4 posts in this topic

Tech support firms are reporting that rising numbers of small and medium-sized businesses are complaining about unwanted upgrades to Windows 10.

Microsoft's goal of getting one billion devices running Windows 10 by 2018 has seen it adopt increasingly aggressive tactics to get people to switch from earlier versions of Windows.

These methods include messages telling Windows 7 and 8 users to upgrade, which have been criticised for making it appear like there is no opt out, and plans for Windows 10 to begin automatically installing on most Windows 7 and 8.1 machines.

Most recently there have been complaints from users about upgrades to Windows 10 automatically initiating.

Pretty aggressive behavior from MS, hell-bent on getting win 10 on everyone's computers whether they want it or not. Why?

I cling to my win XP.

Windows XP doesn't try to install Windows 10!

But if you've even seen a Windows Server xxxxx, you can see there's much more misery than just what the desktop user goes through.  Active Dictatorship is a real nightmare!
