No secret.
I do not want to suggest registry changes to all the people that read our posts around the world. I'm not qualified to make such suggestions.

When one starts making registry changes without the proper knowledge a computer can become a door stop.

I try to post nothing that might do harm to other peoples computers.

Are Vista, W7 and W8 malware? They download the NCSI file without explicit user consent.

Does the note shown below mean that W7 is malware? These are silent downloads and installations.

I liked the way OS upgrades were handled years ago.
Buy a new computer, get a new OS.
Don't buy a new computer, don't get a new OS.

I have Windows update set to notify me when new updates are available, but not to download automatically.
I haven't seen anything pop up on my primary OS, Win 7 either. But then I've been really careful with all the updates, researching them & avoiding any update that suggested it was related to Win 10.

So far I've been lucky & it looks like I've avoided the 10 upgrade/install patches, but I wonder when something is going to slip by or get installed, whether I want it or not. And it's going to be hard to avoid it if they start doing the cumulative updates for Win 7 like they are doing for 10 now, and you won't be able to choose individual updates. I see trouble ahead....

Yep with all of the misreads by M$'s compatibility tester I'd agree
One says compatible but the upgrade installer says not "usually a installed antivirus program/... that wasn't removed first" and leaves a perfectly good 7 install ready for re-install because it is now corrupt
Too many but to M$ I guess the failures % are not high enough to change course so it's full steam ahead with win-10 :/

Do those updates download 3 GB of files to your PC and then replace your existing OS with a completely new OS filled with spyware?

If your update settings are default yes you agreed to it.
Moving the 10 update to recommended will not change that those people have already got win-10.
