    That's correct Alpha, my works PC has an old Nvidia Quadro card in it for which there isn't a Win 10 compatible driver. It wouldn't let me reserve a copy. I've still left the Win 10 icon in the tray and check ocasionally but it just informs me my PC is not compatible.
    On that same screen it does ask if I want to buy a new PC though
    Just wait a few weeks longer. If you haven't upgraded your pc by then MS will order a new pc for you Microsoft pushes Windows 10 upgrade to PCs without user consent

    How can I say this without getting the usual negative comments, oh, I can't so will just ignore them. I have W7 home and after a bad update I reformatted, then set my updates to never. Microsoft over rode the settings when I tried to install MS Office and Windows live mail, but they only updated what I needed.

    When I first heard stories like this I went to component services, then to services and disabled my updates. Now when I go into "view updates" the page is blank. I suppose MS can go in and enable it again, but at least I have done what I can to keep MY computer settings the way I want them. Now I need to do the same in my Laptop with W 8.1.

    I do believe there is a KB update you hide to stop the GWX Application from installing. No GWX App should mean no download in the background.

    The guide posted over at SF is seen with four complete steps at Get Windows 10 Icon - Remove from Taskbar in Windows 7 and 8.1 - Windows 10 Forums That includes removal instructions for the 10 app update itself. That will be a large part of preventing anything automatic.

    I had reported in this forum and eightforum that MS was forcing the win10 upgrade on everyone just after the windows 10 launch..
    - this was like me crying Wolf and was blasted as having posted un-confirmed garbage and that I was totally out of my mind..

    Talk to the hand..

    So far though - I have not had the 10 upgrade come back or forced upon me by doing the following - and have since also installed every windows update..

    I wiped and formatted my harddrive - clean installed windows 8.1 and before connecting to the internet - ran brinks Registry GWX Fix
    PC has not yet shown or downloaded windows 10 update or upgrade

    In other words, the registry block was there way before the KB update to install the GWX features
    Well I think the one thing that many seem to miss is that too often people either new and inexperienced or simply not paying enough attention to details simply leave the default updates setting to the MS recomended "automatic" option rather the "automatic with let me choose when..." the updates are then downloaded and installed. That is where the problem is seen not simply MS pushing 10 on everyone by force but by how each new version will be delivered as an update.

    Do you want to see your present version updated automatically to ? MS is getting out of the Display on Staples or other office supply store retail shelve box of twin dvd sets for the 32bit and 64bit into the upgrade by which flavor you are running now method that will continue to be seen with 11? if that's what the next will be if not Wolf Jack or some other MS code name like Long Horn was to Vista. This will still be seen as an intrusion however by the unwary who are unaware of this new move MS is making!

    If you simply set the Windows updates to automatic but I will decide when they are downloaded you will see the listing for both important and "Optional" updates which can easily be picked over! That will save on a lot of fuss over how to disable this and that when not even necessary!

    Removing one single update to lose the 10 app no longer necessary makes a lot more sense that going through all that! Saves time and efffort and gets the job done much faster!

    It's getting like my bank and credit card company. When I log on, there's a screen that asks if I want to opt out of paper statements, for their benefit not mine; check boxes for Yes and No, with Yes pre-filled and a 'continue' button. They hope that I won't be paying attention and just click 'continue'.
    Wait until you log onto Windows 7 and get that kind of message every time until one day, it'll get you!

    UPDATE ON SECOND PC! I should say this thread was timed well! As you see when checking up on the second 10/7 dual booted mini tower accessed remotely you soon discover things!

    A bit too late for the reg tweak for disabling the 10 app! Instead the Option Four for removing the KB3035583 update responsible as well as seeing that hidden on the next manual check for updates will prevent that from being seen ever again on the 7 Pro side of things there. Likewise won't be worried about seeing that happen since the upgrade failed already leaving the BT and WS folders behind! Now I can back them up elsewhere in case of need!

    I'd use this method If I wanted to stop the Windows 10 update - Upgrade to Windows 10 Update - Enable or Disable in Windows 7 or 8.1 - Windows 10 Forums

    I went one step further even being Step Four in the other guide pointed to in seeing the culprit KB3035583 update for the 10 app itself removed.

    Once that particular update for the 10 app was uninstalled and I went to check on new updates it was right back on the remote system due to having everything updated already as of late while the 7 install on the main build hadn't been run too much since 10 went on to get familiar with it.

    That was automatically unchecked upon right clicking on it and will remain hidden from view unless clicking on the Restore hidden updates option where then if you should forget which one it is if several are found or you decide to get the 10 app you can then see it download and install all over again. But this will prevent any unintended upgrade if you leave things set for automatic and not the automatic with let me choose when to download and install option.

    The alternate shows how to simply disable when not wanting 10 to go unexpectedly but is easy to re-enabled when later deciding to see the upgrade take place. That's good for anyone not presently running any dual boot of 10 with another version however where you don't want to the previous version upgraded over or for someone now wanting 10?!

    Of course the download option using the Media Creation tool is available for anyone wanting to see the 10 upgrade installed differently such as by flash drive or dvd like on an HP laptop without any boot options menu for selecting usb but automatically will load anything on dvd media. That type of situation is where you might want to see 10 go on by way of the updates option.

    The guides themselves are all well written but can apply to different situations respectively.
