Additional Windows 10 warning to stop update not enough

By Peter Chubb - May 26, 2016

Microsoft has finally bowed to pressure from users, although the latest attempts to appease its users does not go far enough for those looking to disable Windows 10 update notifications. Most of us know by now that the company has this constant obsession with updates, and so we have since seen the sort of tricks used by malware.

Because of this there is a growing number of people wanting to know how to remove Windows 10 update, and while Microsoft have since issued a failsafe warning before people begin to install, it’s really not gone far enough, or so Forbes reports.

Will we ever see a proper disable Windows 10 update, because it would certainly be nice just to see a simple X button that we could select and never have to worry about being forced to update?

So what is this warning we speak of? There is now an extra notification that will confirm to the user the time of the scheduled upgrade, and you will then have the chance to either cancel the upgrade or reschedule it. If you are happy to continue all you need to do is click ok, if not, then just close the notification.

We know that many of you will now be happy with this extra warning for those with Windows 7 or Windows 8, but there is still the fact that Microsoft just simply refuses to add the first and easiest step, and that’s a close button.

The problem is, if you close the standard upgrade notification, and this latest scheduling prompt, Windows 10 will still try to install itself.

While we do not profess to know the ins and outs of why Microsoft refuses to give users what they want, it is clear that they will do anything they can to reach 1 billion downloads of Windows 10.
