Windows 7 rebooting on its own, says its upgrading to windows 10

Hi,
my parents windows 7 PC just rebooted, saying its upgrading to windows 10, can i stop it? Or will I just have to wait for it to install and then revert back?
I did NOT tell it to upgrade by the way, my Mum was just browsing the internet and it started upgrading to windows 10.

The EULA is a legal document that has to accepted before software can be upgraded or installed, When you are prompted to accept it you should decline and the system should revert to how it was

I would then download and install the GWX control panel Ultimate Outsider - Software Downloads which allows removal of and control of the update files

OK, thanks, i haven't been prompted yet but I will decline it when it asks
EDIT: I clicked decline and it is reverting back, it should have asked me BEFORE it upgraded, not after. I will try thatGWX control panel. Thanks!

If it does not show the EULA, (Mum may have acceptrd things accidently ), you can use this method to revert within 30 days

Good to hear, Now first thing is get the GWX Control panel installed and working - so you can upgrade if and when you are ready
