    Can anyone tell me how to "write" a regedit .reg file out of this:

    reg add HKLM\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\Gwx /v DisableGwx /t REG_DWORD /d 1 /f
    reg add HKLM\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate /v DisableOSUpgrade /t REG_DWORD /d 1 /f

    I just want to make this a .reg file so all I have to do is "install" the .reg file (from the above) so when I go to a neighbor's house, I can fix Win7 for him as well.
    Thank You.
    Dave

    open regedit.
    browse to the key (like the folders)
    changes the values you want. (this is easier than rewriting you reg add command)
    right click on the key (folder icon) and export.

    if you open the reg file in notepad you will understand the meanings and also can customize the values you want.

    You can add those values to the Registry all you want, it won't work. In my opinion, it's easier to switch to Enterprise version of Windows. GWX is not applicable in updates and you'll never be pestered.

    Thank you for your opinion. Can you tell me what is the difference from Ultimate & Enterprise? Also what is GWX?

    Lastly, there has to be a way to get ride of Upgrade to Windows 10 on the task bar of Windows 7 Ultimate.
    Thanks again.
