    Annoying task bar icon to upgrade too windows 10


    I RECENTLY INSTALLED WINDOWS 7 PROFESSIOONAL 64 BIT AND AFTER A COUPLE OF DAYS OF CRITICAL UPDATES FROM MICROSOFT AN ICON APPEARED ON MY TASK BAR OFFERING ME A FREE UIPGRADE TOO WINDOWS 10. TRY AS I MAY I COULD NOT REMOVE THE ICON THEN DISCOVERED THE LINK BELOW THE SOFTWARE ACTUALLY WORKED FOR ME THE ICON AS GONE.....

    1...Download ownload Stand-alone GWX Control Panel:
    2...Install.
    3...When the UI opens the user as the option to disable everything
    in their system that is related to windows 10 even the annoying task bar icon.
    4..I have installed this software on my windows 7 professional 64 bit and it works...
    5..IF YOU DOWNLOAD THIS SOFTWARE, USE AT YOUR OWN RISK PLEASE DO NOT SHOOT THE MESSENGER....

    GOOD LUCK....

    Maybe if GWX isn't present that counts as an automatic "Yes".

    What's Hiding in Here ?


    May 2016 update rollup for Windows 7 SP1 and Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1

    I gotta wonder at what point the stuff we don't want to see will be hiding in one of these ?

    If you are good at deciphering xml and other files. You could download the file and extract file using 7-zip.


    Here is what I am using to block windows 10. https://www.grc.com/never10.htm I know some people here don't like GRC. Grc does have some good tools though. I don't think my computer will be supported for 10 and possibly for newer Linux system do to a Intel graphics driver issue.

    This is my method:

    Set WU to "Check for updates but let me choose whether to download and install them"
    As the updates appear in my WU window, I click each one by one. To the right is the message "More information" RIGHT click that - screen goes to MS website, where the details of the u/g can be inspected. If it is plain that this is a Win 10 interloper, I
    right click the KB and choose "Hide Update."

    Next KB: repeat as above but if I cannot make out whether this update is OK, I scroll down on the MS site and look for "All supported x64-based versions of Windows 7" - move across to "Download Now" Save to downloads and the only part of this KB that is acceptable for my system, can be downloaded later as a 'Standalone'.

    Of the 3 Optional updates in my WU window this morning:

    KB3123862 - Updated capabilities to upgrade Windows 8.1 and Windows 7. I hid it without download.


    KB3139923 - I found the 7/64 version and downloaded as Standalone, for installation later.

    KB3156417 - is the Roll Up. I found the 7/64 version and downloaded as Standalone, for installation later.

    MS has forced me to do this, but in a way I am glad they did. It forced my brain into a corner and made me think of ways to defeat what I see as the imposition of 10 onto my machine.

    I think you lost me somewhere in there.

    I do same look at every update just in case and have GWX from the Ultimate Outsider on my computer hoping never to be invaded.

    But looking I do have some of the updates warned against. Like K2952664 several times and I had unistalled it and then hid it. But it came back obviously but still not upgraded yet.

    I did have a scare last month when booted and suddenly realized it was downloading updates when no authority from myself.Panicked to be honest and switched it off. Booted again and again it started. So started in safe mode and did recovery, scanned and it said would lose lots of programs - like Firefox Thunderbird etc and thought can reinstall and luckily have the lot backed up on ext HD - anyway did and did lose programs and data off them but got back emails etc with Recuva.

    so I skate along and do wish I dint have this nightmare. Just want to use my OS - W& SP1 which I paid for and chose. Not have something forced on me. Like many here and elsewhere. And live in hope.
    Would like a bit of tech info like do this then do that as didnt understand how you did what you did. See cant even explain.
    Simple terms if you have the time and patience would be appreciated by me and I suspect many others.
    Like do this click here than go etc. As if to a simpleton.

    Oh wow! It really seems like Microsoft is trying to force everyone to upgrade to Windows 10, when not everyone wants to upgrade! I've heard that now people's computers are upgrading without their permission! Hopefully all of these updates will go away when Windows 10 won't be free anymore. Also when you say you did a recovery, do you mean from an image backup?! It sounded like it as you lost a few programs!
