    Default How To Remove Windows 10 Upgrade Notification On Windows 7 And Windows 8

    Just an FYI for those wanting to get rid of the windows 10 install nag

    Earlier today, we reported that Microsoft has now started sending out notification to Windows 7 and Windows 8 users to reserve their free Windows 10 upgrade. Microsoft delivered this notification through a program which is installed through Windows update. The upgrade assistant is named GWX.exe in C:\Windows\System32\GWX.


    KB3035583 – Update enables additional capabilities for Windows Update notifications in Windows 8.1 and Windows 7 SP1



    If you are not interested in Windows 10, you can remove this program from your PC. Go to Windows Update->Installed update, remove KB3035583. Also, you need to hide the update again in windows updates to prevent it from auto installing again since this is marked “important”.

    although the security responsibility are excruciating
    i have been convinced for many years windows updates are not acceptable, and only make the product more unsafe, and unstable

    I love Windows 10, it takes a bit of getting used to but now that I use it, I wouldn't be able to go back to Windows 7 Ultimate. W10 Pro is stable and very responsive, I really like it.
