A month or so back, I spent many hours painstakingly removing that dumb Windows 10 opt-in
pre-load from my system. Well, it came back. I don't know how, but I'm sure it has something to do with +Microsoft Corporation
's disregard of its customer's will.
It is this simple: I have very little room on my C: drive. I need that for caching. You do not get to fill it up with an OS I have no interest in obtaining. And yes, I know it's free. By foisting it on me, you increase the odds that I HATE YOU FOREVER.
But whatever. It's just customer loyalty shit. Anyway, here's a link for those others who are trapped in the dumb hell of malware-marketing.
Keywords include: GDX.exe and Update KB3035583 and Clippy Must Die.
UPDATE: I know what the problem is. The problem
is that the preload is an Important
update and so re-emerges in that list (rather than optional
WHICH IS THE THING THAT IT IS BTW. I must now remember never to install that thing and will now perma-hide the Windows Update tray-icon.
Are you happy, MS? No, you aren't. You have that dumb smirk on your face even now. Good luck.
UPDATE of the UPDATE: Microsoft can kiss my ass. Basically, every
time I shut down the computer, Windows forces the installation of the pre-load. So I have this dance going: I remove the thing, I shutdown. I boot up, and then the next time I shut down, Windows always
installs the Win 10 preload.
Then I start up and repeat the process. If any of you know anyone at Microsoft... then keep them away from me. I don't trust myself in their presence.
