    Hi everyone,

    Like a lot of people, I do not want to install Win10. I tried it and my WiFi didn't work at all anymore, no matter what I tried, so I switched back to Win8.1. However, since then, whenever I install Windows updates, I get this message: "Your upgrade to Windows 10 is ready". And then if I reboot my PC, it starts installing Win10 again... This has been going on for months and months and I am sick of it. I have been able to remove this message a few times, but this time nothing is working.

    What I already did:

    De-install KB3035583 and KB2976978
    Look for the $Windows.~BT but cannot find it anywhere (even though I can see hidden folders)

    Does anyone know how to make sure that I will not be installing Win10 when I reboot my computer in a few hours??

    Thank you!

    The Stand Alone version. It will cleanup any windows 10 junk already on there.
