    KB2952664 just showed up again this morning. (I didn't install it yet.) Isn't this version 9 or 10? It's been issued 7-8 times since April of last year. Each one is supposed to be a fix for the previous release so I've read but how does the same KB keep showing up? Who is doing the quality control at MS? Have they farmed that to some off-shore company?

    Added:
    Makes me think MS may intentionally tank Windows 7 or make it so dysfunctional, you HAVE TO update to 10.

    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.

    Not only did KB2952664 show up again so did KB3035583.

    Also showing up is KB3021917:

    This update performs diagnostics in Windows 7 Service Pack 1 (SP1) in order to determine whether performance issues may be encountered when the latest Windows operating system is installed. Telemetry is sent back to Microsoft for those computers that participate in the Windows Customer Experience Improvement Program (CEIP). This update will help Microsoft and its partners deliver better system performance for customers who are seeking to install the latest Windows operating system.


    So now we have three to block.

    All KB3035583 did for me is start filling my event log with errors.

    So is it good to update to Win10?
    Just installed a Win 7 Home Premium on a new HDD due to some auto shutdown problem.

    Hey Just Found This On Me Cheapo W8/81 My tablet Purchased From Argos Does This Mean It Will Update To W10
    Probably yes, if you agree to it as the user will be getting free for a certain duration before they ask you to pay for the upgrade later.

    W10 hasn't been released yet. The updates are to prep systems and to test hardware prior to the actual offering.

    What is everyone's thoughts on Windows 10... If it's anything like Windows 8 I will be sticking with MacOS and Ubuntu.

    It looks like a cross between Win 7 and Win 8.x. Why not just stick with Win 7? It's supposed to be supported until 1/14/2020.
