Prevent Windows 7 from upgrading to Windows 10

I tried avoiding the win 10 nag popup by manually reviewing and blocking updates. This became tiresome, especially since microsoft renames and reenables the stuff I thought I blocked.

Found out there is a better solution for this.
Install this patch:

Run this as a registry file:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WindowsUpdate\OSUpgrade]
"AllowOSUpgrade"=-
"KickoffDownload"=-
"KickoffSource"=-
"ReservationsAllowed"=-
"OSUpgradeInteractive"=-

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WindowsUpdate\OSUpgrade\State]
"OSUpgradeState"=dword:00000001
"OSUpgradePhase"=-

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate]
"DisableOSUpgrade"=dword:00000001

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