Windows 7: How to get rid of "Upgrade to Windows 10" update in Windows 7 updates

How to get rid of "Upgrade to Windows 10" update in Windows 7 updates

I want to stop Windows 10 from installing on my Windows 7 partition.

I already have Windows 10 on another partition. But now in Windows Update I now see "Upgrade to Windows 10". How do I get rid of this and stop the Windows 10 Upgrade in Windows Update from ever appearing again.

I had previously unreserved my Windows 10 upgrade in the Windows 10 notification app, but I guess that didn't work. I'm afraid if I shutdown or restart my Windows 7 installation now the upgrade will occur.

I know this was asked before but I was unclear on exactly what to do. Any replies would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Stuck in Windows 7 session,
Tom

No. I just used the icon to unreserve my copy of Windows 10. I didn't get rid of the icon. I haven't yet uninstalled update kb3035583. Should I try that now, then hide it, and try to reboot?

Hi,
There are quite a few win-10 preparation updates
The .reg file from the prior link addresses all of them I believe,
But yea if it returns just hide it or any other ones that return.

Thanks. I uninstalled updates kb3035583 and kb2952664 and rebooted. Then they were listed as optional updates along with the Windows 10 Upgrade update. Then hid all three.
