Don't want to upgrade to Windows 10? You'll download it WHETHER YOU LIKE IT OR NOT

Re: Computer Misuse Act?

a case can be made (very easily) for saying that if they access your computer to drop off some "cached" Windows 10 updates after you have explicitly selected not to receive Windows 10 and therefore said they are not authorised to install it, then that is unauthorised access under Section 1(1).

Whether it's legally "unauthorised" probably depends on exact wording of the EULA: also I wonder if any legal types have sufficient disregard for the rights of users to write holes into the EULA that allow Microsoft to do what they want.

Sorry, stupid question.
