Annoying notifications kept coming up and I rejected them so many times. Then it said it will download in 8 hours in automatic update. I did change the update setting, but window 10 time are still counting down. I panicked and I don't know what to do.

I have tried on the computer with Windows 10 at school - I don't like it because it's just new animations and sometimes it is slow for me. I prefer window 8 - for me it is a simple design and I don't often use the boxy things. I don't play games on my laptop and I only used for working. I'm scared if they changed things like my documents.

Please how can I resolve this problem? Thanks.

P.S.
Sorry for bad English

Maybe Zargabaath or undercxver? :hide:

My laptop also automatically updated to Windows 10 and yeah I don't like it either tbh and it is much more slower now!! Don't worry they won't do anything to your documents they should be fine although to be on the safe side just transfer all your files to a USB.

You guys are deluded, one day Windows 10 will make you update to it and then you'll be begging me to help you with the system, too bad I'll be used to it while you guys wil be crying.

I was forced to download Windows 10 too, it started downloading automatically even though I said no. I don't mind it too much because it kept all my files and folders etc the same, but it has taken a while to get used to the new design and layout!

Ok well with my pc it pops up, and then it says some stuff can't remember exactly but don't freak out. Take your time and click where it says reschedule. You can also go to control panel and click I think Action Center or Windows Updates under System and Security once you open Control panel interface. And then schedule it. You can't disable it I don't think but if you really don't want it just learn to reschedule far away till you figure out how to disable.
