    Thank you so much for posting this it's just what I've been looking for to stop this bombardment of 'Get Win 10'.
    I was so happy about this information that I just had to join up to tell you, so thanks again.

    Options anyone? I just got word in that Neosmart Technologies well known for the EasyBCD app and recovery disk images has a One-click Windows 10 rollback utility. Even for those who are trying to get 10 on but end up with a failed upgrade can used this to roll back to the previous version if not build apparently.

    This would be for those who didn't see the guide here in time however as well as for those seeing failed upgrade attempts. Otherwise the steps outlined here have been found to be the most effective in preventing 10 from replacing the previous version's installation. With two systems each seeing 10/7 dual boots the guide here has been put to the test to see those results.

    The blog page for this one can be looked over at A utility for fast, free, and simple Windows 10 uninstallation That can be passed along to anyone who doesn't want you to touch their machine but still doesn't want 10 going on.

    Hello Night Hawk,

    They should be able to just use the built-in "Go back to previous Windows" feature in Windows 10 to do so instead of using 3rd party software.

    Feel free to add that as well as the guide here into my sig anytime! As you know anyone who would come here looking for help will follow the steps in the guides here. Option One being mainly intended for rolling back to a previous Insider Preview build while Option Two for going back to the previous version when things are still left intact like the Windows.old folder

    The app there is mainly something you would toss at others on the other hand who wouldn't and won't allow you to make any changes on their machines when offered at all and might otherwise look out in the wild for lazy "quick and easy" solutions and possibly end up being bug bombed with something malware laced.

    (know a few hard heads like that until they get hit with something and suddenly want help. Keep telling them the 10 app can be removed but.. )

    Hi Shawn,

    I have a friend whose Windows 10 upgrade is scheduled, but she's just found out that her copy of Windows 7 was installed on a volume licence, so she isn't eligible for the upgrade.

    Would this tutorial be the best way for her to get rid of the W10 upgrade and also stop it bothering her in the future?

    Thanks

    Hello Maggy,

    If it's scheduled to be downloaded and installed, then it should. Be sure to also disable the GWX icon.

    Seeing the 10 app removed entirely also entails hiding the next check for updates and after a few more checks when the same update number will appear again even after the initial hide. With 10/7 dual boot going here I have to keep watch while in the 7 on two machines while also having seen the upgrade feature disabled following the guide here. So far no reappearance of the 10 app has been seen.
