Exactly why corporate sysadmins generally don’t use automatic updates. Always test first before update deployment to prevent surprises.

I at least caught it but I used two Regedit to kill Windows 10 updates…others should use them as well…

Look at my posting at:

And see [B]post #9[/B] and get those two update and your Windows 10 nags will be gone.

The first one has to regedit to turn OFF and ON the Windows Update to Windows10 but I choose to turn it OFF. And keep it OFF permanently so even if M$$ does it again it will be gone. And seems like users notice it as it has some view hits.

I have marked KB3035583 to hide several times and yet it still installs if you don’t go thru the list of updates and uncheck it, hiding this one does no good at all.

I just use my method and it stops nagging you. I know it works I have that 5583 installed and both Regedit install and the nags are gone as well as the Windows update saying to update to Windows 10.

“Oops, we accidentally replace your entire operating system.” There’s s quote I never ever though I would hear. Ever. Ever. I guess they’ll have to follow that up with free downloads of Oops!.. I Did It Again.
