    Helpful information, thank you.
    You're certainly most welcome!

    I should note that since IE came included in Windows with the exception of the newer releases being downloaded separately for the older versions to see IE gone entirely took a manual edit of the System Registry to track down the correct keys and nothing else was touched. That would then allow a fresh install of the same or newer release of IE or not to have it on at all. This was something only advised for the more experienced users of course.

    Likewise but differently instead the 10 app arrives as a separate update which can be hidden but still needs to be watched out for after a few manual checks for updates are seen following that being uninstalled following identifying it and watching out it doesn't get on again whenever you boot into one of the previous versions. So far however with both desktops each having 10/7 dual boots the guide here has prevented seeing this on the 7 sides.

    MS also made some changes to the 10 app as well from initially reserving the copy to simply seeing the upgrade take place without a deny option. For that other person's pc there however you may want to see a full system image of the drive made in advance and stored on a separate drive in the event the upgrade doesn't go well?!

    Sometimes upgrades can come out real buggy at times! I still have to wonder if the other guide would be the better route as far as seeing a planned clean install take place. Clean Install Windows 10 Directly without having to Upgrade First - Windows 10 Forums

    I also put something else to the test as well but on VM only for those who end up with bad upgrades to manually see a clean install by way of the commonly hidden from view "$Windows~BT" folder found at the root of the C drive following any upgrade to 10 or between 10 builds. At first the option for a direct repair install only was to see the full PC Refresh type option you would end using anyways to clean up after a failed or shaky upgrade install.

    I mention the GenuineTicket.xml option as a potential way to save the previous version activated by volume license status that could be applied to any clean install you might find necessary if you go ahead and allow the upgrade by Windows Updates to proceed. This would be something to consider.

    You'll never guess it in a 100yrs.! A friend out of the blue hands me his laptop and said to get 10 off of his machine namely the 10 app KB3035583 update immediately one of the two "important" updates immediately seen once I got the laptop connected again! Time to disable the OS upgrade option as well. "Option One please!!"

    Verify/Change? DWORD value?


    Hi All,
    I'm new to this forum, but have been a member on SevenForums for a while and came accross this link from there.
    I have a question about whether I have the DWORD value correct in the registry to NOT have the WinX upgrade try to update my computer. I'm not quite ready to make the leap to 10 yet. I know this may sound like a dumb question, but sometimes things sound counter-intuitive to me. Like the DWORD "DisableOSUpgrade" and posted values 0=enable and 1=disable as shown here...

    Here is a snip of my registry after applying the "Disable_Upgrade_to_Windows_10_Update.reg"...

    Could anyone please confirm the this is the correct setting to NOT get Win10 upgrade updates?
    Thanks to Shawn and all the other great people that help in these forums.

    Hello Frogman, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    This is correct to prevent getting the upgrade to Windows 10 update in Windows 7 or 8.

    However, the free upgrade to Windows 10 offer has expired, so you should no longer get the update anyways.

    The 10 app or upgrade assistant can also be removed if that is found now that the initial free promotional offer is over. I had to use the registry value change as well in order to maintain the existing 10/7 dual boots on two separate machines and have been seeing working results thanks the SF guide for that. And glad to see you make over to Ten F from SF! 51Frogman

    Thank you Shawn, really appreciate all the good work you do here. Just wanted to confirm this. I'm not the sharpest tack in the box and sometimes easlily confused... "oh look! there's a squirrel!"

    Hi Night Hawk, thanks for looking in and your suggestions. I haven't had any issues yet with the GWX on my 7 machines. Just getting tired of monitoring WUs like a hawk to avoid them. I do plan on getting 10 sometime in the future for testing, maybe in a dual boot like yours or maybe VM.

    Cheers!

    The "Notorious" GWX or KB303583 update should no longer be any concern anyways since the MS promotional period for the new version ended on the 1st anniversary date for the 2015 launch a year ago. At first the early WU update coming in would be problematic and was later updated with another only lacking the deny option which became a big concern. Fortunately for the work of a certain guide writer however many avoided dispair! I think you know who that is!

    (of course i also like the part there of "being like a hawk" but ... )

    yup Hawkman, it's been a interesting year for sure. Just glad I found these forums for help and knowledge. Wish I'd found this thread sooner!
    Looks like I'm closing the barn door after the horses got out!
