    Reverting to widows 7 to reserve my free copy of Windows 10

    I have an hp laptop which initially had a regular "windows 7 home prem OA"

    A 'windows 8.1 of fake product key' was installed later . But I want to benefit from the offer of getting free copy of windows 10. What should I do?

    That is a hilarious marketing tactic!
    Reserve your free copy..., reserve before they're sold out?!
    Yet they want 1 billion installs within 2-3 years?!
    Better get busy!!! *Confused

  5. I got my notice and it won't go away. It is in my task bar. On reboot (Win 7 Ultimate) it pops up again. Not a big deal but I may not want it there all the time. I haven't tried many options yet to get rid of it.

    Edit: I went into the task bar properties and was able to hide it but it is part of the task bar entries now.

    Just found it in my task bar when I booted into 8.1. Makes you think, based on the info, that 10 will be the best thing since sliced bread...time will tell.

  7. Apparently it came with a windows KB update. If you uninstall that should remove it. Not sure if it would affect your "reservation" though.

    If you want to get rid the icon just uninstall KB3035583. In the future you can reinstall it and then get your free W10. You have 1 year after the release. I reserved my copy and when W10 is released it will download to my PC and notify me that it is ready to install. I can then install when I choose or not at all.

    I noticed that I have a small windows ICON on the lower right hand side of my task bar in Win8.1. When I click on it I can send my email address that I want to reserve my upgrade to Win10. Has anyone else noticed this yet??

    If you want to get rid of that thing, just type notification area in search and then set not to show. It works, I did it.
    I find this rather annoying.
