You can uninstall all those updates. You'll still be fighting a losing battle, but you can do it.

Doesn't matter, staying with windows 7 is like kicking Microsoft ass.

Also Windows 10 is still in beta. These black screen outages drives me crazy. It started 5 days or so ago and lasts for hours. Windows 10 is pure misery every single time they updated it yet again.

I find it odd that they are pushing win 10 so hard when it is supposed to be free. Why push something so hard when your getting zero monetary return. I don't know why but I am getting the same feeling a conman would give me trying to sale me time shares.

it is supposed to be free

Open source is free as in liberty, and usually also free as in beer.
Critics say open source is "free like a puppy"- you have to take care of it.
Windows 10 is free as in cancer.

It's not called a confidence scam because they gain your confidence, but because they make you gain theirs.

Your data is worth more than a single license and it will keep on giving.

It is a bait and switch. If you want to reinstall it after a hard disk failure you get the bill.

  • Remove telemetry updates in 7 / 8.1

  • Turn off Automatic Updates

  • Delete the Win10 files already on the computer

  • Laugh at Microsoft

There's still the big red X in the upper right-hand corner, and even if they remove that, there's the task manager - simply kill the process.

Doesn't necessarily work. I closed out of the Win10 upgrade screen when it told me my 'upgrade' was ready and it automatically installed on restart anyway.
