    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?

    Thanks!
