    Monkeys should disable automatic updates to avoid this


    In plain language microsoft is apparently going to force w 10 on users yet again

    It sure doesn't sound like an accident to me. I'm getting tired of this crap.[reddevil]

    They are getting more aggressive in their upgrade solicitation. Now when I open my computer a box appears and asks if I want to up-grade. It is really slowing my start up. Really pesky.

    Folks at work are talking about it on their home PC's but company issued PC's are not getting the messages so there must be a block corporate IT can put on.

    We compared my company W7 laptop with auto updates on to a non company PC and mine does not have the W10 updates the non company has the W10 updates ready to be installed.

    If your corp has their own update servers they can block it :)

    There could be other ways to block it ..

    A sys restore worked.

    It isn't I dislike W10; it doesn't work for me and as updates state install failed even Microsoft agrees.

    The more Windows advances, the worse it gets. I really dislike Win 8.1 and would be fearful of 10.

    What annoys me most, is I have to keep a list of updates to prevent, because no matter how many times I say no to upgrading. It keeps trying to sneak it past me. I just don't like the Big Brother aspects of W10. And the updates they keep pushing for w7 and w8, to make it act like w10 are aggravating.
    They just wouldn't take NO for an answer.
    As it is, I have to double check every update against the list of "bad updates" before allowing it to update.

    You don't get to be the top dog in the PC market by creating software that doesn't serve the interests of the corporate police state.
