I have downloaded Windows 10 and scheduled installation for this evening. I would now like to delay installation as I am worried about my old Microsoft Money and want to investigate further. How can I reschedule or cancel my download?

Wow.... this is probably a bit too late and after the fact to provide much help, but.....
I've found this little application invaluable when it comes to taming the annoyance that is the "Windows 10 Upgrade".

Sorry I was late to the party and didn't see your post until just now.
How did you manage?
It's likely that you already had the $WINDOWS.~BT folder downloaded to the root of your C drive so even unplugging from the internet probably wouldn't have stopped it, without deleting that folder which contains the install.esd file that the update uses to upgrade you to Windows 10

Unplug the interne and turn off the computer if you have not finished the upgrade, all it does is
FAIL to upgrade then you have time. to make a restorable image....
