    Have uninstalled KB3035583 How to do get rid of Windows 10


    I am running Windows 8.1 Pro (32bit). I want to get rid of Windows 10 notifications. I have selected 'Hide icon and notifications' in customize and I have uninstalled update KB3035583. However, I am still getting a popup on the screen for Windows 10. I find this very annoying and want to get rid of it.

    Any suggestions? Thanks.

    Hmm, I just used customize notification area , and set the windows 10 to hide Icon and Notification and I don't see it anymore? Its now at the bottom of the list so I can see it if I want to but it's not showing in the notification area?

    Thanks. Dunno if it was the right thing to do but, after uninstalling KB3035583 and still seeing the popup, I deleted the GWX folder in Task Scheduler and that eliminated the problem.

    It reappears when you boot the computer. It does for me.

    If System Restore is turned ON in your PC, you could use that, to go back to before you got that update from MS.
    Then just don't allow that update to install on your PC again.

    Same for me, Brink's option one same idea and have not tried his others, i am wondering why it is so bothersome to have it for some, it's not a resource hog, unless your not reserving Windows 10 at all want it gone.

    It never goes away. It is pretty much Nagware at this point.
