Anyone know how to completely get rid of the Windows 10 upgrade prompt so I can install critical updates? I seemingly deleted all the necessary files and folders including the $WINDOWS.~BT folder but every time I uncheck the optional "Upgrade to Windows Home" update and attempt to install the important ones, I immediately get prompted to install the upgrade now or schedule it for later. Is there something that needs to be deleted or modified in registry to make this go away for good? What am I missing? I'm on Windows 8.1, by the way.
It's quite simple:
- Uninstall the Windows Update KB3035583
- search for updates (just search, don't install any), select KB3035583, right click and hide it
This way it won't get installed/listed when installing other important updates.
That should work, at least it does for me on a few computers.
