Are you sure about that? Remember MS have been downloading Windows 10 setup files to computers where that icon have not been ticked. I would not put it past MS to try and put more pressure on people to update.

i will turn GWX back on for a few days and see what happens.



the new nag have just come up and I have not clicked on anything to say I want Windows 10, so it seems this new nag will be on all Windows 7, 8 and 8.1 machines.

Oh no, that mean more computers i will have to sort out.

Your mates don't seem to have much luck with computers you sort out, perhaps leave them alone lol

I only know a couple of folk who've had running issues with W10, perhaps they are running newer kit than your chums?

If you say so. I'll put my hands up and defer to your vast experience and knowledge of installing OS's. I must have been really unlucky with the 6000+ I have installed over the last 25 years, in that almost all needed configuring and setting up after the initial installation.
You write OS's and install them? Wow! Microsoft must regard you as an invaluable resource.

6000+ installations over 25 years. That's 240 per year. Over one per working day. Plus all the configuring and setting up, plus sorting out any problems.

Truly a prodigy that we should all respect and listen to.

No one asked for your opinion. BTW. As you obviously can't read, I never, ever said I write operating systems! Sarcasm is the lowest form of wit, so they say. There are many on here who are not surprised at your stupid comments.

To be fair, if I asked you how many years you had worked as a salesman that wouldn't mean that I was a salesman.

All this business about developing OSs is yet another red herring. I doubt that anyone here has done that.

However, taking an earlier post:-
In reply to a post by rogerfp:
You really don't know what you are talking about. The release version is just the best beta version available at the time that a product has to be put out to market. Remind me again,how many years you worked for Microsoft?
and the full version of BatBoy's quote:-
In reply to a post by rogerfp:

Thought so. Another amateur.
We seem to have someone who implies superior technical and OS-writing experience.

What we appear to have (at best) is a customer support staff member at a Microsoft Partner, who spent 25 years mainly occupied with OS upgrade installations. For some reason not progressing beyond that.

Not exactly wide experience of OS and software in general design, development/writing, pre-release testing procedures.

Cocky and bad-mouthed to boot.

For approximately 2 years I was involved in helping to develop an OS. I have never said that I was involved in writing them. I don't have that sort of background or ability. But it was a good insight in how the process pans out of bringing the OS to market. BTW, I am not referring to the Insider Program as some have implied. I was working in house. Hope this clarifies my involvement.

In reply to a post by RobertoS:
It's also idiotic for anyone to claim it was fit for general release at the end of July. It was a shambles. Perhaps that needs to be the new term for something that is post-beta but has to be released due to marketing division say-so smile.

Really? Funny I installed it on many machines and didn't have any real problems. Oh and by the way Windows Server 2016 Beta 3 and 4 work quite well too.
Maybe you are doing something stupid with it...

You are making yourself look silly, and with respect some of the questions you (and some others) are posting here are proof in point that you are tinkering around with an OS you do not fully understand and that if you left it alone you may not have problems.
