    Windows 10 forced download of Updates

    We now have issues with our mobile users going over there mobile hotspot allowance. No way to stop auto download of windows 10 updates. Does Microsoft understand not everyone is connected non capped service plans.

    How to disable autologin after upgrade to Windows 10

    Before upgrading to Windows 10, I had a user account (non-administrator) set to autologin to Windows7 for my home desktop.

    During the upgrade, I allowed this non-administrative user account to be converted to my Microsoft account and selected a PIN to login locally. Upgrade was successful and login to administrative and user account works fine.

    However, when I reboot Windows 10 tries to login to my former local account which, of course, fails because the password is no longer valid.

    The former user account and new PIN account have the same username, i.e. *** Email address is removed for privacy *** so I see the same account twice on the reboot screen - once for old local password login; once for new PIN login.

    Cannot find anywhere in Windows 10 to disable auto-login for the account. Ran the Windows 7 "netplwiz" utility and my account *** Email address is removed for privacy *** shows up twice but does not allow me to change the auto-login parameter anymore.

    "net user" shows old account; doesn't seem to show login with Microsoft account.

    This is more of a nuisance since after reboot, I can then login with my new PIN enabled account but I would like to get rid of the unnecessary attempt to autologin with my old password.

    Any ideas on how to disable the old autologin from Windows 10?

    I've seen several people report that, that doesn't work anymore? I haven't confirmed it myself though.

    I can because it hasn't messed around with my AMD graphics card(CCC) since.

    Ok, not sure why others say it doesn't work then? Something they are doing or not doing? It may depend on when you set that option too. Anyway if you say it works, that's good enough for me.

    I'll second that, but with my Nvidia graphics driver. I prefer to install the updates myself, so I can uncheck some of the options I don't need.

    I am glad that MS has realised that they aren't big daddy. *Smile
    I like my updates when I want them NOT when MS says I need them
    or, having drivers installed that are not as new as other ones. *Smile

    Looks like a good way to miss app security updates. Nope, not for me. I want the latest, secure updates.
