Well, here we go ... again. I had 2 "Important Security" updates today:
1) "Compatibility update for upgrading Windows 7 - This update helps Microsoft make improvements to the current operating system in order to ease the upgrade experience to the latest version of Windows."
2) "Update installs Get Windows 10 app in Windows 8.1 and Windows 7 SP1 - This update installs the Get Windows 10 app, which helps users understand their Windows 10 upgrade options and device readiness. For more information about Windows 10, see Windows 10."
"This update applies to Windows 8.1 or Windows 7 Service Pack 1 (SP1) and Internet Explorer 11 (IE11). Before you install this update, check out the Prerequisites section."
Other than deceiving us with the overall description "Important Security" updates, it's obvious that these are really Win 10 'preppers' . I also still have the last week's "optional" updates that were discussed at http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/587305/new-optional-updates-on-82115/ regarding Telephony Tracking (I voted no). They remain uninstalled.
Back to today's deception : It is apparent that MS will go to 'no ends' to force Win 10 down our throats. IMO we should be offered an 'update' that will opt-out of the nonsense. Something that tells them to BACK OFF!
