    Actually it's not just about prepping your system for windows 10. A couple of the updates have specifically said they are for collecting data and sending back to MS.

    It talks to someone somewhere on the Internet too.

    I was playing around with my W7 Network Manager (disabled and enabled my NIC) and I had Process Explorer open.
    When I enabled my NIC, Process Explorer showed that "GWX.exe" started "talking" via my Network.

    I don't like having to use a mouse to toss the Lock Screen up, then put in my password.
    You can just press the "Enter" key.

    Not quite as bad as the space shuttle in the movie "Lifeforce".

    Anyone know how I can get the "Windows 10 Technical Preview is ready" off of my notifications center from the windows updates notifications?

    That's annoying. Reboot, Check for Updates again, right click it to try hiding again.

    I have reset the notifications center. Maybe, that will fix it.
