I have two updates showing from windows 7, but I'm suspicious these may be some

tricky things to give me win 10 when I don't want it....KB3035583 and KB3173040, can

anyone explain these for me?

thanks

don

Did you Google both of the numbers?

 

I did the first one and found:

 

This update installs the Get Windows 10 app that helps users understand their Windows 10 upgrade options and device readiness. For more information about Windows 10

Did you ever run Never10?

It's still effective as far as I know.

You should be fine then. The point of Never10 is to keep these updates from executing, not prevent them from being offered to you. Never10 also prevents the download of the upgrade files so that it doesn't take extra disk space.

You should be safe to apply all updates without being upgraded to Windows 10.

On the flipside, you only have about a week left to upgrade for free.  So if you are even considering it, now is the time.  ;)

If you ever do change your mind, you can always just run Never10 again and it will allow you to (re)enable the upgrade functionality.
