need some advice please i have a partion on my hd, 1 as windows 10 and the other as window7, i dont want want windows 7 to update to 10, i have backed up windows 7, plus i have been doing a lot of reading on google, but all i came up with is this As central as it is to the core of Windows 10, Windows Update is actually just another Windows process so it can be stopped with these simple steps: Open the Run command (Win + R), in it type: services.msc and press enter From the Services list which appears find the Windows Update service and open it In ‘Startup Type’ (under the ‘General’ tab) change it to ‘Disabled’ Restart To re-enable Windows Update simply repeat these four steps, but change the Startup Type to ‘Automatic’ so as you can see i have to disable it and enable it to get up dates.nut reading on here last night i came across this http://forums.mydigitallife.net/thr...tem-Integrate-hotfixes-into-Win7-distribution and managed to do the update that are offered, i did look and thay are there. and from what i was reading i can use them on w10 am i right. my mane question is this is there anyway i can stop w7 updating to w10 as i have explained i use the above method plus i have hidden the w10 icon update so it does not get pressed, plus i dont know if its me but my browser seems to be faster. so can i stop and let windows update without the hassle of w10 installing, i hope i have explained myself so it can be understood thank you. just to add this is a fresh install of w7.
