    GWX Control Panel - beta version for the "Reschedule or Upgrade Now" problem

    Mostly see title, but if afflicted, read the Blog of the author.

    He is requesting beta testers for those who have the "Reschedule or Update Now" (to Windows 10) problem.

    Have used GWX Control Panel on more than 20 computers so far (mostly the previous 1.3... version) that had the unwanted GWX nag icon and/or the unwanted auto-download of the Win10 upgrade files; 100% success - disabled the GWX nag icon and also disabled the auto-upgrade.

    But also suspect that the WU setting "Give me recommended updates the same way I receive important updates" needs to be unchecked.

    Tested and recommended by Woody Leonhard:

    A new version of GWX Control Panel should interrupt even the most advanced cases of forced Windows 10 upgrades

    Unwanted Win7/Win8.1 upgrades to Win10 can now be stopped
