I see 3 new Optional Updates published today.
Looks like they are all related to the Win 10 Upgrade.
I wonder if MS is trying to fix the issue where some PC's don't get the Win 10 icon ???

I just got the same KB's and hid all 3 of them.

Same here; all are now hidden. I wonder when M$ is going to "get" that some people will not want Win 10 rammed down our throats.

I most likely will get Windows 10 at some time. I just don't want it intermingled with my Windows 7 systems.

I have never liked or wanted Upgrades.

I'll probably update 1 or 2 of my systems to the free Win 10 offer.
I never did an OS upgrade, I always did a clean install for a new OS or motherboard.
I might try upgrading a Win 7 to Win 10 just to see how it works.
If things don't work right, do a clean install (assuming that's possible).

The update doesn't work. I still don't have the Windows 10 App icon.

Might be a silly question but have you tried uninstalling then reinstalling KB3035583?

Note: I haphazardly read other thread where you were engaged with another member trying to figure out why you weren't getting the WX icon so I don't remember exactly what you have tried to resolve this minor issue.

Yes, I did that yesterday. Still no icon. Should I do it again? Read the last threads of my post, and my latest post. I ran the Windows Update troubleshooter, and it said I had a corruption with the "Windows Service Registration" and an error with some kind of update.

When you say, "error with some kind of update", can you elaborate on the specific update?

Edit: You can attempt another go at uninstalling and reinstalling of the update in question but I don't think its going to fix the issue.

Anyway, after reading the conversation between you and DavidE, I am as stumped as anyone in regards to this problem. I have 4 laptops and 2 desktops and they all show the GWX icon operating on different Windows versions with only two that have accepted the MS's reservation.

I wouldn't be too concerned at this point as we're still two month away from the release.

One last thing to check...

Open your 'Event Viewer' go to 'Application and Services Logs > Microsoft > Windows > GWX-Ins > Operational.

In the each 'Information' event check to see if there's a message - GWX Tray: Icon already added to tray.

See below.

What is Windows 7 SP1 (KB976932 Published 2/12/2015)?
I thought I am already on SP1 (latest Win7 ISO image from DigitalRiver). So why the new KB that claims itself to be SP1?
