so the windows 10 bullshit never ran on my computer… i think that’s what contributed to the weird ceip bullshit that i bitched about in the last post. but on my precious persnickety wicket’s computer, it went full on
UPGRADE TO WINDOWS 10 NOW! THIS MESSAGE WILL NEVER GO AWAY. YOU MUST UPGRADE. DO IT. C’MON UPGRADE. DOOOOO EEEEEEEEEIT…
so while troubleshooting some other troubling issues on that box, i came across this marvelous fellow’s fix for removing GWX from windows 7. not only do i like his style, but his removal method is well documented and could be followed by anyone that’s even marginally comfortable with a little registry editing.
