Windows 7: Which MS updates will install Windows 10?

Which MS updates will install Windows 10?

I currently have my Windows Update set to "Check for updates, but let me choose whether to download and install" so I can avoid any updates having to do with windows 10, which I do not want. I know about KB3035583, but a month or so ago, I came across another KB update that had a vague description. I researched it first and discovered that it was for the Win10 installation. I know MS is trying various methods to get Win7 users to install Win10, but I would like to know if there is a list of MS updates to avoid, so I can continue with Win7, until I decide otherwise.

Thanks. Jane

Hello Jane,

There's no need to worry about which updates to install or not. You can use the tutorials below to disable the "upgrade to Windows 10" update and the GWX10 icon to not have to worry about it. :)

Upgrade to Windows 10 Update - Enable or Disable in Windows 7 or 8.1 - Windows 10 Forums

Get Windows 10 Icon - Remove from Taskbar in Windows 7 and 8.1 - Windows 10 Forums

Yes there are many lists of 10 related updates all of which so far have been Recommended/ Optional,
Except for kb3112343 which was Important also innocent enough,
There was also one that came packaged with a ie11 new version seems innocent enough though
Beware KB3139929
