I tried Win 10 for a week and wanted to go bach to win 7. [This possibility was promissed for 31 days.] Howeever I got a message "sorry,..etc." not possible.

Then I tried RESET telling me to reinstall Win 10 again. They did. But ALL MY PROGRAMMES WERE GONE ! All my mails, everything.

Hi johnyjohn :)

To get rid of the notification for the Windows 10 upgrade in the icon tray, you need to uninstall the KB3035583, then you need to check for updates manually, right-click on it once it's found and select Hide.

rONW46K.pngUninstall a Windows Update - Command Prompt
Follow the instructions below to uninstall a Windows Update manually via the command prompt.
  • On Windows Vista & 7, click on the Windows Start Menu, then enter cmd in the search box, right-click on the cmd icon and select Run as Administrator
  • On Windows 8, drag your cursor in the bottom-left corner, and right-click on the metro menu preview, then select Command Prompt (Admin);
  • On Windows 8.1, right click on the Windows logo in the bottom-left corner and select Command Prompt (Admin);
  • Enter the command below (you can copy/paste it, to paste in the command prompt, right-click inside it and select Paste):
    • wusa /uninstall /KB:3035583
  • Let me know the outcome of the command: either it uninstall the update or either it says that the update isn't installed on the system;

wlepee, welcome to Bleeping Computer.  There are a few things that will prevent you from rolling back to a previous version of Windows from Windows 10.  A couple of these are: deleting the Windows.old directory and performing a disk clean up.

This happened when you entered the command johny? If so, you most likely didn't enter it properly, try again. When entered properly it'll ask you if you want to uninstall that update.

I got in a big mess with Win 10 and didn't have any opportunity to roll back to 7 ,  deleted all the old files.  Somehow during a refresh the Win 10 boot info was deleted .

 

I just stuck a Win 7 repair disk in the tray to boot back into the recovery console and restored 7 from an image i burned .  No issues.

John , i am just like you , always get confused with even simple instructions , well simple to others but not to us.

 

Try this , go to the windows update page and click on (installed updates) at the bottom left hand corner of the page .  When all the updates pop up type in or paste the ( KB3035583), at the top right "search bar" (top right of page) .

 

If you have that update installed it will automatically pop up and when it does right click and hide it for now.

If i could understand that i was sure you would because i very rarely understand anything computer related ,  even instructions that a "caveman" could figure out baffle me .

Problem seems to be, that even after you get rid of it in the tray, you can no longer get updates for your old Windows.  I'm having that problem with 8.1, and here is a report on someone else having that problem, too.

 

In other words, if you select AGAINST GWX, the other updates for your current Windows, won't process either.  So then may as well turn all updates off.  Way to go, Microsoft.
