Hey all,

 

I'm trying to check for updates on Windows 7 and I get the following:

 

"Windows update cannot currently check for updates, because you must first restart the computer so that a previous installation can be completed"

 

In the updates available area it says "Your upgrade to Windows 10 is ready"......I don't want the Win 10 update.

 

I've gone through everything I can find to remove the Win 10 update crap and everything Microsoft gives on troubleshooting the Win 7 updater, but nothing seems to be working.

 

Does anyone know how to convince the system that Win 10 doesn't need to be installed?

I previously tried GWX to no avail.  The problem was, my system had already attempted to install Win 10 and wouldn't allow any Win 7 updates until the Win 10 installation was complete.  I did a system restore and ran GWX again.  I also turned off automatic updates, that's what got me into this mess in the first place.  Problem cured...for now.  Until the Win 10 virus attempts to change my system again!

 

Thanks for the response!
