and in typical Microsuck fashion, every time the updates screw up machines, it's gonna be down to the people to fork out to put them right, i suppose!! this shouldn't be allowed. there is hardly a single update that is put out that doesn't end up locking the machine, removing compatibility of some piece of hardware, causing major BSODs or something even worse! what is needed is for a class action against Microsoft when this crap starts happening! just because they 'made windows' doesn't give them the right to force anything to be installed on a computer. all have been purchased and it should be down to the owner whether a machine is updated or not. on top of that, it should also be down to the individual to be able to uninstall an update if it plays the machine up! what the hell has gotten into Microsoft i dont know, but it seems to me that it has done deals with the devils (NSA,FBI,HS,CIA etc etc). considering how it done it's damnedest to force everyone to 'upgrade to windows 10, there has to be more of a reason(s) than just ease of making all machines 'similar'! it's as if they have promised all the security agencies that they will be able to get into all machines, see who has done what, with whom, when, where and how, just under the ridiculous excuse of 'stopping terrorism'! they haven't managed to stop anything yet as those who dont want to be spied on wont be, taking as many precautions as they need to remain secret, off the radar!!
