Re: Tool

You really don't have to download and run a tool from a random website. Not if you know what regedit is.

1. Create a text file in your text editor of choice.

2. Type in the following:

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\Gwx]

"DisableGwx"=dword:00000001

3. Save it as "fuckoffWindows10nagware.reg". Make sure ".reg" is the real extension, it doesn't have a hidden ".txt" or something following - if you're reading this site, I assume you know about filename extensions.

4. Right-click and "Run as administrator". If necessary, confirm that "yes", you do want to make changes to Windows.

5. Problem solved. Have a nice day.
