    Question about disabling automatic updates.


    Does enabling this option in the Group Policy work? Is it normal for this notification in the settings to continue reading that updates will be installed automatically, despite enabling the "Notify before downloading and installing" option?

  2. Questions about Automatic Windows Update

    Your pc installed a feature update because Windows 10 receives two major updates per year which are mandatory and automatic. Windows version 1703 is the spring creators update for Windows 10. 1709 is the fall creators update. There's no opting out if you're
    using Home or Pro, if you continue to ignore it the update will be forced.

    You can't opt out of updates so if it's failing, you can either perform a clean install, contact Answer Desk, or schedule an appointment at a local Microsoft store. Ignoring it isn't an option, if the update fails and you fall more than two versions behind
    the license expires.

  3. Questions about Automatic Windows Update

    I'm not looking to update Windows 10. So, it seems no one can tell me why Windows installed a feature update on a version of Windows that I am not running. I would assume that is why when it ask for a restart to finish the install it doesn't work.
    So I will just continue to ignore it.
