Waited a day and tried again, same result ......
Thelma did you go to LOCAL MACHINE > Software > Microsoft > Windows (very first entry) > (open up) > Current version >scroll down to Windows Updates (open it) and that gives you the status of the reg entries see pic
But if you intend doing anything at all in the reg let the tutorials for changing it guide you and please back it up before you do anything see this Registry - Backup and Restore

The link for the tutorial for disabling the 10 upgrade is Upgrade to Windows 10 Update - Enable or Disable in Windows 7 or 8.1 - Windows 10 Forums there is just a simple download of the reg entry that Shawn has provided - if you don't want 10 but have unfortunately installed that wretched KB3035533 in your updates you can check the history but it is tedious. If you haven't and still do not wnat 10 hen just hide the that aprticular update.

Thanks, John for your Reply to my question.

I missed out the CurrentVersion in the line up

And I checked it 3 times ! Never mind, problem solved.

No, I don't have any problems with these Windows 10 upgrade updates, I just wanted to make sure, that's all

Still am gonna cheque this tutorial to see if I was really that stupid to miss that, and I will always first do a backup.

Ok well all's good then and yes the tutorial just has one of those little Download scrolls that Shawn puts in it will tell you it could possibly damage the reg but just follow the prompts.

jalind, give this a look over. I created this after being involved in a couple of threads surrounding the nonsense created after M$ released KB3035583 several times and it kept shoving settings aside and reloading the Win 10 notices. I applied these settings to my own computer over a couple of days of back and forth with other participants in the thread and I have been trouble free. gopher22 was on a separate thread and contacted me last week inquiring about this. I put this into a document that average users could understand and passed it to him today. He contacted me about an hour and half later and said it was pretty easy to follow. Here it is, it only works for Win 7 Pro and above. Home version does not have the reg key to entirely stop M$ pushing through the settings. Good luck and I would appreciate knowing what your thoughts are regarding the ease of following to guide.

Note to all, this does not work with Home editions, only Pro and above.

cyclops mate I know I can access the group policy in Pro and Ultimate but not Hoome version (the reasonung is beyond me) which is why just set updates as I do and then use Shawns upgrade stop.

You are right on wiht problems with the 10 stuff being jammed down our throats and some and you have probably noticed to number of threads posted wit "I upgraded to 10 didn't like it so reverted and now have real issues" I find those a tad hard to deal with apart form suggesting a clean install after thorough clean all.

ICIT2LOL, I am feeling sorry for so many people. It's a damned curse. I won't even shut the power of I put it to sleep and that's as far as I go. I freak out when the lights flicker in my house or the power goes out completely. The f'ing M$ might sneak something in then. My mother bought a new laptop w/10 on it and like most old ladies when they get something new to replace the one that is only 3 years they're happy as kids in a candy shop.

I am now thinking about your circumstance w/ the 2 machines on Home Prem. Istart to wonder if you buy product keys for Pro or Ultimate will the machine and M$ like the taste of it or spit it out? I have a source for things, wink. I have been told by my source, that the iso that I have is generic Win7 and it accepts a key and the key is what determines the version. Do you know about that?

All retail ISO have been like that since Windows 7 release. It's no secret, it's been known for years and is the basis for many installation tutorials here.

Thank for educating me further Golden. I knew if I stayed here for endless hours I'd occupy trillions of little brain cells. Sorry 'bout the sarcasm, it's gettin late and I'm gettin punchy.
Have an awesome day.
