Why does windows explorer keep updating itself

This might also be a good time to look over our Windows Updates & Patch Tuesday FAQ page if you haven't already.‚ÄčNote: Any of Microsoft's operating systems could experience problems after Windows updates are installed, including Windows 10, Windows 8, Windows 7, Windows Vista, Windows XP, and Windows Server versions.

Important: Please read the sections below before moving on to the troubleshooting steps!

To get your computer running again, you need to understand how this troubleshooting is organized, as well as make sure that your problem really was most likely caused by a Windows update.

Some have older peripherals that aren't supported with Windows 10.

At least some of the grumbling may be attributable to a patch Microsoft pushed to a number of users this month as part of Patch Tuesday (KB3146449, which is buried inside Internet Explorer security patch KB3139929) which "adds functionality to Internet Explorer 11 on some computers that lets users learn about Windows 10 or start an upgrade to Windows 10." (This update seems only to create a "Get Windows 10" banner, and clicking the cancel button on it seems to remove it permanently, from what I can tell.)But the growing amount of noise got me curious if there was more going on, beyond yet another new piece of Microsoft nagware.

I wondered if there had been another mistake like what happened last October when Microsoft pushed Windows 10 to some who hadn't reserved copies and didn't want it to override their Windows 7 or 8. (Microsoft ended up fixing Windows Update at that time to stop this issue.) Or is this the new era of "business as usual" and Windows 7/8 users beware?

As I've said before, I am not a fan of Microsoft's decision to take this route to move users to Windows 10.

I think users should be the ones who decide if and when they update their PCs to a new operating system.
