This is how you do it.
The manual method is easy enough but if you get something wrong in Registry, it can be terminal. Lucky for you, there is a download link to two REG files. Download and run both to stop the constant requests.
If you have a Windows 7 machine, especially an early one, you may well be saving yourself a lot of grief. My thinking is that you shouldn’t try to upgrade a pre-2011 computer because decent hardware support before that date may not be good enough. The last thing that you want is a computer working on the brink.
I think that it was a nice gesture on the part of Microsoft to offer Windows 10 to Windows 7 users, but somebody in the planning stages forgot to mention that older machines may not fare too well.
Moving onwards and upwards:
Machines running Windows 8/8.1, NOT upgraded from 7 to 8, but those that started life with Windows 8, will have a much better chance of being ok. They are newer and generally better supported, and Windows 8/8.1 drivers can work very well for Windows 10.
So, you people should NOT apply the ‘fixes’ found in the website link above. Get Windows 10 while you can because it is an uprated Windows 8/8.1 which will continue to get improvements and support for a long time to come.
By the way, you may look at the replies to Ed Bott’s article and some are not pretty, but anything about Windows 10 attracts trolls and naysayers, just as Windows 8, 7, Vista, XP, 2000, ME, 98, 95 and Windows 3/3.1/3.11 all did..
