More information on the tool can be found here: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/890830

Accepting the license (or not) is up to you, but I don't think there is anything "fishy" about it. Scott.

Years ago there was malware that impersonated the MSRT: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/virus-r ... -fake-msrt

I don't believe that is a current problem, but if you believe you have malware then I recommend you remove it. Let me know what you find. Scott.

Ok here is the screen shot that I get but I just want to make sure that microsoft is not trying to trick me into upgrading to windows 10 as well.

I know they are trying to be tricky and pulling crap on people into upgrade to sucking windows 10.


I also download a software that is never10 that disable windows 10 upgrade and also remove any other files. I got it from www.grc.com if anyone else want to download it.

I recommend the GWX Control Panel instead. Scott.
