I don't want it on this PC, nor did I sign up to be notified when it is available, etc.

Good old KB3035583 is installed on your system (MS update)

I'm wondering what all those failed updates are about....

Odd thing is, I've never gotten any notifications about upgrading to Windows 10, either in my system tray, or on the Widows Update page, but I just checked my installed updates, and KB3035583 was there. Since, I don't plan to update from Windows 7, I uninstalled it. After I rebooted, I checked for Windows Updates and it didn't show up. I suppose at some point, it will, and I'll have to add it to the list of hidden updates.

that did it, TY! PS saw this on Reddit earlier- it wasn't me! Some guy had W10 install on him overnight and he didn't know it. The original rant was removed, sadly.

Having done the update to Win 10 I know you have to agree to it sounds like another click through and don't RTFM. I have also done the rollback to 8.1 on my laptop and that went flawlessly

During or after install does it require Win7/8 validation ? I have a 'corporate( enterprise?) install' their validation worked fine after setup, but Windows reject it for stuff like burning a 7 disk.

Having had some trouble with win7 pro keys lately I am not too sure what MS is doing. Both genuine COA keys one works one wont validate. But to answer your question yes it does ask for a key if you upgrade. Something like Belarc adviser should find your old key. Running the Beta as a clean install on my old laptop just meant using the product key from the download page.

Click on the KB3035583 entry in the search results and you will be asked if you are sure you want to uninstall it. Click Yes to remove it.

The system may need to be restarted to complete the removal.

If you do not want to see the update any more be sure to hide it by right clicking on the KB3035583 listing in Windows Update and selecting Hide this update.

It is not shown under the lists of 'available updates;' so how can I hide it?
