Windows 10 Home – disable aniversary update 1607

http://www.infoworld.com/article/3105827/microsoft-windows/how-to-temporarily-block-the-upgrade-win10-anniversary-update-version-1607.html

Step 1. Go to KB 3073930 and download Microsoft’s Wushowhide tool. (Click the link marked “Download the ‘Show or hide updates’ troubleshooter package now.”) Drag the downloaded file, Wushowhide.diagcab, to any convenient location.

Step 2. Double-click on Wushowhide.diagcab to run it. Click the link marked Advanced. Uncheck the box marked “Apply repairs automatically.” Click Next.

Step 3. Wushowhide will run for a long, long time. When it comes back up for air, click the link to Hide Updates. If you see a checkbox marked “Feature update to Windows 10, version 1607,” check the box next to the item and click Next. (If you don’t see “Feature update to Windows 10, version 1607,” the upgrade isn’t being sent to your box yet. Check again tomorrow.)

Step 4. Click Close. You’re done.

If you don’t trust Microsoft’s wushowhide tool, you can verify for yourself that it hid the Anniversary Update (GNE: only after you make a restart without updates). Go back to Windows Update (Start > Settings > Update & security, then Check for Updates) your machine should show “Your device is up to date.” The Anniversary Update didn’t get installed, as you can verify by typing winver down in the Cortana search box.
