No escape: Microsoft injects 'Get Windows 10' nagware into biz PCs

Geoffrey W Silver badge

The article is not entirely accurate. It failed to mention another change Microsoft has made. They have now added a proper way to disable nags and disable windows 10 updates in all versions except Home, and not just enterprise versions. Since, I think, windows 7 home cannot join a domain there is no change there at all then. In professional and ultimate editions they have now added local group policies that allow you to control the win 10 upgrade process, including, I believe, disabling it altogether using the group policy editor. Its another click bait article poking the usual crowd of angry commenters without providing a full technical account of what actually is happening. See Ars Technica for a little more information:-
