  1. Prevent Win10 Anniversairy Update?


    Hello,
    so i woke up 2days ago with my laptop (Alienware 15r2) in bootloop while not having done anything so i assume windows forced an update on me. While i got the loop fixed, my AZERTY keyboard was changed to QWERTY(no way to change it even when changing the keyboard layouts), my start menu would not work, some programs would not boot, etc etc.

    So i decided to roll back to a previous version, i see now that windows has AGAIN download this faulty update and was wondering if there's something i can do to prevent it from installing(it's already downloaded).

    I read somewhere to use Wushowhide.diagcab but it does not show me the update, only driver updates.

    Thanks in advance.

    :)

  2. Theme and windows 10 anniversairy

    OK, so the way we set themes in Windows 10 is by going to the Start Menu, going to Settings, going to Personalization, going to Themes, and then clicking the Themes link. If you do that, you should see your currently active theme and then the other available
    themes. If you go to that location and select the "Windows 10" theme, does that fix that up?

    Prevent Win10 Anniversairy Update?

    Hi, this may help:
    How to temporarily block the Windows 10 Anniversary Update version 1607 upgrade | InfoWorld

    Other methods:
    1. If you are using Pro, defer upgrades in Settings.
    2. If you wish to be notified of updates:
    Force Windows to notify you of updates

    Windows Updates often happen without you knowing anything about it, which can be fine if they don’t require a restart.

    You can change that so you are always notified when an update is pending.

    • Launch Regedit
    • Look for
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows

    • Create a new key called WindowsUpdate


    • Under that, create another key called AU and then create a DWORD called
      AUOptions with a value of 2.
    The following options are available

    • 2 – To notify for download and notify for install
    • 3 – To auto download and notify for install
    • 4 – To auto download and schedule the install
    • 5 – To allow local admin to choose setting
    Exit REGEDIT and restart the computer.
    Now check when Updates are released and see if it works for you.
