Prevent Windows 10 upgrade offer.

Hello,

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.

Hi,

Once this update is uninstalled, it will attempt to reinstall through Windows Update...

The Update must be Hidden to prevent it's reinstallation...

Just right click on it and select HIDE...

There are actually four updates that should be uninstalled and then Hidden...
