    Already have Win 10 how to stop ads to download it on Win 7 ?

    I've had Win 7 for years and won't change, but recently bought Win 10 Lenovo to gradually make Win 7 as back up.

    I know why Microsoft are pushing Win 10 to users of Win 7, but lately they're becoming much more pushy making it only too easy to download it by mistake and all the ensuing likely hassles to try and bring back Win 7 again.

    Where or who do I contact to stop sending these wretched download Win 10 ads ?
