    Just uninstall KB3035583 and then hide the update. The folder will be gone upon reboot. I did post a link in Post #2 with all the information in.

    I checked your post (link). I also think there is not need for reboot, I uninstalled the update and I have no more access to this folder, the folder does not exist. I edited my previous post.

    Also, after I uninstalled the update and checked for new updates, I can see now this update listed in important updates, not optional ones, but I will hide it anyway.

    It talks to someone somewhere on the Internet too.

    I was playing around with my W7 Network Manager (disabled and enabled my NIC) and I had Process Explorer open.
    When I enabled my NIC, Process Explorer showed that GWX.exe started "talking" via my Network.

    Found this same update and GWX folder on my W8.1 Pro installation as well.
