Windows 7: Why is PC showing "Win 10 update failed" over and over?

11 Aug 2015   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit.
Why is PC showing "Win 10 update failed" over and over?

I don't want it on this PC, nor did I sign up to be notified when it is available, etc.

you should be able to go into the update control panel and choose to ignore the update.

Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit

That seems pretty poor on MS side. Surely if a person has ignored the pop up and not signed up for/reserved the upgrade for Windows 10 then MS has no business trying to automatically download/install it

Makes me worry that it will happen to my machine. I just ignore the pop up, I certainly don't want my machine automatically downloading / attempting to put Windows 10 on when I haven't reserved it
