Once again, your PC should never do anything unless you tell it to.

PEBCAK

Or bad hardware.

Like heck it can't. I've had it happen on occasionally despite WU being set to only notify me.

Don't necessarily have a problem with what MS is doing; I have a problem that it wasn't an option. I'm going to uninstall the KB's because invagent.dll thrashes daily at close to 100% CPU for 300-400 seconds of kernel time.

Anyone else exerience that? David

I experienced HDD thrashing with the updates, but didn't have them on my system long enough to check out the CPU usage.

Bumping this, I've just had reports that the bloatware has become active.

New here. This Windows 10 update thing in the system tray seems to be seriously slowing down my system. I've temporarily uninstalled the GWX.exe in the Start Task Manager, but need a permanent fix.
The instructions by user "Tookeri" for uninstalling are terribly convoluted.
Can someone simplify the uninstall instructions for Windows 7?
Thanks

See this post by Brink for an alternate way to remove it. I used Tookeri's method without any issues but to keep it simple just check the link below.

Open Control Panel and navigate to the address in the address bar below. Click on the link highlighted in the screenshot below then manually scan through to find each update listed in post #1 and delete them. Reboot then hide the updates when they return.
