Windows 7: prevent Windows 10 pop ups

prevent Windows 10 pop ups

I understand I can prevent Windows 10 pop ups by cancelling the Upgrade KB 5583 but first I need to
cancel automatic updates and tick manual updates. Can someone please tell me where to find place to choose between automatic and manual updating on Windows 7

Thanks

Thanks. I have disabled automatic update replacing it with notify me before updating. I am very nervous of interfering with the registry but I have found the Windows Update entry under HKEY LOCAL MACHINE. It gives me the following
entry ab Default REG_SZ value not set. Default is in a box.

Exactly which part of the following do I enter in the Default box please ?
"DisableOSUpgrade"=dword:00000001

Sorry to trouble you again but heeding the dire warnings against meddling with the registry if you don`t know what you`re doing !

Hi,
You should of used Option 1 here's bat file download to your Desktop and right click it and select Merge as the instructions state
Upgrade to Windows 10 Update - Enable or Disable in Windows 7 or 8.1 - Windows 10 Forums

After reviewing this
Windows Update Settings - Change
I would not be using Notify but I would be set with these settings
prevent Windows 10 pop ups-update-settings.jpg

You can use either of these too
