Finally got through downloading and installing the 34 updates. Did it in multiples of 9 or so updates at a time. The average time required to complete each download and install was slightly over
3 hours per session. The overall process took more time because each update was scrutinized to avoid downloading and installing updates related to configuring the computer for updating to Win 10.
I've read that in some instances a computer was automatically converted to Win 10 without the knowledge or approval of the owner. In fact, in one report the owner sued Microsoft for $10,000, and in
this instance Microsoft decided not to fight and just pay the money to the litigant. If anyone wants to avoid updating to Win 10 there is a application called Never10 that can be downloaded and
installed that prevents a conversion. When it is run a window appears indicating if your computer has the KB update that accommodates Win 10, it will then show a button for disabling Win 10. If at a
later date you wish to convert to Win 10, the app is run again upon which the enable button is activated. Hence, the app should be downloaded and installed where it can be easily found.
Having stated that for the foreseeable future I'm not interested in converting to Win 10, of the Gurus that use Win 10, what has been your experience? Is it user friendly? Do you like it?
