Stop Windows Update from Upgrading to Windows 10

There are many reasons why someone cannot afford to upgrade to Windows 10. To stop the persistent Windows 10 upgrade as part of Auto Updates:
 
Add these two registry entries, then reboot:
 
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
 
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\Gwx]
"DisableGwx"=dword:00000001
 
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate]
"DisableOSUpgrade"=dword:00000001
 
You can also download and run the .reg file we created with the above entries on our ftp site:
 
 
 
 
NOTE: ALL REGISTRY ENTRIES ARE PROVIDED AT THE SOLE RISK OF END USER.  YOU SHOULD HAVE BACKUP OF REGISTRY BEFORE MAKING CHANGES.
