I want nothing to do with a Upgrade of Windows 7.
You can also do what many of us do with a KB in question. Google it and read about it.

These three appear in the list of not invited(http://www.sevenforums.com/general-d...ows-7-8-a.html).

But better wait for the answer from the experts.

Hi,
Here's the settings suggested to use by LayBackBear and I agree,
Attachment 370245

After that you should see each update,
Right click the undesirable update and click on Hide.
Should be all it takes.

Hi,
I have Office 2007 so that box makes sure Office updates are offered as well as windows updates,
I would Uncheck give me recommended updates the same way..,
That way all recommended updates are listed in the Optional section instead of the Important section.
All of these win-10 updates started out as recommended/ Optional
Later M$ moved or reclassified 1 or 2 as important just to keep people on their toes

Hi what happens if you click on the link there that says Show all available updates ?
If it shows win-10 right click it and select Hide.
