Windows 7 users to get full-screen reminders to upgrade starting next month

If you thought Microsoft was done with its infuriating and embarrassing nagging reminders about upgrading to Windows 10, you probably don't know Microsoft too well. It received no small amount of criticism over its aggressive campaign to get Windows 8 and 8.1 users to move to the next version that resulted in popups appearing at the most inopportune moment.
