Ever since Windows 10 upgrade was released, we’ve been asked to stop its installation now and in the future. Here is the registry patch we use to disable the upgrade, stop Windows 10 notifications and prevent the PC from downloading installation files in the background.
This registry patch is more useful than ever, as in another attempt to push users to upgrade to Windows 10, Microsoft has introduced an even more elaborate full-screen notification pop-up that some call intrusive and aggressive. In the past Microsoft has faced criticism too for forcing automatic upgrade on users of Windows 7 and Windows 8, but this upgrade can be disabled with a simple registry modification.
