    Windows 10 is coming soon. Reserve your free upgrade to Windows 10 today notification

    How do I stop the Windows 10 is coming soon. Reserve your free upgrade to Windows 10 today notification in Windows Update from coming back?

    Iím trying to remove anything Windows 10 on a Windows 8.1 64-bit desktop

    Yesterday I successfully uninstalled kb3035583, kb3068708 & kb3050267

    I tried to uninstall kb2976978 but a message reported
    Update for Microsoft Windows (2976978) is required by your computer and cannot be uninstalled.
    --- Would it make sense for me to hide it?

    I checked kb3014460 but a message reported The update 3014460 is not installed on this computer
    --- That makes sense to me since This is for someone who doesnít want the Windows 10 Technical Preview installed

    I went into the Task Scheduler Library and deleted launchtrayprocess & refreshgwxconfig in the gwx folder

    The end result was that the Windows 10 icon tray and the Windows 10 is coming soon. Reserve your free upgrade to Windows 10 today notification in Windows Update and all seemed well

    I ensured Windows Update was set to Check for updates but let me choose whether to download and install them

    Within about 4 hours kb3035583, kb3068708 & kb3050267 were back in Windows Update and I hid all three and all still seemed well

    I left the computer on overnight and it does go into sleep mode

    This morning the Windows 10 icon tray wasnít there as expected.

    However, the Windows 10 is coming soon. Reserve your free upgrade to Windows 10 today notification in Windows Update is back.
    --- How do I stop that from happening?

    FYI, all of the above was carried out Per Susan Bradley's article. "If you have no plans to upgrade to Windows 10 soon, none of those updates is needed; they can all be hidden."
    http://windowssecrets.com/top-story/...-win10-launch/ along with some other posts in WS Windows 10 forum.
    --- Iíve done the same on my Windows 7 Pro laptop following the recommendations for Windows 7 and it has turned out very well and has been doing so sine last week

    That applies to the "Get Windows 10" icon in the tray.

    The OP is talking about the display in Windows Update.

    RetiredGeek, I appreciated your input also because those recommendations coincide with everything else I did all with excellent results

    I thought I would add this in
    Surprise: Windows 10 is coming soon [Reserve] in Windows Update has returned

    My friend brought me her Windows 8.1 64-bit desktop because when she wanted to check Windows Updates, the Windows 10 is coming soon [Reserve] was missing.

    I discovered KB2976978 was installed
    I asked her whether or not she had clicked on the Reserve button and she answered no.
    I tried to uninstall KB2976978 but the following message popped up
    “Update for Microsoft Windows (2976978) is required by your computer and cannot be uninstalled”

    I moved on and uninstalled other KB’s related to Win10 per Susan Bradley’s column in a recent newsletter.
    Shut down the computer: started it back up

    Went into Windows Update
    The Windows 10 is coming soon [Reserve] in Windows Update has returned and the Reserve button is intact
    I’m certainly not an expert in this area but I see that as a good sign

    Any way it surprised me that the Windows 10 is coming soon [Reserve] in Windows Update has returned back to normal
