Now, this not good, but not entirely unexpected!
"Windows 7 users are reporting that the notorious update KB3035583 has been re-enabled on their computer without prior notice, so Windows 10 files could be again downloaded to prepare the upgrade to the new operating system.
KB3035583 was first released in the summer of 2015 to prepare the transition of computers running Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 to the new Windows 10. The update brought the infamous Get Windows 10 app that checked systems for compatibility issues with the new OS and downloaded all the prerequisites to perform quick deployment with minimum user interaction."

So I'll see if that Windows update comes through or not. 😉
I installed my 18 updates which Windows failed to install Windows10 upon restart like it always does. But I thought after installing these updates that it might provide the KB3035583 again.since I disabled it with the GWX utility. The update of KB3035583 was installed already on April. 3 rd.2016.
The Windows 10 notification did not return since I used the GWX Stopper. Since I already had the Windows update I don't know how that would work since I already had this KB3035583 already installed? The Windows notification did not return in the system tray. Now what?
EDITED: UPDATE: I rebooted my computer and it installed 3 more updates and one of them was KB3035583 for 5/5/16. The GWX still worked by stopping Windows notification to pop up. Success with this utility! Yeah!:D
I think that even if you take it out with GWX it will return unless you use GWX in real time mode, i.e, run its background monitoring fucntionality...at least that is what I saw when I last used it.
