    Hot to permantly kill Windows 10 update icon

    I have a Acer laptop that can't be upgraded to windows 10 from windows 7 because of the Intel GMA 3600 graphics card. I have uninstalled KB3035583 & few others & hide the updates as i read but that darn icon keeps coming back. Seems hiding update does not work & keeps reappearing & I see the hidden updates I hide even though it comes back. Since I can't upgrade this is there a permanent fix to stop this update popping up on screen? It is very annoying & Intel has no plans to make driver for Windows 10.
