    New Unwanted system icon in Notification Bar


    Yesterday a new icon appeared in my notification area. It's a little window with a red exclamation point in it. Hovering reveals: "Your device is missing important updates. Select this icon for more information." Clicking (or right-clicking) offers two options: 1) Check for updates or 2) Open Windows Updates. I don't want either.

    Is there a way to make this disappear?

    I have blocked updates with Stop Updates vers 2.0.34
    Windows version 1809 (17763.194)

    Follow these steps to check if it works:

    Step 1: Open the Windows Settings menu by pressing the Windows Key and “I,” or alternatively search for Settings in the Windows search bar and click the corresponding result.

    Step 2: Click Notifications & Actions in the left-hand menu. This will take you to a screen providing access to all of the settings related to notifications and the Action Center.

    Step 3: Click the System icon, then select Notifications and actions from the left-hand menu.

    Step 4: Look for the Notifications subheading, where you will see a number of toggles for various types of notifications. The following is a list of the settings you can toggle on this screen:

    • Get notifications from apps and other senders
    • Show notifications on the lock screen
    • Show alarms, reminders, and incoming VoIP calls on the lock screen
    • Hide notifications when duplicating my screen
    • Get tips, tricks, and suggestions as you use Windows
    You may just turn them off the notification as you need.
