In windows update I uncheck the windows 10 upgrade then right click on it and chose hide update ... that's what I did. Hope this helped.

Unfortunately, I can't get a list to uncheck "Window 10 Upgrade". Your post made me realize I had attempted to add an attachment as a .mht file. I have corrected that and made it a .pdf file and it is now viewable. What you see in the attachment is the only thing I have in "Windows Update". I've included it here as well.

Sorry that didn't help ... how about taking your PC back a couple of restore points? Usually your computer makes a restore point before it installs important updates. You could at least check it out.
