Oh and what a surprise it has been downloaded again after being removed and the settings were changed to download and install. I know it is Halloween but this is no joke and it is NOT FUNNY.

I'm seriously asking for opinions.
Not if on automatic download and install.

So, this thread is filled with Species 8472...
...who eventually stop fighting the Borg
...perhaps to retreat to another operating system.

Good question. Personally I would expect them too, I haven't used those myself.

I do check every now and then looking for this forced download but it hasn't showed up yet.

I even had it reserved for about 3 weeks after the 7/29 release, still have the GWX icon in the tray

Thinking about it though, that should be the better option in the scenario you mentioned.

So basically you can set your PC to only download updates when you want them and M$ send out KB3083710 changes your settings to allow the download and update to 10 no matter what your settings are. Registry included. When they throw the update to 10 switch this update KB3083710 allows downloading of all the updates required to upgrade to 10 and downloads and starts the update process. Then you end up like I did almost on 10 or if you were a normal user oh look I got 10.
Of course the next time it will probably have a different number.

I really hope that MS honors those registry settings. I support way to many people (elderly and non-profit offices) to do their updates manually.

In a perfect world no,
But once 10 has installed I believe the user account has been corrupted
