Re: Windows 10 again (sorry)

Uzumlu, I think it would be very helpful if you could post how to do that. I had to get a wifi router so I could set it to metered to stop updates automatically downloading.

When I was using XP you could see what updates were, so could check if they were safe to install. Is this option available on windows 10 as I haven't found this out yet.

Go to Admin Tools Type this in the box bottom l.h.s. - Services - Scroll to Windows Update To turn off right click on the process tab click on Properties then there is a box where you can select disabled. But remember to reverse this at some point in the future!!

Re: Windows 10 again (sorry)

I do not recommend disabling the Update Service but to do so...

https://www.tenforums.com/tutorials/...dows-10-a.html

On the Start menu, point to Settings, click Control Panel, double-click Administrative Tools, and then double-click Component Services.

Control Panel > Administrative Tools, you can access Services. In the Services window, scroll down to Windows Update and turn off the process



on the left, select - Services (Local) then scroll down to Windows Update and double click, then on Start up Type choose disabled.

Re: Windows 10 again (sorry)

I'm with Ted j, sticking with Windows 7 and turned off updates, just cautious about what I download / open and had no problems. On your problems, I use Firefox with Adblock plus, you can set Firefox to not track you, and Ixquick as my default search engine, it doesn't track your activities either. Wouldn't give Win 10 the time of day, if I could I would have stayed on Win XP. If you want an internet based e-mail try Zoho.com, not very well known, seems more business orientated but free to use and at least you would have kept your e-mails intact after your updates went pear shaped
