    This is my list of updates I have compiled that I have never added to my Windows 7 install on my Samsung that I did not want to upgrade to 10, I have never had an issue with that install.

    Once again, not all of them deal with Windows 10, you can look each one up yourself if you want.

    This is what I've done. Even so, if I reboot it still wants to install 10. The two that say "take care", I didn't uninstall. The ones exclusive to 7, I ignored.

    I guess I'm stuck. After unregistering, uninstalling updates and running scripts, 10 still wants to install. I just got a popup saying it was going to install in 59 minutes. I pushed it back a couple more days. Bill can kiss my a**.

    I'm beginning to think that Linux is the way to go.
