On the available updates window, click the optional updates, uncheck the win 10 upgrade. The win 10 upgrade will now stop loading each day you startup your pc. Simply click the x when the blue box pops up each day to remind you to schedule your upgrade.

I will still upgrade to win 10 when I'm ready. Find that the Microsoft Edge is a security risk for now on someone's pc. The antivirus was of no help in that situation.

Hi Tomasc

Have a look at the attached. There is nothing on there about W10. It's the blue pop-up that I am finding a pain, it seems to come up every five minutes or so. How can I get rid of the dreaded blue reminder?

Thanks

Robert

You mean, besides installing Win10

This *article* covers it very well, giving you options to hide it or completely remove it (by uninstalling KB 3035583). I've updated 4 PCs but have two that aren't hardware compatible, and I'm going to remove the "update" that put the reminder there in the first place.

Hi optodata

Thanks for that information. The problem really, is I have read so many horror stories on here I just don't know which way to go.

If I reserve a copy, am I committed to having W10?

Thanks Panny TM10, GH2, GH4,

My understanding is that you'll be offered Win10 through Windows Update whenever your reservation comes through. According to the article, removing the reminder after you've made a reservation won't have any affect on you actually getting Win10.

I couldn't wait for my reservation and downloaded the ISO on 7/29. Things went smoothly for the most part on my 4 upgrades, and only one had some issues and I decided to start with a clean install.

Other than the issues that some members have posted about error messages with some AVI clips in PD13, I have had no other problems. But that's just my experience, and I think it's fine to proceed with caution if you're not quite ready for the change.

Looks like optodata has got you headed in the right direction. I never get the win 10 popup every 5 minutes, only once a day when I start the pc in the morning and now only a popup that in the morning can be closed with an x without it downloading anything after unchecking the win 10 upgrade in the optional update window. It must be related to fact that I changed the reccommended action years ago of Install updates automatically to Download updates but let me choose whether to install them. See the attached screenshots:


  1. Change in windows update reccommendation.

  2. Window 10 Upgrade appears in Optional.
