No more Win 10 solicitations?
Just looked in Windows update and all the updates relating to the 10 upgrade have disappeared from my optional list.... Bliss!

Normal service has resumed!
That is good news. I'm still seeing this optional update:

I can't see that one going away Havoc, that's one of MS new telemetry updates, which was also pushed out to 8.1. Those are here to stay it seems. That one is still in my list, but all the others such as GWX and the full screen nag have vamoosed!

And this one https://support.microsoft.com/en-gb/kb/3123862. Although I never actually worked out what that one was for. Wasn't much in the description and no file info.

They already withdrew all but critical support from Skylake users unless they downgrade to Win 10, even though many already had Skylake systems, originally to start Fall of 2017 (after enterprises raised a ruction over it, MS backed off another year). I had been waiting for Skylake-e but, after that stunt, I'm upgrading to Haswell-e; I was afraid to even upgrade to the recently released Broadwell-e (there wasn't much to be gained from Broadwell-e anyway since there wasn't much in the way of new MOBOs; the only real gain was more CPU cores).

I just downloaded all available updates this morning. I do not see anything related to Ten in my System Tray. I still have GWX Control Panel installed however.

Second snip is after clicking on "Click to delete Windows 10 programs".
