Yeah, it's widespread and to be expected if you have certain Windows Updates installed.

I also have Windows 8.1 and it so far hasn't appeared on that, I don't really like 10 as I've ran it in a virtual machine, I much prefer 7.

Nobody will force you to upgrade, it's just the most efficient way of letting you know you can have a free upgrade to the latest version of Windows if you would like.

I'm well aware of that but a lot of people won't be and they will upgrade to a O/S that is not in my opinion as good as 7 or 8.1 for that matter.
