I am running Windows 8, and do not have any need to install Windows 8.1
It used to ask if I wanted to update on occasion, then it started asking every 2 days... Which I found incredibly annoying that there wasn't a "don't ask me again" option.
Now.. things have gotten worse, now the only options are to say that you want to install the update, with the only choices being if you want to install now, in 1 hour, 2 hours, of 4 hours..
Today I was playing DayZ, a survival game where I try to live for as long as possible, although I've never made it to a month.. and the nag screen came back.
I was not able to tab out of the nag screen to get back into my game, I have task manager set to be always on top, but the nag screen was over it and I was not able to close it.. I couldn't even shut down and had to resort to pushing the power button to get back into my computer without installing 8.1.
How can I stop Windows 8.1 from trying to force me to install it?
EDIT: even if I power off, after a few minutes it just keeps coming back, that computer is unusable at this point. Please help!
UPDATE: I've hooked up a second monitor and set task manager to appear there, now I've found the task "windowsstorepopupbox" or something like that name to stop the nag screen. I might try to use Comodo HIPS to block this from starting..
