We’ve recently noticed an increase in Windows 10 upgrades being installed automatically without the permission of the PC or laptop owner. Basically, the computer will just upgrade the computer to Windows 10 regardless of whether or not you want it (it’s pretty much forced onto end users).
This automatic upgrade tends to happen when the PC or laptop is left on overnight or left unattended for a long period of time. It seems that it’s somehow associated with the automatic updates, but we’re not completely sure why it still completely upgrades to Windows 10 without asking the end user.
Also, it doesn’t appear to matter which operating system you have, either Windows 7 and Window 8 / 8.1. It will still upgrade to Windows 10.
After The Windows 10 Upgrade
After an automatic Windows 10 upgrade, it appears that you can still “decline” the “End User License Agreement” and you’ll go back to the previous operating system. However, the computer will then have to be downgraded, which can take some time.
If you do wish to keep Windows 10 after the upgrade, do note that the free upgrade ends on July 29th, 2016. After that, the upgrade will no longer be free.
Also, if keeping Windows 10, you’ll notice that there are quite a few things that have changed from Windows 7 and Window 8 / 8.1 to Windows 10. Please do note that there are too many to mention in this particular post.
How Does Windows 10 Compare To Windows 7 and Windows 8 / 8.1?
In our opinion, Windows 10 is almost along the lines of a combination of both Windows 7 and Windows 8 / 8.1. As far as how intuitive it is, it appears to be a bit more intuitive than Windows 8 / 8.1, but not quite as much as Windows 7.
The good news is that if you’re using the Windows operating system, Windows 10 is simply the next step and you’re able to get it for free.
