  1. Just upgraded to W10, how do I make sure it never auto updates so I can check the updates...


    Even on W7, I always disable the updates and check the catalogue to pick the ones I want to download and install.

    I noticed so far, that there is no such option in settings for W10. Is there a way to do this through registry?

    What Times WU To Auto Check For Updates?

    I'm in the exact same situation. I'm just going to wait and see. Perhaps my PC (and yours) are bottom of the list for this update for some reason.

    Sure manual check upgrades it but auto doesn't.

    Sorry I can't suggest why...

    Now that W10 is out, are you a W7 / W8 refusenik?

    OK, this is now something that has made me dig my feet in the ground. Today is patch Tuesday.

    It's a good thing I actually look at what updates are in the list. None of the mandatory/important updates are checked. This is strange. Then i go to see what optional ipdates are available.

    Only one is checked: Upgrade to W10 Home. This has now crossed into forcing an OS on someone. If I had not checked, as the average user doesn't, or if it was on auto-update, as M$ "recommends", it would have downloaded and installed.

    That is not acceptable behavior.

    Edit: I hid the update, and upon reboot to get my Office updates, they were not checked, but the optional update to W10 that I hid was checked again. Grrrrr....

    Just upgraded to W10, how do I make sure it never auto updates so I can check the updates...

    Microsoft Auto-Updates Components of Windows Without User Permission

    The nine files that are updated all have to do with the Auto-Updater itself.
    The article lists them all. No big deal.

    I run auto-update anyway, so BRING ON THE NEW UPDATES !!!
    I have yet to experience any problems from MS updates on my XP network.
