Windows 7: How to remove Windows 10 upgrade updates in Windows 7 and 8

Anyone has the hidden C:\$Windows.~WS folder that holds the installer for both 32 and 64 bit Windows 10? I downloaded both Home and Pro version 32-64bit ISOs with the download tool last night, wonder if it was created then or auto-downloaded. I have not reserved with this PC, and had 3 updates not installed.

I have that folder in Windows 7 too, but it said BT at the end and not WS. However Windows 10 was reserved. But it didn't say the upgrade was ready yet even though it was downloaded. And yes Windows auto downloaded it!

If you used the media creation tool then that's the folder it gets downloaded to. Haven't installed 10 myself but did use the tool to download the ISO's. You can delete that folder when it's finished.

Lee, thanks for clearing that up. I will delete it right away, as I got the ISOs already anyway. I will download the Turkish ones too in a day (100GB download limit at 97GB at the moment, don't want to drop to 3Mbps )

Click on "Change Settings" guess what happens:


Well I of course turned off msgs about Windows Update but still that's a little sneaky

Reboot, then try again. From seeing your screen shots, it looks like windows update is updating itself.

So I changed the Action Center Settings for Windows Update on to make the Update reappear, after restart it is still there. Twice I selected "Let me choose" & it did nothing.
As soon I selected "Install updates automatically" it cleared :0(

Went back to sys&sec\Windows Update\Change Settings & put all back to normal. "Microsoft Update" (in settings) gave me some grief tho

Set Updates to Automatic. Hide Bing. The others are fine.
