Don't click the x if you have the new win10 popup

Quote:
This morning, the unthinkable happened: My wife, an avowed PC user who long ago swore to never touch an Apple device, started shopping around for a Mac Mini. And it’s all thanks to Windows 10. Or rather, the nasty new way that Microsoft’s tricking Windows 7 and 8 users into automatically updating to Windows 10.
Quote:
If you don’t find that small link to reschedule or cancel the Windows 10 upgrade—or, say, if the pop up appears while you’re away from your computer—your system will begin the process at the scheduled time. In other words, your PC can potentially upgrade to Windows 10 without you asking it to or explicitly approving the upgrade.

Wouldn't, or Shouldn't that behoove everyone with Windows 7 to just download and install the GWX Control panel, and then go through the options to kill every option to receive Windows 10?

I just re-installed Windows 7 on my main PC, and one of the first things I did was install the GWX Control panel.
It just keeps life so much simpler and hassle free.

I've been an avid Steve Gibson fan for many years, like since I bought "Spinrite" from him, way back when.
Steve is a machine language programmer, from the old school. I did a bit of that myself, years ago, so I'm familiar with the discipline it requires.

Also from GRC.com, I've downloaded, and use on every OS setup,
unpnp.exe
DCOMbob.exe
socketlock.exe

and of course, never10.exe Used where applicable.

Always, 'Run as Administrator'.

Steve is all about plugging up security holes on Windows, and the three programs I mentioned above will do that.

Cheers Mates!
