Found a couple of things:

 

1.  How can I cancel my reservation? I don't want to upgrade to Windows 10 at all.

Open the Reservation app in the notification area (double click it)

Click the Hamburger menu in the upper left corner, then select View Confirmation. 

 

2.  Can I uninstall the Reservation completely from my computer?

Click Start (or press Windows key + S for Windows 8.1 users)

Type: view installed updates

Hit Enter on your keyboard

 

Look through the list for the KB3035583 and KB2976978 update.

 

Right click each update and click Uninstall.

 

 

The above is from Microsoft's Windows 10 update website...

Re: Windows update

Well I did all that and it was still trying to download  10 on the update site.

So  I let it go, and it has seemed to cure itself???

Re: Windows update

Well the problem seems to be back,but when I let it run it seems not to do any downloading and then goes on to the rest of the updates.

Some how I  knew right after I reserved this windows 10 it was a mistake!
