Microsoft now awfully pushy with Windows 10 on Win 7, 8 PCs – Reg readers hit back

Had the same experience as Mark

As mentioned in another thread, I started here: http://www.ghacks.net/2015/04/17/how-to-remove-windows-10-upgrade-updates-in-windows-7-and-8/

and then did these Registry hacks: http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_7-update/how-to-cancel-windows-10-upgrade-for-now/71a30488-8171-48fe-9a4d-728b4081bfd3?auth=1

So far, so good, after a few reboots and a Windows Update check (it's set to notify me of new updates, but installation is done manually).
