I have Windows 7 Home Premium and I do not want to change to Windows 10. When I go to Windows Update, the only update presented is "your upgrade to Windows 10 is ready."  Months ago I set my Windows Update to "check for updates but let me choose whether to download and install them" in order to prevent the change to Windows 10. For all this time I have not been able to update my Windows 7, and it is starting to malfunction in several ways. Please tell me how I can stop Windows 10 upgrades, and update Windows 7. My operating system is 64-bit and I have Service Pack 1.

Hi,

 

Try installing the Update provided by Microsoft https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/3184143/remove-software-related-to-the-windows-10-free-upgrade-offer

 

Let me know if this solves the problem if not there is another tool you can use.

SleepyDude:
Thanks for your quick response.
 
I clicked the link you sent. It went to "Remove software related to the Windows 10 free upgrade offer". Method 1 would not work because updating is blocked by the Win 10 upgrade as before (see attachment "bleeping 1"), so I used method 2. I downloaded only "Update for Windows 7 for x64-based Systems (KB3184143)". This went well,and when restarting I got a message something like "don't turn off your computer, updates in progress", WHICH I HAVE NOT GOTTEN FOR MONTHS, SO I KNOW something UPDATED
 
But after restart, when I go to Windows Update, I see exactly what I saw before I contacted you (see attachment "bleeping 2"); so it appears to me that routine Windows 7 updating is still blocked.
 
Thanks,

Hi,

 

In that case try GWX Control Panel http://blog.ultimateoutsider.com/2015/08/using-gwx-stopper-to-permanently-remove.html

Go to control panel / uninstall program. On the left panel, click view installed updates. Find KB3035583. Highlight, and uninstall. Restart your computer, and the upgrade request will be gone. I suggest after finishing, you go back to windows update because it will reappear on the list. Right click it, and select hide update. It won't bother you any further.
