Like many, I have the option to upgrade to Windows 10. I decided to wait a while, so I hid the update. Yesterday, I had several Office Updates and when I went to install them, the screen showed "Upgrading to Windows 10", "Downloading", then "Preparing to Install", which stayed for an hour or more, then I got the message that the "Updates Installed Successfully", not including Windows 10. After some reading I uninstalled 4 Updates (KB3035583, KB2952664,KB3021917,KB2990214) according to this site, referenced from these forums. Today, the same thing happened with some Windows Updates, except the downloading and "Installing" went by in just a minute. Now again, when I installed the emergency update (KB3087985 Security Update for Internet Explorer 11 for Windows 7) I only saw the Windows 10 crap but at the end, Update history shows that KB3087985 was installed successfully. It's annoying, hopefully someone has an idea to restore Windows Update to its normal behaviour. Oh, and I now have 5.75 GB of Windows 10 files on my drive, if I remove them, it goes back to the 30+ minutes pretending to install Windows 10.
