    I don't understand at all. I did follow the step from here. Now it kept come back when I got update. I know there is one way to get rid of it. But I want 100% get rid of this s*** Window 10 and never ever come back on update!!! It is really annoying to keep see that every time I get update after I remove it and hide it.

    I have used it for some 40 machines at this point. Only trouble I had was that I usually carry it on my USB drive of wonder and a windows tablet I had to sort did not have a USB port.

    Windows 10 is not that bad.

    That's irrelevant really. Some people dislike the fact that Microsoft are trying to force an update on people that don't want it.

    Fair enough, I guess.

    That, and upgrading's not always perfect. Things go wrong, and frankly if I'm migrating I'd much rather do a fresh install than worry about something being silently broken and things failing or slowing down for no discernible reason.

    There was also that one W10 preview build that took 3-4 hours to upgrade to, and I had to reboot my machine in safe mode to stop it from trying to install every time I tried to boot. Not fun stuff.

    I'd go one step further - do the upgrade to validate the license, then do a clean install to prevent any problems popping up.
