Guys & gals,
I have an Acer Aspire laptop computer that is running Windows 7 Home 64-bit edition.
I turned on my laptop a while ago and right-clicked on the Get Windows 10 icon in the system tray and clicked on check status. I got a window telling me that a copy of Windows 10 had been reserved for me. I clicked on Go To Update Site and was given a message that a copy of Windows 10 was being downloaded to my computer. (I got this message without actually requesting a download.) A short time later, a window opened titled Windows Update and I was shown a button that I could click to start the upgrade process. I decided that I didn't want to update until I had backed up everything on my hard disk, so I closed the window and went upstairs to get my WD Passport 2 GB backup disk.
When I got back, the hard drive light was on almost continuously so I assumed that the computer was busy and I wanted to let it finish whatever it was doing before trying the backup procedure. A while later, I saw that everything had calmed down and when I clicked the Start button, I was shown the update shield next to Shutdown. So I decided to shut it down and then do the backup after the restart. When I was presented with the Logon screen, I chose the Administrator's user and let it finish booting up. I then got a window that told be that my system had been successfully restored to 11/7/2014 and that none of my data files had been affected.
11/7/2014...??? I didn't request any kind of restoration to an earlier date. Is this somehow related to the Windows 10 upgrade process? If so, how should I proceed from here? Or should I just go in and find a more recent restore point and put it back where it was?
Thanks in advance.
