Every time I go to windows update Windows 10 stars downloading, how can I stop this. I don't want Windows 10. I've hidden KB3035583, under optional updates I've unchecked the box update to windows pro and hidden it but it still downloads when I go to windows update. How can I stop this?
My internet connection gone slow because of BITS. I searched how to stop it and successfully done it. However, after a while, BITS is automatically starting and when I check the Startup type, from disabled, it's back again to Automatic (Delayed start) and it's hogging up again all my bandwidth. My OS is windows 10. How to get rid of this or stop SVCHOST(netsvcs) from hogging all my bandwidth.
I am running Windows 10 via Boot Camp on the new MacBook Retina. I have always had the slimmest/lightest notebook as I travel extensively for work and the new Apple product is impossible to beat in that regard (and Sony went out of the VAIO business). I hate OSX, never run it, I just boot straight to Windows 10 and things are awesome. Except...
I am usually the key presenter at important board meetings and customer meetings. I have a big/heavy notebook at work which I use 90% of the time, but when I hit the road I'm using my sleek/light Windows 10 MacBook. Issue is, when I arrive at my destination and am shown to the presentation room, I boot up Windows 10, launch the Powerpoint file from Dropbox, and -boom-, within 5 minutes I'm speaking in front of a large group.
I am concerned that at my next presentation, I'll whip out my thin/light notebook and as I start presenting I'll see some message about Windows 10 updating -or- Windows 10 needing a reboot to install updates.
Does Windows 10 know enough not to interrupt a full-screen Powerpoint presentation? Is there a mode to disable automatic updates? Or with its new update protocol I am at risk of an embarrassing update moment at my next series of live presentations?
I have disabled Window Defender, but the Updates of Windows Defender Definition are still downloaded and installed.How do I stop it? I tried to use the Show or Hide updates to hide the Update of Windows Defender Definition, but it did not appear there.
I have Windows 10 Home Edition, like millions of others. Like millions of others, I prefer to hibernate my computer rather than shut it down outright most nights. And like millions of others, I am getting awakened IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT because Windows 10 is trying to notify me about updates! Repeatedly.
When I want information about updates, I'll ask. I've turned off the Update Service on the Services tab of the Task Manager. After some hours or some days, it turns itself back on. A cat-and-mouse game with Microsoft. I have stopped the automatic updates themselves but I can't stop the stop the aggressive notifications. Should I be happy? At least the computer is no longer shutting down without warning IN THE MIDDLE OF A PROJECT THAT I'M WORKING ON to update. But it stills turns on at various hours of the night, cooking with its lid closed, to provide me unbidden notifications of updates.
I need to stop this NOW, otherwise Microsoft can shove Windows 10 where the sun don't shine. I own this computer, not Microsoft. Can it be done? Or do I go back to Linux?
1. Go into "C:WindowsSoftwareDistributionDownload" and delete everything in that folder. 2. Now, run the command prompt as an administrator. Type in "wuauclt.exe /updatenow". 3. Go to your Control Panel > Windows Update and your Windows 10 should start re-downloading from scratch
Windows Update is stuck at 98% download of 2,085.1MB and won't stop downloading as I have task manager on. It's been over 4.2GB download and I'm afraid to stop it.
This is Windows 10 SL upgraded from Windows 8.1.At home I'm using 3G modem attached to wireless. This IS metered connection - notice the 3G part. At work I'm using dedicated connection from ISP so no need to worry.
I have Windows 10 installed on my laptop with MS Office 2013. I want the latest preview build installed first. But it's listed at more than 20th position. How to stop these unwanted Office updates. In previous versions of Windows it was very simple to do that by hiding them. But how do I do that in Windows 10 build 10240 RTM?
I have been reading online that there is a-way to download a tool from MS about stopping unwanted Windows updates in Windows 10. But I can’t find the tool; Where do I download it and is it even available anymore?
That's just it. This update is bugged and gives me an awful display experience. I installed windows several times to track it down, and I finally did. Now I need a way to not install it. And uninstalling it after it gets installed is not a solution. If it starts bugging my display it'll stay bugged after the install too.
I had a job running last night, downloading stuff from the internet. I knew would take approximately 30 hours to run. It ran most of yesterday and I had hopes I would wake up this morning and it would be finished.
Windows 10, in its infinite wisdom, installed updates and restarted my computer during the night. My job was ended and I had to restart it this morning. I can't run anything else that accesses the internet while this is running because it slows this job down too much. So now I have another day or more of not being able to do anything else on the internet.
How can I stop the updating and restarting of my computer? It is my computer, I should have control over that.
i can understand about not encouraging piracy and that's what i said to him but my friend is worried about windows 10 updates. now he said ,"there is no options for delay or stop windows updates in windows 10 home.and after windows updates system will be force to restart immediately."
I got home from work this morning and cracked open this laptop to update it, and at about the same time I went to PC via RC and started the update as well. I let both download and went to take a nap, after waking up I checked laptop and it was still downloading at about 85%, then checked the PC and it had already updated, so went thru setup and looks fine.
I had some late lunch and watched the download going to browse web for a bit, came back and at 94%, closed up laptop had company, after they left reopen laptop and after a bit checked and still at 94%, that was two hours ago and still nothing, I even shut down and restart and doesn't move.
so, my computer has been trying to download the november 11th update of windows 10 and I cant figure out why its staying stuck at 0%. How to force the update or why its staying stuck at 0%? anything I can do?
When using windows update for Windows 10 the update will find updates but will not completely download or install. Version 1511 does not show up to download either. I have been on original version of Win 10 for several months.
Windows 10 keeps installing the ASUS Smart Gesture touchpad driver on my laptop. The driver is garbage and it runs three memory resident processes, which seems rather excessive for a touchpad driver. The default Windows touchpad driver works perfectly well, so I want to use that instead of the ASUS driver. However, if I uninstall the ASUS driver Windows Update quickly reinstalls it.
I disabled automatic driver installation when I installed Windows 10, as you can see here:
Despite that Windows update keeps installing the ASUS Smart Gesture driver.
I recently bought a HP Envy 17t with Windows 10 64 Bit on it. The first thing I did was to check if any updates were available, there were, and I downloaded and installed them. I checked again about 10 after that (about 2 weeks after getting the laptop). Since then however I can't install any upgrades. I start the download/install process, then leave. When I get back a couple of hours later, I see an error message saying that the MS servers could not be reached.
I don't know what's going on here. I haven't been able to download and install any Windows or MS Office upgrades in over 4 weeks.
I have minimal data per month, how do I find out how large the windows updates are? I have had windows 10 for four months and have run out of data allowance in three of those months, now I have another update about to happen and I cannot turn it off and I do need to turn off my laptop.
