Hi Don. My name is***** you for your question and the opportunity to assist. The Windows update responsible for that icon you see is KB3035583. Go to Control Panel and open Windows Update.

Click Installed Updates.

In the search area in the upper right corner enter: KB3035583

Left click on the search result to select it and then click Uninstall.

Once the uninstall is complete restart your machine and the icon will be gone.

In order to keep it from coming back when Windows update runs, on the Windows Update page click change settings and change from automatically install to Download updates but let me choose whether to install them.

Then "check for updates" and when/if it shows up as a pending update, right-click on it and select Hide Update

and Windows won't try to install it in the future.
