Microsoft's Windows 10 nagware storms live TV weather forecast

Well, this blows

Microsoft's relentless Windows 10 nagware has interrupted a live TV weather forecast, urging meteorologist Metinka Slater to upgrade.

The operating system suddenly popped up a box on screen insisting the station's computer be upgraded to the latest version – while Slater was on air describing thunderstorms rolling through Iowa, US.

The cyber-badgering blatted over her doppler weather radar, which was being broadcast on KCCI 8 News earlier today.

"Microsoft recommends upgrading to Windows 10. Gosh, what should I do?" Slater asked sarcastically.

We know Microsoft has been making a sledgehammer-meets-nut job of injecting Windows 10 into people's PC – cramming it into business machines, encouraging people to disable automatic updates, and ripping off malware-ish techniques – but this is ridiculous. If you have any examples of Windows 10's forced upgrades ruining your day, let us know, please, via email [PGP] or the comments. ®
