How to stop Windows 10 download?

Postby arlojanis » Sun Jun 05, 2016 11:23 am

My Windows 8.1 computer had a pop up box that said Windows 10 would start downloading or installing. I did not want Win 10. I X closed the boxed, but 10 still installed. I do not want Win 10 on my Win 7 computer. How do I prevent another unwanted install?

https://www.grc.com/never10.htm is the tool most people use. You can also lookup & remove the KB that installs it (as part of Windows Update).

Remove this update:

Update for Windows 7 for x64-based Systems (KB3035583)

If it comes back again, tell it "Hide this update".

Just a heads up I don't believe that is the only KB out there. I think the one that's for Windows 8/8.1 is different.

Never had a problem with any of my win 7 machines. They know win 10 is out there, and like to keep offering it. However, I do not download updates automatically, rather I do them manually.
