    It appears that MS is getting more agressive about forcing Windows 10 on people. I just saw this Microsoft no longer lets you opt-out of a Windows 10 upgrade If you don't want Windows 10 there should be a way to opt out permanently and not have to constantly look for new update that tries to sneak Windows 10 in.

    I noticed on a couple Windows 7 computers in the house where I had 3 updates hidden to prevent updating suddenly were no longer hidden! I had to uninstall then and hide them again.

    What's going to happen to small businesses with the sneaky Windows 10 upgrades? I was at the car dealer today and they have some computers for customers to use Windows 7 and they all showed the Windows 10 upgrade Icon. I mentioned it to one person and he told me that they hadn't upgraded to windows 8.1 because of software issues. Walking around I notided some to their work stations also had the upgrade icon. This is a large dealership with several locations. I'm sure business will be pleased when they get the screen to upgrade that you can't opt out of.
