Windows 7: How to remove Windows 10 upgrade updates in Windows 7 and 8

I changed the Update Settings to "Never check for updates", uninstalled KB2952664 again. It disappeared but after restart there it is showing up as installed? It looks as if it is reinstalling right away. Can that be possible with Update settings set to Never?

That's weird, I had no problem uninstalling that update months ago. It worked first time. I know there have been a few revisions to that update. How many times have you tried uninstalling it?

Wow, that's one persistent little bugger. Really can't understand why it's not uninstalling. Have you excluded the other updates on this list? Maybe there's another one preventing it being uninstalled?

Never check for updates = should never actually be used you have MSE

But regardless Ask before downloading and installing updates is harmless
So is unchecking Give me recommended updates the same as Important updates.

It sounds like your user account is not the only one on this machine ?
That update is only one of several win-10 preparations updates.

I set it back to "Download updates & let me choose", the Never was just to try & keep KB2952664 off. "Give me recommended updates the same as Important updates" is unchecked.
This is my laptop & only has one user account. But the same Action Center msg is on the desktop. Something has changed recently.

Still concerned that am unable to remove KB2952664. Believe I have hidden this update on several occasions, there must be several iterations of KB2952664.

edit:
Have also hidden KB3035583, KB3068708

Well I don't know what's going on, KB2952664 does show up under Hidden Updates but also shows up in Installed Updates with today's date.
I give up. Going to go do something easier like build a photon accelerator in my garage.

Edit:
Same on desktop - KB2952664 shows installed on 7/29 but is also Hidden.

Maybe that's the best thing to do & just set updates to auto, then all is fixed

Edit:
I unhid KB2952664, installed again & set Updates to Auto (Action Center all good this way). "Give me recommended updates the same as Important updates" is unchecked. If this is the way MS wants to run things OK. The Linux operating system I donated $16 to Canonical for just runs. Never a problem

thank you
Because MS is afraid of another Win 8 debacle and is using every trick it can think of to ensure the installation figures for Win 10 look as good as possible and avoid having it appear to be another embarrassing flop like Win 8 was. It also wants to gain as much control over how you compute as possible, the hell with what anyone may actually want, much like Apple has done.
