Windows 7: How to stick with Windows 7 and not be forced to Windows 10?

29 Oct 2015   #11

Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit 6.1 Build 7601 (SP1)

Your list begs a question. Re: for example 3167760, which is "improvements to WU client" for both W7 and Server 2008.

How can you be sure this is a W10 issue--W10 is not an upgrade path at all from Server 2008 is it??? If it is NOT, then it seems to me one could look at any updates that are also for Server OSes as "safe, not W10 prep" type updates.
