Also, read what each and every update does, you should be doing that already, and you do not need every update MS throws at you.
Actually it is being forced. article from 7 hours ago, Microsoft upgraded users to Windows 10 without their OK...

The problem is coming from users not paying attention and installing the upgrade to Windows 10 update by mistake since it's selected by default.

You can't claim users not paying attention as Microsoft forcing you to upgrade. That's just a bunch of media hype trying to get headlines, views, and ratings.

...and you have the option to not install in Windows Update, or just to disable it.

Are you serious right now?(Windows 10 forced)

If one did upgrade to Windows 10 by mistake, they can use the go back to previous Windows feature in Windows 10 to undo it.
