Windows - Disable WGA installation notification

December 2016



Issue


Windows genuine advantage was downloaded during the last update and at each startup it is prompting me for installation.
  • How to disable these notifications?

Solution


You can remove the WGA installation by deleting all the files containing the word WGA in these folders:

Simply go to the following folders:
C:\WINDOWS\system32\KB905474\  
C:\WINDOWS\Tasks (wga setup)  
C:\WINDOWS\SoftwareDistribution\Download\a49d784415582d2f98c84ceb0a75d898\update (only the file containing the WGA word), 
C:\WINDOWS\Prefetch\ (WGASETUP.EXE-2490191D.pf)
