Microsoft is removing its annoying upgrade notification soon!. The software giant is planning to remove its Get Windows 10 app from Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 PCs after July 29th.

Even weather forecasts aren't safe from Windows 10 upgrade prompts. Microsoft's aggressively nagging Windows 10 upgrade prompts claimed another victim on Wednesday morning. KCCI 8 News Meteorologist Metinka Slater was just trying to tell us the weather in southwest Iowa, but Windows 10 had other ideas. A giant Windows 10 upgrade prompt appeared, heading east towards Omaha and Red Oak and looking like the worst snow storm on record.

Microsoft confirmed yesterday that the company is planning to end its free Windows 10 upgrade offer on July 29th, and in a statement to WinBeta it has revealed the annoying upgrade notification will be disabled after July 29th:

"Details are still being finalized, but on July 29th the Get Windows 10 app that facilitates the easy upgrade to Windows 10 will be disabled and eventually removed from PCs worldwide. Just as it took time to ramp up and roll out the Get Windows 10 app, it will take time to ramp it down."

For Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 users who have resisted the move to Windows 10 it means the upgrade prompts will disappear. Third-party apps have allowed many to disable the notifications, and system administrators can kill the process for business machines. A giant Windows 10 upgrade prompt appeared during a weather forecast last week, providing some unusual comedy.

Try not to laugh or grin while watching this Microsoft Windows 10 free download update interrupt weather news blooper. Can you say Microsoft Windows 10 tutorial for this newscaster?

Slater was quick to switch feeds and rid Iowa of the Windows 10 UFO, narrowly avoiding state-wide panic over the Windows-related weather conditions. "Microsoft recommends upgrading to Windows 10, what should I do? Don't you love when that pops up!" Slater joked sarcastically. And that's precisely the point, everyone hates these damn notifications. Microsoft has been aggressively pushing Windows 10 out to existing Windows 7 and Windows 8 machines in a bid to reach its 1 billion devices goal, but this prompt is slowly turning into the new Blue Screen of Death.

Microsoft will end its free upgrade offer for Windows 10 on July 29th, but the company still has time left to reverse that decision. If the upgrade promotion does get extended, it's likely that the Windows 10 notifications will continue, but for now Microsoft is saying the notifications will end on July 29th.
