    depends whether you want to auto update to w 10 when released
    Do you have a link showing if this update is installed it will AUTO update to Win 10 ?

    Or, does having this update installed allow you to be notified of a possible/free update to W 10 ?
    Or, does it check if a PC is able to run Win 10 ?
    Or, ... ???
    Exactly. Finally, a voice of reason.

    Perhaps my evaluation is skewed by VBox limitations and an early release but I worked with 10 for a few days and determined it is much like 8.1 with some menu changes. I don't recall exact details because 10 simply didn't appeal to me and forgot most it; However, it's like some of the menus didn't make sense. They'll include items that have nothing to do with the other items. Almost as though MS worked on one menu at a time and drew items out of box and stuck them there. It seems hard to navigate for more detail options and features. And I was especially annoyed at having to sign in every time it came up. So much so, I forgot my password. Just as well, I'm done with it.

    Lady,
    They can't legally do that in the U.S. even though they would love to. They also need to be-careful with the updates on how they do the notifications for windows 10, it could possibly violate some laws if there is no way to disable the notification if the update is installed.

    I paid for windows 7 computer, that what I wanted. I didn't pay for a windows 10 computer. I don't want one.

    LOL! I was mostly joking there. I know they possibly can't legally do it but when has that ever stopped big corporations (and governments) from doing something illegal to further their bottom line?

    I knew that but I am not brave enough to say it.

    If Microsoft stopped me from using windows 7 operating system, I might (Can't say I would) take them to small claims court for the cost of my computer plus court cost. Even though I use Linux as well, there are windows programs (Some Microsoft, some third party) I want to keep using. Plus as I said above, I bought a windows 7 computer not a windows 10 computer. Very simple way not to have windows 10, don't agree to the windows 10 EULA.

    What I would most likely do,
    Is disable windows update and never update or wait a year when windows 10 is no longer free. Those programs I use, work off-line. So, I could use my Linux system for browsing.

    I would not worry too much. Although I deleted this snooper also from my main system, I would not expect MS to do stupid things. An automatic update to W10 which the user cannot stop is not going to happen.

    Well these so called "Recommended" updates Microsoft puts out there usually cause more problems than they are supposed to do

    As been posted recommended updates often show up in the Important category because of windows update settings,
    If not changed
    Carwiz post a great example of that and many others in the past have also proven Recommended updates can be quite destructive to a system
    A few font updates that were also recommended caused a lot of stress for some users without system images to fall back on.

    So as far as auto updating to win-10 :/
    All depends on update settings I'm sure a popup will want someone to confirm much like Malicious software removal tool but none the less these updates by default download first then ask for permission later to install

    I don't know about that. What about Vista and Win 8.0? Nadella has already said some stupid things (saying something is just a step behind doing something), such as telling women they don't need to ask for a raise, just trust the system. He's as bad as Ballsmore (yes, I know how Ballmer spells it), just not as "theatrical".

    They could force an windows 10 to be download but couldn't be installed without having the person agree to the EULA. If the person doesn't agree to the EULA it won't install.
