A Windows 10 update is force-installing apps onto PCs without the user’s consent. This is not an isolated incident as other organizations have done similar actions. As an IT Asset Manager, keep an eye out for these unexpected installations. They are not always announced and the installations may occur without the IT Asset Manager’s knowledge. They may disrupt the workflow of the organization and require extra maintenance to remove the unwanted apps.
The International Association of IT Asset Managers (IAITAM) is the largest organization providing education, certification and thought leadership to the management of IT as a business.
