I have signed up for nothing, nor agreed to anything (knowingly) but I am concerned that Win 7 updates are 'prepping' me for the win 10 upgrade.  Rather than MS having my interests in mind, I've been forced to scrutinize every update that is offered so I have turned Automatic Updates off.  I caught the KB 2952664 update and have hidden it, but I am wondering if there are other such "updates" out there that will force/nag me to "upgrade"?  This is really getting scary as to the ends that MS will go!

KB3035583 is the update in charge of the "Get Windows 10" app. It's the one you need to install to reserve your copy of Windows, and it's one of its processes that will download the Windows 10 upgrade once it becomes available on July 29th. However, once downloaded, you will not be forced to upgrade. You'll be notified that the upgrade is ready but you are the one who will decide when you want to upgrade. So you can decide to download it right away, but upgrade only a week before it's been a year since the release.
