Microsoft’s aggressive campaign to get customers to Windows 10 is raising some eyebrows, with scattered reports that some people’s PCs are automatically upgrading from Windows 7 — without their explicit permission.

For instance, in a post titled “My PC Upgraded To Windows 10 Without Asking, Then Immediately Broke,” Kotaku’s Patrick Klepek shares the story of how, last week, his Windows 7 PC installed the Windows 10 update automatically overnight.

“Maybe I forgot to push back the upgrade schedule, maybe I accidentally scheduled it by clicking the wrong button. Whatever the case, I definitely did not intend to install Windows 10,” Klepek writes.

In the comments, on Reddit, and elsewhere on social media, other users chimed in to share their own similar stories of their familiar Windows 7 and 8.1 PCs getting suddenly upgraded to Windows 10.
