Is there any way to stop these incessant 10 reminders from the MS MF's, before they just ram it down my processor?

Go back a page, look at reply #97 from Logan-5

Its easy to stop the Windows 10 reminder stuff, but you have to watch windows 7 updates they try to sneak little stuff in there.
I have my windows 7 updates set for manual and do it once a month and carefully look over info on each of the optional updates and if it has anything to do with "getting ready for windows 10" I hide/disable that particular one.

to stop win10 update notifications in win7, just download this:
ufoship.com/win10.zip
extract it.  run both files as administrator.  reboot.  no more win10 update notifications.

OK, I downloaded this file from ufoship.com/win10.zip.  It contained 2 files: Disable GWX  and   Disable OSUpgrade.
I highlight each file and then select extract for each, a window appears that is title "COPY"  then shows this

" C:\Users\User\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5\RRFLNWNU\win10 (3).zip\ "

 is to be copied to, I then select OK.


I double clicked on each of them one at a time.  Each time I am queried: "Do you want this program to make changed to your computer?"
I clicked yes for each file.

I am then again queried "Adding information can unintentionally change or delete values and cause components to stop working correctly.  If you do not rust the source of this information in C:\User\downloads\disableGWX.reg, do not add it to the registry.  Are you sure you want to continue?"
I clicked yes for both files.

I am then prompted that "The keys and values contained within C:\User\downloads\disableGWX.reg have been successfully added to the registry."

I then shutdown my PC, then rebooted and was greeted with WINDOWS10 prompts.

What am I doing wrong.

Thanks MV.

make sure you run those files from within an administrator account.  check out this article:

it only fixes firefub bugs if you're running the floppy diskette version of firefub, available by mail upon request.

the online firefub installer, located at http://www.firrefooo-bb.org/brah, is receiving no bug fixes at this time.  thank you for your interest in firefub.

godspeed.

Those registry patches however don't stop a few Windows 10 related windows updates still appearing for windows 7.
Today one update I got was for the Get Windows 10 app again - of course I checked all the new updates info first before allowing them to be installed and caught that one and manually set it for hidden so it wouldn't install.
But Microsoft seems to push it again every few weeks anyway, so you still have to be alert with windows updates.

I reverted from Win 10 to 8.2 a few weeks ago.  For the past 2 days, from a normal boot, something starts running in the background about 2 min. in that completely ties up disc read/write traffic.  It takes hold before I can get into the task scheduler, and I can't get into that from safe mode.  (Fortunately I can use safe mode with networking, which is how I'm writing this, but no sound, video, or a bunch of other things.  Wish I could do an interactive boot.)

Now I recall seeing in Task Mgr. a "GWX" process.  I'd been thinking it had to do with weather.  Now I'm reminded here that's short for Get Windows 10.  I haven't been getting any nagging to upgrade, but this is far worse than mere nagware, it's sabotageware.  What steps do I need to take to kill this?

I did the same thing a few weeks ago.
Fortunately I tested Windows 10 in a separate partition so I could go back to my original Windows 7 intact.
I didn't like that with Windows 10 you can't select things like manual updates and there were too many ads for MS apps, etc.
I'll wait until Windows 7 support expires at least in several years and when there is more driver and app support for Windows 10.

It's only a free upgrade until the 29th of this month. Then it'll cost $100 or so.

There are ways around that though.

I would not install Win10 if THEY paid ME $100.

it's a mistake to upgrade from one version of windows to another.  you need to save your data, wipe the drive, and do a clean install using your machine's win7 product key.  from there, win10 is almost identical to win7 with a few cosmetic exceptions.  i can't imagine what deal breakers you'd find in win10 if you're previously happy with win7.

Um, the relentless hoovering of personal information?

I know that some (maybe you are one of them) don't care about this, but others do, and their feelings are just as valid as those who don't care.

And I'm just amazed that you would cast the user interface as "almost identical" to Win 7.  The interface is very different from Win 7 and you will spend a lot of time being lost until you relearn many things you knew how to do in Win 7.

You can use the media creation tool to make an install usb or disc for Windows10 from the instructions on this page:
