Thread: Windows 10 - automatically installing itself

    Windows 10 - automatically installing itself

    Has anyone had this problem? Just browsing the SD this morning and a windows (window) appeared saying updates for windows 10 being installed. I had not pressed anything, didnt want it (had deleted about 30 reminders to update) but couldnt stop it.
    When finished I declined the terms and conditions and asked for its removal - I know its still on the hard drive so I'm left wondering how to rid my perfectly good windows 7 of this modern curse that will eat my eyeballs ! Well its irritating. No-one else had this ?

    Hate the B////y thing. Why do they have to change it. My machine started to install it on its own when I left it running yesterday. I managed to stop it installing. Just turned the bugger off.

    All seems well at the moment and returned to normal. I am thinking of getting an Apple machine next time. Not that I know anything about IT.

    It installed itself on my Windows 7 machine after they changed the "x" box option. I tried to "rollback" to Windows 7 and the machine would not and is now dead. I am in correspondence with them shortly to use for the damage with a threat of action in the Small Claims Court. I too tried the Apple thing and didn't like it.

    Windows is not installing for OUR own good - but theirs !

    I suspect they don't want to have to pay staff to maintain and update a load of windows versions.

    It tried to automatically install on mine but I just crashed the computer and it 'reluctantly' reverted to win 7

    I guess one day I'll get caught - I will be p**ed off if it stops stuff working though !

    You just need to update your update settings to not automatically install 'recommended' updates.

    I really can't see the problem, changed to 10 when it came out, went through the options and disabled the tracking ones, loaded classic shell set it to look like W7 and never looked back.
