I did both having seen the new reg key created as well as the upgrade policy disabled. The KB3035583 update is the one to hide for the Get 10 app once that shows up in the Optional updates on most systems. Right click on it to select hide and that won't reappear on you.

So far on the 7 installs on two machines none of the Get 10 stuff has returned while I never leave any Windows set for full automatic anyways. I don't being right in the middle of something and the system suddenly restarts on it's own!

Got the retail tags for both Home and Pro but will wait until next July to upgrade the free 10 installs presently seen. You buy through the MS online store no longer seeing retail cartons out on store shelves for the time being. Same price for usb flash drive per version as you would pay for the download. Home $119.99 Pro $199.99 This is only for anyone who is either presently trying 10 out or will be wanting to upgrade sometime.

Hmm Night Hawk that is how I set my updates and why I asked I am awaiting the next load of updates.

I was pretty remiss not going through my updates before I installed them and not deleting them once in there update list and am now stuck.

Seems like I might have to do a reinstall on my other two desktops and three laptops not a pleasant prospect but if need be I will if just to get rid of the GWX. Personally I think it is an invasion of my right to personal preferences that Microsoft can stop one from deleting that particular entry

I've had a ton of the usual Important as well as several optional updates go on since I hid that one by itself and not one Get 10 anything has been seen since! The app is simply to get people to reserve their copy of 10 which when clicked on September 1st suddenly displayed 10 was ready to be downloaded when having reserved it back in either late June early July when the app first appeared.

A little too late since all flavors of 10 had already been downloaded and even running 10 on a VM was seen here.

I will say 10 runs a lot like 7 despite the new tiles in the returned Start menu. The Stardock $5 Start Menu 10 provides the 7, Modern, or 10 Style Start menu with the 3rd party app there. But those two guides as well as hiding the 10 app update will prevent any unintended upgrade to 10 from being seen on any 7, 8, o 8.1 install presently on.

In fact I have to run the latest manual check once again for updates on 7 since I have been going over things in 10 for quite a bit of time now getting a good lookover while still planning to keep 7 running. I was pricing the editions for multiple pcs since a few friends would only buy the full retail wanting their own media while things are going to be changing with 10! When 7 gets retired I will be right up there close to the mandatory retirement age so 7 still fits the bill here while I still wanted to look at what 10 was bringing in with it.(besides tablet and mobile that is!)

Me too I expect I will be past doing much anyway as the fire has turned into a pile of embers as far as I am concerned.

I just don't like those panels I mean how easy was it to find Control Panel and such?? I just reckon it is the best OS they have come up with including that XP which I think was ok but pretty geriatric. The 8 to me was a debacle ok for the touchy feely types but there again perhaps I ma too old fashioned even the phone gives me the trots.

10 has some rather interesting new features being an updated OS that are not something to scuff at by any means. I think the 8 debacle was mostly due to how MS was introducing dual platforms without first working out the details and simply going ahead and stripping the most commonly things out of the OS entirely leaving 8 to be nothing more then a bulletin board for MS apps!

10 sees improvements in the Virtualization area as well as for increased touchscreen support not just for tablet and mobile but improved overall for the desktop as well. The boot loader problem resulting in volumes of disk errors when trying the 8 CP out along side 7 hasn't been seen in any form with 10.

As for the Classic type of Control Panel you still see that for the time being but may not with what comes after 10! As one blogger puts it MS wants to do away with the old panels to suit the newer GUI designs. But this is also understandable while the transition shouldn't simply be a rush job like 8 was for tablet and mobile!

The only problem someone has asked about presently is not hiding updates but finding and installing them separately since not many are even out yet for 10. No slipstreaming them quite yet as you still see for 7. What the 10 installer does do however is find most of everything for you during the installation that previous versions always needed to wait for.

If you were preparing for a clean install you would first download and save all of the updates and driver sets for everything. With 10 you may have to look at what support options are available for some things due to 10 being the brand new just out OS there. People had to use Vista x64 driver sets while waiting for 7's to first appear being no biggie. But presently 7 has been time tested and still has the reigns for the time being at least!

Hide or updates ? Perhaps better leave it set there ?

I was offered this KB 3035583 again today, for I think the 7 Th time now.

Been hiding it for 6 times now. That does not seam to do the trick. Now I am just gonna leave it and see what happens text time.

Perhaps I will end up with a hole series of KB 3035583's waiting, sitting there doing nothing

Bloody boring

I simply right clicked on it once it showed up on the next check following seeing it uninstalled. So far no return listing for it while it remains in the hidden from view listing there. That's the separate area that has been another update hidden away now for quite some time I'd say close to 5yrs. now! So never say never!

Me thinkest me speakest toooooooo soonest ??? See for yourself!

Hello Thelma I got sent this and another tutorial by Brink Windows Update Automatic Updates - Enable or Disable in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums the other tutorial was almost the same and I applied the fixes to a reinstall I was doing and as yet nothing has come up and the one time that KB3035533 did I hid it and haven't seen it since - might be worth a try,

hiding updates

Hi John, yes I read through that tutorial of Brink ( that's how I ended up on this thread ) and I was thinking of doing the change in services, which is the easy one, but then ..............I like to see what they are doing.

So I have written down my hidden updates on a piece of paper and every time now when I am offered new updates I go to my hidden list and see if they are offering them again. This KB 3035583 is at the moment 3 x on my hidden list so some have disappeared, there should be 6.

Also now that I have written them down I can see if others are disappearing.

And of coarse I also have the now FAMOUS LIST of the NEVER TO INSTALL UPDATES IF YOU DON'T WANT ANYTHING TO DO WITH WINDOWS 10

I like to think that I am still in charge of it all

We will see

10 isn't a bad OS once you have spend some time with it in comparison to the 8 Flop! It actually does run quite a bit like 7 only seeing updated features and support for newer things. You have to remember that 10 is also three versions newer then 7 so you would obviously need to expect to see changes!

Now for yesterday's failed upgrade attempt I went in to check to see what was new if anything and guess what? The Notorious KB3035583 update was back! Somehow after so long it "unhides" itself somehow or is triggered to do that somehow once something goes on passed off as a security update? The list of 10 updates with one in particular is seen here.
