    Stopping the annoying "windows 10" upgrade message

    Hi All,

    I use windows 7 and will continue to as windows 10 does not come with Media Center, so I do I stop the annoying messages asking if I want to upgrade to windows 10.

    Or can't I.

    Any suggestions

    Thanks

    Download and run either GWX Control Panel or GRC's Never10. The utilities will allow you to tunr off the W10 upgrade forever.

    cheers, Paul

    Hope this helps

    Ahh - this thread answers the question I was about to post.

    I was about to set my PC to do this download in the early hours of tomorrow when the little bell rang saying - "Is this a scam - do I know that this is real and not some nasty about to take over my PC?".

    Seems the answer is that it is genuine.

    On youtube there is a poster Britec09 who posts many useful items.

    Of interest here is an interesting post about the seemingly forced windows 10 update.

    He goes through the options including those mentioned above. A quite clear presentation.
