I would like to personally thank you for the increase in my income, as well as my client base, due to your lack of ethics or scruples in playing on the public's ignorance, and forcing your latest not ready for release operating system on as many people as possible, costing them loss of data, lots of down time, and probably in the millions of dollars world-wide, in costs to people like me, for repairing the damage you've done. Your heartless and soulless venture has been a boon for my business, and so many others like me. Keep up the great work!

Sincerely, Klassified.

I would like join you in this thank you ;-) Since the release into the wild of the malware known as Windows 10, I have personally reverted at least five dozen (now) computers back to Windows 7. No data loss yet, but the average cost was around $100 per computer. If one has an Asus however, there are certain windows updates that cannot be applied as they cause hardware damage.

Cheers - Dave

I despise Microsoft for the reasons you stated, plus how they force updates at times. A few months ago when it was asking me to update, I always clicked "later" until finally all options to defer it were greyed out and I had no choice to delay it any longer. It then just installed by itself. That is shady crap right there and makes me wonder what exactly are they installing on your system that they think you better have or else. There has to be a conspiracy behind it all.

I'm baffled as to how so many users have issues with Windows 10. It's by far the best operating system I've ever used without one single problem.

Some people here on ATS do not "get" sarcasm like this! I do! And being a computer nerd (work in IT) is not necessary but it does help.

S+F for this open letter to the Evil Empire.

Same. I've only installed it on two machines (I primarily run Linux), but I haven't had any issues with it.

Just don't go public, then you won't have to underhand the consumer to appease your stockholders.

Microsoft died after win7 ultimate imo.

Edit..can we send them a link to our assessments?

If you worked in my business, you'd see the damage that has been done. Count yourself lucky not to be one of those whose cost was in the thousands to retrieve lost data, as well as down time due to an unasked for upgrade.

I have run Win 10 since it was released for eval by testers. I have had little problem with it, except for some glitches, due to it being released for prime-time way too early. I see issues the average user doesn't. By far the best OS you've ever used? Glad you like it, and I'm sure that makes MS happy to hear.

The list of gigs I sent to them during testing could have filled a small book. It's a hybrid OS, and a badly implemented one at that. 10 really could have been the best OS Microsoft ever did, all they had to do was code a DESKTOP OS, but instead they gave the public an OS that doesn't know what it is. It has MPD.

I have a Mac and love it but since Mac and Windows won't behave in the sandbox I bought a Dell laptop with Windows 10. Took it out of the box last week, Windows 10 updated and my flipping hard-drive was full. So I bought a external hard drive upgraded the ram and I am going to take a hammer and smash it because it is still messed up.

I do have a old Dell with Vista Business and I love it! No issues ever. Nice thread!

don't spread it around too much, but you can roll back 10 to 7 if within the 30 day window. I have had quite a few calls on this, and am also enjoying the increase in revenue.

I haven't had an issues with win 10. It's been on my laptop since the first free offering. It's been on my desktop at least several months. My housemate is an IT specialist, he was removing maleware from both machines when I had win 7 and he did the upgrade to win 10 on both machines while doing that work. Not a problem since.

I have it set in control panel to 'always ask'. Nothing should force update when you do that. I have a message panel that tells me what I have not accepted and gives me the opportunity to, from windows updates to java updates, but none have ever forced update.

I don´t like that Win10 stuff too, but not because it maybe would be bad(i don´t think so), but because of it´s behavoiur, and microsofts behaviour.

Nothing is for free, so Win10 isn´t. And even if one changes the settings and thinks he will be secure from MS spying, does one really believe MS would really stop gathering data then? Data is the new money Win10 is payed with!

But it´s not that big problem to keep your Win7 up to date without being afraid of GWX.
Just use GWX Control Panel, the NoWin10.reg, and Aegis for Windows 7

I've been able to do that with quite a few. The problem is, on some units Task Scheduler files become corrupted, among other issues that don't become immediately apparent. Everybody should know about the rollback capability by now, I would think, but thanks for posting it, in case some don't.

ETA: For those computer savvy, I highly recommend you open the task scheduler after a rollback to windows 7 or 8. If it gives errors, you'll know the task files are corrupted. A google search will turn up a fix, rather than me expounding on it here.

Glad you brought this up. I have now had two instances of a Windows 7 update turning automatic updates back on, even if it was set to manual. I know this for a fact, because I'm the one who set those machines to manual updates. There may be more, but so far, those are the only two I'm aware of.

Were they your machines or did they belong to other people? They may have gotten a pop up asaying 'there are updates waiting' or 'it is recommended you change this setting", they could have done that without even being sure that they did.

I only use Linux but upgraded my mother's HP laptop to Win10 as she got fed up with the upgrade messages to the point where she was unable to upgrade Win7. The upgrade was uneventful apart from mouse lag which was easily resolved after a quick search (setting change). I found it odd they released Edge with only 6 add-ons.

I only update my personal Windows 7 computers a couple times a year after the updates prove to be bug-free and secure. I've had mine set to manual since day one and have never had it turned back to automatic by itself.

I have caught the update service sitting and maxing out a processor core on several occasions recently where I had to go to task manager and manually stop the service. Now I have the update service permanently stopped.
