Ron, I posted some important information about this, but Dell has blocked my posts for some reason. PM me at SpywareHammer if my post regarding the Never10 utility from Steve Gibson doesn't show up in this forum.

Thanks. I found the app at his site (grc.com) and ran it on my Win 7 PC.

Time will tell if that stops MStupid from trying to make me upgrade to Win 10...

RE: Nag, nag, nag...

You're quite welcome, Ron. I've upgraded all my computers except my tablet. I used GWX CP on that. It was getting the icon, but it has not been tested for compatibility, and I don't want to be the one to do the testing.

Let us know how Never10 works out for you.
