    I have a bunch more hidden that I don't have on my list, such as the Russian monetary and language updates, Skype, Net Framework, driver updates (if it ain't broke, don't fix it), etc.. I check every new update now.

    Hi
    Run disk cleanup,
    Click start and type in the search box
    disk cleanup
    Click on the suggestion or enter key

    After check the options you want to remove and you'll also see another option to Cleanup system files
    On this list you'll see Windows update cleanup

    It's been a little flaky in the pest but see what the amount of updates kb/mg/gb it shows.

    In the past it has removed some updates that return but then again win-10 updates are already returning so what is the difference :)

    It does take a machine restart for the process to complete.
    Haha
    I was just checking that out when your post came in, wondering where my desktop disk space went
    5.7 GB for Temp Windows install files (files from last install = SSD)
    2.23 GB for Windows Update Clean Up.

    p.s. created too many restore points.

    Also why aren't sevenforums recommending option three in Get Windows 10 Icon - Remove from Taskbar in Windows 7 and 8.1

    Option Three = To Disable 'Get Windows 10' using a REG file

    That is the recommended way.

    Well that may get rid of the get notification deal but doesn't address all of the other updates as you showed in your other post
    That is a lot of disk space :)

    Ah, you are getting to know me too well TrashZone.
    I am not ready for WinX on the desktop yet, prefer to wait until winter months when it's snowy & cold outside to mess with upgrading. I imagine a clean install will be in the works.

    But as you are well aware I'm afraid the constant tweaking of WU & KB2952664 caused WU to be corrupted. Now fixed with Fix It Quick Fix & Fix It WU reinstall (aggressive mode).

    Just getting rid of the notification might be easier.

    To be more clear I've now browsed threads where the KB3035583 update has reappeared. perhaps just modifying the directory is better. WU won't try to install that one again.

    Possibly the update and M$ seems to be persistent :)
    And as you posted has already downloaded win-10

    After doing a clean install of windows & If you like the command line. I find it easier to install programs using https://chocolatey.org/ The reason I like it, you can install more than one program at a time.


    Administrative command prompt
    Code:
    Choco install prog1 prog2 prog3 prog4 -y
    Programs like java, imgburn and flash I wouldn't use choc package manager to install it. They have some unwanted 3rd party program that might install. If you are using a 64 bit system and you choose a 32 bit program choco will default to installing the 64 bit program if available. My experience.

    Never really started to hide them until MS started to push all this telemetry crap, then I started checking my updates a lot more carefully.

    OK, this weird. I checked Windows Updates again to see how many times I had had KB2953664 "offered" and it shows it was only twice. I know darned well I've hidden the blasted thing many more times than that in just the past month!
    I assume that MS just "unhides" it.

    I suspect that MS will "wise up" and release it under a different KB number (or roll it into a Security update) to stop people blocking it.

    It wouldn't surprise me if the plan is to annoy users so much that they will disable Windows Update.
    After their PCs are screwed by malware MS will just say, "you should've installed W10".
