GWX Control Panel (previously named GWX Stopper) is a free app, which allows you to configure and exit the “Get Windows 10” system tray app which continually pops up on PCs that are still running Microsofts’s previous operating systems, Windows 7 and Windows 8.
GWX Control Panel is lightweight, has a tiny footprint and is perfectly safe and easy to use. It gives you the option to re-enable the icon and upgrade notifications if you ever feel the need to move onto Windows 10.
- Removed a misleading alert that was appearing on some computers with "clean" Windows installs that had not yet encountered Windows 10 symptoms. This was a dialog box I had added while I was testing a fix I had implemented in version 184.108.40.206 but ended up not needing. The alert was harmless, but wasn't supposed to appear in the final release, so now it's gone.
