    Forcing Windows 10

    In the light of ms doing more and more aggressive steps to force us(who don't want it)to change to windows 10,i call on windows secrets to be more aggressive in pointing out the specific updates that would facilitate this change by obviously misleading the downloader to believe it was "innocent"important or critical download.this should be a regulat part of the last section of windows secrets paid for edition.we need this kind of help,can't fight ms alone!!!
    Windows secrets! Please pay attention to this important request!

    Many contributors here think well of GWX Control Panel. One contributor - lumpy95 - has just posted GWX control Panel app users, Be aware MS is trying to defeat it.

    Is GWX Control Panel what you are looking for or are you asking for a list of the Windows Updates to look out for, hide or uninstall?

    Do you like Windows 10?

    I do not like it. User I am.
    I do not like Windows 10.

    Would you like it here or there?

    I would not like it anywhere.
    I do not like Windows 10.
    I do not like it. User I am.

    Would you like it in your house?
    Would you like it with your mouse?

    I do not like it in my house.
    I do not like it with my mouse.
    I do not like it here or there.
    I do not like it anywhere.
    I do not like Windows 10.
    I do not like it. User I am.

    Would you like it in your box?
    Would you like it with Firefox?

    Not in my box.
    Not Firefox.
    Not in my house.
    Not with my mouse.
    I won't install it here or there.
    I won't install it anywhere.
    I really hate Windows 10.

    Would you, could you,

    I would not, could not,

    GWX said, "Good to go!"
    I tried it thrice, so here I go.
    It turned my system into a block.
    It tried to start, and then it locked.

    Black screens prevailed upon this day.
    A rollback was called upon this day.

    I will not, could not,
    Install this junk.
    I feel like Microsoft
    Installed a punk.

    They tell me that it's the latest best.
    I think they are giving me just a jest.

    My old system worked just great.
    Windows 10 is obstinate.
    If you you want to install it on my system,
    There are problems. Here I'll list'em.

    Problem drivers. Faulty Apps.
    Makes us all feel like a bunch of saps.
    Forced ads and tracking abound,
    And I'm having problems with my sound.
    Forced upgrades just bricked my book.
    I think I'll take another look.

    I would not, could not install Windows 10.
    I really hate it. User I am.

    Thank you for your response.I am definitely looking for advice(usually last section of paid Windows Secrets)pointing out the updates that are directly concerned with getting Win 10 I am trying to avoid(have Win 7 and like it that way).GWX will surely be defeated by MS sooner or later,this seems to be a [U]continuous[U]"fight"and I am not savvy enough to make out which ones I should hide.I do not even get notifications from MS that updates are available,I have to check for them periodically(including on the second Tuesdays of the month!).So I am looking for this advice as a standard feature to help especially when we get multiple updates.The individual ones I can check,but when we get over 10,it is much too difficult,time consuming.

    Thanks for the list,but this has to be temporary,because MS keeps on sending more of them every time,Don't they?And that is the problem.

    That is why we use GWX Control Panel.
