Thanks for that. It's good to see Windows 7 starter edition is also included. I never quite liked it on my Acer netbook, so this might be a way of getting rid of it and trying out Win 10 at the same time.

Uninstall KB3035583. The next time Windows Update will promote KB3035583, just hide it.-Curt (June 03, 2015, 06:57 PM)

It came as a chock to me, but it seems Real Life can be different from what the teacher said!  :o

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?
 :tellme:

-----------
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!

dr_andus:
I haven't had to deal with this problem yet, but according to the Ghacks article, there is more than one update that needs to be disabled:

If you are using Windows 7, locate the following updates: 3035583, 2952664, 3021917
If you are using Windows 8, locate the following updates: 3035583, 2976978
