    In my testing, even if you do nothing, eventually the GWX App opens a Window on screen with the accept decline options. It also shows up if you open Windows update. If you just close the Windows with the X, it will upgrade. If you take the time to decline, it won't.
    So, we do get to choose to install or to decline.
    The only argument is : are the choices evenly/equally displayed ?
    Is that what it boils down to ?

    What would happen if someone was to shutoff their computer before they get the popup or for some reason their computer restarted? The reason I'm asking is because some are saying that their computers where upgraded without their knowledge.
    I don't know, I didn't test every conceivable situation. I just used that PC like joe average would. I personally don't believe the stories that it installed by itself with no interaction from the user. If you ignore the messages it will eventually upgrade. You are warned. Depending on your Windows update settings, that could happen in the middle of the night.

    Sorry. They are not what ?
    You mean they are not evenly and equally displayed as your screenshots illustrate ?
    If yes, thank you. You have answered my question.
