KB3035583 ??

Q: KB3035583 ??

Anybody know anything about KB3035583 that was pushed today? The KB article just says something very vague about increased update capabilities...
Got it offered on Win 7 Pro (32-bit) system today, but not rushing to install it...

A: KB3035583 ??


Just registered on purpose on this fórum to report that after installing this update my laptop (Samsung i7, 500 GB SSD) started having a huge lag after rebooting to desktop. Usually even after a full reboot I can get to the desktop and start doing things in about 20s, but now almost a full minute passes before any icon even appears! Only the desktop background appears.
Restored to earlier time and everything came back to normal...!!
I'm on Win 8.1 and thought I'de share this because apparently this hasn't happened to no one else in the internet which is kind of strange..!

After checking Window Update today I've noticed 5 optional updates and 1 important (KB3035583) are available. I have the 'Get Windows 10' icon but don't want to update just yet. I've heard the above update has something to do with automatically upgrading to 10. Should I still install these updates even though I'm not planning on automatically upgrading from Windows 7?

Thanks in advance.

A:KB3035583 Query

You can pick when to do the upgrade - you'll just get the files downloaded in the meantime.
If you already have the try icon, then an earlier version of KB3035583 is already installed, and updating that to the latest version will make no significant difference.

Back when that round of updates came out to implement the Windows 10 update scheme, I dutifully removed them and hid them. Now I'm curious to see how it all works, so I went to unhide and update again. All of the updates that I'd hidden were there, except 3035583 - it seems to have vanished!

I went to the MS site, but it seems the only way they make it available is through WU. Does anyone know of a standalone file I can download? Might it still be on my system somewhere? Or is there some way I can cajole WU to find it again?


If you like, you can also directly upgrade to Windows 10 from within your activated Windows 7 or 8.1 to get the free Windows 10 offer, and have it activated.

Just got this update. This update enables additional capabilities for Windows Update notifications when new updates are available to the user. It applies to a computer that is running Windows 8.1 or Windows 7 Service Pack 1 (SP1).

Note: prerequisites: To install this update, you must have April 2014 update rollup for Windows RT 8.1, Windows 8.1, and Windows Server 2012 R2 (2919355) installed in Windows 8.1. Or, install Windows 7 SP1.

Not sure what is going on anymore with Windows Updates....they just keep coming. And, I just keep getting more confused and uncertain which ones are needed. I installed this one with no problems so far. (No restart is required).

This first came out late March as optional and I installed 3/29 and it has showed up again today, probably a patch to the initial update IDK. I installed with no problems.

I'm not an IT Tech and I have gone everywhere I can think of to solve the problems I'm having on my laptop without success so I decided to go to the experts here.  I've researched my problem and I believe it started when the KB3035583 update occurred
in April.  My has not done any Windows Updates since that date.  Also, I believe that update should have installed the Windows 10 icon but it did not.
Here's what is going on.  My Windows update goes in a vicious circle saying that I need to check for updates.  I check for updates and then it says that I need to restart my computer so it can install updates.  3 update are made only if I
select "Shutdown" but they never show up in the "installed updates".  Once I shutdown, my laptop acts as though it is installing 3 updates but when I turn it back on and go to the Windows Updates it tells me to check updates again
and repeats what I just wrote.  If I select "restart" then the 3 installations show as failed and again the circle continues.
Another problem that goes along with this problem is that it won't let me change things.  It says my System Administrator needs to make the changes.  I am the only one who uses the computer and I am set up as an Administrator.  In trying to
fix this particular issue, I spent 2 hours on the phone with a Microsoft tech.  He couldn't figure it out.  Also, when he remotely connected to my laptop he... Read more

Just a heads-up to say that MS seem to be pushing KB3035583 again, giving it a recommended status. When I checked Windows Update today, I found it waiting to be installed again, despite hiding it in the past. The update that adds GWX to your system, which is instrumental with pushing Windows 10. So, if you hid this update in the past, then you'll need to re-hide it.

I've just installed Windows 8 on a laptop, and the Windows 10 icon showed up, as it does. Usually, when that happens and I don't want to upgrade to Windows 10, I simply uninstall KB3035583. And it works, although I need to hide it from updates so that it doesn't bug me.

The problem now is that I've already uninstalled this update and the icon still shows up. Actually, the installer asked me right after it finished if I wanted to upgrade to Windows 10, and that led me to believe that there's something else in the system that triggers the notification.

Any ideas how to get rid of it?

A:Get rid of Win 10 icon after uninstalling KB3035583

Yep just go to the Notifications area and hide the icon and notifications . Then go to Task manager click on Processes and turn of the GWX listed.

A few months ago I ran into complications relating to windows Update trying (and failing) to upgrade to Windows 10. I didn't want to upgrade to 10 at the time and eventually uninstalled and hid update KB3035583 and have had no problems since.

Today, KB3035583 suddenly reappeared in Windows Update listed as "Important" and began downloading itself. I hid it again, but have read that even if you hide it, Windows Update will download a slightly different version of the patch. Is there any way to prevent Windows Update from downloading/installing these patches for those of us who don't want to upgrade to Windows 10?

Thanks in advance.

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.

Those who didn?t want to perform the upgrade to Windows 10 could remove and hide the update or turn to third-party applications that blocked the new operating system completely in order to avoid any accidental install (accidents like this did happen and Microsoft apologized, promising to always offer full control to users and let them decide whether to install Windows 10 or not).

And now, it turns out that users who previously hid this update are seeing it re-enabled in Windows update, according to a discussion on reddit and other online forums.

Not happening on Windows 8.1, though
It appears that KB3035583 not only shows up in Windows Update but is also checked as a ?Recommended Update,? so it installs together with all the other updates that you might receive.

I installed Win7 using a manufacturer disk on top of Vista (not clean install).

After that, I had about 200 important and 80 optional updates to install.

I installed about half of the important and none of the optional.

Now I am installing newer updates and checking which to stay away to prevent Win10. I looked and couldn't find any of the 10 updates in the important update list. I did, however, find some in the optional updates list.

I have been reading a lot how MS installs these win10 updates automatically, but in my case, they are listed as optional. I wonder why, is it because MS changed their policy or because my laptop is pretty old and w10 is not recommended?

Anyways, here is the list of important updates still left to install. Could you more experienced members please take a look and tell me if I should avoid any of these?

Thank you.

In my most severe case, the cryptographic service, DNS client, and workstation service were terminating constantly. In another the file share scan from a copier failed. The other was the SMB file shares stopped. In all 3 cases, removing (and hiding again)

A:Windows 10 reservation update (KB3035583) not showing in my WSUS

One of the files deposited by KB3035583 in the folder "GWX" -- some have interpreted that as "Get Windows 10" -- is "config.xml," which includes a long list of instructions on how the ad-based notification system will work.

The additions were atop the previous (EnableEnterpriseSku)false(/EnableEnterpriseSku) and (EnableDomainJoined)false(/EnableDomainJoined), that blocked the ad campaign from Windows Enterprise, the corporate edition available only through volume licensing deals,
and barred it from Windows devices that connect to a network domain. The latter would rule out the notifications' appearance on devices running the Pro edition, such as Windows 7 Pro, when they're joined to a corporate domain.

Microsoft Updates Infamous “Get Windows 10” Patch KB3035583

Microsoft isn’t announcing updates for this patch, but everyone should be able to see if KB3035583 is included in the rollout when new updates are delivered via Windows Update. At the same time, Microsoft also isn’t offering release notes when updating the patch, and the information included in the KB page is quite limited.

I've seen many of these type of threads covering these two updates, but none of them describe my particular situation.

This may be a long post so please bear with me.

I was doing a fresh install and i decided to keep track of all the steps involved because i'm a nut job like that, lol.

When I looked in my update history, everything looked normal as you can see in the image below.

I then set windows update to check for updates, but let me decide what to download and install, and what came up is shown in the next image.

So I thought to myself, here we go again, repeat updates. But then I checked the optional updates, and things started to get a bit weird.

So since this was a test system, I decided to install them and see what would happen. I installed the two from the important tab, rebooted, and then installed the one from the optional tab, and rebooted. This was the result.

Pretty weird huh? On the installed updates list, KB2952664 and KB3035583 only show up once each.

I haven't been using Windows 7 for very long so maybe I am reading this wrong? I'm still not completely clear on the differences between the update history and the installed files. Sometimes the files in one list are not in the other.

Has anybody else noticed this stuff?

P.S. - yes I did a google search and a forum search before making this thread. lol.
