Never10 does NOT prevent the installation of Windows updates, includingthe infamous Get Windows 10 (GWX) update KB3035583.

Never10 simplyemploys Microsoft's documented and sanctioned configuration settings toinstruct it NOT to change the installed version of Windows.

The name “Never 10” is a bit of an overstatement, since this utility may also be used to easily re-enable Windows operating system automatic upgrading.

Many users of Windows 7 and 8.1 are happy with their current version of Windows, and have no wish to upgrade to Windows 10.

There are many reasons for this, but among them is the fact that Windows 10 has become controversial due to Microsoft's evolution of their Windows operating system platform into a service which, among other things, aggressively monitors and reports on its users activities.

This alone makes many users uncomfortable enough to cause them to choose to wait.

In line with this, a few months into 2016, Windows 10 started displaying unsolicited advertisements on its users' desktops.

Others dislike the changes Microsoft made by merging their failed “tiled” smartphone user-interface into the Windows UI.

And, finally, some object to being force-fed whatever Microsoft wants and simply wish to choose for themselves.In July of 2015, responding to the significant user backlash, Microsoft added features to its Windows Update facility which allow it to be configured, on a machine-by-machine basis, to forcibly upgrade qualifying Windows 7 and 8.1 operating systems to Windows 10.However, Microsoft did not make this configuration simple.It requires the use of the group policy editor (which is not present in some qualifying systems) and/or the system registry.In other words, they created some deep internal configuration options but chose not to provide a simple user-interface to give their users the choice. The elegance of this “Never 10” utility, is that Using this utility, inexperienced users will be able to easily use Never10 themselves, while advanced users will likely appreciate that fact that no additional software is installed and will be able to refer friends and family, whom they support, to this easy-to-use utility.Never10 v1.3 adds quiet command-line options for enterprise users.
