    They're tricking most people to upgrade, which is dishonest. :sneaky: The last new 'push' seems more like a scare tactic :rolleyes:


    You basically turn on your computer and are immediately greeted with a large popup on your desktop telling you that you have an important windows update required for your security. You're then given only 2 choices (upgrade now or upgrade later). :rolleyes:


    Technically, there is a 3rd option, but it's sort of hidden and not obvious to some. You can press the little X in the right-hand corner to close this message, but most home users are not even going to think about that and are going to freak seeing this new message from Microsoft. :rolleyes:

    This behavior reminds me of how malware would trick the unexpected user into installing something they did not need. :eek:
