@Frozenoem Their forced updates and the problems they are causing, side effects and all, are not acceptable. I finally just had to download a 3rd party software that blocks them from the registry. I tried two of them that were supposed to let you pick the updates (an interface like the Windows 7 updates), etc., but I must have not known how to use it correctly. So I finally just went the blocking route. And I am SO glad I did. I keep antivirus up to date anyway.
You might change your mind on not applying updates within a week or two of their appearance.
As it stands on a weekly basis, I get 10-50 Issues/ hacks that appear on most operating systems - Windows, Linux, Unix, Android, IOS, Mac’s, IOT (Internet of Things) like smart appliances with nothing more than a MAC address, etc.
My old Windows7 upgrade to Windows10 Home is still functioning and receiving updates, regularly. I have delayed a patch once or twice for a week but, never turned off entirely.
And yes, after long days/nights, I'd still like to swing these hunks of glass , plastic and silicon against the nearest wall Come on retirement!
