    Stick with windows 10 build 1709?


    Hey guys,

    Just a quick question. I wana stick with win 10 build 1709.
    It runs the best on my pc. Tested 1803 & 1809 and they run alot slower & Slugish.
    But will they still do updates for this build? or is it End Of Life?

    Cheers Danny

    End of Service for for 1709 Home, Pro, and Pro for Workstation is April 9, 2019, you will stop getting updates through Windows Update after this date.

    If you have Education or Enterprise it's April 14, 2020. The standalone cumulative updates for these should be available on the Update Catalog, so in theory you could download and install them on Home/Pro. After April 2020 there will be no further cumulative updates of any sort for 1709.

    I can help you. Just disconnect your PC from the internet and never connect it to the internet.

    That should do it!!!!

    I heard that Microsoft was going to start forcing updates through the AC power grid....

    I didn't know about updates but I did hear they could monitor your keystrokes and see your screen through the grid. I went off grid when I learned they could tell what you're thinking from your footprints.

    Ok thanks,
    So we basicly have to keep upgrading to new builds which kinda sucks.

    There are numerous ways to block updates. Find them here or elsewhere online.

    If 1709 is your thing, stick with it. If it worked in 2017, it'll work in 2019 ... and in 2029, too. :)

    The potential risk comes when there are no more security updates, not even in the update catalog. For 1709 the last CU will be in April 2020, 1703 is Oct. 2019 and 1511 is already past end of service.

    If you really want to block updates and stick with one version, then choose one that's also a LTSC/LTSB edition. Those will continue to have CUs available to download from the update catalog for far longer. The LTSC/LTSB editions and their end of support dates are 1507 (Oct. 2025), 1607 (Oct. 2026) and 1809 (Jan. 2029).

    You can keep 1709 as stated, it will work forever. However, you won't be able to be online. More and more browsers and web pages will tell you that your OS is outdated and do not meet their security criteria. If you unplug from the internet, as with any version of Windows, you can use your computer with the outdated OS forever.

    Stop Windows 10 Updates Properly and Completely Solved - Windows 10 Forums

    - stop updates- carry on using it.

    But your reason for not updating sounds as if it needs investigating.

    For example, how much free space do you have on C: now? Upgrading adds some 20-25Gb with Windows.old being added for 10 days by default. Insufficient free space would slow your PC.
