working for everyone.

Turns out, the problem can be very complex. A Microsoft moderator already answered the question on their support forums, and we see many people in _our _forums looking for the same threads.

So here is what Microsoft is recommending if you have done all the OS updates for 7 or 8.1 and you still do not get the 'Reserve Windows 10' icon.

Razer has announced that it is now shipping laptops, specifically its Blade and Blade Pro line ups, with Windows 10 installed out of the box. With this, customers who purchase either laptop from Razer will not need to queue their new computer for the update, as it will be there out of the box. A number of other manufacturers have already started doing the same, so it is great to see that expand.

Magic Secret Agent is an entertaining Windows game that has you playing the role of Agent Stephen Karsch. His mission is to navigate the various gaming levels and find evidence that will help him send a collection of wanted criminals to the big house.

The game includes dozens of levels filled with traps and goons to avoid, as well as switches to open secret doors that will lead you to the next level. Movement is somewhat unique in that your Secret Agent moves around by magically teleporting himself around the game.
