Windows 10 Upgrade

If you’re running a legitimate copy of Windows 7 or Windows 8, you’ve most likely seen a notification at the bottom of your screen notifying you that Windows 10 is available for download. This is true, it’s NOT a virus, and the upgrade is freely available for a year. You do NOT, however, NEED to upgrade to Windows 10, nor do you have to be plagued with the messages or icon in the bottom of the screen.

If you decide you never want to upgrade to Windows 10 you can simply go to add remove programs in control panel and uninstall KB3035583. You first have to list the Windows updates that are already installed. The link is to do that is called view installed updates.

You’ll also have to turn off the downloading of that particular update for the future by changing the way Windows updates are installed. Then you can hide that particular update for the future. Basically all you have to do is go to the Windows updates section in control panel, and choose change settings, then select to download them only (or notify only). Then when they are available you can click the notification message that then lists the available updates and right click the particular update you don’t want, and choose hide update.
