I have a Microsoft virus. A popup that says "schedule your upgrade" keeps coming up with no way to shut it down. End Task from task manager shuts it down but it immediately starts back up. I Uninstalled kb3035583 and the four pane window in the system tray went away but not this stupid popup. It might be tied to Internet Explorer as sometimes it doesn't popup until latter, sometimes sooner. Our accounting software is not compatible with 10 so this is a real problem. Any thought?

I'm amused at the description!  The aggressive campaign to get people to upgrade to W10 is a worrisome as a virus.

 

This free tool is the most common way to stop the nagging:  http://ultimateoutsider.com/downloads/

It is updated as Microsoft changes it's tactics, so you'll have to keep an eye on it.

 

Some Microsoft suggestions (I'm not sure how current they are):
