Hope you have good security on the PC. Most of their updates are patches for vulnerabilities.

If you don't like it, then simply return it...
I went thru this 4 years ago, after a lifetime of dealing with Windows BS. It's amazing all the effort Microsoft has put into Windows, to make it act like a Mac, only not as good.

I just decided, opening a new company, that I was not going to deal with all the BS MS "solutions " out there. I bought a MacBook Pro, got my ass't one, and never looked back. Other than one guy in the office, everything is Apple, and no real issues. My accounting software, runs remotely, Quickbooks, it's a little slower than I would like, but when in my CPA's office on his Windows unit, it is not any better.

Apple for the win, in my humble opinion.

Not sure if it's an option for you, but my fastest computer at work is almost 10 years old and runs XP. But it's off-network. Made me think, I have an old install disk for the Windows 7 Beta. Did a clean install on the wife's computer and man it was quick. Installed all the updates and it sucked. So now we have small cheap computers we use for email and web surfing and keep pcs needed for productivity off the internet. As an added advantage, your "surfing" pc can be any OS you want without the need for compatibility with certain software. No internet, no updates. Only risk is with file transfers but so far, that hasn't been an issue.

Why don't you just schedule them for when you are not using the computer? You can also pause and/or restart a Win 10 update.

Because it's more fun to complain. I work on 2x computers often >12 hours a day....updates don't get in my way, they happen at night, or when I want.

Well, 8 and 8.1.

I have one machine that I allowed to update from 7 to 10 and have been regretting it ever since because of the auto-updates. Always seems to happen at an inconvenient time. I usually find out the next day when I see that everything's been reset and all my tabs have been closed.

I have a couple tablets that are on 8 and 8.1. Every time they try and update they don't have enough room to do it, so the update fails. I'm OK with that.

My Win10 machine asks me if I want to start update now or schedule the update for another time. Never been an issue.

Rant definitely not over.
I dont advise it but if you really want to turn off updates completely:

Right click Start
Select Run
Type: Services.msc and press enter
Scroll to Windows update
Right click and select properties
Select the drop down menu for Startup Type
Change it to Disabled
If the service is already running you'll also want to click stop just below the drop down menu to avoid rebooting afterward.
Click Ok to close

Look for an invoice from Jscottcomputers.com

Windows 10 is the worst POS of an OS ever. I run 7 Pro for certain applications, but Mac OSX or Ubuntu are just so much better.

You can turn off @#$# updates all you want. MS could give a sh#$ what you turn off and/or on. They update any way they please and you'll like it or tough $#$#. I'm juuuust about done with em'. They know full well when they ignore customer settings but just don't care enough to bother.

This isn't a setting, it's disabling the root service.
I mean no offense but I do this for a profession.

Also on ALL previous computers I turned off updates with no issues ever. I know what to click and what not to click. The wife...…...Not so much.

I do not doubt you at all. I've "disabled" it numerous times and it "eventually" updates with the update feature going default back to auto. No one else uses my computer and I know how to do it. I'd tell you in a micro-second if I didn't know how and/or made a dumba@@ mistake with it. I finally quit trying to disable the auto update about a year ago.

Follow the steps I listed above and 1000% your updates will not revert back. If you're on Windows 7 the steps are slightly different but I can supply those as well if anyone needs.

This is the equivalent of turning your water off at the meter.

Very nice way to set update however, when I got to the set point it was already on "manual." And a quick check showed all updates flowing along just fine..... "automatically." I haven't touched the update feature in a long time so no manual updating has occurred. I've known it was updated during use. It doesn't bother me so much as it's not work and I save/close anything frequently so nothing is lost. I'm more aggravated with the way I have to fight to keep Microsoft Office going. Seems like every few weeks they make the default word to the newest version and I have to go through the office set up once again. And don't get me started on Edge. I've all but quit using it. I haven't experienced hardly any issues with apple but maybe I would if I used them more.
