You may have noticed a small Windows logo in the bottom right of your screen that looks like this: To upgrade Windows for free you can simply click on this icon and "reserve" your free copy by sending Microsoft your email address.Once you do this Windows will tell you to be patient and you will be alerted when you are able to install the update.Microsoft is conducting an online survey to understand your opinion of the Technet Web site.If you choose to participate, the online survey will be presented to you when you leave the Technet Web site. I had even gone into the Group Policy settings and disabled the automatic restarts but it STILL automatically restarts.How the heck did you think that this was even the SLIGHTEST bit acceptable to put in place on your professional operations system?I personally own 4 windows computers, 3 of them running windows 7 and 1 of them running windows 8 (which I've never really liked).I know that upgrading an operating system can cause problems and that is why I WILL NOT upgrade to Windows 10 on any of my main machines until our latest project is 100% complete.
Ok, that one is done, now it wants to reboot, so let it do that. Gee, this at least provides ample proof for my description of Windows as "The world's only automatically self-destroying operating system". Suddenly there are EIGHT MORE *IMPORTANT" UPDATES to be installed! I wonder what kind of computers and operating systems the people at Microsoft actually use?
You know, the ones that were designed for work computers. After the update my internet DOES NOT WORK PROPERLY NOW. I have checked with other computers as well as my tablet and EVERY single one of them has absolutely NO problems opening webpages so it definitely is not my internet connection.
So good job, you made me loose all of the webpages I had open as well as a bunch of work, and you made it so I can't even browse the internet.
When that "optional update" has finally installed, reboot one more time just to be sure, and check Windows Update again. It is simply not possible that any intelligent human being could be responsible for this monstrosity, and could actually USE it on a regular basis, and would not then either FIX it, or just go home and quietly commit suicide. Select the EIGHT IMPORTANT UPDATES, and let it download and install them.
The only other possible explanation is that the people who work at Microsoft are as brain-damaged as the operating system they produce.
