Windows 10 upgrade

I am currently using Windows 7 and I was offered a free download Windows 10 and because of circumstances and I am using a dongle I can't afford the download how do I delete? it as I saw the size of the mb how long does it take to download? When I did a Windows update I did start to download but I saw the mb and thought it would take to long to download. With dongle credit is limited.

Windows 10 Reserve

Today, while checking for new updates, the Windows 10 page appeared and i accidentally clicked on the "Reserve" button. I have not installed Window 10 yet. Is there a KB I should look for and uninstall or use the link as suggested by Brink?

Thanks for the responses and I will try both suggestions and will look out for the KB. I have noticed when closing down the Windows update has been starting automatically even though I clicked on stop. Also will look out for the reserved button. Thanks!
