This isn't the place to discuss the current downside of upgrading

Resolved Question:

This isn't the place to discuss the current downside of upgrading to Windows 10 but I'm finding it increasingly difficult to fight off Microsoft from auto-'upgrading' my Win7 PCs.
A recent 10-page article in a UK computer magazine explained the procedure to fight the update, but it was seriously complicated.
Today's attempt from M'soft gave me the choice of Upgrade No or Start Download and Upgrade later.
Could any expert help?

Thank you for your question, my name is ***** ***** I look forward to assisting you.
Please note, a rating is only needed when we are finished.
If you just do not click on the windows logo in the bottom right for upgrading, then it should not be bothering you and you can ignore it.
Or is it popping up out of the blue and asking you to upgrade?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

Continually popping out of the blue, not asking, rather telling!

thanks
Click start, control Panel, and go to windows updates
click on View update history.
Click on Installed Updates.
In the search box in the upper right corner type in kb3035583. If the update is on your system it will show up in the results.
Click on the KB3035583 entry in the search results and you will be asked if you are sure you want to uninstall it. Click Yes to remove it.
Also be sure to hide it by right clicking on the KB3035583 listing in Windows Update and selecting Hide this update.
restart the computer and the upgrade request should then be gone
Let me know the results please

I've been researching about KB3035583, and there seems to be a strong opinion that hiding it is a temporary fix.

I'm now using this app h t t p://goo.gl/Xt0UsR which gives me more control against the Win 10 attempts, and shows there are already 5Gb of files related to Win 10.

Once again, thank you for your excellent advice.

ok, but that's why you hide it as well then it stops it, that was the second part.
Most people forget to hide it Richard and so it comes back
Maybe next week we can also discuss why you should go to it :) It is really good
