Windows – Removing Windows Technical Preview from Windows Update

windows updatewindows-10-preview

Windows 10 Technical Preview question, running Windows 7 as my base OS.

Before I noticed the .iso files that were available, I ran an .exe from the Microsoft preview website that apparently configured my Windows Update to download an update called "Update for Windows." If I open Windows Update, it asks if I want to "Upgrade to Windows Technical Preview." I do not want this update now that I have the .iso to virtualize.

If I try to hide this update, it reappears! I want to get rid of that update, so how do I do it?
