    Cant leave Insider at all?


    Hey
    Build 14986.rs_prerelease.161202-1928

    It says*I can "stop" or "take a break" of insider downloads for a 1, 3, 5 or 7 days but I cant leave from it totally?

    Do*I need to clean install the Windows? Its weird, cause*Ive dropped*2 Computers 1-2 months ago without any problems and this laptop wont allow me to do it.

    I even deleted the*windows-account from the Computer but still no luck. Any help around?

    Did you 'Unlink' your Insider Account on the Insider Page?

    Yeah it had no effect.*I unlinked -> rebooted -> same stuff, only can postpone the Insider updates for 1, 3, 5 and 7 days. Then i even deleted the whole Windows account, made a new*local user -> still cant do anything with it*>_<

    Pretty weird. I had here however today, win10 home insider version, I activated it with a win7 pro key, but that shouldnt be issue here? I just want this out from the insider cause im selling the laptop.

    The conventional wisdom would be to do a factory restore back to the OS it came with, i.e. Win7. I've just done one and it wiped out everything to get back to its as-shipped condition.

    Yeah I just have no time for that, sadly. Well guess she can roll on with the insider too, its only for Netflix usage anyway.

    last time asking, no other way to fix this but full re-install? will mark "solved" in 2-3 days if no ideas for here.

    Thanks.

    That's all I've seen to be successful, a clean install usually of an RTM version or an older version of Windows.

    Just wait a few weeks until next official release is out in April and you will be able to exit without reinstalling anything.
