Today, I got a new tablet running Windows 8.1 pro. I went to windows update in the control panel and download some update.
Here is the cases but all attemp seems to be unable to stop the "Force" upgrade of windows 10 from happening.
I DO NOT want to install windows 10.
Case 1: Select the updates for windows 8.1 I need, deselect Windows 10 upgrade in the Optional updates. At the bottom of the Windows update window, I can see the NO optional update is select, thus, the Windows 10 upgrade should not be downloaded.
Result: The Win 10 upgrade is still being downloaded regardless of the fact that I didn't select it.
Case 2: Select the updates for windows 8.1 I need, deselect and hide Windows 10 upgrade in the Optional updates.
Result: Same as the previous attempt, Win 10 upgrade is still being downloaded regardless of the fact that I didn't select it.
Case 3: Select only ONE update for windows 8. Make sure NO optional update is selected. Since the Win 10 upgrade is in the Optional update, it shouldn't be downloaded. I went to Optional update, look at it 3 times and make sure it's not selected!!
Result: Same! Still downloaded.
Why? I said NO, I DO NOT Want to upgrade to Windows 10.
From now on, I am forced to NOT RECEIVE ANY update for Windows 8.1 because any time I try to update, it will force me to upgrade to Windows 10.
Imagine I go to the car deal just to do an oil change and they force me to buy a new car instead! This is absurd!
