One of my computers is a Dell (Windows 10 Pro); I got it not too long ago. Whenever I get a new computer, I usually go to the Control Panel and remove the bloatware they install on it. For some reason, I didn't do it this time. As their SupportAssist was getting on my nerves with its notifications, I went to the Control Panel and removed the following -- Dell SupportAssistDell, SupportAssist Remediation, Dell Update - SupportAssist Update Plugin. I did it after checking the Windows 10 forums.
Andy, I have not yet tried the update because of ISP problems and now I am hesitant to do so.
Will Microsoft force us to update?
I read someplace that MS is still working to iron out all the bugs.
Microsoft won't force the update on you, but they have a way of gently persuading you to do it eventually. Any consumer version is supported for 18 months (meaning you receive patches and updates, which are critical to get). After that, you have to move to the next version. So if you are running the 1909 version of Windows 10 (which is what I have) you have until May of 2021 to upgrade. Any bugs should be worked out by then. support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/13853/windows-lifecycle-fact-sheet
