    You'll need group policy editor for that Thelma, that's not available in 7 home.

    Use the registry setting at the bottom of this post:

    There have been a few different versions of KB2952664. I have noticed a few people saying they needed to remove it more than once.

    New one to add to the list https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/3102810

    Windows update client update/10 installer (although they haven't labelled it as such this time, sneaky buggers!). Was optional but now classed as Important.

    I see nothing to indicate that this update is a "10 installer". It merely says that it fixes high CPU usage when installing the W10 update. For all we know, this patch fixes high CPU usage when installing other updates too.

    It has exactly the same files as the previous Windows update client versions just newer versions.
    This is one of the files, they've just worded the update differently.

    If your definition of a "10 installer" is any WU client that is capable of installing W10, then fine: don't install any of the newer ones. I was thinking of "10 installer" as some update that installs W10 without the user agreeing to same.

    I would expect that library file to be updated each time - especially for an update that claims to have fixed a CPU usage issue during the W10 update process. I have installed each WU client update as they are released and I have yet to be offered W10, much less have it auto-install.

    OK a 10 downloader would be probably be more accurate then. There has yet to be an actual "10 update" which doesn't require user intervention, that's true.
    These are also the updates which add the group policy option to block it from downloading.
    Either way, if people don't want 10 then can choose to ignore the updates or set the Group Policy. I have them installed with the group policy set. Some people may not want them at all if they're avoiding all 10 updates.

    Apparently, I oversee more computers that I can keep up with. I found one yesterday that I had not set the registry to prevent offering the user W10. Disk Cleanup took way too long to get rid of the 6GB of W10 files and the other stuff that it did :-(

    6GB oooof! Imagine that if someone is on a limited data allowance!
    How many computers are you dealing with UNI?
    It's becoming a pain... Group Policies, Reg Settings, changing from Optional to Recommended, various different updates to look out for.

    Not trying to push it very hard are they?
