During a live weather report on the evening news, a meteorologist was blindsided by the Windows 10 nag screen blowing in from the west.
It’s Friday so we thought we’d share something that’s funny. Well, it’s funny depending on how you look at it. During a live weather report on the evening news at KCCI in Des Moines, Iowa the Windows 10 upgrade reminder message made an appearance.
The short video below shows what happened during the live broadcast.
Personally, I think the meteorologist did an excellent job of dealing with the situation, but tech geeks it’s humorous situation.
The Windows 10 Upgrade Nag Isn’t Always Funny
While the video above makes for a nice live news blooper, it’s not funny to a lot of people still running Windows 7 and always getting this update nag screen. Microsoft has been quite aggressive with its push to get everyone on Windows 10 as soon as possible.
However, not everyone can upgrade due to specific software or hardware they can only run on Windows 7. There are workarounds for legacy software, but some users simply don’t want to upgrade and are tired of seeing the annoying message.
We’ve looked at different ways of stopping the upgrade notification, but Microsoft keeps sending out updates that make them ineffective.
If you want the annoying update message to stop, at the time of this writing, the best utility we recommend is Never 10 from security guru Steve Gibson.
What are your thoughts on this video and the aggressive strategy that Microsoft has implemented with the Windows 10 update? Leave a comment below and let us know.
