Windows 10 Tricks You Into Upgrading
Microsoft has recently changed the Windows 10 upgrade for Windows 7 and Windows 8 machines. It is being rolled out as a Recommended Update through Windows Updates, but now with a unique twist on things.
Recently, clients were getting a pop-up requesting that you upgrade to Windows 10. The catch with the pop-up is that if you click the “X” in the upper-right corner it will act as consent for the upgrade; causing Windows 10 to install. Now, however, the upgrade installation can automatically begin even if you don’t take any action!
It’s very frustrating and is tricking tons of Windows 7 and Windows 8/8.1 users into upgrading to Windows 10. Over these past few weeks we’ve received several service tickets for clients that have been tricked into upgrading and requesting us to roll this back. Please contact us today if you’d like to be proactive and prevent the upgrade in the first place. Likewise, if you’ve already been “tricked” into the upgrade and would like us to roll your system back, we can do that too.
