The app now has its very own monitoring mode
GWX Control Panel is an application that was specifically designed to help Windows 7 and 8.1 users refuse the upgrade to Windows 10, as it turned out that, in some cases, no matter your settings, you might still end up with the new OS on your computer all of a sudden.
And an update released today for this little but extremely helpful tool makes it impossible for your settings to be changed and thus get Windows 10 on the PC without your consent.
Version 1.6 comes with what the developer calls a monitor mode, which basically means that GWX Control Panel can now run in the background and keep an eye on any changes that Windows 10ís files could make on your Windows 7 or 8.1 computer.
If they attempt to modify your settings, GWX Control Panel automatically blocks them, thus making sure that a Windows 7 or 8.1 install remains untouched.
