Seems some are getting it worse: Windows 10 upgrade nags become more aggressive, offer no opt-out

"Reports are circulating that some users are being presented with dialog boxes that only give them the option to start the upgrade process or reschedule it for a later date. Others are finding that the Windows Update screen is only offering them the option to begin the upgrade process, with other system updates being hidden from view."

I admit, when I was doing my manual Windows update, it took a bit to figure out how to get my updates without approving the Windows 10 install.

I also had this happen to one of my work machines. I think MS is forgetting who is buttering their bread. If business machines accidentally get upgraded, I don't think corporate will be amused.

How did you do it?
I am having this problem.

Hi Russel,
Yup, this is me right now.
I use 7 pro and Melody uses 8. I’ve intended to upgrade to 10 when we settle down at the end of the year and buy and live in a house again with a broadband connection. We’ve been full time in a motorhome since retirement and streaming update data via Verizon Jetpac is too expensive. We discovered unexplained ultra-high data usage. So, manual updates when we find a good free wifi.

My understanding is once you go with 10 you lose control over when updates are done. Soon as I turn on my Veison Jetpac it’s going to start streaming update data!

So, anyhow my 7 is several months out of date.

Regards,
Tom Charlton

I'm going by memory here, I think it's "Show all available updates" just under that big inviting window. Once in there, go to the "option" tab on the left and uncheck Windows 10. You may have to scroll down to the bottom.

Whatever you do, DON'T click the big button until you find the magic checkbox. You'll know you have it when that Windows logo goes away and it all looks normal again.

BTW, I notice you're only getting updates for Windows only. I'd suggest clicking on "Find out more." near the bottom on the screen. It will install a little better update that will do security updates on MS apps - things like MS Office, SQL, etc.

That's it. Sort of not getting your attention"show all available---" last update seemed to take forever. I had carefully unchecked the option for Win10. I was afraid the win10 update was taking place but it came out OK with no 10 update. Whew!

I just don't want the hassle of learning a new system. Win 7 is stable, does everything I need and I don't want MS intruding on my hardware with out my permission.
Maybe MS should give me a new computer, then it would be their hardware they're goin into. :>)

Best,

Auto download of Win 10 is apparently triggered by Win 7/8 update KB3035583.

And Win 10 will "brick" third-party antivirus programs.

>> I just don't want the hassle of learning a new system. <<

I second that, Ken.

Another disadvantage of 10, buying new versions of applications that can't be
transported from 7 to 10. Haven't seen anyone mention that, but it could get
to be expensive and more than just a nuisance.

I've been getting notices from Kaspersky warning me to do their upgrade before bringing Win10 aboard.

Probably Windows Malicious Software Tool. I think it does a scan as part of the install.
