Windows 7: Refresh GWX Icon in the taskbar

Windows 7 Ultimate
Refresh GWX Icon in the taskbar

Hi All,

My laptop is running Windows 7 SP1 and I have the windows 10 reserved using GWX icon. However, as shown in the attached screenshot, I had a notification saying I have to uninstall Daemon Tools during the upgrade. I have uninstalled it, but its still showing in the GWX. Then I noticed that the Last run time is stuck at 10/06/2015 for quite a while.

So my question is how can I refresh this GWX screen to see if the Daemon Tools notification goes away?

Thanks in advance.

I cannot test this - locate/run the tasks in this area:
Task scheduler library > Microsoft > Windows > Setup > GWXTriggers
Let us know if that refreshes the info.
