For other users, the dialog boxes are displaying a message saying, “Upgrade to Windows 10 is ready” and prompting them “Restart your PC to start the installation.”

The issue is actually happening because of the Windows Update process. The Windows 10 is listed as an “Optional” update by Microsoft, and these updates are unticked. That means, it should not be installed automatically; you have to check them manually in order to install the Windows 10 OS.

However, these updates were mistakenly checked by Microsoft at the time of listing them and in result, it’s getting installed on some computers or Laptops running Windows 8.1 and Windows 7. Now Microsoft has acknowledged the issue and unchecked the checkbox.
