    Window 10 update removal request

    I don't know about the rest of you but I'm extremely annoyed with getting the Win 10 update notification popping up on my screen. Every couple of months I need to go in and change the settings to block it but today is different.

    I have already gone in and deleted the KB3035583 file and it's nowhere to be found but the notification keeps popping up every time I launch my browser. Is there any way to stop this from appearing on my screen?

    Help will be very much appreciated.

    Thank you.
