    It's not a pop-up. It's already running and in the task bar with no way to exit. So if it had been malware, it would have meant your machine was already infected so opening up an active program couldn't make it worse.

    Press the Windows key on your keyboard along with the R key. The run box should pop up. Type appwiz.cpl and click OK.

    Click on 'View Installed Updates'.

    Scroll down until you find KB3035583. Right click on it and then select 'Uninstall'.

    I wonder if we will get a key so that if we have to do a reload in the future we can re-install 10 instead of first having to install 7/8.1?

    I know that previous upgrade Windows products, you could install the 'upgrade' version on a clean hard drive by inserting the CD of the previous version as verification.

    And I wonder if it's different for OEM Windows 7/8.1 installs? With Windows 8.1 machines not coming with original disks and not having COA's (yes I know there are tools to read the key from the BIOS but a LOT of people don't know/know how to do that).... again, what if you need to do a reload later? And OEM machines with Windows 7 sometimes come with restore disks that does not prompt the user for a key.

    Hopefully MS will make it easy and provide us with an actual key to do reloads later.

    It's just a "reservation". You should still be able to opt out if you want. All it does it set you up to be notified when the free upgrade is available. That's my understanding anyway.

    From the FAQ

    What happens when I reserve?

    When you reserve, you can confirm your device is compatible with Windows 10. Between reservation and when your upgrade is ready, the files you need for the upgrade will be downloaded to your PC to make the final installation go more quickly. Then, when your upgrade is ready after July 29, 2015, you get a notification that lets you get started with your upgrade.

    If I change my mind, can I cancel my reservation?

    Yes, you can cancel your reservation at any time prior to installing Windows 10. Here’s how:

    • Right click on the Get Windows 10 App or Windows icon located in right end of the taskbar.
    • Select “Check your upgrade status”
    • Select “Cancel reservation”


    What if I have more than one Windows device—can I upgrade them all?

    Yes, you can get a free upgrade for each of your eligible Windows devices. All you need to do is make a separate reservation for each device you want to upgrade.
