Microsoft now awfully pushy with Windows 10 on Win 7, 8 PCs – Reg readers hit back


Ugh. Just checked a small business PC I maintain and it's got the GWX icon in the systray (after I removed it a couple of months ago) - uninstalled the update (again) and I'm going to have to disable automatic updating entirely 'cause the users are exactly the type that'd hit update without thinking of the consequences. It also means I'm going to have to do a bit of uninstalling on some friends laptops that I thought had dodged the bullet.

I actually use Win 10 Pro on my Asus laptop and think it's ok but this cat and mouse game of Microsoft trying to forcibly install their latest and greatest (!) is getting pretty tiresome (not to mention shady) now.
