    I think the main issue is that people see the word telemetry and they instantly think "Data Mining"! That's not always the case with telemetry, it can actually be a very good and useful thing to collect feedback to improve products. It doesn't necessarily mean that MS is reading people's documents or looking at your photos.

    In my opinion, anyone who uses the Internet these days will have more data collected about them than the telemetry patches MS have pushed out to Windows 7/8.1.
    So if someone one was beating you with a stick, you wouldn't object if others joined in (even if they only used their fists)?

    MS does have a good point that getting people all patched up and with the same system files will probably make testing and future patching a lot easier, both for them and 3rd parties, so I can see their logic on that.
    As far as I'm concerned, that is simply a plausible justification to cover what they are really planning to do (just like politicians policies).

    I agree with my Ozzy mate.
    MS is just waiting to lead us into a false sense of security and then they will start slipping in crappy updates with the rollups and it will start all over again.
    Someone said it earlier on in this thread that "something just doesn't seem right!"
    MS need to in still some trust back into the Win 7 users, unlike the Australian Gov in this balls up they call the name the person to the census address we are in at the moment. (sorry still angry)

    That was exactly my thought yesterday, that the single updates will go smoothly for several months, luring users into a false sense of security, and then a single update will start the chaos!

    I don't use that machine much these days plus it can't be upgraded to 10 as the CPU is not compatible.
    Hi
    Is this the machine you're referring too Joan ?
    OS Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 32 bit/Windows 10 64bit
    CPU Intel Core 2 Duo E4600 @ 2400 MHz/Intel B820,1.7GHz
    Motherboard Foxconn 45CMX/45GMX/45CMX-K/Asus
    Hi Mike, yes the Windows 7 Ultimate one, the specs at the end are for my Asus Notebook which came with 8 I upgraded that to 8.1.1 then when 10 came out I upgraded it to 10.

    I think it was on the Asus I ran a Virtual machine doing the Insider program of 10 before it came out.

    I'll have to go down and look I'm on my Asus at the moment, I'm sure I've got Cpu installed on that machine plus I have the booklet for the board that came with the machine and the CD I think with drivers etc. for it. Back in a bit. :)

    That's OK it's an old machine, it came with Vista installed. I put 7 on after getting the retail version when they did the offer when it first came out.
