    Windows 10 Creators Update

    I've seen the Creators Update and it seems like its a bunch of bloatware. Being on Windows 10 we are now forced updates. So I'm looking to see if anyone has a way to disable the update and not just postpone it like all the google links start out saying disable but upon reading its just postponing it with group policy setting or changing to a metered wifi connection etc.

    I am running the upgraded version of Windows 10 Pro from Windows 7 Ultimate and my current system is taxed enough running 10 so looking to maintain performance by avoiding the update

    Thanks

    Re: Windows 10 Creators Update

    I am gritting my teeth waiting for the other shoe to drop. The other day a "review your security settings before we send you the update" thing popped up. So most likely it is trickling the update out to me in the background as I type.

    I worry far less about the things everyone else seems to be donning tinfoil hats over. I worry about what it might break forever.

    Re: Windows 10 Creators Update

    The group policy setting can disable automatic updates and require them all to be installed manually. However, like RobDog888, I know of no way of disabling individual updates like you could in Windows 7. This is one of the primary reasons why we haven't and are not going to, update from Windows 7 to Windows 10. We use Windows 10 only for testing purposes. Others we have spoken to about this are also taking this same line - a couple have reverted from Windows 10 to Windows 7!

    I read that MS is rolling out the CU to Win 10 Home users first. Guess they figure to a wide test that wont break Pro versions which would be more in the workplace.

    I may revert my install back to Win 7 Ultimate on my current system and on my new system, should be up and running in another day or two, I'll run 10 Pro so no matter what happens I will have a system to fall back on and a good way to test my apps on both.

    Re: Windows 10 Creators Update

    From what I read after 1703 is installed you have even less ability to block updates. I heard there is a 7-day delay you can choose but that's it.

    Supposedly the problem was that a lot of people had blocked 1607 and even 1511 and there is chaos out there now. Many security patches can't be rolled out to anything before 1607 right now.

    So this doesn't surprise me. A big piece of the motivation behind "Windows 10 Forever" was to prevent the obstinate from digging in their heels on Windows 95, then Windows XP, and now Windows 7. Businesses are the worst about this, box jockeys would rather avoid the need to learn anything new since most of those low-skilled hacks can barely cope as it is.

    Windows 7 was declared "unsecurable" and while many took that as a marketing ploy there is probably a some truth in it. Many Win7 issues that impact development were never fixed on Win7 and never will be. In many ways Win7 is a far bigger mess than Vista ever was.

    Re: Windows 10 Creators Update

    I see it similar as a way to make windows more secure and respectable in the market. If you force updates then the system will be more secure. Those systems that dont get the updates for whatever reason are the ones that will be hacked etc and that makes MS and Windows look bad. So I can see where they are coming from but there has to be some timeframe on our part to do our due diligence in preparing for xx change(s). If they want to force feed us updates on a tight timeframe like 7 days then damn I'll go back to DOS 6.22 LOL.

    There has to be some way to foll the windows update into thinking that update xx has already been updated. Then that would buy the time needed to test and prepare for its changes

    Re: Windows 10 Creators Update

    If Microsoft limited forced updates to just security issues that would be fine - even to be encouraged. The issue is that they don't. Non-security updates need to be optional - not mandatory - like they are in Windows 7. Then we'd have another look at upgrading. Security patches need to work and to be able to be installed irrespective of what non-security software has or hasn't been installed.

    Supposedly the problem was that a lot of people had blocked 1607 and even 1511 and there is chaos out there now
    This 'chaos' is an issue entirely of Microsoft's own making. The solution is in their own hands by only mandating security patches and no others

    Re: Windows 10 Creators Update

    Mandating security patches is a no brainer and wish ms did that but forcing a service pack with lots of new features and bloatware we most likely dont want is absurd
