    Hi!
    First surprises and first potential problems :rolleyes:

    Has someone found a good and safe way to get rid of automatic updating to Windows 10? I plan to do it later, manually. We have a lot of Windows 7 computers with specific software and specific needs.
    Is it enough to uninstall and hide KB3035583 in Windows Update or need do something more?

    Thanks!

    to disable automatic updates gpedit- computer configuration- admin templates - windows components- windows update- configure windows updates -enable - choose option 2 .

    remember this only prevents auto install not skipping updates

    IMHO, it will disable automatic install of all updates.
    Not good at all.

    I read in the MS forums that there was one more KB to uninstall, but I cant find the article again. I am looking for it myself since I just did a fresh install of Windows 7.

    After tracking down the few updates for Windows 7 that I knew about, it makes me want to go through all the Updates for Windows 7 and see exactly what they are for. There are a few of them in there that seem to be a little shady for them to just force upon users. Like ones that send "telemetry" back to MS. That's got to be on the verge of malicious/spying, and I could see the possibility of a lawsuit about that.

    Create it :rolleyes:

    just save this as .reg file and merge it:
    Code:
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate]
    "DisableOSUpgrade"=dword:00000001

    Simply go to the control panel then disable auto-updating is OK.

    The removing script is there, just open the spoiler and copy the code and save it as .cmd file

    as for marking not to install (hiding), that will need .vbs or .ps1 script
    or do it manually through WU

    can you provide us this gift: a script (in vb or anything else you prefer) to lock these updates so they get marked as ignored, so they will never appear again?

    There's no script can do that, all we can do is hide those updates
    but they will release new version of some updates, or new updates with different KB number
