Windows 7: Are you serious right now?(Windows 10 forced)

Well, it hasn't been "forced" on either my Mothers or my Brother-in laws machines. I just took the precautions already described above for them.

I've got a VM sat auto installing every update available waiting in hope that MSFT will start forcing updates on people (I'd be able to retire the month after with all the traffic that would cause).

Sadly forced Windows 10 upgrades just ain't going to happen

Most here know that W-10 can't be installed without user action.

Now, some users don't pay attention what is going on with their system and might get W-10 by mistake. That to me is a possibility.
As has already been posted; their are ways to correct this mistaken W-10 install but I'm thinking many million of users don't know that information. Once they get the mistaken W-10 installation they are lost puppies.

When it comes to W-10, Microsoft is just being a over bearing salesman.
Just like a vacuum cleaner salesman at your door. Just say no and lock the door if you don't want W-10 at this time.
If you decide later you want the vacuum cleaner just open the door when the salesman comes knocking again.
I try to remember that their are a lot of people that want W-10 and they like the free vacuum cleaner.

If one likes W-10 those nags are a blessing. Those that don't want W-10 they are a pain in the backside.

The only solution to the pushy sales person in my opinion is the learn your system and know how to open and shut the door when the sales person comes knocking.

Just my opinion.
I hope it's not off subject of this thread.

No, you just think you know the answer, keep reading those gossip columns

And it`s not my opinion that Microsoft will end the free upgrade , it`s fact, your speculation that they will extend it, now that, THAT is YOUR opinion, show me some facts on that ?????

What you all who are saying the "forced upgrades" aren't happening are forgetting is the vast majority of Win 7 and Win 8.x users do not have the "computer chops" to know how to avoid having their computers seemingly automagically upgraded to Win 10 like most of us do on this forum (this includes most enterprise users since those depend on an IT department to maintain the company computers). What seems like very basic knowledge to most of us may as well be Greek or Klingon to them. If it wasn't for this and a couple of other forums, I would also have been taken in by the deceptive techniques being employed by MS to get people to switch over to Win 10. Yes, it takes an action on the user to upgrade (btw, I'm using the term "upgrade" very loosely) but the way MS has been handling this, it's extremely easy for an uninformed user to make the wrong action.

But the point is LF, Windows 10 is not forced on anyone.

A computer does nothing until it`s told to, after all it`s not a Cylon or Terminator Oh wait, they do what they`re told too

Do you want to upgrade "Yes/No" if they can't get that right they shouldn't be near a computer.

Of course, no one other that MS will know for a fact if the free offer will be extended or not but the rate and way MS has been increasing the intensity of their campaign to get people to switch over to Win 10 strongly suggests that they will extend the free offer if MS isn't satisfied with the number of people who have switched by the current deadline.

Doesn't windows 10 downloaded and start install if windows 7 or 8.x automatic updates are enabled or was that fixed? Regardless, I think Windows 10 still requires you to agree to the EULA before it even is installed.
