I am using windows 7 and I have automatic updates turned off. I used to be notified when a new update was available but for some months now this has stopped (no idea why....still have the 'ask before downloading when there is a new update' option turned on).

So every time I want to update windows I go to the update center and I press to see all available updates. along with all the updates there is always the windows 10 update selected and I have to deselect it every time I want to update.

Is there a program that hides that update so that I won't have to deselect it every time?

  • Since this week there's an option to opt-out, isn't it? Commented Jul 13, 2016 at 14:39
  • Maybe not yet in my country or I haven't found that yet. How is that possible?

Never10 did exactly this in the past. It is gratis.

Never10 does NOT prevent the installation of Windows updates, including the infamous Get Windows 10 (GWX) update KB3035583. Never10 simply employs Microsoft's documented and sanctioned configuration settings to instruct it NOT to change the installed version of Windows.

Since this week, at least here in Germany, the Windows 10 update itself provides an option to opt-out and disable the nag screen.
