Windows 7: It's time for Microsoft to fix the Windows 7 update slowdowns

I'm amazed at the patience of people here, who tie up their computer for days trying to update Windows. Good God, get Linux and stop worrying about it. If MS decides to fix this mess, you can come back. and you can use W7 safely offline for specific programs if you like.

It's not that simple. Linux doesn't offer as many things as windows 7 does.

Indeed Linux all I found sort of better was editing and burning music
Otherwise it was just something to mess with
Updating wise it was just more leap of faith like windows

Just entering a password was maddening enough
Super user my ass

Then dual-boot or use a virtual system. You don't have to play this insulting game that MS has decided to foist upon us. You do have options, and you will have control of your computer again.

I exercised my option to stop updating Windows. I just make an image each day that takes 7 minutes rather then waste hours on updates I probably don't need any way.

Can't find Thread

Somewhere I seen a discussion on WUPD. I thought I might try it. Downloaded and installed and went for update list. The most recent file in the list I found were from 3/15/2015. I don't think that is gonna work.

When they stop offering free Windows 10 upgrades I wonder if they will actually release a fix to remove all Windows 10 upgrade related updates?

Doubtful the GWX will just redirect to the M$ store to purchase
Only question will win-10 download and sort of install before or after purchase
