If you're referring to removing the Win 10 upgrade icon from the task try, maybe because your system is not compatible or other reasons, you may do the following to remove the icon and removed specified updates to remove the notice.

1. click on the "Start Button"

2. Open accessories, right click on "command prompt" select run as administrator.

3. At the command prompt type "powershell" without the quotes

4. Once power shell is up and running (which you'll know the command line will change to PS C:\Windows\system32> type the following at the prompt. You may copy and paste the line into your command window


get-hotfix -id kb3035583, kb2952664, kb2976978, kb3021917, kb3044374, kb2990214

If Patches are found type or copy and paste the following, where the /kb is the patch found on your PC.


wusa /uninstall /kb2990214

enter.

(this will remove that particular patch)

Do it for each patch found until all have been uninstalled.

IMPORTANT - If the computer ask to reboot during the process, click on the restart later and continue removing the remaining found patches.

Once all patches have been removed from your system go ahead and restart the computer.

Once your computer has finished restarting - you'll now notice the Win 10 Upgrade icon is now gone, BUT, we're not finished yet!

5. Now run Windows Update - You'll notice some of those patches will show up and want to install again. Now to take care of that, RIGHT clcik on the patches that were found wanting to install again and select HIDE UPDATE!

Congrats! You're finished,and if everything went right, no more pesky Upgrade icon in the system tray! Only do this if you're not upgrading to Windows 10, My HP is not compatible with Win 10 due to video driver issues.

Simply make these changes and the windows updates should start working

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\WindowsUpdate\UX] "IsConvergedUpdateStackEnabled"=dword:00000000

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\WindowsUpdate\UX\Settings] "UxOption"=dword:00000000

I would like to add that you may receive an error under the code "0x80240437" which will also be fixed using the same technique above.

The installation then stops and no matter what it will not continue and will fail each time you try to update to Windows 10. This issue appears to very common after a bit of research. To resolve this issue I did the following:
1.Browse to C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution\Download
2.Delete the full contents of this folder
3.Reboot
4.Go to an admin command prompt
5.Run wuauclt.exe /updatenow

Windows 10 update will then restart and run successfully.

Install Windows 10 using the media creation tool choosing the first option to automate the Upgrade which overcomes almost all issues with Get Windows 10 in the System Tray or create bootable Installation DVD to install/upgrade it.

Or run sfc /scannow which is the System File Checker tool to repair missing or corrupted system files.
