[WCCF] New Low for Microsoft: Removes the ‘X’ Button from Windows 10 Upgrade Dialog

post #1 of 204

Even after constant user complaints about the behavior of Microsoft’s GWX app, the company is still persistent on forcing Windows 7 and 8.1 users to install Windows 10 – no matter what the cost. In a recent such attempt, Redmond has introduced new changes that will make it more difficult to avoid Windows 10 forced updates on your computer.



Turns out, that was only a temporary happiness that Windows 7 and 8 users shared, because the company is again in the news, annoying users. Microsoft is making it extremely difficult to avoid automatic Windows 10 updates now, and is removing the option to cancel the update altogether. A report claims that there is no cancel option in the update dialog box anymore, as the user is presented with choices to either upgrade instantly or choose a upgrade time. As you can see in the screenshot below, there is no X button, and only two options. Reports claim that users also aren’t able to re-schedule the chosen upgrade time once they have selected a date and time to upgrade on this dialog box.

No cancel, no rescheduling – Microsoft has taken it a step further to force Windows 7/8 users into upgrading to the latest operating system

Windows 10 is crap- if they had given DX12 for Win7 I would never upgrade.

I don't see a problem with this, but I know I am the minority.. For any Mac users, you should already be used to this, as if you delay long enough on OS X updates, it will eventually force the update, right now. At least Windows gives you the option to pick a time.. And if one is so concerned with not updating, simply pick a day 10 years from now!.

The point.

You missed it.

Users do not want to update and companies should not be forcing people to upgrade through bruteforcing things. Whatever happened to making better products that will entice people to update?

XP wasn't too bad.. it wasnt until windows 7 when things started going downhill.

8.1 will be my last OS for a while. Somehow i escaped getting the forced updates from M$. Maybe it's cause im running on an activated too many times 8.1 Pro licence. tongue.gif
