cant install win7 updates... only windows 10.

I see win 7 updates available.... when I try to select them to install, it appears that only windows 10 will download and install. so I dont get it. why cant I install only the win7 updates and not 10? I dont want 10.

right-click the update you don't want, choose>hide update
you can also take a look at GWX Control Panel

I click on show all updates, then I select the windows 7 updates I want, then I still have to click "get started" and it wants to install windows 10. this makes no sense to me. I guess that program did not work.
