I've had the GWX panel at work for about a month.
Before that, I was self monitoring. Sneaky Bass turds got the update thru again.
So far, this seems to be working.

I'd previously done the manual version of those instructions on our computers.  So far it's kept the Win 10 install away.

I am working the old school "avoid the updates" angle on the fresh Win7 install but this will be added to the mix.  It is amazing what I can find on a Sunday when I am avoiding the sermon for the day.  :smilewink:

Rename the C:/Windows/System32/GWX folder to something else and you'll never see another notification except in forums talking about it.  The folder cannot be deleted but the dumb-asses didn't name protect the thing.  It renders the update harmless after you reboot the computer.  If they catch on and re-release the update repeat the renaming..  

 

Call me in the morning!!

Had to fix the wifes win 7 this morning.  Slow a molasses's.  I plugged in a DVD with PCLOS on it and it would fly compared to Window's even running from a DVD.  She is about ready to move over to the dark side.
