I need help suite KB3080351 & MS answer Desk is clueless

I want to block permanently guests Windows 10 upgrade on my computer Windows 7 Pro X 64, and there is a KB3080351 article that gives measures to this end the deadlock:


However, I can't follow the steps for one of the methods listed:

Group Policy

Computer configuration

Windows registry

I am not part of a group, and I do not understand how to get to the Configuration of the computer.

So that leaves the instructions of Windows registry, and I've never had problems with the help of the registry editor in the past. But the instructions State:

To block the upgrade to Windows 10 via Windows Update, specify the following registry value:

Subkey: HKLM\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate
Value DWORD: DisableOSUpgrade = 1

However, when I browse the registry to HKLM\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\ editor - no. WindowsUpdate listed there.

Someone know how I can find the WindowsUpdate in the registry?


Some editions of Windows 7 (Home Premium, Home Basic edition and Starter) do not come with Group Policy Editor (GPE).  Only Windows 7 Professional, Enterprise and Ultimate editions come with the Group Policy Editor installed, but the registry is the same...  Even if your version of Windows does not GPE, you always control of GPOs through direct registry edit.

Some Group Policy objects (GPO) do not exist in the registry until after the GPO is enabled or changes state.

You're looking for the key will not exist in the registry until you use Group Policy Editor to "light" setting, then the key is created and filled with the correct DWORD value (or you can manually create the key and DWORD).

As your version of Windows is GPE, click the round starting and in the type box:

Group Policy

Then select "Edit Group Policy" and go here:

Computer Configuration / Administrative Templates / Windows Components / Windows Update

Find the setting 'Disable the upgrade to the latest version of Windows through Windows Update', double click, enable and click OK to save the settings:

Out of MCP and you will see that the registry key was created (on the right?  right.) :
