I have win7 and I have an update for a FREE win 10 verson.


And it stays in my System tray by the Clock.


And every now and then it Pops Up a window for me to Update.


I right click on the Win Icone in the System try to see if I can click NO or EXIT.


But it has nothing like this.


The menu Options just say Upgrade    Checkout new win10    Go to win 10 Website.


How do I get rid of this thanks.

I can relate to you on this after I downgraded from Windows 10. First, you need to disable the icon and notifications: Click on the arrow next to the icons>Customize>and set GWX to "hide icons and notifications". Getting rid of it for good requires you do this. Go to this page and follow the instructions on uninstalling the Windows 10 upgrade assistant. :)
