View Full Version : Hide windows update win7

16-01-2016, 01:51 PM
I am having trouble hiding update KB2952664 that keeps failing. Usually I just right click on the update and then Hide update, but is not bringing up that choice.

I just get two choices:- View details and Copy details. What am I missing.?

Article has links to supposedly working instructions.

edit: sorry, misread your OP - thought you meant the GWX update.

Some forums say that this update is necessary to upgrade to win10, others say it is just a nag to get you to update. Am still unable to hid it.

Guess I will have to put up with the loading "1 of 1" each time I close down.

Have a look at http://www.howtogeek.com/228551/how-to-stop-windows-7-or-8-from-downloading-windows-10-automatically/ and see if that helps.

I always have two computers on W7 with updates disabled in Group Policy & services. I don't have any problems with them.
I have one computer on W10 which also has updates disabled, since I did this I have no trouble at all with it. Before I did this it would be corrupted by an update more often than not.
Disabling Windows updates does not effect Anti-Virus, Anti-Mal-ware software updates.
