Please help me get rid of the Windows 10 upgrade


I have the Upgrade to Windows 10 update that has appeared in my windows update panel, also if i accidentally click on Shutdown it will install windows 10. i have managed to get rid of the KB3035583 update so the icon has now disappeared from the task bar, But how do i get rid of this update in my windows update panel and stop it appearing again.

I do not want Windows 10 and wish to stay with my Windows 7 pro, so would really appreciate help as i really do not wish to make a mistake and click on the shutdown and install it by mistake. Please help :)

What I do is pretty simple.

Go to Change Settings, (upper left (See your picture)

You need to use

Check for updates but let me choose whether to download and install them.
Restart your computer.

As per your picture/ Go to the lower left corner of that picture and tick on Installed Updates.
Then in the Search Control panel (upper right) type in the KB you want to remove.
Right Tick on the KB when shown and select to remove.

Restart computer.
Search for Windows 7 Updates again.
The update you remove will be offered again. Right tick on it and select Hide.

Do it with one KB you want to remove for a test.

Get back to us on the results.

PS. We were all computer numpty at one time.
Members on this forum will guide you and with time you will learn a lot.
The big thing is to follow instruction and if they are confusing, just ask for more help.
