    Hi,

    Wait a minute i discovered something strange it seems there is a difference in the way you obtain the update for example if you download KB3035583 via this (Windows 8 X64) and install it then it wil install 4 scheduled tasks and there is no GWSTriggers folder after i run windows update it offers me another KB3035583 when you install that the scheduled tasks are reduced to 2 and an empty GWXTriggers folder is created what is this mess ?

    Obviously something is wrong because way to many users are affected with issues with that icon.Why make it so complicated ? just check whether the running windows is genuine and show the god damn icon all the rest is nonsense .
