Disable GwX Notifications via SRP GPO

1. Under Computer Configuration, go to Policies, Windows Settings, Security Settings, then Software Restriction Policies.

2. If you haven’t activated Software Restriction Policies, do it now. Once done, you’ll see the following in the main area when Software Restriction Policies is clicked.

3. Right-click on Additional Rules and choose New Path Rule…

4. Create the SRP by copying my configuration below and click OK. Make sure the Path is C:WindowsSystem32GWXGWX.exe and the Security Level is Disallowed.

From here on, you can try running a gpupdate /force or restarting a computer that was affected by Microsoft’s GwX popup. The Windows 10 notification icon should be gone on those affected computers.
