A utility for fast, free, and simple Windows 10 uninstallation

Windows 10 Rollback UtilityHave you suddenly found yourself with an unwanted, un-needed, or unasked for copy of Windows 10? Friends or family complaining of an unexpected update to an operating system they don’t know how to use – and can’t figure out how to (safely) get rid of?

Our Windows 10 uninstallation utility lets you or anyone you know quickly and easily revert back to Windows 7 or Windows 8… painlessly. While millions of PCs around the globe are suddenly being updated to Windows 10 without the express notice and consent of their unwitting owners, the bigger problem is the ones that fall between the cracks: an automated update gone wrong, left with a PC that won’t start, and no longer works.

We are happy to introduce the immediate availability of our Windows 10 Rollback Utility, a free tool designed to make switching back to Windows 7 (or Windows 8) as easy as a small download and a few clicks. What’s more, it’ll even protect your PC from automatically updating to Windows 10 in the future, too. (Unless you ask it to, of course.)

The Windows 10 Rollback Utility is based off of Easy Recovery Essentials for Windows, our powerful suite of automated PC diagnostic and repair software. Once you’ve downloaded the repair utility on a PC – any PC, not necessarily the one that’s not working – all you have to do is copy it to a USB, CD, or DVD and start up your PC that you want to roll back to Windows 7 or Windows 10. Click on the video below to see just how easy it really is:

Extended instructions are available on the download page, and support is available in our friendly community forums. The Windows 10 Uninstall Utility supports all PCs, laptops, netbooks, and tablets that can boot from an external device and we have clear, simple, and easy-to-follow instructions and tutorials on every step of the process.

We’ve worked hard to make this Windows 7 and Windows 8 restore tool as user-friendly as possible – hopefully good enough so that you can send virtually anyone you know that’s suffering from an unwanted or failed Windows 10 upgrade our way and we’ll help them set their PC straight.

Let us know in the comments below or in the forums how your Windows 10 rollback experience went – we always want to hear from our users. Suggestions, constructive criticism, and complements are always welcome.

    1. Thanks for creating and sharing the Windows 10 Rollback Utility. I tried it today on a Sony VAIO that had been inadvertently upgraded to Windows 10 from Windows 7 over 30 days ago.

      Unlike your demonstration video, there was no “Windows 7 (Archived) 64-Bit Edition (D:)” or similar partition listed, just “Windows 10 64-Bit Edition (C:) 918GiB”.

      Does your rollback utility require a factory restore partition to be present? Or for less than 30 days to have elapsed since the upgrade to Windows 10?



    2. Hi Miles,

      Unfortunately after 30 days Microsoft has coded Windows 10 to delete all remaining traces of the previous installation to free up space on your disk.

      After the thirty days have passed, recovery is unfortunately no longer possible.

    3. @Miles: Awesome site; I just got lots browsing your collections, posts, and archives. If you’re ever interested in putting those writing and research talents to good use, do let me know!

    4. Just a FWIW…
      For those that do NOT want WIN10 at all,
      then go to Steve Gibson’s site & D/L & run his
      “Never10” free app. It’s just 82kb & does not install.

      Just run it & you’ll never see any more upgrade to WIN10 nags.

      All the required info is on the page.
      Stay safe..

    5. Hi Mahmoud,

      “Awesome site; I just got lots browsing your collections, posts, and archives.”

      Thanks for your kind words. Glad you found the site to be of some small use.

      “If you’re ever interested in putting those writing and research talents to good use, do let me know!”

      Happily, I am putting my meager talents to good use already – pure delight!

    6. I bought a new computer which has windows 10 pre installed need to down grade it to either 7 or 8 for my job as the programs are not compatiable with 10 how can I do this

    7. i brought new laptop few days ago and its windows 8 installed i want to upgrade it to windows 10 but there are so many data in C drive will it effect my data ? can i upgrade it to windows 10 now i have licence version please guide me my laptop is Dell Core i7.

    8. Hi, with this tool, my data keep safe or I will lost them during the rollback operation from windows10 to 8?
      Thanks a lot

    9. Hi, can I use this to remove a partial failed Windows 10 upgrade from my Windows 7 computer? The upgrade got stuck on 99% and never completed but it has done something because when I start my computer I get the black screen of death, even though the computer is still running Windows 7. I just want whatever has happened as part of the failed upgrade to be gone…

    10. Not to be rude, but this rollback utility is completely useless lol. Windows actually lets you rollback within a month, so there’s no need for this utility.

    11. Utility CD doesn’t appear to work at all on any PC I’ve tried it on… always goes to a grub rescue prompt. Set command shows hd31 is assigned to prefix and root on ever PC I tried it on no matter how many physical drives exist. Something seems to be wrong with the current download iso file content. IDK.

    12. I used Nero. The CD it made from the ISO image is perfectly readable I can view all the files and folders… so what’s the difference may I ask? Note that I burned the ISO file to a CD, not USB… is the ISO image only supposed to work on a USB thumbdrive?

    13. Note from your description of the utility above, “… all you have to do is copy it to a USB, CD, or DVD…”. I burned it to a CD using Nero and the CD image is perfectly readable. Is that a problem?

      Also above you directed people to ask questions in the support forums only, which I did and the only reply I received was to post my question to your comments here… LOL! I feel so confused at this point. Arghhh!

    14. Ok… so the ISO file for Windows 10 Rollback Utility only works with the NeoSmart burning programs then. I did not know that. The resulting CD I just burned appears to be working quite differently than the same CD burned with Nero (even though the CD contents appear to be identical). I got a graphical environment and the option to run Easy Recovery Essentials this time (which I am currently doing). Will let you know how it turns out…. but thanks!

    15. Well no joy… doesn’t appear to be any archived OS, no Rollback option appears. I guess now I’m stuck trying to find a fix for this busted Win 10 upgrade… not sure why there isn’t an archived OS since this pc never managed to actually boot into Win 10 it craters long before the Win 10 GUI starts.

    16. Well, never had any problem with burning CD’s even bootable ones with Nero before so… at any rate, even after purchasing the full Easy Repait/Recovery Utility yesterday and trying it this machine is still un-bootable; I’ve pretty much given up on Win 10, it’s toast! Looks like I’ll be reformatting and putting Win 7 back on it and keeping it at Win 7 for the foreseeable future. Regards and thanks!

    17. Hi, I have only just come across your website & therefore program to ‘rollback’ a disliked Windows 10 back to Windows 7 – however am I too late? The PC is a refurbished one that came with Windows 7 – the product key is obviously ok- I have had the PC for a year & I haven’t had any ‘not a genuine copy of windows’ message or similar. I ‘upgraded’ to Windows 10 from the 7 easily enough, but now some months later I am sick of Windows 10 & just want my Windows 7 back, but of course the 30 day or 10 day official MS allowable ‘downgrade’ period has passed. I have just last night ‘reset’ the Windows 10 back to a clean start hoping that I would be left with Windows 7 again (seeings that was the original OS, but alas no – all I got was a cleaned up ‘original’ version of Windows 10. So I am thinking if that didn’t recover back Windows 7 & there are no ‘Windows 7 old’ files on the PC will this tool work (to reinstall Windows 7)?
      Eventually I would like to have a triple boot system with a Linux distro / Windows 7 / Windows 10 (only because 7 will inevitably not be supported in time), but that is for a different day – the priority is to get Windows 7 back at the moment.
      Many thanks for a reply,

    18. Thank you for the effort of not just creating but utmsot sharing Windows 10 Rollback Utility unto the public. Yes, I’m a little late in upgrading my laptop for the reason that my colleagues said that Windows 10 sucks. But I guess they’re wrong. But there’s this one question that keeps on running on my mind. Does your rollback utility require a factory restore partition to be present?

    19. My computer has been acting up since I upgraded to Windows 10, and I’ve been thinking of reverting back to Windows 8. This is really useful. Thanks!

    20. I can not use this tool.
      When I choose the automatic repair function, the software requires a license to use. Please help me.

    21. Hello, I did try to use the tool on a Windows 10 Upgrade from Windows 7 and wanted to rollback. Sadly the button ” get started” in the recovery part of Windows 10 did not work, so I used your tool which told me: ” This installation of Windows is too new etc………check for an updated release.”
      Is there an updated Version of your tool?
      Thanks a lot for helping.
