Very nice info to have! Thanks everyone.
Has anyone seen a situation where the Windows 10 upgrade forced it's way through, even with Windows Update set to "never check for updates"?
I'm helping a client where it appears that is what happened. I was able to boot from a USB drive with a Windows 8 installation disk image; then I was able to manually restore the registry files from backup.
She had security software installed (Deep Freeze, from Faronics) that completely locks your computer from any changes; the upgrade pushed through part way and caused the computer to go into a perpetual loop of trying to install the update, then restarting, etc.

The way I see it is that it could install Win10 depending on when Windows Update WAS set to "never check for updates" There may be some unwanted updates already on the computer before she shut down WU.
That being said I look at this Deep Freeze program and it seems there are settings in there for WU. Did she have that set right?? Plus the fact that I believe that this program runs in a live system and the Win10 upgrade install will happen on a reboot to install Thus Deep Freeze would be shut down until a reboot but by that time Win10 is still trying to install. Now upon reboot Deep Freeze may be trying to stop the completion of windows install (not sure of this) and things may be getting screwed up and the install wants to start over again, thus the endless loop.
This sounds like something that should be reported to the developers of Deep Freeze (Possibly a bug).
If this program is allowing itself to be undermined by a Windows 10 install, chances are that the program could allow itself to be compromised by malware.
Something to think about...

Hello, I want to ask,when I uninstalled IE.
Does it need to install the latest security updates to IE,who say cumulative update for IE protection?
Thanks for the quick response.
Sorry, but my reply was not intended as a reply to you. I forgot to quote the original post.
Deleting the GWX folder has been the one and done solution for myself
So does uninstalling KB3035583
btw, W10 upgrade doesn't need it, it can be delivered just by WU client
POV... Some agrees... Some does not...
