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

On another note about win-10 pro last round,
I transferred some files to a hdd to add to 10 pro
Fast start was of course disabled in win-10 so I shut down in win-10 with Win+X power shut down as usual.

I just connected the drive and win-7 showed the 80gb drive partition as Raw and has to be formatted before use :/
So it seems win-10 is still messing with secondary drives and not in a good way either
Before during testing 7 would prompt to initialize the drive = check disk this time it's raw Oh boy
Fortunately of course nothing important was lost but still win-10 is in the unreliable category for sharing drives.

Agreed.

Windows Update offered me an update for my Fresco Logic USB 3 driver.
After installing it, all of my USB 2 and USB 3 ports stopped working.

Currently WU is offering me updates for a Brother multifunction printer and NVidia graphics card.

With the exception of an Intel graphics driver update, every graphics driver update I've installed has lowered my WEI score, so I don't install them any more (via Windows Update or from the manufacturers website).

Don't know if this will help for raw drives

Thanks I have a better policy
Don't share drives with win-10 and expect the files to still be there
Expect to reformat every time and be surprised if you don't have to format the drive again.
Some thing I already knew

There has been a definite change in the implementation of KB3035553, issued on Jan 1st 2016. Uninstalling the update makes the system fail at an early stage, sometimes the taskbar is irresponsive, sometimes a browser will not connect. System Restore fails. It looks as if we accept the update or have to restore a full system backup.

Whoops! I mistyped - that should have been KB3035583. Good to know someone's reading anyway.

I can vouch for what Microsoft is doing to the Windows 7 OS users. This morning, MS decided to declare WAR on my and wife's computers. Both of our mouse's are "pulsating/vibrating" so badly we can hardly hold them in hand. Now, you might ask, why would both start this on both.. a Dell laptop with Windows 7 Home, and my HP with Windows 7 Home....on same day/time. It's not a hardware situation, as I have another HP PC with Windows 7 Professional, and it's not doing this gyration thing.
