    I haven't seen this one yet, I already updated most of my machines anyways, but they are almost getting to be as bad as Apple - next thing you know they'll do what Apple did and just say if you aren't running what we want - then screw you

    IF you don't want to upgrade and want to stop having to deal with M$ shenanigans I suggest never10, While I had no problems running never10 YMMV. Link: https://www.grc.com/never10.htm
    They say technology slows down for no one. I know it outruns my wallet. I figure its because my wallet isn't light enough yet.

    I didn't know GRC had a utility out for that. I have been using GWX Control Panel from Ultimate Outsider: Using GWX Control Panel to Permanently Remove the 'Get Windows 10' Icon , and it has been solid for me, so far.
