Unwanted upgrade to Windows 10

I have Windows 7.
When I look into the Windows Update history today it says:
Upgrade to Windows 10 Home Failed.
What is this?? I do not want this upgrade!
How can I get rid of this upgrade?

Thank you.

All that is talking about is the download of the files to allow you to upgrade. The actual upgrade you have to start.

Did you ever click on the "Reserve your free upgrade" for the Win 10 free upgrade offer ?
