    A CRITICAL Situation and Need Answer Quickly

    I have a critical situation within my immediate family and cannot, at this time or probably much later, perform all the things I still need to do to prep my notebook for Windows 10 installation. I need the following questions answered relating to Windows 10 installation.

    I received 2 updates the other day; KB3055343 (re stop error codes) and "Update to Windows 10", which I believe has to do with installing "Windows Insider Preview".

    My questions are, 1. will these 2 updates remain in my control panel indefinitely, 2. do I really need to download the Windows Insider Preview, 3. will windows automatically install these at some point in time if I don't install myself?

    I can't have windows install automatically because my computer is not ready yet, with several problems to fix.

    I just can't do anything for a long time. My oldest bother is in "critical condition" in the hospital and he on my mind constantly. A quick response to my questions would be very much appreciated.

    Thank you.

    Thank you, Gary, for your quick reply. As I understand it, I'm okay....Microsoft won't automatically download. Thank you very much for your statement concerning my brother.

    One more question, I have a whole year from 7/29/15 to install Windows 10 (was reserved) on my pc without a fee, correct?
