Why does Windows 10 keep trying to install on my computer RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am running Windows 7 on my computer. When I check on updates I see that there has been a failed attempt to upgrade to Windows 10.  I have not initiated this attempt.  It seems to mess up the computer and I have to re-start the computer to get it back to normal.  How do I stop these attempts in install Windows 10

  • Hi,

    To block the upgrade to Windows 10 through Windows Update, specify the following registry value:

    Subkey: HKLM\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate
    DWORD value: DisableOSUpgrade = 1
