Don't want to upgrade to Windows 10? You'll download it WHETHER YOU LIKE IT OR NOT

it's a pernicious practise

A friend of mine (very non computer literate) uses an old laptop via a 3G dongol (lives on a houseboat IIRC, no phone line, no broadband, no wifi).

Her 3G account has been effectively terminated and massive over-use charges applied to her account because of these huge downloads.

Of course she doesn't understand why.
