Welcome brand new commentor!

Yes the logic you express is true MS sleight of hand logic, based on the premise that because a user has Windows updates enabled they have consented to the GWX update being automatically scheduled in the first place.

If MS really were giving users a choice they would do as they do in Outlook and clearly give users a "Decline upgrade" button alongside and with equal prominence as the "Upgrade Now", "Upgrade Tonight" and "Ok" buttons.

The laugh about all this is that ALL Win10 users have consented to MS doing the equivalent of GWX to them whenever MS wish, so if MS decide to replace the current version of Win10 with a version of W95, rebranded as Win10 build 95 they have no choice but to accept it! Given the long-term support release cycle of Win10, we can expect this type of event to happen...
