    Conspiracy theorists unite.

    Microsoft always said this was exactly what they were going to do. What they have got catastrophically wrong is the UI in telling people it is happening (which it does) but it is not easy to spot how to stop it from happening.

    Montiroing has next to nothing to do with the reason Microsoft want to push it. Its all about simplification to them and making it easier to maintain.

    If you are someone who does not want this to happen and are not technical enough to stop it for yourself then there has been a utility developed by a very well known security expert (Steve Gibson). https://www.grc.com/never10.htm

    LOL Imagine the outcry!

    To be honest, I'm not at all convinced in the merits of the whole "new version twice a year" mantra ... after all, I'm still running OS X Mavericks as my main system, and ubuntu 11.04 for a bit of fun ... plus a couple of other -nix flavours :thumb:

    I've still to update to W10. Think I'll keep with my W7 for the moment.
