@ Squirtmurph

Run the Disk Clean up tool and select the Clean up system files after the initial scan. Select the Temporary installation files for deletion. Once they are removed reboot your system and then check for Windows Updates once again.

Disk Cleanup : Extended

You must run this with admin rights and you must select Temporary Windows Installation files for deletion.

When/If KB3035583 and/or the Windows 10 Upgrade are offered just hide those updates.

Why do you get the upgrade? Either you reserved it or else you have allowed some Windows Update to install that initiated the Windows 10 download.

I have been ignoring Windows 10. I finally decided to read part this 600 reply thread and just curious. Are the posters on here saying that they are getting Windows 10 Updates and sometimes having it install? No, I checked mine and nothing is there except Windows 7. I don't know but this sounds like Chicken Little, "The Sky is Falling, The Sky is Falling". Have I misunderstood this thread?

I just checked and all of the "I'm gonna install Windows 10 which is loaded on your computer hard drive".

Still fighting to keep it off.

It's likely that the core problem is that many Windows 7/8/8.1 users have been caught unaware by MS's push of W10-related updates... which began back in February... and has been exacerbated by:
  • varying levels of understanding of the Windows Update process
  • Windows Update being set to "Automatic"
  • Windows Update being set to "Give me recommended updates the same way I received important updates"
Like you, I've also wondered about what some posters are experiencing. I suspect the confusion could be the result of "freak-out in progress" posts... due to being caught off-guard by... and subsequently not understanding what's going on, and especially, what they can do about it.

Unless they're tech-savy enough to be regularly taking images of their system partition...
I've simply been telling everyone I help to:
  1. Uncheck the box so that "Recommended" updates will appear in the "Optional" section;
  2. Install and run GWX Control Panel in order to disable the "Get Windows 10" process; and
  3. Rerun it after every time that Windows Update runs.

As for myself, I've got a GWX-free system... all the "offending" Win10-related updates have been hidden:
  • "Win7 SP1 Performance Improvements when the latest Windows OS is installed" (Feb: KB3021917)
  • "Get Windows 10" app (KB3035583)
  • Windows Update Client "improvements" (starting in April with KB2990214; + all that followed); and
  • all the Telemetry-enabling updates as well.

Have you tried using GWX Control Panel?

It's much simpler than uninstalling the various W10-related updates that a number of posters in this thread have listed.

Yep, seems to work for most of us.
