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

Automatic Install

I was having an issue last week - my home PC (dual boot Windows 7 Pro / Mint 17) started trying to install Windows 10 - I'd removed the the GWX hotfix, hidden it, removed it again, hid it again, and then over the course of a couple of days the Windows Update log had half a dozen entries saying "Upgrade to Windows 10 Pro - Failed".

A new hotfix installed a couple of days later then stopped it happening again. Which makes me think Microsoft bodged part of the update systems....
