Software Deployment Question

How can you block the "recommended" Windows 10 upgrade for Windows 7 PCs?

02/03/2016 1270 views
Looks like Microsoft is REALLY wanting you to upgrade to Windows 10 by making it a recommended update for Windows 7 and Windows 8.1. What would be the best approach to keep that from happening? I have over 100 PC running Windows 7 that do NOT need Windows 10. Any ideas? ITNinja help is always appreciated.

Have you tried the options listed here?

I've also used GwxControlPanel on standalone, non domain machines. http://ultimateoutsider.com/downloads/GwxControlPanelSetup.exe
