    David, I've read posts on three forums from people insisting that they never authorized a Windows 10 upgrade, and yet they got one.

    Somehow, some way, MS is upgrading computers without the owners' permission.

    By George, that does leave you with some confusing choices.

    If I read you right, you did a clean install.....from your original CD Win7 non sp1?? My install is original from 2009, I need to do it..I think.
    MSDN ISO with SP1 included.

    I left my Windows 7 PC on all night after the clean install. Just had a look. It hasn't done a Windows update yet. It was set to do an auto at 3 AM. Every time I open Windows update in control panel it just says "checking for updates". Last update "never" last check for updates "never". I guess that relates to the other reported issue of Windows update for Windows 7 being broken? It's been on for over 12 hours. In the past it would have started doing auto updates in the first hour of use. I'll just have to let it run some more I guess. I probably should have manually downloaded the latest service release aka SP2, and installed it manually.

    As far as I know, for Win 7 there is only one service pack released and that is ................SP1.

    There is a convenience rollup that was just released that some are calling SP2, its not really but its as close as we'll likely get to one. I downloaded and ran it over an hour ago. It's still showing "searching for updates on this computer".
    http://catalog.update.microsoft.com/...aspx?q=3125574

    Now it just showed a "this update is not applicable to this computer" message? I downloaded the correct one so I have no idea what's up with that. This could take days the way Windows update is currently running?

    I question the whole thread(don't want to drift this off topic-apologies).
    I posted a somewhat similar thread in April which was deleted later on.I am not questioning the admins and the poster but if these types of threads aren't allowed then this also should be deleted.
    My participation in Tenforums is decreasing day by day due to this attitude
