DoctorLaptop‘s Tips #46 – Easy Way to Stop Win 10 Upgrade Nags
Are you are happy with your current Windows system and want to stop the annoying Win 10 Upgrade nag popups, stealth installation of Win 10 files and eliminate the taskbar notice symbol? Here is a tutorial that is very simple to follow, including a tool to do this. It has pics of each step. This tool, The GWX Control Panel, has never given me any problems and includes an Undo function if you decide later to do the Win 10 Upgrade. http://tinyurl.com/hxpuym6
Once done you will be free of the threatening notices that seem to force you into the unwanted upgrade. You will also prevent the download, or remove all the files Microsoft has already snuck into your computer, to prepare it for the upgrade.
As always, make a new System Restore Point before doing any modifications to your system. Here’s how:
On Win 7: Click Start, right click Computer, click Properties, click System Protection from the menu on the far left, click Create then enter a name for the restore point like “pre Win 10 block”, then click the Create button. Wait till you get a confirmation, then click Close.
On Win 8/8.1: Move the pointer all the way to the lower left corner until you see the Start button display, then right click on the Start button. Click System. Click on the System Protection link in the left pane. If prompted by a permission popup, click Yes. Click on the Create button. Enter a name for the restore point like “pre Win 10 block”. Click Create. Wait till you get a confirmation, then click Close.
Note: In all systems the current date and time are added automatically to the restore point.
This info is not an indication that Win 10 is bad, it is only to help those who don’t want it yet.
