    Thumbs down How to not upgrade at re-boot or shutdown

    Oh joy. 10 forced me to upgrade. Didn't like it. Had a drive image so was able to go back to 8.1. I've removed KB3035583, KB3068708, KB2952664, KB2990214, KB3021917 & KB3050265. It still says that 10 is ready to install.

    As for shutdown, it gives me 2 options. Update and restart or update and shutdown. So what now? I did change settings in Update to notify, not download and install. Do I dare reboot?

    TIA

    One option is to upgrade and then roll back to your previous OS. Not a great answer but it should work. Otherwise call Microsoft to see if they have any better options.

    I don't understand. How did it force you?

    Because it had downloaded and was ready to install. A popup would come up saying it was going to install. I'd move the install date for 3 days later. Don't remember exactly what I'd done, but had to reboot. When it came back up, 10 installed.

    Like an idiot, I'd registered. Now wishing I hadn't.

    Did you try and remove that upgrade notice rather than just defer it?
