    GWX.exe?

    I'm not sure if his is the right place but I'm literally desperate at this point.
    I have been battling an unwanted upgrade to Windows 10 from Windows 8.1 for about three days now.
    I've deleted the GWX.exe file in system 32 but I am still left with GWX.exe files in WinSxS that I cannot remove because I don't have permission. I do not want this update at all so can anyone help me get rid of these files so the update will stop being forced on my system?

    Hi, Novemberrain.

    If you are certain you do not want to upgrade your computer to Windows 10, I suggest you use the GWX Control Panel.
