Earlier in 2015, Microsoft officially released its new Windows 10 operating system. With the release, the company forced users to upgrade to its latest Operating System Windows 10 without the consent of users.

The company had faced a backlash from the users when it tried to force them to upgrade to the company’s latest Windows 10 operating system without their consent. This forced the users to block the upgrade for as long as 365 days before downloading the latest version.

Today again we are getting reports that some users on their PCs with Windows 10 Anniversary Update (version 1607) and Windows 10 Creators Update (version 1703) are being forced to upgrade to the company’s latest Windows 10 version Fall Creators Update (1709). This upgrade is happening for users who have turned off the Windows Update option on their PCs.

The upgrade notification has come as a surprise to a lot of users, since the company is busy working on its next major update Spring Creators Update version 1803 which is scheduled to be released in April this year and is working on smoothing the Windows Upgrade path for its latest Windows 10 upgrade.

The users have reported that they have been receiving upgrade notifications on their PCs running Windows 10 versions older than Creators Update. Generally, the upgrade notifications are an advisory by Microsoft to get their systems updated with the latest security updates.

“Microsoft is aware that this notification was incorrectly delivered to some Windows 10 Version 1703 devices that had a user-defined feature update deferral period configured. Microsoft mitigated this issue on March 8, 2018,” the company explains.

The company in a note has confirmed that it has already mitigated the upgrade issue and has confirmed that the upgrade does not start until the user’s click the “Update now” button on the notification received.

Microsoft is still supporting its older versions Windows 10 Anniversary Update and Creators Update and has been pushing out security updates to the PCs running the above two older versions.
