Thanks for that. It's good to see Windows 7 starter edition is also included. I never quite liked it on my Acer netbook, so this might be a way of getting rid of it and trying out Win 10 at the same time.

Today the update advert ^ was installed on my laptop (and it won't exit),
Have you tried this? How to block Windows 10 Upgrade notifications in earlier versions of Windows
I have followed this instruction:
Wasn't Windows 10 supposed to be free?
http://www.techsuppo...g-how-get-rid-it.htm (regarding KB3035583) "All About the Windows 10 Upgrade App Including How to Get Rid of it"
Uninstall KB3035583. The next time Windows Update will promote KB3035583, just hide it.

It came as a chock to me, but it seems Real Life can be different from what the teacher said!  :o

I removed KB3035583 all right, but somehow the icon from Windows 10 Upgrade App is still showing up in my "notification area" (Win 7):

2015-06-06_095846.png

- but will disappear when my mouse comes close! Weird, isn't it?

It's not "comes and goes", but it stays away until next time Windows has booted.

Do "you" know where I can expect to find (and delete) this icon? this icon that really isn't there? that isn't there until next time I start up Windows?
 :tellme:

-----------
Modified several times:

in "Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Notification Area Icons" I clicked hide, and at first the icon went away, but after re-boot, it was back (and goes away when the mouse pointer gets close). So, the icon is hidden, but is still visible, without being there. This is getting confusing!

I haven't had to deal with this problem yet, but according to the Ghacks article, there is more than one update that needs to be disabled:

Quote
If you are using Windows 7, locate the following updates: 3035583, 2952664, 3021917
If you are using Windows 8, locate the following updates: 3035583, 2976978

thanks, doctor. It seems the kb3035583 is different from most of the kind:

We have a couple laptops over here that haven't been used in 6+ months so I dragged them out, charged them up, and did the Windows Update Boogie on both of them...both are on Windows 8.1 Update 1, but after the update process, neither has offered to reserve Windows 10.

Maybe there's a delay or something and the notification pops up after a day or two. I shall wait and see. July 29 is still a long away off.

Innuendo, it will pop-up. I reinstalled the very laptop I am on and had an update notification with 48 hours.

I've been trying to tease a prompt out of several of mine for weeks to no avail. I'm wondering if this may have some bearing on the situation: Microsoft bars more enterprise devices from seeing Windows 10 upgrade 'nag' campaign

I've been trying to get my HP Stream7 to show me the option. I've left it plugged in and wifi'ed, installed updates... nothing yet.

I recently reinstalled Windows 7 and all the updates onto my netbook to see if I would get the pop-up. Nope! It's been a week or so and no pop-up.

I guess my netbook doesn't qualify with the minimum requirements.

Wouldn't it be terribly insulting if you had a brain implant that connected it to the internet and your brain didn't meet the requirements to update to Win 10.

This is funny today but it so feels like an issue for about the year 2022!

What would be worse is having W10 on the brain and only being able to turn off auto-updates by opening up your skull.  Maybe there will be a little door with a hinge.  The question then is do you use a key or a combination lock?  :)

Both: Microsoft would have one and the government the other. You don't need to access your brain yourself.

It may not be necessary but I do find it amusing quite often.  :)

The Apple edition would remove the brain entirely and just give the user a live-feed from Tim Cook's brain. Millions of people would line up for days before release in anticipation and eagerness for the pleasure and privilege to give up their brains for a mere sum of $5,000.

I hear they are trying to make CPUs out of wood.  That could give the term "implant" a literal meaning.

yeah, mine was installed per 20'th of May, and is still installed. I don't know what I removed five days ago!

I have stopped worrying, as I assume version 10 is not installed without my prior acceptance?

You have to reserve it first, then you'll get a notification letting you know when it's ready to install. Then you can choose when is convenient for you to make the upgrade.

Well, I found a fix for those of us who the update notification stubbornly refused to show up. I have tried this method on both of my troublesome laptops and the notification popped up immediately after.

Just copy/paste the updated batch file at the top of this Microsoft Community web page into your text editor, save it, and run it from an Administrator-enabled command prompt.

Provided you have all the required updates already installed, when the script finishes, you'll have the icon you seek sitting in your taskbar.

Hope this helps.

I tried that and it still wouldn't show up on my Netbook. Now I'm even more certain that it doesn't meet the minimum requirements.  :'(

Netbooks are dastardly creations that are the bane of every person everywhere who has to support one of them. One of the criteria of manufacturing a netbook seemed to be to make it barely adequate to run the current Microsoft OS of the time and sometimes they didn't even do that.

I wouldn't have any sort of expectations that your netbook will be able to ever run anything except for the OS it left the factory with.
