Stopping Win 10
#11
I just reverted back to Win 7 from Win 10. I was having problems getting a number of applications to work properly, and the default programs had changed. My network was broken and printers were not shared. iTunes didn't work at all. For some reason, Win 10 works fine on the laptop, but not on the desktop.

Thanks for the registry hack.

You're welcome red neck, and thank you for the KB rogues list.

For those that do not want to mess with the registry or think you may have missed one of their many attempts to push this to your computer: A GUI for removing and preventing Gwx and the Windows Update from offering the update to you is available.

Ran this on my 7 box and it confirmed I have thwarted M$'s plan to push 10 to that computer. It also has a "monitor" you can activate to alert you if M$ tries to sneak one by you. It has a way to enable the updates again should you choose to do that and it has a stand alone version if you do not want to use the installer.

... And just when you thought you were being too paranoid about Microsoft's sneaky invasion of privacy and forced Win10 updates, check out this story:

Windows 10 is delivering updates to other computers using your bandwidth by default

Alongside a lot of new features and improvements, Windows 10 includes a new way of delivering updates. The feature, which is dubbed as Windows Update Delivery Optimization works pretty much like a torrent — it hosts the Windows Update files locally, and then deliver it to other PCs on the internet (by default) or the PCs on your local network using your bandwidth.

While some of you may like this feature, it’s kind of annoying as Microsoft has chosen to deliver the updates to other PCs on the internet by default. What makes this worse is that the option to disable this feature is pretty hidden. Here’s a quick GIF showing you how to disable Windows Update Delivery Optimization on your PC:

If you do use Windows 10, there's a tool called Shutup10 that gives you easy control over a lot of the options that concern many people, including privacy and unwanted updates.
Get the free SleepyHead software here.

I'd hold off on this download for a little while. I tried it and it locked out my update control panel, restore point, and started downloading Win10. I noticed a lot of outbound traffic to various ip's on the firewall after it was installed. They were all targeted to port 80 on each ip. Snort caught them and basically shutdown all internet requests.

I hope I'm the oddity.

There is a W7 machine in the house that is "communal." I don't do much maintenance on it.
It's W7 Home Premium 32 bit.

I had killed GWX, and some updates. It downloaded a big hidden file in preparation to install W10.
Today, I hacked the registry and deleted all the bad actor updates; then hide them.

I have tried to delete that big hidden file. I was successful with some sub folders by changing ownership and permissions.
But, I cannot remove the whole enchilada. Ideas?
