Regardless of whether you are using Windows 7 or Windows 8, there are ways to disable GWX. You can do this by deleting the GWXTriggers folder in Control Panel or in the Task Scheduler. This will stop GWX from displaying the GWX system tray icon. However, you may be unable to delete this icon if it has been placed there. To remove it completely, you must perform several steps.
Disable GWX in Task Scheduler
To disallow GWX from bothering your computer, go to Windows’s Control Panel. To find the Monitor Mode icon, right-click on it and select “Display GWX Control Panel shortcut.” You can see the details of the alerts and click the button to save this diagnostic information. If you’re on a child or Standard account, you can disable the Monitor mode for that account as well.
If the GWX system tray icon is still showing up, click on it to reveal its information. This information will include a list of files and settings it processes. You can also choose to enable or disable the Microsoft Get Windows 10 icon, and restore it to the notification area. This option is only available if GWX has been detected by the Task Scheduler. However, if you are running Windows 7 and want to disable the Get Windows 10 icon, you need to update the Microsoft Windows 10 app.
Delete GWXTriggers folder
How to Delete GWXTriggers folder? The folder is located under C:WindowsSystem32Tasks. The GWX triggers are tasks set up by Task Scheduler. Once you’ve set them up, you can disable them by deleting them. If you want to restore them to normal, export the entries and import them back into the GWX folder. If you still need to disable them, follow the steps below.
To remove these tasks, you have to open Task Scheduler. Look for the Get Windows 10 icon. Select the folder containing GWX triggers. Click the Delete button. You can then close Task Scheduler. If you need to re-enable notifications, you can open the Task planner. Click the gwx folder and click on “End Task” to remove it. This should stop the GWX triggers from triggering Windows Update notifications.
Disable GWX in Control Panel
When you are trying to disable GWX in Control Panel, there are several steps you can take. First, you must know that the GWX control panel is a third-party tool that blocks pop-ups and updates related to Windows 10. It will also prevent Windows 10 notifications from appearing. To disable GWX, go to Control Panel -> Add-ons -> GWX and check “Disable GWX.”
Next, you can use the GWX Stopper software. This tool will detect the GWX infection on your PC and allow you to disable it. The software is portable and does not require installation on your host PC. Once installed, you can launch it and see if GWX is running on your computer. This is the easiest way to prevent GWX from running on your computer. However, keep in mind that this is only a temporary solution – the program will still appear on your system every time you reboot.

To disable the GWX process, open the Task Manager by pressing Ctrl+Shift+Esc keys together. Next, select the Processes tab. Locate the GWX process. Click on the Details tab. To end the GWX process, click on the “End Process” button. Once selected, click on the Delete key.
Alternatively, you can also click on the GWX Control Panel. This will open a dialog box with details about Windows 10. Click OK to stop the GWX process. Once this has finished, you will see the GWX icon in the system tray. Alternatively, you can simply click the “X” button to close the GWX Control Panel.
