I am curious if anyone else woke up to find Windows 10 installed on their system without them touching a thing.
Thanks for the testing.
If anybody has a spare PC to do their own testing it would be great. A VM might work too, I just like using real hardware. I can just leave that one PC running too.
Well the only thing i can say is I certainly believe my friend when he said that because his shop was closed the weekend it happened and he was totally surprised to see it on his screen and he didn't touch anything until i arrived. It was fully installed when I looked at it. Also he would not have upgraded his laptop because his GPS program would not work with Windows 10. He depends on the laptop because he is involved in Air Search and Rescue. I sure hope you or someone else can verify here that it did happen to them lately. My friend would never attempt to install a new operating system on his own. That's why he waits on me to do it to be sure it's done properly.
Maybe someone here who got a extra system to play with can let it just stay on and connected to the internet and see what happens over several days without intervention.
Keep us posted on your results.
Folks, too many people on too many threads and forums are claiming that their computers completed the upgrade to 10 without their knowledge. MS must have found some way to get it through or at least to trick people into agreeing.
People are saying it happened, I haven't been able to replicate it as of yet. The closest I have gotten as far as it doing it in the background, was the "Welcome to Windows 10" followed by the "Here is the legal stuff" screen. I had to click Next to get the accept decline option. It did the upgrade at 11 PM and I didn't look at that PC until 6 AM the next morning. It was waiting for me to click next.
Microsoft makes blocking Windows 10 'Recommended' update near impossible
Microsoft's push to update existing Windows 7 and 8.1 users is now becoming a shove, according to a new report.
Read more: http://www.zdnet.com/article/microso...ssible-report/Microsoft has taken another step toward making the process of opting out of the automatic Windows 10 update even more convoluted and difficult, according to a new report.
I blogged just recently that Microsoft seemingly was clarifying its murky Windows 10 update process by adding an option to cancel the Windows 10 update to its dialog box prompt. Shortly after I wrote that, it came to light that Microsoft also quietly had changed the behavior of that prompt by changing the behavior of clicking on the red X -- which normally cancels an operation -- to signifying acceptance of the Windows 10 update.
But it seems the company is now going a step further and is removing the option to cancel the Windows 10 update from the dialog box prompt altogether, as reported on June 1 by The Register.
Instead of advising users they can cancel, reschedule or update immediately to Windows 10, the dialog box in the screen shot on The Register now advises users they can reschedule or start the update immediately. The Register reports that there's no more cancel option and no more Red X on the original prompt at all.
