    Jesse, click on the Action Center in the bottom right System tray. Turn off that notification using the the link as shown below, but for the Windows 10 notification listing:

    Okay. Just did that!
    What exactly did you do? What was listed for that pop-up in Action Center? Did it actually say Windows 10 or Technical Preview in the listing title? The listing title is like "Set up backup" in picture above.

    Not sure why MS can't release an all in one Windows 7 system readiness tool for those wishing to upgrade to Windows 10.

    To hard to find much easier to send out 4 so far updates to everyone than waiting for people to manually download a upgrade advisor like 7 and I believe 8 has :/
    No sneak attackware involved

    I think they are just afraid that W10 will go the same route as W8 and now they pull all the stops to get people to migrate - and a lot of the common users will do just that not knowing what they are in for. Many will think it is just another update.

    Yep if 10 loads that update the install or roll back errors could be significant
    A good test model to see just how many people have re-install media or use system images to recover the prior install,

    Since M$ has removed digital river iso's M$ can see just how many people they can offer them to pretty coincidental in timing that imho :/

    I would not be too optimistic about people's ability to roll back with their own means. Few burn the recovery medium and even fewer make images. That will be a good business opportunity for the OEMs to sell them installation DVDs. I would charge at least $50. Stupidity has to pay.

    Yeah right, there was a whole range of prices. Gateway once charged $20 for S&H and I think Dell shipped it for free. But I have also seen very high prices.

    On dell systems you can get for free re-installation disk but after warranty you will have to pay the cost of shipping. I know I got one under warranty.
