    Windows 10 and background downloads.


    Hi there

    I tried Windows 10 a few weeks ago, just for a day because i wanted to see what it was like. I went back to my windows 7 install as I think its wise to wait to SP1 on such a new OS before really considering it.

    There was one thing that worried me slightly when testing it, it seemed to re-download and install deleted apps, have many failed updates, what worried me right now is that few have reported that a trail version of office is downloading and installing without permission.

    If this is true I find it staggering, maybe its just a setting that needs changing I don't know, can anyone clarify if these reports are true or not or am I concerned over nothing. ? If the price of a free upgrade is that Microsoft simply download anything they wish to your computer then it's simply not worth it.

    Zoo

  2. My Windows 10 download doesn't seem to be making progress.

    I reserved my Windows 10 Copy and got a notification saying that it was ready to install in the background. Two days later it still says that Windows 10 is downloading in the background and when I click 'view download progress' nothing happens. Any ideas?
