Let me tell you the terrifying (Not really) tale of the ghost of Windows 7.
It started on a wednesday, just like this one (or a Thursday in another time zone)
A man had upgraded to the latest windows 10 and for the last week has been enjoying it for the most part.
But then update KB3081424 came one day and installed, the man restarted his computer and to his utter surprise the terrifying startup sound of windows 7 can be heard!
Thinking his computer was haunted the man allowed the update to proceed and windows 10 booted as normal.
Still to be on the safe side the man booted into his linux partition then later rebooted back to windows 10.
But to his horror (or surprise) the windows 7 startup sound played once more!
Is this mans computer possessed by the ghost of windows 7?
Shall he call in Father Lankester Merrin and Father Damien Karras to exorcise this demon?
Or is this some odd bug? (probably this one)
Beware because the truth may scare you to death! (not really, but its an odd bug to be sure)

Same here... I hear the W7 boot up sound too.
