Microsoft has been trying to get as many people as possible to upgrade for to Windows 10 for free, an offer that will expire at the end of this month. In doing so, the company has used all kinds of tricks to force users to upgrade to the latest Windows operating system and because of that, they managed to piss off a good number of users.

Now, Microsoft could face legal action across many countries and we are sure that this will not be good for the company. We remind you that Microsoft has already paid $10.000 to a woman who lives in California. She sued the company for destroying her work computer after it was automatically updated to the latest Windows 10 OS.

In concordance with Rockland Country Times, New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman, is now pursuing cases of Microsoft customers who’ve had similar issues to that of the Californian woman. Attorney Generals from other states are also starting to pursue cases against Microsoft for the same reason.

Microsoft claims that it never forced users to upgrade to Windows 10 and that they had to accept some terms in order to start the installation. At the same time, the company claims that a user can always return back to the Windows 7/Windows 8, but this can be done only within 30 days after the upgrade.

However, the problem is not that these users can’t downgrade back to Windows 7 or Windows 8, but that their computers have suffered damage or they’ve lost data, which is very important for them — especially if it is a work computer.

Was your computer upgraded to Windows 10 against your will? Will you sue Microsoft for forcing you to upgrade to Windows 10?
