Stop Windows Update from Upgrading to Windows 10

All Topics > Software Products > Microsoft Software
There are many reasons why someone cannot afford to upgrade to Windows 10. To stop the persistent Windows 10 upgrade as part of Auto Updates:
 
Add these two registry entries, then reboot:
 
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
 
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\Gwx]
"DisableGwx"=dword:00000001
 
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate]
"DisableOSUpgrade"=dword:00000001
 
You can also download and run the .reg file we created with the above entries on our ftp site:
 
 
 
 
NOTE: ALL REGISTRY ENTRIES ARE PROVIDED AT THE SOLE RISK OF END USER.  YOU SHOULD HAVE BACKUP OF REGISTRY BEFORE MAKING CHANGES.
