Woman Wins $10,000 From Microsoft After Unwanted Windows 10 Upgrade

Good for her! She deserves it based on their bad behavior. Too bad the award doesn't have 5 or 6 more zeroes to the left of the decimal point. The Redmond Mafia needs to learn a lesson for their bad behavior, and that tiny little slap on the wrist will only represent a minor inconvenience to them. They deserve to draw back a bloody stump.

 

Unfortunately, the wickedness of Micro$loth knows no boundaries. They think they own us and our computers. This is what I use to kill all of the spyware and telemetry trash in Windows 10, block all updates and permanently expunge all of the bloatware apps and Windows Store garbage. It also kills and deletes OneDrive and disables (rather than only muting) UAC. Works great... very nice tool IMHO. 

 

Destroy Windows Spying

 

I have also found third-party tweaks to replace the hideous giant calculator with the older version, completely kill the obnoxious Security Center nag-o-rama and exterminate Cortana. 

 

Notwithstanding the tacky-looking aesthetics that remain (nasty abuse of white and pastel colors akin to the Windows 8.X abortion) it's fairly decent if you go to enough trouble to correct all of their mistakes. Performance in some things is still inferior to Windows 7, unfortunately. I pointed that out as an 'Insider' quite some time ago, but they apparently do not plan to fix it. They started hindering CPU performance in Windows 8.X and they must think it's OK since they are leaving it messed up from then until now.

Yeah this poor lady didn't get enough if you ask me. Her business was down for days and she needed to buy a new computer in the end. I'm surprised this is the first case actually.

Me, too. Very surprised. Hopefully, there will be many more like it. I hope they get hammered with lawsuits for their control freak approach.

$10,000 is not enough and i hope Microsoft gets more lawsuit for being control freaks. I really hate windows 10 but had no choice!

Great software update for this lady )))

Seems she did not think it was great, but she got what she deserved and so did the Redmond Nazis.

      I have always been a big fan of Windows 7. I have 4 Media PCs throughout my house and a laptop. I have recently updated some of them to Windows 10 Pro. I have tried everything to get them talking on my LAN. I cannot share files anymore. They all ping, but are missing in the network folder. Thank God for Plex. Any advice?

      Hi guys,
       
      I'm sorry for making another thread just for this but I really wanted to pick your brains on this!
       
      I have an m15x with a 770m running windows 7 and everything works. Rock. Solid. I'm pretty happy with it. Since windows 7 is on it's way out, I would like to upgrade to windows 10. Now I've looked into it before and had a really hard time getting the 770m to behave nicely and had all these issues with green/yellow/pink screens and I remember it being a miracle I got it to work on 7 as good as it does.
       
      My question is how well does the 970m install vs the 770m - particularly on windows 10? I would buy it in a heartbeat if it makes the install less tedious with the colored screens and all that. Especially if all the functions work on it! I have been searching the internet and I cannot find nearly as many problems with the 970m as I could with the 770m, or am I just  not looking in the right places?
       
      Thanks a million!

      Hello. I'm currently running windows 10 on bios version 1.00 and want to upgrade to 1.03 but cannot boot Ms dos flash in uefi. There is no option to enable Legacy mode and the option to disable uefi in bios is greed out. When I try booting from flash in bios, it shows black screen and returns back to bios screen. My rig is a p157sm. Any help will be appreciated as I'm looking to install prema bios mod.

      Hello
       
      My M18XR2 was working on Windows 10 with a 880M.
      Last week, I reinstalled my system, and I couldn't get nvidia driver working...
      I took the last installed modified driver, and even downloaded latest version, modified it again, nothing to do, I have same error : nvidia installation failed. 
      I only install the graphic driver too, it fail. The screen goes black, then light again, and it fail...
      Do someone have an idea how to fix this probleme ? 
      Thank you

      Hi all. I was wondering if anyone had ever figured out if windows 10 will work with the GTX 770m on the M15x (bios A09). I've found a few forum posts about it and they all end up off topic. Ive tried a few different driver versions but every single one ends up green/pink/white screening when I enable the IDT sound device in device manager and through driver setup. It is stable if I don't have the device enabled. Anyone have any advice?
