    Default End of Win 7 support

    A bit of useful information for those who still use Win 7.

    As you know MS will be ending all support for Win 7 in Apr 2020. As part of phase out it seems MS will again start 'nagging' Win 7 users about upgrading to Win 10.

    This page may be of use to those who want to avoid the nags.....
    Regards

    Unsupported and unupdated W7 works fine for me.

    Ever since Microsoft started their assault to upgrade W7 to W10 (WITHOUT YOUR PERMISSION), I've been careful to read EACH and EVERY update offered. If it even hinted of Windows 10, I hid the update.

    I also downloaded all the W10 Free manual updates from the Microsoft Update Catalog so I would always be able to do a manual reinstall.

    Then they started the update "Roll Ups". Not knowing what was being pushed, I quit installing updates all together.

    Hopefully I avoided any hidden messages to update to W10.

    Of course, FS2020 will require W10, so I went to the expense of a 2nd NVMe PCIe slot adapter and drives just for that UGLY, intrusive Windows 10 that will ONLY be used for FS2020

    After what Microsoft pulled with the upgrade to Windows 10, I'm more inclined to trust Mitja or even his brother Dimetry from the Ukraine

    I don't understand why Microsoft made this decision,maybe it doesn't matter to us,The Windows 10 i am using is an upgrade from Windows 7.but I still miss Windows 7, even though it does its best to work for me.
