Q: “After Windows Anniversary update I got a notification telling me that ‘Intel(R) WiDi was removed from your PC because it doesn’t work on this version of Windows’. I am quite happy with this other than that I cannot get rid of this notification. I ‘clear’ it but every time I turn on my laptop again back it comes. I note that there is an app called ‘Intel(R) WiDi Receiver Updater’ still listed which I think may be running on start up. Can anyone tell me whether it would be safe to delete this app? The notifications are becoming irritating!”
A: Use Bloatware remover to disable it running at start and see if that stops the problem if it does, and you have no other problems caused by disabling the app, then delete it.
