I have a client that today(Mar 19) when I checked all the Windows 7 & 8.1 systems, autoupdate had Windows 10 to update if they clicked the "INSTALL IMPORTANT" updates, so I did uncheck the Windows 10 then updated, on reboot they again had IMPORTANT Updates available... it was the Windows 10 1151. WARNING, READ BEFORE YOU CLICK ANY UPDATES.

Hmmm..., I'm fully updated on my Win 7 Pro (perfectly legal OEM) with exceptions of these updates hidden & GWX control panel has been run quite a while ago. No nags or signs of W10 interfering on anything. I've somehow managed to keep this installation untainted by W10.

 

I do not auto update ANYTHING on this installation. Notify me please.  ;)

Well since I have very little control over what the OWNERS of such Computer do, and yes I did run GWX, and also removed the Win10 Icon from Taskbar.

 

Yet this morning when I went to do the BACKUPs, clean, defrag and check I did find that Windows 10 1151 (over 1GB) was there, and if they had clicked the "Install Important updates" it would have upgraded her Windows 8.1 Pro to Windows 10. which would have caused GROSS Problems, since her "Master Tax Program" will not run in Windows 10. 

 

And I know that the OWNER has instructed all EMPLOYEES do not UPGRADE anything. that is what she PAYS me to do Every Saturday.

and I also have the BACKUP Programs set so that every Saturday I have to enter the SERIAL so that the BACKUP Program will backup, other than that it can only RESTORE.

 

Two of the LAPTOPs were AUTO upgraded Windows 10 1156 and I had also did RESTORE back to Windows 7 on 1 and Windows 8.1 on the other.
