I'm having a hard time understanding the concerns from Windows 7 and 8 users about upgrading to Windows 10 (OK, there are some horror stories about the upgrade going bad, but that's always there to some degree, most people have a problem free experience upgrading), especially concerning privacy - I mean, the same corporation is behind the software, the corporation that, along with its tactics should be really well known to anyone by now, even the most average user, but *now* it's a problem that it contacts home, does automatic upgrades etc.? I actually welcome automatic upgrades for the average users, and the more advanced users can (should?) use more controllable systems if they want more control. I mean, isn't it laughable that advanced MS Windows users complain about the lack of control of their systems? :)

Thank you KrunchTime, I have successfully removed the spy shit from my win7 installation, used this link.

@ domicius My opinion - The problem is not the auto-update itself it's the shit it does install without warning

I do hate the fact that I have to have a win installation, but to be able to update my blue tooth devices, among them my Sena comunication set for motorcykles.
