^ most of use here on tech forums did avoid those updates, but a lot of people who didnt know, werent.. and many many had such problems for a long time.. till preactivated disks started showing up in the market place.
if microsoft were really stupid enough this time, they would try to implement some sort of tricks like those.... but then they would be really stupid.. cz Windows 8 / 8.1 both have been tremendous flops.. and majority has reverted back to original windows 7... this time it seems it has hit worse than vista..
lets wee what the new balmer replacement does for the windows platform soon..
i keep the updates permanently off. And when service pack comes out, i just get updated iso with integrated service pack.
Have used a windows 7 installation for over a year and updates permanently off. Then i format the system to try 8.1 out
