Windows 7: KB3035583 Reappeared After Being Hidden

Looking through the remaining optional updates, I've also got KB2952664, KB2999226, KB3080079 and KB3083710.
Are these patches "safe" to install for those of us who don't want to upgrade to Windows 10?

The version of the update that you hid did not unhide itself. A new version was offered.

I realize that the end result is the same... but it might be worth knowing what really happened.
that would suggest they have made 4 patches so far then.. because ive hidden this update every day since my last post (lve just hidden the update yet again), lm curious as to when it will stop appearing.

There have been 6 versions:

Source.


If you end up hiding it more than 6 times, then you should start your own thread an see if forum members can help you figure out why.

Wixi, timeless,

You can stop the installation of W10 via registry entries. Then you don't need to hide any updates.

If telemetry is the concern, then that should be stated and not lumped in with the recurring appearance of the main KB for the W10 offer.

Thanks UsernameIssues,

A few months ago I made a small change to the Windows Update registry under the guidance of a forum admin. Since them, the "Get Windows 10" icon hasn't reappeared, so I'm hoping that means Windows 10 won't try to install in future. If KB3035583 was installed after editing the registry, would Windows 10 still try to install?

I'm not sure which changes you made to the registry - so I cannot say for sure what the result should be.

I have made these changes on a few computers:

Code:
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\GWX]
"DisableGWX"=dword:00000001

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WindowsUpdate\OSUpgrade]
"AllowOSUpgrade"=dword:00000000
"ReservationsAllowed"=dword:00000000

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate]
"DisableOSUpgrade"=dword:00000001
KB3035583 is installed on those computers. There is no offer to get W10 in the notification area and no offer via Windows Update screens.

That said, I made these changes before version 6 of KB3035583 was released. The computers did not re-install KB3035583 again. If you are willing, you can make those changes to your computer, let version 6 of KB3035583 install and let us know the results.

Some policy related settings will work on all versions of Windows 7... even versions that do not have gpedit. I have not tested the settings mentioned above on all versions of Windows 7.

I can no longer hide these updates on my W7 Machine. The ones I hid before no longer appear in the restore list. Now my W8.1 laptop will no longer allow me to hide them either. Wish there was an option, "Do you want to install W10 on this machine" YES/NO and be done with it.

As far as Microsoft is concerned there is only one "right" answer.
