    I had previously upgraded from win7 (daz loader) to win8.1(kms pico) to win10 (free upgrade). After trying out windows 10 on my 6 year old pc , I thought its better to go back to win7 coz that was faster with proper driver support.

    I am able to install win7 sp1 but updates are no longer showing up. Its always searching for updates.

    Has microsoft pulled the plug for users who migrated to windows 10?

    Any reason as to why this happens? Especially on a clean install.Never happened when windows 7 was the flagship OS.

    Yup, Windows 10 is the reason, and Windows 7's market share they want to kill by making it a PITA
