    Just to point out, KB3163589 applies to W8 (NOT W8.1). Those running W8.1 will get KB3173040 instead.

    I'm curious was there an option to decline the upgrade to Win 10

    That one is also targeted at W7 without SP1,

    Outdated versions, so the offer is to update to SP1 or 8.1 or learn about W10.

    The other one will let you select do not notify me again,

    I got it also, and hid it. Mine didn't have anything on it about selecting do not notify me again - KB3173040.

    It will only show "Do not notify me again" if you download and install KB3173040 as shown below (lower left).

    Thank you for the info. I'm glad I hid that update....I don't want Windows 10!
