Microsoft GOD Mode

Microsoft GOD Mode

Anyone that is technically inclined or a nerd by nature is already up to speed with the abortion that is happily named Microsoft Windows 10. Probably the biggest problem those of us that build our own systems have with it, aside from the rest of the problems Windows gives us (forced restarts, Windows P2P, The scrolling Apps list in the start menu, default browser, Cortana sending you to Bing, Windows Store, replaced PDF reader with the Edge browser, and many many more issues) is this issue where somehow Microsoft went from being the worst driver manager on the planet to now forcing its drivers on us without the option to disable it.
