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

There are various reasons I can't take pain meds (other than very occasionally). I'm on a 81mg twice daily aspirin regimen so I can't take any more aspirin. Because of the aspirin regimen, I'm not supposed to take NSAIDs (ibuprofen, etc.) except once in a blue moon and then I have to make sure it is with a full meal and is no more than 200mg.

Because of other meds I'm on, I can't take acetaminophen to avoid overstressing my liver. I have to have semiannual blood work to make sure my liver and kidneys are still functioning alright.

I'm subject to motion sickness so any pain meds that make the least bit dizzy will make me nauseated, which is worse for me than most pain. That rules out any pain meds stronger than ibuprofen.

I can't have codeine because it causes severe depression.

Windows 10 upgrade push changes things for IT pros and bootleggers

"You can still downgrade afterwards if it's not to your liking, but expect the push to get more aggressive going forward."

Ridiculous if true.

Looks like it is true

I thought after Microsoft mistakenly( I wonder) checked an upgraded boxed, they would learn not to do it again. That is not going to help those that dual or triple boot or computers that cant be upgrade to windows 10.

I never thought I would say these words. I wish I had Vista with the latest service pack, I heard it is really close to windows 7.

Vista with SP2 is as good as W7. I had it until recently, when I accidentally overwrote it installing Linux. Seriously considered reinstalling it, but bringing it up to date was just too much, considering it's EOL is less than 1.5 years away. (No, I didn't have an image. I mean I did, but that also got wiped out. No big deal).

Hi Lee, happen to find your list in this thread, briljant I have them all hidden except two KB 2977759 and 3075851
I will look next if they have been installed.

And I have some you don't have ( sounds like a game of cards )

KB 2970228
KB 2592687
KB 2506928
KB 2726535
KB 2994023
KB 2545698
KB 3080149
KB 2999226
KB 3083710
KB 3097966
KB 3095649

Perhaps they are all Skype related ?

PS I am dyslexic so may have put one you already have.

I tend to install most updates Thelma, unless it's Windows 10 related or the new telemetry updates, I can't see any need for these on my system as I have no intention of upgrading to 10.

Optional updates like time zone or currency updates, I just install. Like to keep my exclude list to a minimum.
Unless it's a buggy update, but so far I haven't really run into any issues with any.

Nobody seems to know. See:

Don?t check that box! Windows 7 patch KB 3083324 sneaks in | InfoWorld

However all I can say is that removing KB3083324 along with all updates listed below and force installing KB3075851 after resetting Windows Update Components and running Advanced Disk Cleanup (including Windows Updates Cleanup) solved the high RAM usage issue (by svchost.exe) that many users are reporting when running a windows update check.

wusa /uninstall /kb:3080149 /quiet /norestart
Note: I also chose to reinstall KB971033 (in the above list) after everything started working normally.
This is still a pretty accurate list Thelma
With the exclusion of this kb:971033 which is not win-10 related.
Added kb:3112343 to the list

Also, KB2977759 is the same update as KB2952664 (telemetry nonsense). The first one is pushed to 7 RTM (without SP1), the second is for SP1. So you'll probably only have one or the other. Why they didn't just make this one update I'm not sure.
