    Please how can I resolve this problem? Thanks.
    unfortunately, win10 is essentially malware and will try to force its way into whatever you do on your PC
    the only way to fix this is to reinstall the OS of your choice, if you cannot do this then i am not sure how i can help you any further

    Turn it on flight mode and unplug the ethernet. Problem solved temporarily. You should be able to cancel the update then.

    Impossible. Not saying you're lying but def saying they might be lying lol Screen shot it, let me run ya through
    indeed, it is not impossible as windows 10 can now force updates and upgrades regardless of what the end user chooses

    There's def a way to stop it, I keep doing it. In fact I think it's given up on me, I haven't seen it in a while. Maybe because I postponed the date till a week from the attempted date. I also keep rebooting my pc so...

    if by rebooting you mean completely reinstalling your OS then yes, the update that adds GWX.exe (the annoying little nagware program that constantly asks you to update to win10) will no longer be installed, as the free upgrade to windows 10 no longer applies to newer installs of older Windows OS'

    Annoying notifications kept coming up and I rejected them so many times. Then it said it will download in 8 hours in automatic update. I did change the update setting, but window 10 time are still counting down. I panicked and I don't know what to do.

    I have tried on the computer with Windows 10 at school - I don't like it because it's just new animations and sometimes it is slow for me. I prefer window 8 - for me it is a simple design and I don't often use the boxy things. I don't play games on my laptop and I only used for working. I'm scared if they changed things like my documents.

    Please how can I resolve this problem? Thanks.

    P.S.
    Sorry for bad English
    It's not so bad. I was the same as you once but now I realise that Windows 10 is really for my own good. We are all better off with Windows 10. Windows 10 is faster. Windows 10 is safer. Windows 10 is truth. Join us, and come alive, and feel Windows 10 come alive in you. One day, all will return to Windows 10, from whence indeed everything came.*






    *Well, from Windows 95. But let me tell you a secret:

    9+5 = 14, 1+4 = 5.
    9+5+14+5 = 32. 3+2 = 5.
    5+5 = 10.

    Doesn't the universe make much more sense now?

    I've had some issues with Windows 10 but nowhere near as many as I had with 8. 8 really wasn't remotely good. 8.1 was bearable. I can't really remember Windows 7 having problems; it did its job well enough & I don't recall any major issues with it.

    I know use 10 & I haven't looked back. It's now very stable & the file structures, start menu etc are all straight forward enough.
