We had a break-in at our house last night. Yes, sometime in the dead of night the Microsoft Corporation broke into my house and installed Windows 10 on my computer! I've been getting e-mails and pop-ups for months asking me if I want to install Windows 10 and each and every time I answered with a resounding NO! But they went ahead and did it anyway. That has to be illegal. Of course I don't suppose there's any way I can prove I never gave them permission. It's really quite irritating.

That is why I had to turnoff automatic updates on our computers. I believe there is a way to rollback the changes for 30 days but no idea how to do it.

Roll back to previous OS:

I reluctantly allowed the Windows 10 install (from Win 7) a few days ago. Seems to be working okay for now.

It did it to me last night while I was watching the (lame) series finale to Castle.
Seems to be working okay – I checked all my essential programs, and got my email running again. Unpinned a lot of cruft that Windows 10 comes with to make your PC more like a stupidphone.

Strangely, I had one that I upgraded to Windows 10 from Windows 7 – months later it reverted back to Windows 7… no idea why, but can't say I'm bothered.

I always tell people that I've never heard a bad comment about Windows 10… that wasn't followed by the speaker saying they've gone back to Windows 7.
Windows 10 is certainly among the most successful Apple ad campaigns of the last couple decades.
I bet, at some point, unknowingly, you did give them permission. After all, you've clicked "Agree" to a lot of text you haven't read.
But I'm alarmed to hear that Castle had its series finale before I even got a chance to see it. Still waiting for it on Netflix. Guess that's what I get.

For an unrelated reason I turned off Windows automated updates. I am happy I did. Nothing against Windows 10 but I am gun shy of updates since my PC crashed last Christmas.

Sittin' here on an iMac. Safe as houses.
Wait, they're not going to load Windows 10 on my iMac in the middle of the night, are they?

If Boot Camp supports Windows 10, they might.

Sounds like a good lawsuit to file.
Hoping you win millions.
