The 90 year old grandmother of my in-laws.

I received an email from my girlfriend’s grandmother that she got a pop-up every time she started her laptop in the Microsoft notifications about Windows 10 feedback.

This woman is (almost) 90, and can email by herself, even make online purchases, and much more. So often when she asks for help with her laptop, there is a problem that’s serious.

Every time she started up her PC, she got the message whether she wanted to give feedback about Windows 10, and whether it could be turned off.
