Windows 7 machines automatically upgrading WITHOUT permission to Windows 10

http://news.softpedia.com/news/windows-10-upgrade-reportedly-starting-automatically-on-windows-7-pcs-501651.shtml

If this is really the case: Scxxx you Microsoft!!!!!
Neither one of my Windows 7 machines received anything about the upgrade  through Windows Update.

Blocking Windows 10 Upgrade from Windows 7 and Windows 8.1
An easy way to do this is to install the GWX Control Panel

"new feature is that it will now track even more of your personal information and sell it to advertising companies and other people"

I had to buy a new monitor because the one I had been using wasn't compatible with my newest computer.   Got everything hooked up, checked for win updates and once again it installed win 10.
I like it but I can't find Internet Explorer.  I don't like Microsoft Edge at all so can someone please tell me how I can fine IE?

Thank you.

At lower left is a magnifying glass ... click and write internet explorer .... when it pops up, click it / or right click on it and select a option to pin it where you want it for easy access
