Reg policy to disable Windows 10 upgrade

on Sat 26 Sep 2015 - 23:44
Apologies if this has already been suggested somewhere in the forum, but I came across a handy way to disable the Window 10 (flag/app) waiting to upgrade you.

DISABLE
Code:
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\GWX]
"DisableGwx"=dword:00000001

Import that into your registry and reboot.  It is a policy that disables the Windows 10 upgrade, which can be easily reversed when you do want to upgrade.

ENABLE
Code:
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\GWX]
"DisableGwx"=dword:00000000

that would be nice as a new component, which would also remove:

Folders:
Windows\System32\GWX
Windows\SysWOW64\GWX
Windows\System32\appraiser

Files:
Windows\System32\appraiser.dll

Source:

its written in german, but it says that the appraiser.dll is collecting harware IDs and checking if the system is compatible with win10. The collected data is stored at the System/syswow64 -> appraiser folder

im not sure if there are some more files
