Not that I know of. Perhaps Fay can tell you more as she is installing Windows 10 on her computer.

I guess I am missing something. What kind of e-mail are you talking about. What did it say?

I did not cancel mine, so the update install was downloaded on my computer. Then later , Then later a notice poped up telling me it was ready to install. Think I had to click on it to install, but since I wanted to install it , I did not look to see if there was a way to not have in install.
But I do not understand about the e-mail you got- was it just telling you that you could download if you wanted?

Fay, you may remember that I canceled my "10" reservation, but, since then I've received 2 emails from Microsoft that basically says You’ve reserved Windows 10 – what’s next? and they're acting as though I did not cancel my reservation...it also says: You’ve already reserved, so your free upgrade is on the way. This is the largest software upgrade event ever and we’re managing it so everyone has a great experience.
Your notification to upgrade could come as soon as a few days or in a few weeks.

So I had asked Repa if there was any way they could put it on my computer even though I canceled....I really don't think that is possible....just thought he would know....

Not sure why you are getting that since you cancelled.  I think Repa had you uninstal some updates.
I did a quick search about preventing windows 10 download an it said to uninstall KB3035583.  That is probably the one Repa had you get rid of .  If not, uninstall that.
But I do not think that is the one that actually download win 10,  I am not sure what it is.

It ended up popping a window , I think I had to click on to actually install but not sure.  
There should be some way you can check to make sure it is cancelled, but I am not sure how.
Wish I could be more help

hmmmm, just found this while doing a search
Quote :
scammers impersonating Microsoft have begun sending out emails informing individuals that they are eligible to upgrade to Windows 10. The email appears to come from an official Microsoft address, update@microsoft.com,

But I doubt that is what your e-mail is, I think it said this one had a fake update attached.

Yes, this is the uninstalled KB3035583, & it's my understanding that you have to have it installed in order to get the free 10 upgrade...so I should be good...
Thanks fay!

WC,

I think you are doing the right thing by not doing the upgrade now.

I have 2 FB friends, that I know of that installed the update. One has a computer degree and is dealing with issues, but had to take her expensive tablet in Microsoft to get it fixed. The other is not very computer literatee, at least I do not think so, she just posted that she reverted to 7 - too many problems to deal with right now. I do not know how she reverted to 7 , did not ask. Not sure why she chose to do the upgrade.

And as I said , I am not doing it to my main computer.

I told my sister and brother-in-law there is probably no reason for them to do it. They do not use their computer much and do not like to deal with computer problems.

I have to try to take some time to play around with it some. Gotta work up the energy to do that.

Fay
