Stopping Windows 10 Upgrade
In the current Windows Secrets E-Mail there is a detailed procedure to disable Windows 7 from upgrading to Windows 10. I tried to do this to my wife's computer and was not successful.
The two lines HKEY_Local_Machine/SOFTWARE/Policies/Microsoft/Windows/WindowsUpdate and HKEY_Local_Machine/software/Microsoft/Windows/CurrentVersion/WindowsUpdate/OSUpgrade were not in her registry.
I found them on my work computer that runs Windows 7 Enterprise.
Am I missing something?
