"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

This does not do it.
The upgrade is already downloaded, because we have a domain it's not in the notification area.
if you open windows update and click optional updates you will see it there. you can right click on it and chose hide it and that what I am looking for.
but I can't do it to 300 machines manually, it will have to be done through a group policy or a batch script or something

Open Windows Update, click on the link below the Windows 10 blurb to open up updates. Under Optional, uncheck Windows 10, right click on the update and Hide it. OK and then proceed with updates. You may have to hide it twice but it works for me.
