Default How & Why you should remove Win 10 Freeware update.

No compatibility and it wont go away?

REASON 1.

It loads a start-up item:
"The executable “GWX.exe” autostarts through the Task Scheduler. GWX.exe is the system tray icon." -This slows you system.

REASON 2.

Windows 10 IS NOT SUPPORTED BY Avid or Pro Tools!!!

HOW-TO REMOVE:

In Windows Start menu type 'win update' and open it.
click installed updates on bottom left.

Look for update: KB3035583 ; sort by date to quickly find KB3035583

Right click, uninstall.

When prompted, restart system.

Thanks for the "how to" and identifying which update to uninstall.

So how long do you think it will be before Avid qualifies Win10? Sometime mid to late 2017 you think?

They are slow sometimes, but hopefully they have some of the builds already working and are in testing now. Microsoft wants everyone to move to Win 10 asap.

Win 10 is free for all Win 7 and Win 8.x users. That's what the tray icon is about.

It definitely wont be before the end of 2015.

If it was, that would mean that a significant number of Pro Tools users would be able to remain current in OS terms, but could stay at PT11, without having to buy in to a support plan.

No, you have one year to make the upgrade for free. After that you'll have to pay for the upgrade.
