KnowledgeBase - Disable automatic "Free upgrade to Windows 10" advertisements
Sometimes the automatic update Service for Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8, and Windows 8.1 bombards the user with options to upgrade to Windows 10, and in some rare cases starts the upgrade process automatically. This is undesireable in many cases:
To prevent the Windows automatic update Service from even attempting to introduce Windows 10 upgrade options, disable the GWX setting in the Windows Registry:
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 ; Downloaded from: https://www.inter-corporate.com/kb/disable-gwx.pl [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREPoliciesMicrosoftWindowsGwx] "DisableGwx"=dword:00000001
You can also download this Windows Registry entry as a .reg file, here: disable-gwx.reg
