Great Info, Thanks

Someone with a lot more knowledge than I should write a little program or script that purges anything W-10 related from the system.

There was GWX, now let there be GROWX - GET RID OF WINDOWS 10:D

Cliff S, thank you for the list. It was a great help for me. I only had 3 from your list to hide which I finally hid yesterday. Now I no longer have that pesky "Get Windows 10" icon on my computer or the GWX,exe thing. My "Upgrade to Windows 10 Home" has been hidden for quite awhile. So, hopefully, I no longer have to worry about Windows 10:)

You're welcome... even though I went Win10 on both my computers, I believe in choice with out annoyance for everyone But the real thanks goes out to Matrix Leader and Major Geeks for making it world wide public..

Like Juliet68's, my W8.1 system had three of the patches from the list. Uninstalling these patches is a mixed bag result. The system slower to start up, but shuts down much faster and seemingly runs faster.

I've never questioned critical and important patches from Microsoft, that's over now. I may even trust Google more with my data than Microsoft...:confused::confused::confused:

I'm sorry, Cliff, I made a mistake and posted in wrong forum.
At least the question fit the thread, I made a comment once while flipping between tabs(different thread-same forum though), and everyone must of went "HUH???":D
Gave me a laugh. My "HUH" experience is a little different........I'm the one who does the 'HUH" when I read posts that use terms/names of Microsoft stuff that I never heard of or know how to find!!!!!!! And it happens quite frequently :confused::huh::doh:
