Brink has a registry mod that has blocked GWX (so far) It has stopped the windows update download and GWX

even after doing a clean install of windows 8.1 - I applied the .reg file and downloaded all the windows updates..

GWX was download as the files and folders are there - but never ran and I never was shown the windows 10 update through windows update.

Get Windows 10 Icon - Remove from Taskbar in Windows 7 and 8.1 - Windows 10 Forums
Option 3

I went back to windows 8.1 as I have way to many issues with windows 10..
