This just started tonight. I got a notice that there were important updates available. I went into Update and found 1 important (Defender update) and 2 optionals. I told the program to update and it tried. It gave an error and I just started over by saying to look for updates.
From that point, I keep getting this big message to upgrade to 10 and an update option of over 2.5 GB. I bypassed that and when I saw the update in the optional list, I said to hide it.
It won't stay hidden! Now, every time I open Windows update on Windows 8.1 it starts with the incredibly obnoxious and obvious plea to update to 10.
I do not want to update to 10. From what I've heard, there are still a lot of problems starting from the fact that the start menu "back" to Windows 7 is NOT back to Windows 7 and continuing with the limit of 512 shortcuts still there.
I want my 8.1 laptop and my 7 desktop to stay where they are. I know what I have and I have it working to my satisfaction. Now how do I keep this "update" hidden?
