    MS changes that since Fall Upgrade. Some updates will download regardless.

    MS has decided to take a complete control from users even in Pro versions, because it knows the best.
    I am fighting with 10 to keep it under control, but with each upgrade it gets more and more difficult.

    Indeed, it pushes ADs more and more, on desktop, lockscreen, explorer, even in settings now.

    I will try to address some issues.

    To disable ADs (run CMD as admin and copy/paste):
    Code:
    reg add "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\GameBar" /v "ShowStartupPanel" /t REG_DWORD /d "0" /f
    reg add "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced" /v "ShowSyncProviderNotifications" /t REG_DWORD /d "0" /f
    reg add "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\ContentDeliveryManager" /v "RotatingLockScreenEnabled" /t REG_DWORD /d "0" /f
    reg add "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\ContentDeliveryManager" /v "RotatingLockScreenOverlayEnabled" /t REG_DWORD /d "0" /f
    reg add "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\ContentDeliveryManager" /v "SubscribedContent-338388Enabled" /t REG_DWORD /d "0" /f

    reg add "HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\AdvertisingInfo" /v "Enabled" /t REG_DWORD /d "0" /f
    reg add "HKLM\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\AdvertisingInfo" /v "DisabledByGroupPolicy" /t REG_DWORD /d "1" /f
    reg add "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\ContentDeliveryManager" /v "SubscribedContent-338389Enabled" /t REG_DWORD /d "0" /f
    reg add "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\ContentDeliveryManager" /v "SubscribedContent-310093Enabled" /t REG_DWORD /d "0" /f
    To Disable Auto-install subscribed/suggested apps:
    Code:
    reg add "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\ContentDeliveryManager" /v "ContentDeliveryAllowed" /t REG_DWORD /d "0" /f
    reg add "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\ContentDeliveryManager" /v "OemPreInstalledAppsEnabled" /t REG_DWORD /d "0" /f

    reg add "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\ContentDeliveryManager" /v "PreInstalledAppsEverEnabled" /t REG_DWORD /d "0" /f
    reg add "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\ContentDeliveryManager" /v "SilentInstalledAppsEnabled" /t REG_DWORD /d "0" /f
    reg add "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\ContentDeliveryManager" /v "SoftLandingEnabled" /t REG_DWORD /d "0" /f
    reg add "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\ContentDeliveryManager" /v "SubscribedContentEnabled" /t REG_DWORD /d "0" /f
    reg delete "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\ContentDeliveryManager\SuggestedApps" /f
    Disable OneDrive:

    Disabling Windows Updates is particularly challenging. Typical methods, like setting a metered connection or disabling Windows Updates service, fail to work. But if you disable a service, which WU are dependant on, it fails to check for updates. The problem is, that Network List Service is required to display WiFi networks, so without it, you will not be able to connect. You need to enable it to connect, then you can disable it ASAP.

    Run this, once you see a timeout window, connect to wifi or check for updates.
    When you are done, press to continue, to stop the service again.
    It is quirky, but well you can thank MS, not that it cares.
    Code:
    sc config netprofm start= auto
    net start NlaSvc
    timeout /t -1
    sc config netprofm start= disabled
    net stop netprofm /y

    It was always like this. Metered connections always downloaded security updates.

    Only way to stop all updates (bad plan) is to disable the windows update service.

    The main issue for businesses is the cost up updating their proprietary software to run on newer Operating Systems and usually new hardware to run it, has always been this way.

    Hi,
    You've always been positive about win-10 what happened
    I personally don't care for nor have I ever cared for win-10 more than just an annoying little toy now a toy I hardly ever play with

    Your spec's page does not list a laptop.

    I agree with the original poster. Microsoft has crappified a really good product. #WhatHappened?

    Too bad I didn't get this operating system for "free" too. I paid for something that's crappy and always breaks. I never paid for XP and it worked perfectly... until Microsoft decided to ditch updating it.

    In a way, I kinda broke my own rule of: "If it is physically possible to get something for free... then GET IT FOR FREE!"

    I have set a curse on my own rule

    Hi,
    With all the misinformation starting out people were told they couldn't roll back out of the free upgrade after 30 days
    That applied to inside win-10 only

    Most people made system images themselves and upgraded so if they didn't like it or the upgrade failed it was too easy to restore back to 8.1 or 7
    Of course most just kept 2 ssd's or hdd's with each os and have both and use which ever tickles them the most lol

    I have yet to have any major complaints over Windows 10. It isnt perfect, but nothing is. Ive run a handful of different Linux distros in VMs. I like Linux Mint quite a bit, and if it wasnt for the fact that everything that is done where I work needs Windows, I just may switch over to it as my main OS. That, and the fact that Linux tends to make you jump through more hoops to do what you want to do. Every computer we have at work except for the computer that the wife of the owner uses and my laptop are Windows 7. The server still runs Server 2003 R2 64-bit. I keep trying to get them to update that, but they never get to it.

    I have Linux Mint on a Desktop and a Notebook and true, some of the same programs don't interchange easily. However I use LibreOffice on my Windows, MacBook and Linux computers and set them to use the Microsoft Office formats, outside of no comparable program for Outlook it does pretty good. There are some cross-platform programs such as VLC that also work.

    The problem with a consensus of opinion about computers is that we never hear from those who have no problems for their usage. I rarely post about having a particular problem as I either don't have many or/and am able to work through them without losing basic use of the computers. But then I've been building computers amid all their foibles since back in 80386 and 80486 days with MS-DOS 5/later and Win3.1/later and morphing into Win95 and later. The only version I didn't install on a new computer was Vista, worked on some OEM builds that actually weren't too bad but those had help in the OEM controlling all the 'stuff' they needed, a lot like Apple and its Macs.
