    Solved Today's Windows 8 Update is just to take you to Windows 10

    Dragon Drop, do not install the update, "hide" the update. I used Brink's "Upgrade to Windows 10 Update - Enable or Disable in Windows 7 or 8.1 - Windows 10 Forum" using the "Disable" feature which removed files for all Windows 10 stuff that was on my PC. Brinks instructions for disabling is...
