Yep worth a shot a lot easier than a clean install unless you want to also upgrade to a ssd as well
Then a clean install is best.

I download to the desktop. Clicked on and hit Merge, computer asked me two questions, I clicked yes to both.

Rebooted, and went to updates, clicked on a couple to try, and low and behold, Windows 10 still there trying to download..

Whats next..

Ron,

Go ahead and post a screenshot showing this in Windows Update to see if it may be for something else than what the tutorial is for.

Hi,
I guess the screen shot of the install ?
Otherwise look at killing the install process with task manager by right clicking your taskbar and opening it,
Services section and scroll the list for the prior entries GWX.exe to stop.
Code:
You must disable GWX.exe services/processes from within task manager

It should be of Windows Update showing "Windows 10 still there trying to download..".

GWX.exe is not in the Services of the Task Bar..

Sounds like it should be listed in processes if 10 is installing :/
Processes section,
If not listed there on the bottom left click on Show processes for all users and look there too.
