    Rolled back Fall Update after it broke too much, stop auto reinstall?


    After the new fall update installed yesterday, the windows button was completely broken, calculator wouldn't even open, file explorer took a very long time to open, everything opened very slowly, two processes were permanently using 13% of my i7-6700 cpu, and there was poor performance all around.I managed to get into settings eventually and roll back the update, which solved every problem instantly.

    Now Windows graciously decided to automatically download and schedule an installation for that same broken update.Is there any way I can stop the install and prevent it from installing again so soon?

    I have to reset to go to bios try and figure out why my cpu fan no longer stops spinning as well. It used to stop spinning when the cpu was cool enough, which was 90% of the time before the update.

    You can click on advanced options in Windows Update and stop Feature Updates .Are you still on Windows 7?

    I see no such option in advanced options in the windows update page.

    I am on windows 10, I just never got around to editing the profile to say otherwise.

    If you are on Windows 10 Pro you can use Group Policy to do it.

    Sadly, there is no Group Policy on my system. There is also no defer feature update option on my system and never has been. I do not believe windows 10 home has such options.

    That is why you should take the time to fill out your system specs so you do not waste members time., 15063 ,674 has that option you just have to look for it Windows update is basically the same for the first 3 builds of Windows 10. Look for Advanced Options.

    Correct. Home has no gpedit, and no option to defer updates.

    All versions, Home or Pro can hide an update, this includes the Features Updates like the one to 1709.

    W10 Pro 1703

    Just to add, Woody posted an article in Computer World about using the Advanced feature in 1703 to block 1709.
