    "First of all the topic is the conexant crisis in particular and how to solve it" - I was responding to what you wrote in your last post.
    "people have to (pay) to upgrade to 10 pro version to disable automatic driver updates" - incorrect. Automatic driver updates can also be stopped in Home as discussed in several threads in this forum.

    I have updated original post with work arounds that are out there

    P.S
    @Try3most solutions provided all over the internet for disabling driver updates for windows 10 home edition are known to be non functional and just migrated from earlier forums without testing , even the wording and images provided are that of windows 8.1 and not of windows 10 , the registry tweaks are pro level and actually buy you sometime before windows 10 home edition surprisingly force installs the drivers still in the matter of few days . I have started a thread about this fact too about a year ago .

    Just to avoid misunderstandings, to upgrade from Home to Pro there is a charge which I consider a legalized theft, my opinion of course.
    And regarding the possibility to block (or kill) updates on Home, I consider that just an opinion.
