Specs: Windows 7 Prefessional, Intel core I7
I got a Windows logo down by my clock that shows free upgrade to Windows 10. I do not want Windows 10. How do I get this gone. I removed it once and now it's back. I want it gone and never want it back again. I got my computers running fine with Windows 7 and I want to stay with 7. Someone please guide me on how to get this gone please.

Win7 is a great OS but won't be around forever. You don't have to upgrade to Win10 & you have one year to make your decision. IMO, it's kinda foolish to pass up the free reservation from Microsoft, especially so soon, but that's your business. These methods should do the trick.

I

DO

NOT

WANT

WINDOWS

10

I am happy with 7. I rather just use Windows 7 and be foolish.
Uninstalling KB3035583 will remove the icon. I did that once it came back. Support for Windows 7 until 2019.

You are free to do as you please with your copy of Windows 7. As for Support for Windows 7 until 2019, be aware of the Difference between Mainstream Support and Extended Support.

I paid extra for a Windows 7 laptop in October 2014 got 2 year warranty. And was told security updates until 2019 that is all that matters to me. Adn I removed the KB3035583 lastnight from add/remove. This morning it is back. Microsoft is trying to rape me.

"I am happy with 7. I rather just use Windows 7 and be foolish"

I was happy with Win 3.1 riding on top of DOS 6.22 back in the early 90s too. I was also happy with Win95, Win98SE, WinME (yes, believe it or not), WinXP, & Win7. Vista & Win8 are the only versions I skipped over, as did the majority of Windows users.

Like I said, if you want to pass up a freebie from Microsoft, that's your business, but it certainly wouldn't hurt to accept the reservation & accept the download when it becomes available. Whether or not you actually install it is up to you, but at least you'll have it as a future option if you change your mind.

If you absolutely 100% do not want Win10, there are numerous steps that need to be taken to prevent it from downloading. Uninstalling KB3035583 is just one of the steps.

I am sorry I got touchy. I was trying to make my point. If I do install it I will do it on another hard drive and try it out. I just do not want it to auto install. Maybe I misunderstood something. I liked the old versions of Windows also. I just think they should not force it on us. Maybe let Windows 7 be another XP with long support.

My initial reaction was to suggest uninstalling the update then setting it to hidden. However, as already given, there is lot more shown in the third link in response #1. Have you done all that?

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Derek I uninstalled KB3035583 then set it to hidden and tonight I had updates and now KB3035583 is back. This is really really anoying. I will uninstall KB3035583 and then hide it. I really really want to stay with Windows 7. Microsoft just does not get it. Too many young people in charge at Microsoft want to force things on us.

OK It seems to be fixed right now. It may come back like it did before. It is so annoying. Can this be marked as unresolved for now. If it comes back I will come back and reply. Microsoft should have just provided downloads to iso files instead of trying to force it on people. There needs to be something that kill's KB3035583 like there was in XP called shoot the messenger.

This threads stay open for months so just leaving it for now will be fine.

Hope it stays away. I'm still on the fence about going for Win 10 as it has caused hassle for some. Maybe I'm the only guy in the world who is running Win 8.1 and quite happy with it. I don't miss the start menu either - I just made my own arrangements.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

the main problem I see with win10 is it does not let the user decide when to install updates. I may not want to wait 15+ min. for the computer to restart so I can use linux or win 8.1.

I do currently have installed Win 8.1 with bing, win 10 home and win10 pro. with 3 different linuxs.

I am not so sure if one replaces the hdd, a new clean install of the upgraded to win10 will activate.
I upgraded from win 10 build 10130 (method till Oct. to upgrade from XP/Vista) to build 10240 (win10 pro) and it activated, then replaced hdd and did a clean install of win10 pro, would not activate.
