Microsoft Pulls the 'Get Windows 10' App

One of the biggest complaints of users that don't want to get a free OS upgrade to Windows 10 is that Microsoft continuously nags you to get it. They pop up somewhat obtrusively and in my opinion, this pretty much constitutes malware. Thankfully, after much complaining, ranting, ticked off users and more than a little bad press, Microsoft is rolling out an update that will disable the 'Get Windows 10' app. There were ways to remove it manually, but none were easy and you shouldn't have to hack your OS to remove a popup - from the OS manufacturer.

Microsoft officials initially didn't say that it might take some time for the free update to be available to those with Genuine Windows 7 and 8.1 product keys. But after it came to light that the free update was still available, though not advertised as available, it seemed there might be some sort of grace period during which Microsoft quietly would allow users to upgrade for free to Windows 10.
