About six months ago I allowed my computer to load win 10, I then rolled it back to 7, but I found when you do the rollback they leave the phone home bit still clinging to 7.
I had to re-install 7 then block the popup to get rid of the phone home bit.
The constant background communication to Microsoft may have be benign, but I don't need that, not that I'm doing anything that needs to be hidden, but I'm just an old soldier who likes his freedom.

It does not matter if you have something to hide or not. It's not up to Microsoft to find it.


I am serious when I say that if you have a partial install of Win 10 that you stopped OR you have rolled it back because you don't like it...


YOU NEED TO back up you data and WIPE your drive and reinstall the OS you had on there. No if's, and's or but's.


It is the only way to rid yourself of any latching tentacles of Win 10.


I don't understand why you Yankees south of the 49 have not banded together and launched a class action suit against Microsoft. They are remotely reaching into your computer, against your will, sometimes tricking you into doing it, KILLING your bought and paid for OS and replacing it with something your will have to continuously pay for in the future.


Why sell something to someone once when you can lease it to them forever. Those big companies need more and more and continuously higher revenues.


This is NOT for your benefit! It's for theirs!

Tim I totally agree with you and I had this same conversation the other day with an aquaintance. last week Wins 10 tried to install itself on my business computer with all of my business and personal finance on it. Luckily I caught it in time. I cant see how this cannot be construed as being totally illegal in every way. By installing against your will,now you also have programs that wont run which youve paid for and then add the fact any upgrades are going to have to be paid for in the future. Try the same yourself against a client and see how far you'd get.

Microsoft considers Windows software theirs, no matter where is resides, and therefore that gives them the right to sniff your computer if it's running their software. And after all, Bill Gates considers his stuff the best thing since momma got her titty hung in the washer wringer so why should we complain when he take's over your computer? That's what that ******* really thinks like.

The problem with that where I'm concerned is that I'm not a socialist, never have been, and never will be. I was born with freedom, and guns in my DNA, so he can pucker up when I back up to him. Its my software now. It became mine when I installed it. I hit the I agree button when I really didn't agree to any such thing. When I hit the agree button, what I really meant was kiss my grits.

I haven't read Microsoft's EULA in many years but if I remember correctly part of it is that Microsoft can change the terms of the licence agreement and/or revoke your licence at any time.:surprise:
