Lightbulb Windows 7 & 8 App to Block W10 Update

Quote:
Never 10 is an easy to use utility which gives users control over whether their Windows 7 or 8.1 will upgrade itself to Windows 10.

The name “Never 10” is a bit of an overstatement, since this utility may also be used to easily re-enable Windows operating system automatic upgrading. But the primary reason for using this is to disable Windows' pestering insistence upon upgrading Windows 7 or 8.1 to Windows 10.

FREE

https://www.grc.com/never10.htm
Only released on Mar 30 2016 & already it has had a Total of 96,394 downloads. WOW ! It just shows how many people so far don't want to be nagged/forced to go to W10

Just re- install W7 (SP1) , get any update up to KB281xxx.
NO update after that has any security enhancements.

ALL updates after that are M$ spyware (KB300xxx +).
Remove these - https://www.reddit.com/r/technology/...dates_to_stop/
To lock W7 in , run "RemoveWAT" , disable windows update and BITS in
services (also in group policy).

Leaving the present updates that Gibson's "Never 10" blocks will allow M$
to just produce a workaround at a future date.
Unless you want to have 10 , consider any communication with M$ as a
malware attack - PERIOD.

Edit - just 2 reg keys (never 10) ... all MS has to do is enable them with a future
"sneaky" update.

No, leave it there as I make money putting Win7 back on for people that foolishly install Win10 upgrade and find it is not compatible with their 3year old machine.

win10 = W7.

As long as you have 4 gig memory.

4 year old quad core propus AMD + GT210 nvidia run 10 all the way.
7's aero actually take up more memory on the 210.

10 will easily even install and run on even a single core (AMD 4000+) , as
long as the video is robust.

PS - certain cheap new printers and other Chinese junk might have problems.

That's the most comprehensive KBxxxxx update list I've seen.

That basically brings a user back to my pre - 2013 win7.

And it -
Quote:
it will change your Windows Update settings to 'check/notify but do not download/install'.
This is good , but M$ never had any important security bug update after 2013.
So what is the purpose of even having update run at all ? disable it -
M$ might still try to sneak a new one in or some other nefarious trick.
M$ update is spyware in itself.
