    i have win 10 and it's ok as long as you
    delete, uninstall all the modern apps that spy on you
    go into the privacy settings and all the other places
    and turn off everything you can...
    and block the new builds
    that add who knows what
    and put everything back the way it was...

    I did notice that it no longer informs you of the ability to roll back to the previous O.S. !! have they removed the option ?

    Hi,

    have they removed the option ?
    Looks like it.
    Not that it would have been technically possible on my machine anyway.
    I think this happened yesterday night somehow.

    Cheers,

    here are a few quotes from the windows 7 forums:
    Just to be absolutely clear, I have my media server at home on win10 pro, I think its fine right there at home where I chose to install it and I also use it for light gaming. However my main gaming pc is win 7 pro and at my work where I maintain and service over a 1000 pc's with a team of 6 IT specialists win7 pro is our only choice and the only thing we want to use. Our proprietary software is certified to work with win7 and it is incredibly inconsiderate for MS to assume that everyone and anyone might want to upgrade. We remove updates hide them, we disable upgrades through GPO regedit and the list goes on and on. The thing is every month they release more updates or system changes that actually revert the changes that our team has made it is crazy.
    and:
    "If W10 still manages to 'sneak' it's way onto this PC (and my 9 year old HP laptop which also has a clean install of W7) then I think it will be time for a W7/Linux Mint dual boot - with W7 at SP1 level only and no internet access whatsoever. I've been thinking about that more and more lately."
    that's just what i did...
    i have one computer with windows 10 on it
    this one...

    and another with windows 7 pro...
    no internet... updates off... sp1 only...
    i'll keep it as long as i can...

    if i need to get on the internet i use this one...

    Microsoft Will Start Nagging Win 7 Users to Update Their Browsers


    Support for old IE version is coming to an end


    Microsoft will pull the plug on old Internet Explorer versions in January, but with millions of users who are yet to update their browsers, the company is preparing for a more aggressive campaign that would make everyone aware of the approaching milestone.

    Starting January 12, the date when support for older Internet Explorer versions is coming to an end, Microsoft will begin nagging users to update their browsers on Windows 7 SP1 and Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1.

    An advisory published this week (first spotted by @rodtrent) and called “The new ‘End of Life’ upgrade notification for Internet Explorer” reveals that Microsoft will ship a cumulative security update on January 12 for the aforementioned two OS versions, in both 32- and 64-bit versions, in order to remind users to install the latest version of the company’s browser.

    How to disable the notification feature
    To disable the notification feature in Internet Explorer, follow these steps.

    6.In the Edit DWORD Value dialog box, enter 1 in the Value data field, and then select OK.
    7.Exit Registry Editor, and then restart the browser to enable the new key.
    NoteIf the value of the iexplore.exe registry entry is 0, or if the registry entry doesn't exist, the notification feature is enabled by default.

    I do not have Windows10 yet and I am not sure whether I need it. Is there a list of functions that Windows10 provides over Windows7. Maybe there is some gold to be found.

    Hi WHS, been a while. . .why not try it out in a VM to see if it is something you may or may not want to use. Been using it now since the Insider Program Started back in 2013, and like others I have not found all the problems (some minor) they have. Just loaded it up in boot camp on my new iMac 27" 5 K, and am very pleased. . .Good luck with whatever direction you take. . .
