    If people weren't bothered by it then i suppose it wouldn't matter but many are bothered by it in a big way and for very good reason.

    Now if MS was respectful of peoples wishes (they are not), and accepted the fact that not everyone likes their new OS we wouldn't have this issue , they would realize that many like their Win 10 and many don't , thats life , thats the way life is .

    Either their stupid or they just don't give a damn about peoples wishes and will do their own thing and force feed Win 10 to everybody regardless of if they want Win 10 or not , the latter is more likely or it could be a mix of both.

    Lets say you want to check out a new car at a dealership and you decided against a model because it wasn't what you really expected after testing it , how would you feel if the salesman called you every week for the next year saying buy it , buy it , buy it .

    Would you say "yeah", i guess i have to buy it because they won't leave me alone or tell the salesman "i said no" what do you not understand about the word "no" .

    Maybe that will answer the question as to if it matters that much .

    Personally I think they should just put a link in Windows Update, one can hide until they decide to click it, to the Media Creation Tool, and offer two choices, 1. Experienced User- who'll get the .iso, and 2. Inexperienced User- who'll get it loaded on the system to Downloads with a desktop icon to double click(like any other software install). This way users with data caps won't have anything eating their bandwidth in the background, and they will be able to download when they are sure they have enough left.

    To you Lee clearly not, but to me and a few others then it's obvious it does, It's not Windows 10 most are against but the way Microsoft is and has already intruded on their systems to promote something they do not want. Microsoft could easily and simply put a stop to this by releasing a update that replaced the pop up with an option to either

    1) Update to Windows 10
    2) Remind me in XXXXX (user fills a choice in)
    3) I do not want windows 10, now or ever please stop nagging me, and delete all GWX files and updates on my computer, and set it to never ask me again or ever download any future GWX updates no matter what my update settings are.

    Users should be able to to leave automatic updates on with confidence that Microsoft wont download multi gigabytes of a O.S. they do not want... simple.

    That idea Cliff just makes too much sense, and I think it a darn good way!! So that means MS would never do that.

    Mike they have done it before. On Win7 I believe, if I'm not mistaken, for Bing Desktop, Bing Bar, and Skype Desktop.

    I repeatedly hid the Bing update in Windows 7 and it was always unhidden again the next time I manually ran Windows update.

    I didn't have that problem... I installed them right away. The Bing Desktop is now part of Win8.1 and Win10(integrated in windows search and Cortana) and Bing Bar isn't needed because there are MSN Universal Apps doing it's job now.
