Message 94710 - Posted: 3 May 2016 | 9:02:18 UTC

Microsoft insists, tries to force me to upgrade to 10. Based on comments here I do not want it. What can I do? It reminds me every few minutes to update. Almost did it without my permission overnight, but I declined the legal stuff. So now it takes up the whole screen every few minutes.

I need your help.

Thank you

There are some Windows Updates that added the nag screen. You can uninstall/disable them, but you will have to search for a solution. Personally on Windows 7 systems now, I read the description for every update before I allow them to install to prevent this from getting in. You can then also block it from being shown, but I'm not 100% this sticks and it or similar but different ones can still appear.

There is software to help you stop the nag screens, but the key is if you do not upgrade before the current free period ends you can NOT upgrade for free. MS will charge you to do any upgrades after the current free period ends, I think that's at the end of June or July. After that you will not get anymore nag screens other than to remind you that Win7 is coming to end of its life and MS will stop supporting it, like they have all their other OS's at some point.

I followed this post on Lifehacker to get rid of the notifications.
After that I do as mackerel does and read the descriptions for each update.
I decline any that have to do with upgrading to Windows 10.

4 months ago TheDawgz installed GWX on several WIN7/8 systems owned by friends and family ... works like a charm.

... that Win7 is coming to end of its life and MS will stop supporting it, like they have all their other OS's at some point.

Microsoft doesn't plan to stop fixing security problems in Windows 7 until extended support ends.
That's January 14, 2020--five years and a day from the end of mainstream support.

I agree with using GWX.

If you're upgrading from 7 to the free 10 I hear it's a nightmare. What you really need for a clean install is a full paid retail version, not an "upgrade". W7 support doesn't end until 2020 anyway.

Thank you Dave and everyone. I think I will wait for a few years. I found with Vista that Microsoft's new programs have too many bugs.

Microsoft is so desperate for users to "upgrade" to Win 10 that I wouldn't be surprised to see a magnanimous extension to the one year deadline.

GWX is definitely the way to go.

I am running Windows 10 64 bits with no problems aside from Windows Update.
It will not let you control it in regards to the updates, so from time to time I find that it have restarted the machine, and since GPU WU's cant' run in the service mode, valuable hours are lost until I log-in again.

IF you have a pc you just leave running all the time and don't care about security you can get around that just like on other versions of Windows. Press the "Windows" and "R" key at the same time, a box will come up, in it type "control userpasswords2", NO quotes, uncheck the box that users must use a password to log in, click apply and type in the user name and password of the user you want to automatically be logged in whenever the pc starts up, click ok when done and the next time your pc restarts no username or password is needed. If you want to change it back, just type the same command again and check the box so users DO have to log in, click apply and you are back TO requiring a username and password again.

Thanks mikey,

I tried it and it works fine.

I will use the automatic logon when I am at home but I will however have to think about leaving home with Autologon ON.

I found out that Autologon.exe of Sysinternals does the same a tad more convenient so I will use it instead.

In order not to forget the state of the Autologon I used Bginfo (also from Sysinternals) to create a field on the background showing the registry key AutoAdminlogon and made a small script to activate both:
.. \Sysinternals \SysinternalsSuite\Autologon.exe
..\Sysinternals\SysinternalsSuite\Bginfo.exe

Thus every time I invoke the script to change the Autologon state it will immediately be reflected on my desktop.

Sounds like a good choice!!

For those people that do not want to go to Win10 just yet but still want to preserve their ability to do it for free, I saw this article last night:
http://www.zdnet.com/article/how-to-lock-in-your-free-windows-10-upgrade-and-keep-using-your-old-windows-version/

As usual it's got lots of if and ands and buts in it.
