      1. Use Disk Cleanup to remove outdated Windows updates.

      2. Uninstall KB2952664.

      @ Kirsty, I tried your suggestion last night and I could not get it to work. I don’t understand the last numbers in the command line, like 6.1.1.0. Where does it come From?

      @ MrBrian, I am about to try your solution in a few. Will let you know how it goes. I’m up in age and down in knowledge. Just trying to keep my desktop original until 2020, then I will decide which way I can go. Am running a 9 year old OS on a 9 year old HP desktop with 1 TB HHD, 6GB RAM, so it is plenty fast and lots of HD space to work with.

      MrBrian, Your method worked!!! I have rebooted (restarted) twice and the offending KB 2952664 is gone and I ran Windows U pdate twice and it did not appear. My questions now are: Have all residuals been taken off? Are all entries in the Registry been taken out?

        Good to hear that :).

        It should be gone if you uninstalled it. If you have doubts, you can check that task Microsoft Compatibility Appraiser doesn’t appear in Task Scheduler in location Task Scheduler Library > Microsoft > Windows > Application Experience.

      I ran the disk ch and an unchecked item was recent updates and I checked it and the clicked on delete. I have checked everywhere for that KB and it was nowhere to be found. I will tinker with registry editor and see if I find anything. Thanks

      Windows 7 update has 2952664 for download after it was hidden. The was listed as a windows 10 nuisance. I hid this again.

      I have no intention of ever downloading Windows 10 and followed all the directions about uninstalling and hiding KB3035583 and kb2952664. I have windows 7 home.

      That update will appear periodically and just hide it every time it appears. You will have no problem with it. I, too, am running an HP series 6000, 6GB RAM, 1TB HHD (Original windows 7 sp1 x64 home premium desktop.
