Confirmed: How to stop Windows 10 forcing itself onto PCs – your essential guide

Exackly. In fact GWX Control Panel does precisely the registry hack, only you don't have to see the details (that's the first button) as well as optionally removing any W10 downloads that might have sneaked onto your computer while you weren't looking (second button). Plus, if you don't delete the download, you can always go back and run it again to *restore* the registry and therefore the GWX app, and go ahead with the W10 "up" grade.

You did read the instructions, right?

;-)
