Windows 7: Please help with this Windows 10 install problem

Please help with this Windows 10 install problem

I don't have a clue how to get out of this mess so I am asking you experts.

Early this month I gave up to Microsoft's nagging and installed Windows 10 over Windows 7 on another computer and I had nothing but blue screens so I reinstalled Windows 7 which took three days.

Now on another computer I am faced with the attached screen capture and am helpless. I can't install any updates because they want to install Windows 10 and I just don't want it.

If any of you can help it would be greatly appreciated.

Brink, you guys are lifesavers. I cannot tell me how much I appreciate the help you give us.

Installed the .reg file and Windows 10 started to download. Can't remember if I stopped it or it stopped by itself but the end result is that I have my Windows 7 back the way it should be.

I have seen that registry fix on line but I did not trust myself entering it by typing into the registry. This fix was exactly what I needed. I'm sure I will have more questions but that can wait - except I imagine I am safe to enter the file into my other computers, yes?

Thanks again. I am a very happy old guy right now.
