I found that registry key and also changed it and then rebooted. I got that nag immediately upon logging in so I removed MSE. Funny thing is I don't think that I even had the latest version since WU isn't working for me. It must have updated in the background. Thank you M$ for once again finding a way to nag us into updating to 10. I suppose that we can expect the same when 7 reaches EOL. Now I could understand one alert but to do so every time I reboot? Unacceptable.
