Windows 7: Still have Windows 10 Update Screen

Still have Windows 10 Update Screen

Hey guys, I have adopted a computer that I need to either sell or donate. It has Windows 8.1 on it but I thought I would get far more exposure here. It had the Windows 10 Upgrade on it years ago. The owner or his tech ran GWX from what I understand. But I didn't know this when I got it. I saw this Windows 10 Upgrade window and freaked out and ran "Never10" selecting to remove everything. Now all works really nice, but I still get this stupid Windows 10 Warning come up at every Update Tues, or any update I think. Is there any way to remove that Warning Screen that keeps coming up. I don't bother me but if I sell or donate, it may upset the new owner.

Thanks, Nasty7

It sounds as you have the (KB2976978 - the Windows 8/8.1 nagware patch that touts the Windows 10 upgrade.)
You will find some of the nagging win10 updates in my list
Reinstall Win7 what updates to avoid for telemetry & winX preparation?

Perhaps this KB update is the solution-

Edit:
Did you mean win10 upgrade warning or did you mean win7 end of support?

Wow, guys...fast responses. Thanks very much, I will do this tonight! Sorry I posted in the wrong area.

I would have thought Never10 would take care of all that, but this was run long after GWX Tool was run, and I don't think it was run properly.

Well, I would say post on Eight Forums, but the answer applies equally to W7. Check to see if you have had the update KB3184143. This update is the one that was supposed to remove all that from both W7 and W8.

Wow, there is no download available!

Okay, got it now!

Even though it did not show up in the "show all updates" window, and I did a search, it was already installed.

EDIT: Now I see it in Installed Updates Window.
