I have followed this instruction:
Today the update advert ^ was installed on my laptop (and it won't exit),Have you tried this? How to block Windows 10 Upgrade notifications in earlier versions of Windows
Uninstall KB3035583. The next time Windows Update will promote KB3035583, just hide it.
Wasn't Windows 10 supposed to be free?http://www.techsuppo...g-how-get-rid-it.htm (regarding KB3035583) "All About the Windows 10 Upgrade App Including How to Get Rid of it"
It came as a chock to me, but it seems Real Life can be different from what the teacher said!
I removed KB3035583 all right, but somehow the icon
from Windows 10 Upgrade App
is still showing up in my "notification area" (Win 7):
- but will disappear when my mouse comes close! Weird, isn't it?
It's not "comes and goes", but it stays away until next time Windows has booted.
Do "you" know where I can expect to find (and delete) this icon? this icon that really isn't there? that isn't there until next time I start up Windows?
-----------Modified several times
in "Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Notification Area Icons" I clicked hide
, and at first the icon went away, but after re-boot, it was back (and goes away when the mouse pointer gets close). So, the icon is hidden, but is still visible, without being there. This is getting confusing!
