    drugo,

    If you mean that you don't have Group Policy in Windows 7, then only the Professional, Ultimate, and Enterprise editions include Group Policy.

    It should be there just like in the screenshot of Windows 7 I just took below. Double check to make sure that you have the correct path of folders expanded open.

    I'm guessing you are monitoring your updates? That option needs to have the updated WU client mentioned here


    https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/3080351


    Group Policy

    Microsoft has released new updates to enable you to block upgrades to Windows 10 through Windows Update. These updates install a new Group Policy Setting. Computers that have this Group Policy Setting enabled will never detect, download, or install an upgrade to the latest version of Windows.

    To obtain and install these updates, go to the following Microsoft Knowledge Base articles:

    3065987 Windows Update Client for Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2: July 2015
    3065988 Windows Update Client for Windows 8.1 and Windows Server 2012 R2: July 2015
    To configure this Group Policy Setting by using Group Policy, the following conditions apply:


    • The appropriate update must be installed.
    • You must use the updated WindowsUpdate.admx file by copying the file from the editing policy location.
    That was in the blue information box on the first page of the tutorial.

    You're welcome, honestly I don't remember, I'm sure it was at least recommended.

    So depending on your update settings it could have been in the optional section if that were the case.

    That is what's needed to have that option added in Group Policy though.

    If you don't want to install the updates you can just use option one,

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

    The .reg file that does the same thing.
