If it shows win-10 right click it and select Hide.
Get Windows 10 app - Cancel Reservation for Free Upgrade to Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums

Get Windows 10 Icon - Remove from Taskbar in Windows 7 and 8.1 - Windows 10 Forums
I can't cancel the Reservation because I removed the "Get Windows 10" icon and hid KB3035583.

The last item is interesting because sometimes I've seen the "install updates/shutdown message" after a failed Win10 upgrade attempt and sometimes not - today for instance.

I'm including my current List of Optional Updates.

It would now seem that changing the WU options has made a difference.
It has not tried to upgrade to Windows 10 for 3 days.
I'll continue to keep an eye on it.
Thanks.
