How to STAY on windows 7 and disable windows 10 auto update

How to stay on Windows 7 & 8 forever: disable GWX and uninstall the KB3035583 update to stop Windows 10 upgrade notifications


How to stop the Windows 10 upgrade notifications

How to stop the Windows 10 upgrade notifications
On 1 June 2015 Microsoft announced that it would be offering Windows 10 as a free download for users of Windows 7 and 8. To let its existing user base know, Microsoft slipped in an advertising program (GWX.exe) for Windows 10 within its usual roll-out of security patches for Windows 7 and 8 installations. If you’ve decided you don’t want Windows 10, here’s how you can stop the updates and stay on Windows 7 & 8 forever.
In October 2015 some users reported getting notifications from Windows Update that Windows 10 is downloaded and ready to install, despite never reserving a copy or actively trying to upgrade. Microsoft has responded with a statement:

“As part of our effort to bring Windows 10 to existing genuine Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 customers, the Windows 10 upgrade may appear as an optional update in the Windows Update (WU) control panel. This is an intuitive and trusted place people go to find Recommended and Optional updates to Windows. In the recent Windows update, this option was checked as default; this was a mistake and we are removing Windows 10 from Windows Update for users that have not reserved a copy of Windows 10.”
Update 4 February 2016: Despite Microsoft’s initial claim, Windows 7 and 8 users are receiving notifications again, so we’ve updated this article to explain how you can continue to run 7 or 8 without being nagged to update.
If you have already ended up with Windows 10 against your will, here’s how you might be able to downgrade again to Windows 7 or 8.1.
How to stay on Windows 7 & 8 forever: What is GWX.exe & the KB3035583 update?
The update mentioned at the beginning goes by the anonymous name of KB3035583 and, like a sleeper agent waiting to be activated, appeared on some Windows PCs, laptops and tablets as a clickable item in the Windows taskbar. Interestingly enough, Microsoft don’t specify what the update is, or what it is supposed to do. On our machines we’ve seen the update named as: ‘Update for Windows 7 (or 8) for x64 (or x86)-based Systems (KB3035583)’. This update is very easy to miss, especially as it appears either in the ‘Recommended/Important’ updates and the ‘Optional’ updates. It’s disappointing to see Microsoft forcing this update to users who might now know what KB3035583 entails.


If you allow Microsoft to install updates automatically through Windows Update, or even if you check and install manually, this surreptitious marketing tool will now reside in the Windows taskbar: an icon based on the white four-quarter logo for the new Windows 10 operating system. Click on it and a program calledGWX.exe launches a window with more information to entice you to download the new OS.

We’re not suggesting you shouldn’t upgrade, but if you prefer not to have your privacy being invaded or simply don’t want to upgrade as there is a very slight chance of losing data during the upgrade, we’ll guide you on how to removeGWX.exe. See also: Windows 10 review.

How to stay on Windows 7 & 8 forever: How to stop the Windows 10 upgrade notifications

If you’ve already installed all the optional and recommended updates, you might not have realised update KB3035583 slip through the net and install. In order to remove the KB3035583 update, navigate to your Windows Updates by searching for it in the search bar within your Start Menu, then click on ‘View Update History’. From here you’ll see a new window pop-up and you’ll be able to see a link to ‘Installed Updates’. Click on this hyperlink and it will open another tab with all your previously installed updates.

Give the window a few minutes to load (this might be longer depending on your computer’s specifications), and at the top right-hand corner search for KB3035583.

Right click on the update and select ‘Uninstall’ and follow the on-screen prompts until you are asked to ‘Restart Now’.

Upon restarting the PC, go back into Windows Update and ‘Check for updates’, you should now be able to see KB3035583 as an optional or recommended/important update. Right click on the update and ‘Hide update’. Sometimes you might see ‘Upgrade to Windows 10, version 1511, 10586’ (this was the latest build in February 2016), alternatively it might just appear as ‘Upgrade to Windows 10’, if you see these updates too, right click on them too and hide them.

Finally, restart the PC once more and GWX should hopefully be vanished. You should no longer get any notifications to upgrade nor have any pesky logo in your taskbar telling you that your copy of Windows 10 is ready.

How to stay on Windows 7 & 8 forever: Using GWX Control Panel

During our desire to disable Windows 10’s notifications from appearing we noticed that on a few Windows machines the Windows 10 notification would still appear, even after following the steps above!

Fortunately, blogger ‘Ultimate Outsider’ has written a standalone program (so it doesn’t require installation) and an installer which helps you manage the GWX program and in many cases, can completely stop Windows 10 being downloaded and installed.

It’s called GWX Control Panel, and once running will let you close or disable the upgrade notification icon. It can’t help if you’re already at the point where the Windows 10 upgrade has started, but as we said, you should be able to downgrade by following our step-by-step guideafter Windows 10 is installed.

How to stay on Windows 7 & 8 forever: Security Updates – End of Mainstream Support and Extended Support

Having disabled all Windows 10 notifications and updates you might be wondering, will Windows 7 and 8 ever become like Windows XP and be vulnerable to attacks and security loop-holes?

Recently there’s been a lot of confusion around Windows 7 coming to its end-of-life, where these reports and worries aren’t justified nor explained. Microsoft publishes and updates its ‘Windows lifecycle fact sheet‘ when there’s a new operating system.

As you’ll be able to see there are a few columns, where the most important ones are ‘End of mainstream support’ and ‘End of extended support’. Mainstream support means that the operating system in question will stop receiving new features, services and product tweaks. This does not mean that you will stop receiving security updates, which is the most important part of the Windows Updates. However the extended support does mean the operating system will stop receiving security updates from Microsoft. As shown through their table, Windows Vista ends 11 April 2017, Windows 7 ends 14 January 2020 and Windows 8 ends 10 January 2023. Realistically if you haven’t updated Windows 7 to a newer operating system in 2020 we’ll be surprised.

We personally would suggest updating to Windows 10, as with its privacy features disabled, we found Windows 10 to be one of the best, if not the best OS that Microsoft has produced. Creating a blend between Windows 8’s interface and the power-user functionalities of Windows 7, whilst also incorporating Direct X12, that provides PC gamers with a healthy boost in performance.

Either way, we don’t think Microsoft’s attempts of forcing users to upgrade are fully justified. Every user should be presented with an option and given that Windows is a paid product and service, Microsoft has taken a lot of flak by tricking users to upgrade to Windows 10.
