Post How to keep MS from upgrading your PC to Win 10
I run Win 7, I did the following:

Don't let GWX.exe run on your Win 7 system. (Win 8/8.1 ???)

Remove all GWX folders. This is done in GOD mode, (log on as Administrator). You must take ownership of the folders in order to delete them.

Remove GWX from all REGISTRY entries.

GWX = Get Windows X/10

There is a Win 7 update that also needs to be removed. ... KB3035583

I deleted some stuff a few months ago preventing the upgrade.
Don't have GWX.exe atm I think because of that (unless there is an update since then that had it and I didn't get that yet.
Also found out I stopped all its updates and just started updating after looking for the [KB3035583] update.

Alternatively, download GWX Control Panel. It does everything Bonecrusher has said and more.

Also a good idea to delete update [KB3139929]. It is the update that keeps asking you for updating to W10.
