Various links to pages of interest. How to get rid of Windows 10 Upgrade notices: There are a number of articles online about how to disable the annoying nagging about upgrading to Windows 10. It is best if you can disable the notices before the upgrade is done, but there are also ways to revert back to Windows 7 or 8 within about 30 days of an upgrade to 10. The basic approach to avoiding an upgrade to 10 and to remove the annoying nagging, is to remove a specific Windows Update patch, then hide it so that it does not get reinstalled the next time you do an update, and finally reboot to be safe. Windows (and other software) updates from Microsoft are identified with a "KB" number. The main culprit for the Windows 10 nagging is one called "KB3035583". There are others mentioned in various online articles, but this is the main one that actually supplies the task bar icon that keeps popping up and asking if you want to upgrade. The following links are to various articles that explain the steps to do to remove this nagware. I thought it best to not regurgitate the details here, and just link to the original content. http://www.howtogeek.com/218856/how-do-you-disable-the-get-windows-10-ic...http://www.infoworld.com/article/2993131/microsoft-windows/disable-windo...http://mspoweruser.com/how-to-remove-windows-10-upgrade-notification-on-...http://www.infoworld.com/article/2974479/microsoft-windows/how-to-get-ri... These articles all pretty much contain the same information and steps, but I thought it prudent to include more than one in case some of them disappear over time. Microsoft seems to be very intent on forcing people to upgrade, whether they want it or not, and they may pull some new tricks in the future that will require a different approach. For now, at least, this change will keep the upgrade at bay. Last Updated 27 June 2016
