Microsoft Now Uses Sneaky Moves To Ensure You Upgrade To Windows 10.

Microsft has made another sneaky attempt to foist Windows 10 on users. CNET reports that for some users of Windows 7 and 8, Windows 10 is scheduled to automatically update itself unless the users are savvy enough to avoid it. See an image thanks to CNET
Now based on past notifications from Microsoft, most people won’t bother to read all that and might dismiss the window only to have unintentionally started the upgrade processezgif-3826719500
Of course, the only way to avoid it is to manually click on the link in the message to reschedule or cancel it altogether, but right now, Microsoft is banking on a lot of people taking the first action.
Like I said, very sneaky move and Microsoft should understand that izzz not by force – anyone who wanted Windows 10 has probably downloaded it, and those are not downloading, don’t want to.
Anyone here seen a similar notification?
