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

It's an optional update which is automatically selected for download (mandatory in all but name)... unless you have notify before download chosen as your update method and unselect it before giving the OK.

As Windows 7 has no idea what a metered connection is then this brings mobile connections to a standstill and woe betide you if you're in the sticks with 2G trying to get your email. Someone with 2-3 computers and an ISP with a bandwidth cap will have to get the wallet out too.

And a sizable proportion of people with Windows 8.1 will have metered connections wrongly configured so the same will happen with them.

In fact the safest Windows OS to have is Windows 8 (not 8.1) which avoids all this bollocks.
