    Windows 10 is great but the forced upgrades are ridiculous. As far as I can tell there is no known way to permanently disable the updates. If you disable the update service, there are scheduled tasks that run regularly to re-enable them. If you cancel the scheduled tasks, as soon as you reboot your computer they get added back. The possible solution is that there should be a registry key you can set to alert you that windows 10 updates are available instead of automatically installing them.

It can be disabled completely, but you probably only want to disable Windows software updates, and continue the Windows OS updates. Both options are shown here:

Problem with Windows 8.1 updates.

Windows 10 will only install if you have all the earlier updates
sometimes hundreds of updates are missed.
even if it says no upgrades and is green
always click on check for updates, service packs and versions of internet explorer will be installed, However if you dont want to see the upgrade to 10 you can always turn off auto updates and check yourself when you have the time to install them yourself.
