I know who I sound like,(grumpy), but it's all a racket to me. They get us addicted to technology, then keep "improving" it so we spend more and more money to their pockets just to stay even. Give me the good ol' days when we could actually look someone in the eye when we communicated, or hear their voice on the phone. There, rant over.

Good article.  I really liked this:

 

 

I'm certainly not planning to upgrade when even the upgrade nag message can't seem to run without failing.

 

Then his summation:

 

 

Yep, this whole article ends in an irony: Microsoft is pushing me to upgrade my Windows 7 machine, but because the upgrade nag is breaking, I'm not going to upgrade. And I'm not upgrading my Mac because... wait for it... Microsoft software can't handle the upgrade.

 

The Government wants something to investigate why not look into M$ business practices and how they are secretly spying on folks.

No surprise
 

 

 

As part of our effort to bring Windows 10 to existing genuine Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 customers, the Windows 10 upgrade may appear as an optional update in the Windows Update (WU) control panel. This is an intuitive and trusted place people go to find Recommended and Optional updates to Windows. In the recent Windows update, this option was checked as default; this was a mistake and we are removing the check.

 

Trusted?  Really?!?

That may be where their hands are, but it definitely Isn't where their heads are...

Where on Windows 7 do we go to disable all the updates? My laptop had been turned off for several weeks, I want to turn that junk off before it happens.

Go to control panel -> system ->Windows update -> turn windows update on or off.  Switch the option block to manually install.  Check the list for the malware updates listed in the articles and uncheck them.
