How do I remove GWX.exe!!

 It is so fearlessly sure of its solid snaring of my machine that it mocks me blatantly from my notifications area in my windows 7 while all of my day to day activities seem to take more and more time as the days pass , and long loved programs that have made me proud and brought joy to me and those with whom i share their wonders , have slowly groaned to slug like ,stuttering versions of themselves , as if they are now just functional variations of this aforementioned  ,epic-ally unwelcome invader of my property and pleasure ..GWX.exe , if i find out who sent you to my happy place , to blacken and defile it as you have , i will kindly say hi to them , pretend im giving them a gold star , then rapidly pull it back and wipe a booger on it  ,then as look upon me in bewilderment , i will ninja swoop around them , pour whole milk in their keyboard , and make darn sure they do not- EVER- get an invite to either my or my friends super-fun , future like party-time extravaganzas.   Darn you GWX virus ,darn you to mobilephone/calculator heck!!  IF ANYONE CAN GUIDE ME IN THE REMOVAL OF THIS (most likely terrorist/koa activist implemented) EVIL INFECTION ...I will be eternally grateful.. For I will drink glass shards in battery acid before i will succumb to its bullying and demands.

[Original title: PLEASE HELP!! My PC has been infected by an imovable virus/trojan/worm thingy ,  going by the name --- GWX.exe!!]

A not bad skit for a beginner. But for the life of me I can't see why you want to post your rant here?

It is very easy deleting KB3035583 to remove GWX.exe and it has been around for a while now.

I can't speak for others but as for me I am both mad AND living under a rock. One day soon the asteroid Apophis will be back and I want something over my head that'll give me better protection than plain old sky.

But I think Windows 10 is the Cat's Meow! There ain't nothing this  O/C cannot DO 'cept gig frogs and I expect it's only a matter of time before it can do that.

As for Windows 8...EVERYBODY hated THAT...around Microsoft it was known as Ballmer's Bust. But Windows 8.1 was a step in the right direction which Windows 10 has done achieved!

My boy, this here O/S is one humdinger of an Operating System! 'Course, it takes a while to learn it and get used to its ways but for those as takes the trouble there ain't NOTHING it wont do for you!

I ask pardon for enthusin' all over this here thread thisaway but I couldn't let all them negative comments go by without shovin' in MY two cents worth.

Y'all can buy and use whatever system you have a mind to. Ain't nobody gonna argue with you. But don't try tellin' me that Windows 10 is bad because I darn well know better!

I have uninstalled KB3035583 and hid it in the list of Windows Updates and restarted. However, the GWX icon remains in the system tray and I keep getting other notifications to install Win10 Pro. This laptop cannot upgrade to Win10 because Win10 is not supported on this model by the manufacturer, and unfortunately, I need to hand this laptop to someone who is not Microsoft savvy.

I have upgraded this laptop from Win7 Pro to Win8.1 Pro (so that I can run Bitlocker.)

How do I get rid of ALL of the GWX notifications?

Go to Windows/System 32 and delete the GWX Folder.

Mine is in WOW System 64Xamd or something, but I could not get permissions to do that as only the trusted installer has them.

I did search KB3035583 in the MSI downloads and deleted some .exe and .cab files that mention Get W 10 in the description. I am a novice so I feel really let down that I have to go through this all blind. But my neighbor tells me I am lucky that my W 10 install failed. She says our internet is far to slow for the demands of W 10. Just GWX.exe popping up makes going online very slowas the Windows website takes a full 15 minutes to load!
