    Somewhat amusing Gibson would say GWX Control Panel is too complicated. Do "inexperienced" users seek out Gibsons tools?

    Is it not more useful to be able to handle whatever Win10 scenario? Look at the info, choose the matching button. For example, you turn off the alert but have the Win10 download already on your computer. An update re-enables Win10 and then it promptly installs. Oops.
