We have a bunch of win7 Pro laptops all running our corporate image, activated with our volume lic key.

We have a legacy virtualized xp app which we know won't work with Win10.

I'm scared to death that Microsoft keeps changing the rules on win10 forced upgrades and one day my phone will start ringing off the hook that microsoft forced win10 on my users.

What's the best solution?

If I simply disable automatic updates, I presume that will prevent win10, but of course we won't be getting updates.

I'm furious that Microsoft is forcing win10 on perfectly good win7 machines and being so pushy about it.
