No Choice Now!!! – Technology Microsoft forcing Windows 7 and 8.1 users to install Windows 10

Technology giant Microsoft is blocking Windows 7 and 8.1 updates on Intel’s seventh generation Core i3, i5 and i7 AMD’s seventh generation processor (Bristol Ridge) and Qualcomm’s 8996 processors.

While trying to scan and download updates through Windows Update, error messages appear saying, “Windows could not search for new updates” and “code 80240037 Windows Update encountered an unknown error.”

As explained in Microsoft Knowledge based article the errors occur as the new processor generations require the latest Windows version. For those on Windows 7 and 8.1, Microsoft recommends updating the devices to Windows 10.
