Microsoft’s aggressive push toward Windows users to upgrade to Windows 10 is nothing new. However, since not many people are impressed with Windows 10, they have yet to upgrade their computers to it. Microsoft responded to this challenge by updating user devices to Windows 10 without their knowledge. In fact, a woman sued Microsoft for upgrading her work computer to Windows 10, something that jeopardized her business

Now, the Get Windows 10 app, which assists users by checking if their computers have the minimum requirements for running Windows 10, has been updated with a countdown timer. The free Windows 10 Update ends on July 29, 2016, which means that you have one week left to take advantage.

In addition, the application also received a clearer “Decline free offer” button, something many users have been wanting for a while. You will also notice that the application has an updated alert taskbar tray icon.

Windows 10 comes with many new features, but one of the main reasons why many users don’t want to upgrade has to do with Microsoft’s privacy policies (or lack thereof), with Redmond retrieving a lot of information about things done your computer — especially while surfing the internet.

Have you upgraded to Windows 10 yet? What are your thoughts about it?
