    Want to install 8.1 updates but WinX goes into download

    Have had a "Upgrade to Windows 10" splashed over my updating screen since end of July. Can't update 8.1!
    Recently was told to uninstall the following and to hide them in "available updates": 3035583 (aka GWX), 2976978, and 2952664.
    I see there are 8 others noted in this forum. I only had 2976978 to uninstall and 3035583 & 2952664 to hide.
    I set up my check marks to select all but those last 3 but when clicking on the install button (presuming this only for the checked items as it was on the page where I checked the installs) but it will only download Win X which I shut off when it got to 1% download.
    I need to do another 8.1 image backup and user file backup. AND do not want to go to X yet.
    Which approach is the one to use, the ones shown here or just the 3, I was told to uninstall and hide or neither and do something else?

    BTW I do not see the files I hid. Can the hidden files be shown?

    There was an update to version 1.4 a week ago that fixed more issues.
