    That KB # is to allow you to install Windows 10.

    I would not install it if you do not want to install over Windows 7 right now.

    Where is the ISO file located ?

    I haven't completely downloaded the ISO file yet.
    But once it dones all I got to do is burn it onto the DVD.

    Anyway it not giving me the option to remove it from Windows update. Is it safe to restart my PC and then remove the update?

    Yes,it's safe to restart your PC.

    If you have enough room on your HDD , you could dual boot
    both OS on the same HDD.

    I did just that and it works perfectly.

    Follow the instructions carefully from this link and you should be good to go in about

    Yep, that will install the TP through a windows update, I came across that blunder too, all you have to do is remove that last update and Windows 7 will be fine again. It let me remove it no problem. You have to delete the executable file you downloaded, if you haven`t changed anything, it should still be in your downloads folder.

    You want the iSO from here.

    You always want to boot the installer to deliberately choose your partition from the drive map shown during install. This requires burning the ISO to disk using Windows Download tool or ImgBurn at 4x speed.

    Running the installer from existing OS risks overwriting it and gives you no drive options to create and format your partitions, locks out the C drive letter so the installer won't automatically assign that letter to the new install.

    The Dual Boot tutorial shows you how to shrink C in Disk Mgmt to make the space to choose during install for Windows 10, format and click Next to begin install.
