Default what the actual fuck (windows 10)

Just came home from work and turned on pc to a "welcome to windows 10" screen

Ive been denying their adware shit for months now and have even gone in and deleted the update files etc thats supposed to get rid of it.. and then it force installs on my pc while its not even on? I refused their terms and declined the free windows 10 and now its stuck trying to restore to windows 7..

Wtf kind of shit is this man

I just went in the win folder and changed all the file names and shut down the processes. Hasn't bothered me since... yet.

If you have automatic updates enabled on Windows, this is your own fault. You literally agreed to this.

Everyone I've talked to has had nothing but horror stories about windows 10. A guy I work with updated his laptop and now it's unusable as a result.

@nilbog thanks bud I'll check that out. Looks like it managed to restore back to 7 at least. Was scared it was gonna take a dump and tell me I'm fucked
