 Voorkom GWX.exe voorgoed


Update onderaan

Here is a more complete approach. These commands can be copied into a command prompt which is running as administrator (look for "cmd" in the start menu, right-click, run as administrator) or they can be copied into a file that ends with ".bat", which can then be executed (right-click, run as administrator).

Note that Windows uses CRLF linebreaks, so before you copy the bat file to a Windows system, convert it using dos2unix (run unix2dox file.bat).

taskkill.exe /F /IM "gwx.exe"

takeown /f "%windir%\System32\GWX" /r /d y 

ECHO Y| CACLS "C:\Windows\System32\GWX" /C /G Administrators:F

del "C:\Windows\System32\GWX\*.exe"

ECHO Y| CACLS "C:\Windows\System32\GWX" /C /G Administrators:R

icacls "C:\Windows\System32\GWX" /deny Everyone:(CI)(OI)F

What it does:

  1. It kills the nagware process, if running.
  2. It takes ownership of the GWX directory in order to be able to modify its permissions.
  3. It grants administrators access to that directory in order to be able to modify it.
  4. It deletes all executable files in that directory, including GWX.exe (the nagware program).
  5. It changes the directory permissions for administrators to read-only.
  6. It denies access for everyone to that directory.

After a reboot, it should not reappear (leave a comment if it does).
