    I ended up just removing the update because I don't wanna waste system resources on that.

    Plus like, my current computer's motherboard doesn't support UEFI and supposedly Windows 10 requires UEFI for the install. :/ Hopefully I get my new computer built before 10 comes out or something. Gonna be fun waiting for everything to be fixed to run on Windows 10...
    You do not have to have UEFI BIOS to install Windows 10. I've installed it on my desktop PC which only has legacy BIOS. I did the Reservation and its says my PC is ready and I'm good to go. Most PC's that shipped with Windows 7 do not have UEFI BIOS and they still qualify for the free upgrade. You were misinformed.

    When you look at the update which was marked recommended or important is the way it just states it by adding additional capabilities for Windows updates to Windows 7, 8.1 as to never know what it really meant till received the extra icon in taskbar.
    Now found out by starting a post here from OP....

    It doesn't seem to matter how many times you set it to "Hide Icon and notifications" it just comes back. That is so lame and unneeded.

    And it confuses me with one on the left side bottom, but smaller
    Sure you will find a way, not much resource loss just annoying i know, now only 0.3mb. Always end task, temporary fix while using the system.

    I just don't get why they do stuff like that? I reserved my spot so why make me look at the Icon forever and a day? Let me hide it and just unhide when the time comes for me to update. What's so hard about that?

    Sure if you googled it someone made a hack to get rid of it, but not sure would trust it yet.

    I think the icon is cute. I just hope I don't accidently activate it.

    That's the case remove the update or hide it. Have to right click it then select reserve anyway.

    Saw this in another site making reference to KB3035583 which is responsible for this notification. What would happen if you uninstall it, I do not know

    Thanks for link, but would it have any effect when uninstalling this update if you made the reserve from the icon for the Windows 10 upgrade already or not ?
