Stopping Win 10

Well, actually no. The engines would have been put on backwards.

My youngest son is quite good with computer, unlike his Mother, and has built several PCs over the years. He recently saved up so he could update his old computer and build a new one. I can't tell you all the nice things he has on his PC, but one thing he has now that he did NOT want on it is Windows 10. He works the 2/3rd shift at his job, so his sleep schedule is somewhat irregular. He was taking a nap and when he got up - there was Windows 10 being downloaded to his computer. Since he lives alone, no one was there to monkey around with his machine. He tried everything to stop the download and nothing worked. Now he has to take his PC into a computer repair shop in the town where he lives. He is NOT happy about W10 because he had his machine set up to 'ask' permission to download or update anything before it did the procedure, and yet it happened anyway.

It's been less than a month so he should be able to roll it back. Settings > Update & security > Recovery and selecting either Go back to Windows 7 or Go back to Windows 8.1.

Mine said it could be rolled back up to 30 days too. When I did try to go back, I was greeted with the message, "Sorry, not all the files needed were saved." Thank heavens I ghost my system drive every 30 days.

I hosed the files I needed to go back but I cloned the drive before I upgraded. I won't go back on this computer though. I have too many development IDEs and compilers installed on it now.

My laptop began to fail mechanically with the hinge breaking on the screen to keyboard interface. Still worked okay. The new replacement is a nice computer that works in laptop mode or you can fold the screen back and use it as a touch-screen tablet. Of course it has Windows 10, and i think I need that system to use the touchscreen capabilities. I'm getting used to it, and have made the privacy settings acceptable. It still amazes me the default windows update settings let your PC be used as a server to relay the update like a torrent.

Yeah it is a bit ridiculous. Including the part about using your camera and mic without permission.

Quote:How do I know when the camera is on?

If your system comes with a camera light, the light will turn on when the camera is in use. If your system doesn’t have a camera light, a notification will appear letting you know when the camera turns on or off.

Assuming the spy err program doesn't block the notification...

The Sync with devices - Let your apps automatically share and sync info with wireless devices that don't explicitly pair with your PC.

Several of my trade journals/blogs are saying the MS will start charging $119 US at the end of July for Win 10 - i.e. free upgrade runs out. And starting at that time, you will stop seeing the MS virus aka Win10 Upgrade screen.

I will be updating my church laptop after Sunday as our tech guy felt it is time to update the church systems before we get charged for it. Luckily all the software we need for the sound booth also runs on Win10 as I use my Lenovo Ideapad POS as an emergency backup. My MacBook Pro is also configured for a backup system, but my counterpart doesn't like Macs.
