  1. Defer Updates - KB3194496


    Hello

    Just a quick question. I understand that the latest Windows 10 update - KB3194496 - contains 'improvements and fixes' to quote Microsoft.

    Considering this update doesn't mention security updates/patches (but that could be implicit in 'fixes' I concede), why am I unable to defer it using Windows 10 Pro (with the defer updates option checked in Settings)?

    KB3194496 makes my system unstable, and after a Macrium image restore, it still downloads and installs automatically then prompts for restart.

    Thanks for any help you can provide, and sorry if I am missing something painfully obvious.

    :)

  2. I decided to defer updates will it stop KB3194496 from failing to install again?

    Deferring updates doesn't stop updates that have been deemed "Security updates" which the cumulative updates seem to be. The only way I've found to stop them is to disable Windows Updates service all together.

    Hi,

    We are happy to hear that you've used Windows for a very long time now. What we suggest to address the failed installation of KB3194496, is trying to run the Windows Update Troubleshooter. You can use this
