Hundreds of Windows users have recently complained in social netwotks that their Windows 7 or Windows 8.1 PCs have automatically upgraded to Windows 10 without asking for any user permissions. The affected users claim they never approved or initiated the upgrade, but were forced into the upgrade anyway.
"I left my computer unattended and when I came back it was installing Windows 10. I'm 100 percent sure that no one accessed my computer when I was away. Did it install automatically? Without me agreeing?," a user on Reddit questioned.
The unwanted behavior started after Microsoft released a security patch last Tuesday that reclassified the upgrade as "important."
This isn't the first time Microsoft has pushed aggressively Windows 10. Back in September of last year, it decided to push out Windows 10 upgrade files to PCs to anyone who chose to receive automatic updates through Windows Update.
