"Your computer will restart". Who has never seen this message appear on their machine when Windows decided it was time to install an update ?
Lately, several users of the Microsoft operating system have seen Windows 10 restart their machine without their authorization to start the installation of an unsolicited update.
And, surprise, when they restart their PC, they found new applications installed on their machine. For some users, Microsoft appears to be pushing an update to integrate the web applications of its Office suite online. Executed directly from an Edge browser window, they offer the possibility of free access to lighter versions of Word, Excel, Outlook, or PowerPoint. If the intention is good, the way to proceed is somewhat cavalier.
This forced installation initially appeared to be only available to Insider program members.. However, it appears that users working with stable versions of Windows 10 have also undergone this installation without their consent. Microsoft is not at its first step when it comes to promoting its own solutions within Windows 10, which is unpleasant when you know the price of a license sold on official channels.
