I am not now nor will I ever be interested in upgrading to Windows 10. I've read many other posts which suggest uninstalling a KB update to prevent the icon from displaying but again and again the update is repeatedly installed.
I tried Windows 10 and sadly, absolutely nothing worked, none of my USB devices were recognized, my touchscreen failed to work and my WiFi disconnected ever 3-5 minutes religiously. The downgrade back to Windows 8.1 failed completely and I had to start from scratch. I have finally gotten my Windows 8.1 back and have made it look and behave exactly like Windows 7 using Classic Shell. This is exactly where I want my PC to be and to stay until a version that works is finally released.
(My PC is a Lenovo A730.)
Other threads have suggested repeatedly that not wanting to upgrade is foolish and I find responses like this to be unhelpful. I find Windows 8 through 10 to be ugly and provide an unsatisfactory user experience and nothing will change this, I am simply looking for an answer to delete the Microsoft ad-ware off of my PC.
Thank you in advance to anyone that is able to provide assistance.
