..I have a notice on my netbook to upgrade to Windows 10..

..I have windows 7 with all the current stuff on the Netbook, I have windows 8.2 or something like that on another computer which is ok but it has it's limitations as it seems like you are working with windows 8 or desktop and I find myself having to work both of them separately on the same computer.

..I actually thought Windows 8.? was the latest edition and never even heard about vs. 9.

..Does anyone have any insight they can share with us on Window's 10, it's benefits, and if it's a good upgrade or why you should pass? TIA...:salute:

I've been running Windows 10 on my old laptop for a few months now. It's fast booting and I like the feel of it better than 8 or 8.1... but it's still unstable and unfinished. The last update completely hosed the laptop SSD and none of the recovery options work. I would wait a while to upgrade an older system unless it's expendable.

Ted, they skipped 9 and went right to 10. There will be free upgrades available for Windows 7 - 8.x.

I agree with Ritsui, wait a bit before installing the new OS.

I have also received the upgrade notice on my machines.

..Thanks guys..That's kinda what I thought but this is the first time I got notified so early and after looking into it find it's a pre-order for free deal..:confused:

..I left clicked on the notification Icon looking for a "no thanks" button and couldn't find one...I right clicked the icon looking for a "Delete Icon" or notification button but couldn't find one either..

Does anyone have a quick fix to remove this notification and icon from the computer?..:scratch:

You only have a year to upgrade for free supposedly. Leave the notification there and possibly upgrade right before your time is up.

If you want to remove it, open Control Panel -> Windows Update. Click on the "installed updates" link at the bottom. Locate update KB3035583, right-click on it and uninstall.

Not 'quick', but you can also disable it via Task Scheduler:
Task Scheduler Library -> Microsoft -> Windows -> Setup -> gwx
Task Scheduler Library -> Microsoft -> Windows -> Setup -> GWXTriggers
