    Any other win 7 users getting this in their email?


    I got this in my email recently and I'm wondering just what sort of impact it will have on Windows 7 users:

    You’re receiving this email because we are updating the Microsoft Services Agreement, which applies to one or more Microsoft products or services you use.

You can also learn more about these updates on our FAQ page here. The updates to the Microsoft Services Agreement will take effect on Septe*mber 15, 20*16.

    I don't believe I've ever been to the Ten forums. Rather doubt I'll be visiting it much in the future either. Thanks
