No AddRam I flagged the first webpage ages ago and only just reviewed it now.
I read it a little different at first than Brds and I am still a little cloudy over it now, however I listen to people who know more than I do so that means my PC is mean and clean.

Thanks all, very much appreciated.

Haha, it's okay. These updates lately have been annoying as they keep coming back with different numbers.

But KB3045999 is definitely the one you want. Security updates should never be skipped.

GWX.exe Get Windows 10 I'm fed up of seeing the message popup every day. I uninstalled the updates causing this in post #1 but it still shows in Notification Area, I have it set to Hide icon and notification. If I want Windows 10 which I don't I will buy it.

W10 upgrade updates

Do the following to check if an update is installed:
  1. Tap on the Windows-key, type cmd and hit enter.
  2. Type powershell and hit enter.
  3. Use the command get-hotfix -id KB3035583 to find out whether the update is installed
  4. To speed things up, query for all updates in a single command like this:
    get-hotfix -id KB3035583,KB2952664,KB2976978,KB3021917,KB3044374,KB2990214,KB3022345

Hi there, I tried your steps above but ran into an issue with cmd as it gave me nothing to indicate whether or not any of those update had been installed or not. So I tried with PowerShell and the command you provided gave me what I attached as an image.

I will be executing the remaining commands for removal but I need to know if there is anything else I should know before-hand.

Thank you much and hope to hear from you soon.

It would get an error screen like you did on your first try in red showing updates not installed but according to NoelDP the only update that should be skipped is KB3035583 if you are not upgrading to windows 10.

Code:
PS C:\Users\user name> get-hotfix -id KB3035583,KB2952664,KB2976978,KB3021917,KB3044374,KB2990214,KB3022345
Get-HotFix : This command cannot find hot-fix on the machine 'localhost'. Verify the input and Run your command again.
At line:1 char:11
+ get-hotfix <<<<  -id KB3035583,KB2952664,KB2976978,KB3021917,KB3044374,KB2990214,KB3022345
    + CategoryInfo          : ObjectNotFound: (:) [Get-HotFix], ArgumentException
    + FullyQualifiedErrorId : GetHotFixNoEntriesFound,Microsoft.PowerShell.Commands.GetHotFixCommand

Addram in another thread, I am asking a questioning on KB3050265 if it should be installed because it fixes other issues. Those others updates didn't fix other known problems with windows 7 you could tell they were specific to windows 10 upgrade. I am going to try installing KB350265 soon.

KB3050265 is an update to the windows update agent files and is classed as Optional. An earlier version of this is KB2990214. It's entirely up to you if you want to install. But these look like updates to Windows Update so you can install the 10 upgrade through WU.

I've skipped both but it's up to you.
