    Exclamation Disable Windows 10 Upgrade

    Had to use my Win 8.1 backup to restore Windows 8.1 after Windows 10 Upgrade. Now I can't get Win 8 Updates as Update id hung with "Your Upgrade to Windows 10 is Ready" message. Also I keep getting the White box that says it will update soon. I have deleted the Windows 10 files in Windows.~NT so it can't run and followed Woody's notes to fix this problem, but nothing works. Anyone with any ideas?

    Try running GWX Control Panel, preferably spending a happy hour or two pre-reading the blog...

    Thx BATcher! The URLs you provided are old and no longer work. The good news is that there are two new ones:

    http://ultimateoutsider.com/downloads/

    and:
    http://blog.ultimateoutsider.com/201...ly-remove.html

    and they work well. Didn't take the whole half hour tho...Thx again for the fix!

    As an added measure, uninstall and then hide any of these updates that you may have.

    Just an aside, but it is not a good idea to use a legitimate email address as a user ID. You're inviting lots of SPAM.
    Create a fresh drive image before making system changes, in case you need to start over!
