The directions you and someone else gave in this thread did not specify which Administrative Templates to go to so how was I supposed to know which one.

I went to the Administrative Templates in Computer Configuration per your second Word doc. According to your and the other person's original directions, I was supposed to go into System to get to Windows Components yet even your second Word Doc shows them side by side, not one inside the other. What's with that? Still wondering why I got frustrated?

Screw System; I went directly to Windows Components, then opened up Windows Updates. Here is what I got:

Now tell me where the hell is "Turn off the upgrade to the latest version"? Still wondering why I got frustrated?

Holy Crap! I am now wondering if one of the latest updates took it out? You see mine in the screen shots and we are running the same version OS.
Pardon me for asking a dumb question, but you are logged in as admin? I'm ducking my head now!

I am still looking at mine as I am going back and forth with you.

I just counted all 17 available functions on mine and only count 16 available on yours. That sucks.

None of the recent updates took this* option out.

The more likely answer is:
Lady Fitzgerald did not install the update that added this* option.



*Turn off the upgrade to the latest version of Windows through Windows Update

That's what I'm starting to think. I've been pretty religious about avoid the Win 10 related and spy updates.

As far as I know it is KB3083710 that adds this feature to Group Policy Editor. It is a Windows Update Client Upgrade. Note: Does not work in Windows 7 Home Premium.

Update for Windows 7 for x64-based Systems (KB3083710) replaces the following updates:

Update for Windows 7 for x64-based Systems (KB2990214)
Update for Windows 7 for x64-based Systems (KB2990214)
Update for Windows 7 for x64-based Systems (KB3050265)
Update for Windows 7 for x64-based Systems (KB3065987)
Update for Windows 7 for x64-based Systems (KB3075851)
Update for Windows 7 for x64-based Systems (KB3083324)

This might be the answer. Check to see if update KB3065987 is installed. Supposedly the one that installs that function.

Group Policy

Microsoft has released new updates to enable you to block upgrades to Windows 10 through Windows Update. These updates install a new Group Policy Object. Computers that have this Group Policy Object enabled will never detect, download, or install an upgrade to the latest version of Windows.

To obtain and install these updates, go to the following Microsoft Knowledge Base articles:

3065987 Windows Update Client for Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2: July 2015
3065988 Windows Update Client for Windows 8.1 and Windows Server 2012 R2: July 2015
To configure this Group Policy Object by using Group Policy, the following conditions apply:

  • The appropriate update must be installed.
  • You must use the updated WindowsUpdate.admx file by copying the file from the editing policy location.
Computer Configuration

To block the upgrade by using Computer Configuration, follow these steps

  1. Click Computer Configuration.
  2. Click Policies.
  3. Click Administrative Templates.
  4. Click Windows Components.
  5. Click Windows Update.
  6. Double-click Turn off the upgrade to the latest version of Windows through Windows Update.
  7. Click Enable.
Policy path: Computer Configuration / Administrative Templates / Windows Components / Windows Update Policy
Setting: Turn off the upgrade to the latest version of Windows through Windows Update

I have KB3065987 and do not have KB3083710, not sure which way to say is better.
