I have never known an upgrade or even an operating system to be put in recommended updates. I think Thrashzone is correct. Microsoft could actually install windows 10 without further prompting but I don't think they will go that far. I think they will have gone to far once they put windows 10 operating system in the windows update optional settings.

I can't really believe there is that much people wanting an easier way to upgrade to windows 10.

Does anyone know the difference between the update registry settings on windows 7 retail/oem and enterprise?

reason I ask is that the enterprise version is not subject to these updates....

An eye opener for me was way back when windows live essentials 2011 was released,
I used photo gallery and it was perfectly good simple photo viewer/ editor
One Tuesday morning it was gone and replaced with live photo gallery
Live version was a complete change and replace deal.

I've been reviewing updates/ All updates since that happened
Usually all it takes is something like that to happen
Could be a program like happened to me or in an os like a upgrade sent through the update system.

If 10 loads one day with my settings I have now I may think differently but as of now saying Malware is being delivered with no notifications is pretty far fetched
Not that you have said that I'm just saying

Up until this Windows 10 nonsense it was so easy. If you wanted a new OS you went out and bought the box to upgrade your existing OS or you bought a new computer with the new OS pre-installed. People are now paying a terrible price in order to get the new OS "for free", including loss of essential features, loss of privacy, and loss of control over alterations to their computers. The old saying that "there's no such thing as a free lunch" was never more apt in my view.

It should be noted that the full plan reported this week is that MS will imminently offer Windows 10 as an optional update, and then shortly afterwards make it a recommended update. It will therefore be automatically offered to those with updates set to automatic. However, whichever way it is offered, it won't be installed unless you accept the EULA (although it may well be downloaded, of course). It's clearly another attempt to lead people into taking the upgrade and I deplore it.

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.
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?
Yes.

Nexr year (2016) I'll wager they will download and install the required Windows 10 upgrade updates, then download the Windows OS 10 package and install that. When you log on to you computer for the first time you will accept the EULA and get Windows 10 is finishing up and decline you'll have to chase the "Are you sure" button around the screen. Microsoft will be making 10 mandatory and that makes me not like or want the OS all the more. They have already tried this once and said whoops sorry. 3 of my 4 main machines which had registry settings from 10 forums "Do Not Upgrade OS" and this was overridden. There was 10 GB + of downloads on 3 of my machines as the indicators on the hard drives had gone red for lack of space on the SSD. You get a bunch of drivers, updates and the OS files and this can be as large as 6GB on each machine.
