    How to stop 1709 from installing through updates


    I had to revert back to 1703 as 1709 caused problem & poor performance on on of my PC's When windows update runs it attempts to reinstall 1709 & how do you stop & hide it as I not see defer updates option on 1703.


    Thanks

    :)

    Windows 10 1709 update keeps reinstalling igdkmd64.sys and then kernel panics when it loads it

    Bootcamp/Mac. Running Windows 10 1607.

    I have followed every guide I can find online to disable, uninstall, block, etc the Intel on-board graphics driver (I even delete igdkmd64.sys from /Windows/system32/drivers). I have deleted the Windows Update cache, and have stopped the automatic update
    daemon from running.

    I'm running 1709 update from USB, with no ethernet/wifi/other USB devices. Anti-virus and all Windows protections have been disabled.

    But then the 1709 update installs and activates the driver about 30% of the way through the upgrade process, and then kernel panics when it tries to use it.

    How do I stop the 1709 update from installing the driver that causes the problem that stops me from updating to 1709 in the first place?

    How to stop 1709 from installing through updates

    The computer that you are using is HP and provided you can download and install some HP software you can block windows upgrades.
    There is no on/off switch.
    Windows will attempt the upgrade which involves reboots and will fail.
    So software that is open, work in progress, etc. can be lost.
    It is trading one problem for another but it does block the upgrade.
    While Windows attempts the upgrade the computer is unusable.
    So aside from the unknown times in which Windows will attempt an upgrade its workable.
    As long as you get to schedule the upgrade it would have the least interference.
    The question is does you HP computer accept the HP software?
    And knowing the pro and con would you trade one problem for the other?
    If you are interested let us know.

    No. This is top of the line HP software.
    It is the unintended side effect that it blocks Windows upgrades.
    HP was notified in March when I had my first failed upgrade.
    They later came out with a fix to allow Windows upgrades.
    So there are many that complain that they cannot upgrade and want to. It takes a lot of time to troubleshoot the failures. Once the failures are troubleshooted you then know what blocks Windows upgrades. So its trading one problem for another problems.

    Is this the HP URL for your computer?
    HP Software and Driver Downloads for HP Printers, Laptops, Desktops and More | HP® Customer Support
    HP does not support Windows 10 on your computer?
    Or is there a better URL for the computer?

  10. The wushowhide tool can be used to block installation of drivers, monthly updates, office updates... and even OS upgrades. Simply download it from above linked page and try it.

    Currently there are 2 computers, 1 with each 1607 and 1703 that cannot be upgraded to 1709 having downloaded the HP software long ago.
    It may be possible to accomplish a similar alteration in non HP computers.

  13. How to stop 1709 from installing through updates

    Hide/block the same update as shown in the picture below, but for version 1709 (not 1607). I do not have version 1703 installed in virtual machine but I have 1511, that is why older update is offered to me.

  14. Navigate to Settings --> Update & security --> Advanced Options.
    You can defer Windows feature updates up to 365 days this means you can stop fall creators update installation.
