I'm pulling my hair out here. I "upgraded" to W11 on launch day, but use a Ryzen CPU. Obviously performance issues on my generation of CPU are well known now, so I rolled back to W10 on my 10th day (thought I'd give MS a chance to fix it, but their update made things worse somehow).
Anyway, this is now causing me big issues. W11 is automatically downloading. It gives me no "would you like to download" or anything like that. Nope, it just does it itself without any prompts.
I've turned off TPM since, but in Windows Updates (settings) it shows that W11 is 100% downloaded, and I'm not dreading turning off my computer. If W11 does install again, will I be given another 10 days to roll back to W10, or will the 10 day timer go from when I first installed this?
Surely W11 shouldn't install right after the rollback to W10. This is ridiculous.

Hello, thank you for this topic!
I think you should ask for help - Microsoft technical support - I am very curious what steps will be recommended to remove this problem that needs an official solution!
MTC - is not Microsoft technical support - of course Forum Members help, but automatic system update is assigned the highest privileges!

This is one of the discussions in which the same problem occurred in the Insider program:

@Hannah1024 Unfortunately not. I rolled back a total of 6 times, each leading to another automatic update back to Windows 11 even after making my system not compatible with W11.
So as I write this now, I'm on Windows 11. It was impossible to stop, impossible to roll back for any longer than a hour, impossible to get any official support on this matter.
Sorry I couldn't give you better news :(

@Christopher_P_S I just tried the registry edit tip in the how-to-geek page I shared. It worked for me. I'm back on windows 10 without it trying to install windows 11. I hope this works for you also.

Please provide feedback so that the Microsoft Team can develop official solutions:

If other solutions do not work - then removing the Windows11 installer by a clean installation can help:
