Windows 7 automatically upgrade to Windows 10 RRS feed

  • Question

  • hi,

    In the past two days, we found that the Win7 of our employees was automatically upgraded to Win10. How can I prevent the phenomenon of automatic upgrade to WiN10 from Win7?

    Our WSUS Server system is Windows Server 2016, and we have also canceled the upgrade of the product category; searched online, it may be related to KB3035583, but I did not find the KB from the WSUS patch, there should be other reasons.

    Please also help to deal with it, looking forward to your reply!
