It sure as hell looks as if it's installed it though. It says it's upgraded, and it shows the password screen for the last user, except it's different; the picture is circular, not square. You have to logon before it gives you the decline option.

And as the last person to use my wife's laptop last night, that makes it all my fucking fault, of course.
