M$ Windoze 10 wants to have me remove VirtualBox before W10 does an update, because VB is "incompatible" with W10.

Is anyone else getting this?
Can I just ignore W10's bleating?
Can I get around the bleating?

What do people suggest I do?
I like to keep W10 up-to-date.

Thanks,
Peter

Seems you are not alone in this. This is just one of several pages that came up on a quick search.
