Windows 7: Windows Technical Preview

Windows Technical Preview

I'm on Windows 7 x64 and Windows Update keeps pushing Windows Technical Preview for me to update to. I keep right-clicking and 'hide update' but still pushes it to my update. The Published date has gone backwards from Sept 30th, 23rd, 16th, 9th 2nd, August 26th. Has this been happening with anyone else or is there a fix from having it push this update to me?

Hello spook,

That would be just a normal recommended Windows Update to install for Windows 7 instead.

It's not for the Windows 10 Technical Preview. That has to be manually downloaded and installed. :)

I understand that. I have Win 10 on Vbox to preview and have been using on and off for the past few days. even on this screen it says "Install a preview of the next version of Windows. 2,668.6 MB" and a link that send me here. So confused...

Is there a way to get the download & install the OS w/o having a Microsoft ID? I want to try out the OS, but I don't want to be forced to use a Microsoft Account or be connected to SkyNet ... I mean OneDrive (that could be bypassed in 8 Here & Here).
