Windows 7 - 64 bit

1. I was trying to find out **if** the initial post was going to be updated ... this is common practice in many forums to save those following the thread from having to read pages and pages to get updated information. Often when someone creates a thread, it is a topic of interest for they, they come back, follow it and update it. Since only the OP can do this, was hoping the inquiry might spur such a response. For example:

The Radiator Volume Thread

or perhaps someone knew of another source of the requested information.

2. I have no desire to look at an entire list of authoritative updates, but merely an update of the list of 7 updates which initiated the thread topic ... those being ones which try and force a guerrilla install of Win 10.

A forum's usefulness is enhanced when a user can benefit from the experience of others, if anyone following the thread has this information in hand, it would make a fine addition and be very useful ... if it was easy enough to find w/o spending hours. Some participants are happy do do so.

If what I was hoping for does not happen, with the long weekend coming up next week, I will try and read thru the entire thread and collect the information from the various posts. Hopefully the OP (Tookeri) will see it and paste it into the original post as leaving it the middle of a thread makes it less useful. As someone who mas managed web forums going back almost 24 years, I'd rather not start a new thread and clutter the board with a duplicate topic.

I understand the concept and value of updating the OP. I just provided info indicating the likelihood of such an update.

If you do end up working your way thru this thread, you will see that different members think that different updates should be considered as "W10 updates". I doubt that Tookeri is going to try and create an authoritative list. Doing so could alienate someone.

If your goal is to avoid changing to W10, then you can just tell W7 not to do so.

If you are afraid of telemetry, then happy hunting for the offending updates.

A number of posters have been sharing (and updating) their own lists of MS updates they avoid. Here's two of them:
Also, if you're not familiar with it, GWX Control Panel is worth a look.

The link I gave will take you to an information page for GWX Control Panel.
It is worth reading the information about the program and what it does.
It in particular handles deleting files already downloaded and ready to install without any permissions problems.
It will ask for Administrator permission only when required to handle certain tasks.
If you do not want Windows 10 the program will allow you to stop it.

I run it after windows updates to make sure it is not set to upgrade against my will.
Download the program, run it and fix your situation.

Good luck!

It is free
It works very well and will do the following:

1/ Remove the "Get Windows 10" icon
2/ It will disable Windows 10 updates
3/ Prevent your computer from secretly downloading Windows 10 installation files
4/ Detect and remove the hidden Windows 10 installation files if they're already on your PC

windows 7 professional 64 bit

Hello, this GWX Control Panel is VERY INTERESTING.

I have so problems ( as far as I know ) with this Windows 10 update ( secretly upgrade ) and definitely don't want Windows 10 on my laptop.

Should I use this GWX Control Panel, just to be 100 % on the safe side ?
