    Here's a registry patch for Windows 7 to completely hide the "Get Windows 10" icon from the taskbar. Also, I founded this in a Maximum PC magazine. Also, when downloading the registry file, the web browser would think that it's harmful, but it's actually not harmful. Just click "keep", or something similar to that.

    As far as I know that file only works on 32bit windows. In Wow6432Node 64bit Windows 7 also needs:

    Code:
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate]
    "DisableOSUpgrade"=dword:00000001
    
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate\AU]
    "NoAutoUpdate"=dword:00000000
    "AUOptions"=dword:00000002
    "DisableOSUpgrade"=dword:00000001
    and

    Code:
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\GWX]
    "DisableGwx"=dword:00000001

    Hi Helel,

    If you want the WU client update installed, you only need the latest as they replace the earlier versions anyway. KB3138612 or the June update rollup will give you the latest.

    Hope that helps?
    Well, since I'm using WU to update my Windows, I think it's a good thing to have it updated, right?)
    Thanks for reply!

    Patches containing W10 are always those that are classified as Optional and Recommended.


    I read that several users have decided to postpone the patch KB3159398 for certain problems that it causes :
    https://community.spiceworks.com/top...3159398?page=1
    From what I've tried to understand it is that the patch does show hidden files that are restricted to other users, change permissions or something like that. And that is inconvenient for business/office users. Or for home users also affect? Frankly I do not know what it is that GPO and if I'm wrong could explain me it exactly what the trouble with this patch.

    From what I've read, if you're using a standalone home PC which isn't connected to a Domain then the update won't cause any issues (hopefully). I believe it only affects systems which are joined to Domains.

    GPO means Group Policy Objects, these are set using the Group Policy Editor (gpedit.msc).

    That means that affects those who handle or are connected to some web pages(Business way). Right ?

    I do not think so, I'm not connected to any domain. I'm just a basic / standard user.

    Then that update shouldn't cause any issues on your system.

    I have not yet installed the patch. But if really affects for those who are connected domain, then it would not affect me at all(home users).
    Doing a quick search to know something about that "domain" is I found this : What is a Windows Domain and How Does It Affect My PC? I only see GROUP WORK.
