    Hello

    I have the same problem in 3 pc.
    I noticed that my GWX icon disappaered when I installed eset ss 8 antivirus.

    I tried everything in oder to make it run again (including eset off) but no luck

    Is' it possible eset to block in some way the GWX icon ?

    hi,

    This cannot be normal every time i run the windows update troubleshooter it keeps on reporting the same issues over and over again.I'm guessing it has something todo with the GWX issue sfc /scannow and DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth both report no errors. so ....... ?

    Code:
