Post #11, that huge error message you got is because you didn't type the command correctly, you missed out the spaces between "wusa" and "/" and "uninstall" and "/". If you copy the commands excatly from post #5 they should run. When running command prompt comamnds it is crucial to get them excatly right, thos spaces matter, that's why I suggested copy and pasting them from the text in my post. Note that in each command it starts with "wusa" then has a space, then has a slash, then no spaces, then the word "uninstall", then another space, then another slash, then no spaces, then the capital letters "K" and "B", then no spaces, then a colon, then no spaces, then the 7 numbers of the update to be removed.
Please run those commands anyway, just to fully verify that those updates are gone. If the update is gone already you should get an error message saying that the update couldn't be found, then do the same for the other update with the same command but the other number in it, once again you'll get an error message, post what the message says for each update. Alternatively you might not get that error message, you may get one which says that the update can't be removed, in which case things get problematic, or you might get a success message saying that the update is now gone (but indicating that it was still there until you ran the command).
Rgarding post #14, as long as your updates are set so that you have to approve updates before they can download then don't fear the re-issuing of kb3035583, it'll probably be offered but all you have to do is make sure that it's unticked befoe you install other updates.
Also optimus, thanks for the list of all the files which came up when you searched for gwx, very helpful to see that, please also post an equivalent picture showing what files and folders are on C:\, so I can see if you have a bt folder around. If you need to delete an image from this site such that you get more space to upload other images then you can delete your image from post #8.
And please try copying and pasting those commands excatly into command prompt, see what result it gives.
Report back what it says, with another screenshot if you like or you can just type the error message.
You might need to do a little more to get rid of gwx, depending on what result that command prompt command gives, and also depending on what folders are or are not present on C:\ . You should be alright, but if you just post the screenshot of C:\ and the messages you get when running those commands then I'll be able to verify if you are fully fixed, and remember in future have updates on "check automatically but ask me before downloading", do all the security ones, be very careful (going with the side of not installing when you cannot be sure if a non-security update is worth having) with the rest. remember also to look every tuesday evening/wednesday morning in "windows update" in control panel" to see when new updates are on offer so you can install the security ones quickly and have plenty of time to decide about others.
P.S. have you made a system image yet, I strongly suggest you do so, one day you will be glad of it.
P.S.2 I don't have a full list of "updates you might not want for windows 7", I do have such a list for windows 8/8.1. I suggest you start a new thread along the lines of "please can anyone advise on which updates should be avoided, for gwx reasons, by windows 7 users", just to check if there are any more updates that might be worth getting rid of.
