    Try not to take offense to what I am going to say here.
    Why go through all of that for nothing but only to have windows renable the updates without your input ?
    Would it not be a wiser idea, to disable windows update completely for the time being ?

    All users will need to look at which updates microsoft is providing this month and choose carefully what they will want.
    Monitor the download after windows update grabs them installs, then redisable windows update until they need a hot fix ?
    Its a good guide I'll admit that but looking at it, most people wouldn't want to do all of that every single time.

    The issue is to be forewarned, hopefully only temporarily and one time (aka immediately).

    I understand that but people can be warned every which way possible and half of them don't follow through with it.

    That's called Personal Choice and they take the responsibility; sometime too late :sigh:

    Hi. You can still get W10 free, but the time is running out. I suggest getting the free upgrade and then create a image. Create a image before upgrading and a image after upgrading. That way you can easily roll back and forth between them. This is not rocket science, and will save you 100$+
    W7 will be supported for at least 3 more years; so no worries, but why not have a copy of W10 on a external drive and save a 100$. I'm not here to push W10 on anyone. I'm here to help TS members. It's your decision to make and it will not affect me either way.:p:D Here's link from TS. https://www.techspot.com/article/1300-windows-10-free-upgrade-loopholes/

    Hi. Here's my last reply on this thread hopefully. All you W10 haters create a back up image of your OS. Save your data and perform a clean install of W10. If you hate it, use your image to roll back.;)

    PS I'm not here to cause trouble. I'm here to learn, have a little fun, and pass forward what I have learned and still remember. That's who I am! If you can find any issues with the link I posted, let me know. I think W10 is well covered in that link.
