    Nar, this tutorial is only for the "Upgrade to Windows 10" in Windows Update instead.

    The GWX icon is a separate issue.

    Of course, it doesn't help that recent Windows Updates have been resetting settings back to default.
    OK, thanks. So now they are resetting to defaults. Grrr! I'll just look for that update, uninstall, then hide it. I'll also configure it to download updates and let me choose for now.

    My mom has 7 and doesn't want to upgrade to 10. I followed this tutorial to disable the prompt and that worked for a while but now whenever the computer is rebooted she gets the upgrade icon. I checked the settings and upgrade is still disabled in group policy and some of the gwx triggers are disabled in task scheduler. Some I could never disable due to lack of permissions. Other than the tasks being owned by system I'm not sure why I get that error since she is a full admin. I never tried the built in admin account. Could that make a difference? Did M$ change something in one of the last updates to circumvent our attempts of bypassing this nag?

    What prompt are you talking about? This one?

    No the icon in the notification area.

    That's not what this tutorial does, it has nothing to do with that icon.

    This disables that option you see above, which is the OS upgrade through windows update.

    If you have done that, the icon is harmless besides being an annoyance to some.

    If you mean the white GWX icon, then using OPTION THREE in the tutorial below instead should get rid of it.

    What do I set that registry key to? Your tutorial doesn't make that clear.

    It's pretty clear in the note box under OPTION THREE, but you could also use the .reg files in that option to disable the GWX icon.

    If I apply the one or two option to Windows 7 SP1 or Windows 8.x, I avoid again the automatic download of the upgrade to Windows 10? If not, how do I prevent this?

    Thanks

    Bye
