GWX Control Panel
GWX Control Panel (previously named GWX Stopper) is a free program that you can use to configure and exit the “Get Windows 10” system tray application which continually pops up on PCs that are still running Windows 7 and Windows 8. It can also prevent unintentional Windows 10 upgrades from occurring via Windows Update. GWX Control Panel really works, is safe and easy to use, and gives you the option to re-enable the icon and upgrade notifications if you're ever ready to move forward with Windows 10.

Assuming that the Get Windows 10 app is running and installed, you can now temporarily remove the icon from your system tray by clicking Close 'Get Windows 10' App. When you do this, the icon will disappear for the time being- but it will re-appear after you restart Windows.

If you would like to permanently remove the icon from the system tray, click Disable 'Get Windows 10' App. This will prevent the icon from appearing without your consent again.

If one or more of the buttons is disabled, please see the Questions and Answers section below for a detailed explanation of the user interface.

If you discover that your Windows Update control panel has changed so that it now says "Upgrade to Windows 10" and automatically selects the optional "Upgrade to Windows 10" update for installation, you can now stop this behavior by clicking Disable Operating System Upgrades in Windows Update in GWX Control Panel.

If the time comes when you feel ready to pursue Windows 10, just run GWX Control Panel again, and then click Enable 'Get Windows 10' App. The icon will appear in your system tray immediately, and you can then click it for information on how to obtain your copy of Windows 10.

Since GWX Control Panel doesn't use an installer, it will initially be located wherever your browser normally downloads files. So if you're not sure where to find the GWX_control_panel.exe file, check your personal Downloads folder first.

Fixes issues that can occur if third-party tools or scripts break permissions on some Windows 10-related registry keys.
Now checks for the "Give me recommended updates the same way I receive important updates" setting of Windows Update, since this can leave you vulnerable to some known Windows 10 update patches.
Added the ability to enable/disable the "recommended updates" setting in the Change Windows Update Settings dialog.
