    Creators update spamming me to restart nonstop, too late to block it?


    Is it too late to block the creators update if it's already spamming for me to restart my laptop to apply the update? Of course, like the proud usual Microsoft tradition, it installed itself without my consent whatsoever, despite best efforts at even unplugging the power cord after I go to sleep.

    I've heard nothing but bad news about creators update, stuff like wifi not working, games incompatible, freezes, etc etc, and I'm not a 3D artist, I couldn't care less about any of its features. I haven't restarted my laptop in like a week (I put it to sleep at night) and now I was thinking about restarting it, but once this creators update installs itself I highly doubt I can revert it.

    :)

    Am i too late to stop windows 10 creators edition update ?

    hi andy, I find that most users that have the 1703 version windows 10 home are having issues with this because of compatibility issues not Microsoft I am not a Microsoft employee and don't profess to be an IT specialist either! just here for help and to
    help when I can, if I can. but as I have done most re installs using the above version, and remembering that before you upgrade to the above a message appears to say checking compatibility then that's the reason in my opinion, this is where the problems rise.

    I would just stick with installing 1703 and allow updates to run I have had Lenovo, and asus (current) pc and had no issues with creators. best of luck what you decide.

    Creators update spamming me to restart nonstop, too late to block it?

    Hi, you should be able to revert within 10 days. If you have Win 10 Pro you can defer it for quite a long time, as I have.

    If, as we strongly and repeatedly recommend, you use disk imaging routinely (e.g. Macrium reflect (free), you should always be able to restore a previously working version of Windows or any disk or partition without technical help- even if your disk fails.

    I have just upgraded mine to the CU today, having deliberately delayed that- as I have PRO I can defer upgrades, and I had updates set to Notify only- so no update ever took me by surprise.
    (You can find out how to do that via one of the many tutorials here about how to upgrade to Windows 10, or use Winaero's free tweaker with full explanation which does the same thing).

    For most people the CU works fine- especially with latest updates. But you can run into problems upgrading if you have certain hardware, partition problems, or problems with certain drivers.

    By using disk imaging and the methods above you can protect yourself, and attempt an upgrade being more than 99% certain you will be safe.

    My preferred method is to update my disk image, download the relevant ISO, create a bootable medium, disconnect any unnecessary peripherals, disable or uninstall security software, and one program that modifies the GUI that conflicts with an upgrade. I make sure there's enough free space on my system disk, and at least 500Mb unallocated space on it.

    I disconnect from the internet then upgrade manually.

    Then I check things are running ok, then check for and apply updates.

    It may be that for some older systems it's better to
    a. make sure your BIOS is up to date
    b. check your disk
    c. choose to leave the internet connected during the upgrade and receive updates as part of the upgrade process.
