    From website waiting for Wilders experts to chime in.

    GWX Stopper 3.0 Released to Make Forced Windows 10 Upgrades Impossible!

    Why GWX Stopper is better than GWX Control Panel or Never10?

    1) GWX Control Panel uses real-time monitoring against GWX.
    It takes the computer resources and it is not a bulletproof solution.
    You get rid of GWX, but got the GCP.
    GWX Stopper does not use real-time monitoring.
    It does not consume additional resources.
    GWX Stopper sets a trap for all GWX related processes.

    If GWX.EXE executes, you will see GWX Stopper window instead of GWX.

    2) Never10 relies on Microsoft policy preventing GWX. But it is not good because Microsoft may change “games rules” in any moment. It does not fix GWX tasks and background working.
    GWX may still work without displaying something.
    GWX Stopper completely protects you against running GWX and it removes GWX background working too.

    GWX Stopper is lightweight and simple in use.

    In a few more weeks this should not be an issue anyway, should it?

    Yes, unfortunately. I'll be glad that there will be no more forced upgrades, but won't happy that Windows 10 won't be a free upgrade anymore.
