How to stop Windows 7 & 8 from upgrading to Windows 10

In tech-tips, Windows by admin2 Comments


I have been getting asked how to stop the (now forced) Windows 10 upgrade.

I have found the solution to this. I even made it install the registry file.

To Run:
Download the file below to your desktop. Double click and run it. It will extract 2 files. Run the .bat (the icon look like a gear) as admin.

YOUR COMPUTER WILL REBOOT! So ensure you closed everything BEFORE you run my program!

I also created one to re-enable the Windows 10 upgrade.
DISABLE The Windows Upgrade ENABLE The Windows Upgrade

If you have any questions or issues shoot me a email @

Be safe!



  1. The one side effect of going through all of this is that you won’t be able to upgrade to Windows 10 in the future until you remove that registry key.

      That is indeed correct. But The clients that have use that tool and then called me to undo it so now they can. I have done 8 of them so far.
