Win10 has been downloaded but not activated as i do not intend to use it. How can I remove the download and the icon from my taskbar?

Delete the files and run this to remove the icon (http://blog.ultimateoutsider.com/2015/08/using-gwx-stopper-to-permanently-remove.html)

will that tool stop KB3035583 from coming back ?
When Ive manually removed KB3035583, you need to wait for WinUpdates to ~find~ KB3035583 & flag it as an available update before that update an be
marked 'hide' .
Issue is that KB3035583 doesnt allways come back as available straight away , so KB3035583 cant be hidden till its detected as available .

If you have room on the HD, why not just leave those downloaded Win10 install files there ? That way theres no chance of them downloading again .

Dont know just ran it once on on the other pc with the icon .. It's never nagged me again. Well the KB has never appeared again either. When I've checked for updates

After I upgraded to Win10 I downloaded the ISO and did a clean install.

i think win10 is ok.but Challenge is that KB3035583 doesnt allways come back as available straightaway, so KB3035583 cant possibly be hidden till its noticed as available
