that’s right kiddos, they’re trying to use automatic updates to force your computer to upgrade to win 10.
Which would be fine and dandy if every windows user in the world ran a standard operating environment but they fucking don’t and this will break a lot of computers.
To stop this for win 7: Go to your control panel, select Windows Updates. Click on Change Settings. Pick any option you like except ‘install updates automatically’ (Personally I use “download but let me choose” as M$ has a nasty habit of breaking things with unnecessary patches, but then again I know this shit backwards, so YMMV)
If you’re running win XP: Stop punishing yourself.
Signal boost for anyone who might have this option on.
I don’t, but I elected to upgrade my Surface to 10 and have regretted it. No way in hell I’d want it on my desktop machine.
P.S.: fuck Canon also for refusing to make drivers for slightly older printers on Win10. Win10 acts like it has all the
answersdrivers, but it doesn’t. Even if you want to upgrade, check printer compatibility before you do or you may end up with devices you can’t use with that computer anymore.
Boosting. Windows 10 completely broke my machine because not all of my hardware was compatible with it. Which is a really common thing. If your hardware works with 10, it’s fukkin great. But if it doesn’t, your computer will explode.
Yeah this happened to me a while back…
It’s absolutely bullshit that they’re doing this to people, especially since not everyone knows windows update can turn your computer on to update it for you if you’ve turned it off
If they do upgrade you to Windows 10 and you don’t catch it in time, you can roll back without losing any personal files as long as you do it within 30 days

This is very concerning. I just spent the last ten minutes removing my entire family (including my 14-year-old sister) from the site.
Cool Mom Tech has a guide on how to take your information off the site if for some reason you can’t watch the above video.
Just to inform everyone, it’s American only, but it’s real. I’ve found 3 of my friends already with this sight and the only reason I knew it was them was because I happen to have their address. PLEASE CONFIRM IF YOU ARE ON THIS SITE AND IF YOU ARE, REMOVE YOURSELF. NOW.
I’m screaming internally because I just searched up a handful of my friends who live in America.. and found every single one of them without fail. This is scary.
For my American followers
This is creepy as hell and completely legit. Please take the time to remove yourself from this list.
I just googled it and yeah. Now I can see a real meaning behind the saying ‘don’t give out personal info on the internet’..though in these times it’s difficult not to
THIS IS SCARY SHIT. This could be how my ex has been getting my information for a long time… ITS DANGEROUS. I JUST CHECKED IT OUT AND ITS REAL. IM ON THERE, MY FAMILY IS ON THERE. THIS IS NOT OKAY.
