To block the icon from showing/disable notifications:

  1. Navigate to: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\Gwx
  2. Create a new REG_DWORD registry value called: DisableGwx
  3. Give it a value of: 1
Or uninstall the relevant Windows update: KB3035583


Note: The ‘Gwx’ key within the registry did not exist on my home PC. I’ve uninstalled the KB3035583 update instead and will reboot PC to confirm.

This is a collection of techical information, much of it learned the hard way. Consider it a lab book or a /info directory. I doubt much of it will be of use to anyone else.
