    MS forced Win10 installs w/o user concent?? True?


    Is that true? Win7/8.1/etc. automatically installs Win 10 'update' (the OS) without the users permission when 'X' many days have passed?

    My brother woke up to Win10 (from Win 8.1) the other day and basically did a 'WTF'. Yes I know you can reverse or downgrade it, however, that is a complete bag of doo doo if true.
