Blocking upgrades

If you don't want to upgrade to Windows 10, or are indecisive right now, you may want to block updates and the Windows updates that are responsible for displaying the update notification on the system.

The first thing you need to do is remove updates that power these notifications. This is done in the following way:

  • Tap on the Windows-key on the keyboard, type programs and features, and hit enter. This opens the list of software installed on the system.
  • Switch to "view installed updates" on the left side of the window.
  • If you are using Windows 7, locate the following updates: 3035583, 2952664, 3021917, 2990214
  • If you are using Windows 8, locate the following updates: 3035583, 2976978, 3044374
  • Right-click one update after the other and select uninstall from the context menu.
  • Select Restart Later when the prompt appears and remove all updates first from the system.
  • Once done, restart the computer to complete the process.

Once you are done, it is important that you block these updates from being found and installed again by Windows Update. If you don't do this and have automatic updates enabled, they may be installed again on the system.

To block these updates, do the following:

  • Tap on the Windows-key, type Windows Update, and hit enter.
  • This should open the Windows Update dialog.
  • Select "check for updates" to find new updates to install on the system. Windows should find the updates listed above again.
  • Click on the "important update is available" link.
  • Right-click each of the listed updates above that are listed on the page and select hide update from the context menu.
  • This blocks the update from being installed on the system.
