Autumn is coming, and it's time for county fair fun with candy apples, fried dough and the midway. You remember the game whac-a-mole? As the moles popped up through holes on the table, it was your job to whack them before they disappeared. Now, every time another Windows 10 reminder pops up on my screen, all I want to do is grab a mallet and start whacking! Message to Microsoft: This is my computer. Leave my desktop alone! This is not your marketing tool. What gives you the right to hijack my computer for your commercial messages?

From Control Panel, go to Windows Updates and uninstall KB3035583, which is what nags you to get Windows 10.

Once it is uninstalled, perform a manual "check for updates" and you will see that it is queued to be applied ago, so right-click and hide it.
