Upgrade to Windows 10 Update - Enable or Disable in Windows 7 or 8.1 - Windows 10 Forums
Yes, I know about the KB 3080351 blocks. Josh Mayfield and I corrected Microsoft's documentation about it two months ago. You got the right registry entry, DisableOSUpgrade. Microsoft originally documented an entry, AllowOSUpgrade, that doesn't work.

The point is that, on Friday night, Microsoft performed an update overnight and installed Win10 on this machine, even though I had unchecked the entry, and didn't run anything.

That behavior changed on Saturday night, as documented in my reports.
The W7 that I've been referencing and using screenshots from is fully updated with the same updates you mentioned, and is still the same for just having to uncheck what you don't want to install.

Here's some more screenshots following what you suggested though.

Heck, I am out of a job; by choice and loving it!
I think we are talking about 2 different kinds of jobs.

I must be the dumb one.

If one gets to this forum and joins there is more that enough information on Windows 7 updates.
When it comes to W-10 updates for Windows 7 their are tutorial and threads on this forum and the Ten Forum that can give you the needed information if one wants to look.
Blogs to me is not a method of gathering information.

In my limited experience W-10 will not install on Windows 7 with out a user input.
I really don't know what happens except what I read when one has updates set to auto.
I have never done automatic updates.

I would bet the answer is on this forum if one cares to look.

One does not have to like John or any other member of this forum.
One does not have to agree with John or any other member of this forum.
In my opinion one should show respect and politeness to all members.

John owns and operates one the most successful help forums on the internet.
To me he has earned my respect whether I agree with him or not.
Yes their are time I don't agree with him, so what. The would isn't perfect.

There have been things done on the forum in the last week or so that I don't agree with but who am I.
I'm just a member. I'm not in the chain of command and don't want to be.
This forum or any other forum is a dictatorship with a chain of command.
I know who the dictator is and who are in the chain of command.
To the best of my ability I will follow their rules and guidelines.
When I do make a mistake the rulers just remove my mistake and I learn. I'm thinking; OOP's don't do that Jack and shut up my keyboard. I think I will just hang around until a perfect forum comes along.

That is how simple it is to me.

Hmm, a perfect forum would be nice. But how would we imperfect specimens fit in there.
