Pavilion Slimline: Stop the automatic download of Windows 10

How can I prevent the automatic download of Windows 10?  I have the Home Edition of Windows 7 that works very well.  I tried the update of Windows 10 twice and it does not recognize my CD/DVD drive.  I started Windows 7 and that you want to keep it this way, but Windows keeps trying to automatically download Windows 10.  I changed my Windows Update setting to notify me when there are updates but do not download or install.  I think that would stop it, but it didn't.  Can someone help me?  My PC is seven years old.  Windows 10 works fine on my laptop and my wife's office, but they are only 2 years old.

Hello Mrlefty,

Nothing wrong with the help of Windows 7.

The fact that the CD was not recognized win 10 could be just a matter of making a Nick registration, but no less...

If you want to stop the upgrade of Windows contained 10 horse, or download, as I do this is to install a small piece of software called GWX Panel by ultimate Outsider.

Ultimate outsider - software downloads

Click on the link above and download it. There is also a guide explaining how to use it, but the Panel is little explicit, once opened.

If you have any other questions, let me know.

  • Stop the automatic download of the driver?

    Maybe it's nothing to do with the HP software, but confirmation of this would be very useful. I have a LaserJet P1006 that works very well with the 'original' driver assistance. Whenever I have run Windows 7 (I use an iMac) a driver for the HP Color LaserJet 2800 PS Series is automatically downloaded, registered under devices and printers as "HP LaserJet P1006-1", and it becomes the default printer. Printing is then impossible Windows, until I deleted this driver and returned to the original "LaserJet P1006" driver. Until the Color LaserJet printer is deleted, it is the only printer shown, although there is also a DeskJet which then becomes available.

    Device settings are set to "never install the driver from Windows update." Windows Update is set to "Download updates but let me choose whether to install them".

    I would be really grateful for any suggestions on how to stop the automatic download of the incorrect driver.

    Santa brought iPads for our 3 children, but it seems that certain documents are automatically downloaded against our intention.

      • I don't know if our 6 year old is ready for AC/DC.
    • In the past, we have bought a lot of books ended up on the iPad, including self-help books somehow.

    Does anyone have any ideas? Is there a reason that bought the material was downloaded automatically?

    p.s. - We bought the iPad 2 model Mini for each of them.

    When I click on a link of file (for example "setup.exe" or "") of a Web site, on what it asks you where I save the file and indicates the size of the file, but the download has already started in the background before I clicked Save.

    The solution came through the cat of Acer service. Acer technician Mukesh was very nice and patient, we tried all possible options, but the auto-rotation option was not available, the only way to recover is to install the proposed pilots:

  • How to disable the automatic updates of windows and to update on demand

    At the same time, I had disabled the automatic updates of windows and updated on demand by opening windows update.  Where is the place to activate and deactivate the automatic updates of windows.

    It worked.  Thank you!

    I wasn't able to get automatic updates to download a microsoft windows update.  The fix for microsoft in default mode indicated that he needed to be repaired and that fixed it.  When windows update was used again the update has failed once again.  The fix even that it was then run in aggressive mode and with a recheck has failed to correct the problem.  At each restart, automatic updates took the time to start producing a yellow shield and then pop-up reminders.  So thank you to help us with these questions to disable the automatic updates of windows.

    Thanks for posting the results of your efforts, I don't know they will be read and appreciated.
