I have win7 and I have the Pop Up Ad in my System Tray for Win10.

 

I know how to get rid of it I Uninstall     KB3035583.

 

And it comes back the next time or next Day.

 

I know the last step is to have the KB303 Icone Hide.

 

But how does this stop it from installing again wont this just Hide it from showing or what am I not getting?

Hi biferibiferi :)

If you want to get rid of the KB3035583, once you uninstall it, go back in your Windows Update and click on the Check for updates button. Once done, review the list of available updates, find the KB3035583, then right-click on it and select Hide update. This will hide it and it won't be automatically installed anymore. Be aware that this update will reappear (un-hid) if Microsoft re-issues it with modifications, so you would have to keep an eye on it. You can also change your Windows Update settings to Check for updates, but let me decide when to download and install them. I would also uncheck Give me recommended updates the same way you give me important updates.

KB3035583 was reissued yesterday (10/5) and again is in the auto update list if you have recommended updates turned on.  The entire Windows 10 nonsense on Windows 7 finally convinced me to turn off recommended updates so it's on the optional page and now hidden again from that list.

Aura, is there a utility that provides a much better search function, a much better interface than Control Panel/Windows Updates?  Trying to read hundreds of numbers is making me eyes cry like Tammye Faye Bakker at a garage sale.
