No, Microsoft hasn't backtracked from zealous Windows 10 upgrade tactics

Secondary notice of pending upgrade was not added recently, but harks back to early May.

The free Windows 10 upgrade offer will expire July 29, after which Microsoft may disable the "Get Windows 10" (GWX) app that it planted on millions of Windows 7 and 8.1 PCs last year. GWX was responsible for the scheduled upgrade notifications users have encountered.
