New Win 10 nagware ?

Recommended Posts

I'm beginning to hear from neighbors that Win10 is installing overnight without their approval. No permission. It's just doing it.

I'm beginning to hear from neighbors that Win10 is installing overnight without their approval. No permission. It's just doing it.

It's probably this:

They were/are being sneaky again by scheduling the upgrade; the only way to decline the scheduled upgrade is to click on the very small blue 'here' text in the middle of the notification.

Just closing the alert by means of the red closebox does not cancel the schedule.

 

This is considered by most to be a tactic that defines malware distributors.

 

They were supposed to have added another pop-up alert if you just close the window by using the red closebox.

 

Microsoft are doing themselves no favours with these sneaky, underhand tactics.

Also Corona make sure they have ''give me recommended updates the same way as important updates'' unticked in Windows 7 Update settings.
