Windows 7: Microsoft silently preparing your PC for Win 10

Windows 7 Professional SP1 - x64 [Non-UEFI Boot]

As far i am concerned, i do prefer hiding those updates for Windows 7, not rejecting what MS is doing on my back but just because with my actual hardware, i won't load Windows 10. I have enough to do with all those updates and hotfixes around for 7.

Windows 10 have to be a new gen OS on a new machine with the proper hardware i choose, which might not be same kind of mounting as my actual that would become a backup computer. Gonna cost me few $$$$ sooner or later, anyway.

Hardware is only not compatible because M$ is stuck in the mobile first world adding new Unneeded hyper state crapware
Otherwise it in general works well,
But M$ doesn't care about desktops as far as I can tell otherwise M$ would do away with these new features when a battery is not needed to run it
Instant Go kill it like a rabid dog.

Why would you need to reserve your copy of windows 10 if you have a whole year to upgrade?

Looks like that's their come-on to run the Upgrade advisor.

I don't know how they're missing that a phone Lock Screen is completely redundant and idiotic on a desktop. I have submitted feedback, posted it in MVP channels, and guess we're going to have to raise more of a fuss.

Don't feel bad. I have to check my driver's license every morning to remind me who I am before I can check the obituaries to make sure I didn't die the day before.

Surprisingly enough killing the lock screen in group policy actually slows booting down not speeding it up

I suppose M$ is really looking at business environments than home to constitute a lock screen,
But simply logging out does the same thing really beside broadcasting alerts email address to anyone with access to the room

Mike I have it Enabled to not show Lock screen in Policy but still getting it since I upgraded to latest build.

I don't like having to use a mouse to toss the Lock Screen up, then put in my password. It's like a cartoon where there are a dozen doors to get through.

Very strange problem. I recently cleaned a client's HP Windows 7 Home system from a malware infection and the computer is in a rather odd state. It will run any 64-bit application, but will not run any 32-bit app. It took me about an hour to notice that there were no processes in Task Manager...
