No Windows 10 Nags Here

Lucky I did a clean install of Windows 7 Professional lately.

I haven't installed any optional or recommended updates since the start of 2015 - security updates only.

Actually, I did install one or two optional/recommended updates after checking them all out thoroughly - I think it was just time zone updates or something like that. I will only be installing security updates from this point forward.

If Windows 10 still manages to sneak it's way onto my machine then it will be time for another clean install - a Windows 7/Linux Mint dual boot with Windows 7 at Service Pack 1 level only and no Internet access whatsoever. All online activities will be Mint only.

I won't even need to go online to activate 7, I have the activation files saved with Advanced Tokens Manager (doesn't work with Windows 8 or 10, btw).
