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

Re. Behind the curve

Dell Dimension 2400, 2GB Ram, P4 2MB 2.6GHz. Guess what, locked BIOS.

Won't install anything from pendrive or CDR, has to be pressed original XP supplied with the machine.

Fortunately 7 Home Basic isn't going to update to 10 on my netbook as the machine won't run 8 let alone 10 and probably never will with 2GB RAM and an x32 Atom.

Still tries to download the damnable thing and now I have to manually kill windows update on every single restart or system slows down to a crawl (documented).
