    Unwanted Windows 10 Upgrade - I Thought We Were Done With This

    I just had a call from a client who awoke in the middle of the night to see mysterious activity on his computer. In the morning, VOILA!, he had been "upgraded" to Windows 10! This at the end of September, not July. WTF? Anybody else encountered this?
