  1. I disabled Windows 10 Updater and yet it not only turned back on but forces me when to update


    So for over a month, Updater keeps trying to update, gets an error and undo's the update, taking up time on the computer.

    I looked up how to disable updater and did it, and it turned itself back on. I disable it and tried to disable the program that turns it back on and was told I don't have the authority to do that.

    Microsoft, what gives you the right to control my computer?

    What gives you the right to not let me choose when or what to update?

    Windows 10 is stuck on my computer, won't let me go back to Windows 7.

    I regret trusting you to give me windows 10 and want to know how you will reverse this update ****.

    Give me back windows 7, and remember the customer is right and has rights with a computer that they bought, your software that they bought, hence it's theirs not yours and you should stop forcing your nazi **** on us.

    :)

    Windows 10 forced download

    Turn "BITS" service to off or disabled & windows update to manual. Whenever you want to update windows, security &/or optional patches, just turn on "BITS" & start Windows update service & let OS do the rest. You might have to uncheck anything win10 related manually if it's in the download list.

    Turning BITS off is the easiest way to save your bandwidth, even if you have ample amounts of it.
