Strange that the graphic shows 139,00 $ ???
It should be $139.00

Man now that's even more concerning.
I don't know. :-\

I'm hoping the Upgrade coming soon will rectify the issue, Not sure a "Reset" of the installation would resolve anything.

Download Windows 10 Insider Preview ISO Build 10565
I really recommend downloading this version as it allows to install Windows 10 with your legit Windows 7/8/8.1 key.

On contrary, completely stable, new features (small context menu, etc.). But, indeed, Insider build.

For those of us who are using the insider builds, we pretty much already have all those items mentioned in the
Threshold 2 release. :)

Its not that i dont want Windows 10, i just hate this aggressive way from Microsoft to get Windows 7 that may not
want Windows to do the Upgrade to Windows 10 :)

Im fine with Windows 10 for now so far.

All you need to do is uninstall the Windows update that adds GWX and then hide it when it shows up again. My Win 7 laptop has no such annoyances.

Thats a way to get rid of it, but sooner or later Microsoft will push out the update again, which they already did.
