Ok I have an HP 15 laptop new out of the box with Win 8.1 installed. As soon as I run Windows Updates it tries to download Windows 10. Even after I unticked the Optional updates for Windows 10. Do I have to hobble GWX to stop it trying to download Win 10 - I'm only on standard adsl 6Mbps
Yes, the download was being forced upon us and it has now been confirmed by MSThere would need to be more than one unconfirmed incident to claim they are forcing anything.
Microsoft pushes Windows 10 upgrade to PCs without user consent - Windows 10 Forums
Yes, I can confirm that I had Win 10 downloaded on one of my Win 8.1 machines without my consent (and I had deleted the GWX folder in Windows\System32 folder). However, install wasn't forced.
