Re: Computer Misuse Act, 1990
This is beginning to look like an offence under Section 3 of the Computer Misuse Act, 1990.
A plan, for anyone whose applications software is dependant on Windows 7.
Send a letter via recorded delivery to MS UK's registered company address (address for serving formal legal papers), stating that you are running Windows 7 and that you require your systems to continue running Windows 7 and that you will seek a prosecution under the above act should they cause your computers to cease to run Windows 7. Better still, pay your solicitor to draft and deliver this letter.
This might make them think harder. It will certainly help you no end when you sue them for damages. They ignored the warning. They cannot claim that the damage to your systems was accidental.
