I haven't gotten any nag screens on my Windows 8.1 desktop but got this when I opened Windows update.

In an early morning before-coffee haze, I went ahead and reserved my Win 10 upgrade. Now I regret it and would prefer to go the ISO route. According to the Win 10 Q&A page, I should be able to 'cancel the reservation at any time'. However, when I do that, I have no option to cancel. Is anyone out there seeing an option to cancel?

Right click the Icon in the notifications area, select "Check your activation status". Then if you don't see the cancel option click the icon top left and select "view confirmation". When I did that I got a cancel option lower left.

That worked. Thanks a bunch!

I should have known MS would do their best to hide that option

I think its just a glitch. Anyway, that should fix it for you.

Why not keep the reservation, especially if you have more than one computer to update.

When you update, a install.esd file is downloaded and is the source for the update. You can then use the ESDtoISO tool to create an ISO from it then burn a DVD or make a flash drive to install from.

That's what most folks are doing with the current Windows 10 Technical Preview.

See if I can dig it up here, as I`m on a Windows 10 system right now.

What I'm wondering is how many programs will I have to replace that won't be compatible with Windows 10. I'm running 7 and it's going pretty smoothly. Why rock my boat?

Right click the Task Bar, select Properties.
On the Taskbar tab, look for Notification area and click on Customize.
Scroll through the notification and see if W10 shows up. If it does, give it a no-show.
Just as carwiz says, go into customize and turn the "Get Windows 10" notifications off. No need to panic or uninstall updates.

I have tried to stop it popping up via the "Hide icon and notifications icon" but it just keeps coming back. I have tried deleting the folder GWX but I get the error message that I need permission from "TrustedInstaller"
