    Personally I would not click on anything that pops up like that. Without knowing if it is malware. Clicking on that icon, can open you up to allowing your machine to be infected.

    Just remove the KB and it will go away for now, but Microsoft is going to be very aggressive for users of Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 to upgrade when it is available.

    We're seeing lots of reports of this overnight for the Windows 7 users at seven forums.

    I just got it. Appears that Microsoft is trying to get those in line, that have been using Windows 7 & 8 to be in the head of the line, when they release the finished product or as I like to state, the Beta to the public. By that time, I may be back to using Xubuntu, if they fixed the Cups issue with the Brother Printers.

    If you read the pop-up you have to Reserve the free upgrade and then after it is released the download process will start. If you don't want Windows 10 then don't reserve it. You can also remove KBKB3035583 and you won't see the icon in the task bar. I just reserved my copy and When W10 is released it will download to my PC and notify me. Then I can install it when I choose or not at all.

    I got this too and have no problem with it. If they offered it to you for money, then you can complain about spam, but its free, so not sure what the problem is. As a registered wins user, I expect messages like this, and it will save me work later on. I do have pop ups blocked in my machine both on and off line and this is the first I have had in a long time, no problem.
