P.S. I know there's been loads of controversy on this forum with arguments for/against windows 10, so is this an ok topic for a tutorial, I would intend for the thread to just be a tutorial explaining HOW people can stop gwx and get rid of it if it annoys them, NOT a debate of any kind, but I don't know if the fact it relates to windows 10 makes it too controversial a topic for tutorials.
P.S.2 There was also, a while ago, some controversy about whether renaming the gwx files was a safe thing to do. In my experience it was(I did it when gwx snuck onto one of my systems because KB3035583 was bundled into the windows 8 to 8.1 upgrade), would it be ok to include how this is done into such a tutorial, I would ofcourse surround that part of the tutorial with warnings about the need to make a system image first incase there was a problem and warnings of the form "this bit is potentially dangerous: it shouldn't cause problems, it didn't in my experience, but if it were to they would be severe. Make a system image first and if anything here confuses you ask rather than attempting to do it while unsure". Would having such a part in the tutorial be ok, I would say that such renamings are only necessary if all the other steps hadn't been enough. And I could "hide" this part of the tut in a spoiler tag with a big warning above it. Would that be ok?
