Windows 10: Upgrade Windows 10 pro

    Upgrade Windows 10 pro


    Hello,Upgrading my windows 10 pro is not working (tried many times and at boot it froze), you know it from my previous posts, old pc, old board, drivers cannot be updated, until I buy a new pc.However, frequently Microsoft it trying to upgrade my system even I disabled the update in services - it opens independetly (sometimes I do not notice because I am bussy doing something else) and starts building a large folder "$Windows.~BT". I again stop the update and disable again in services, try to delete this folder as admin but it refuses to be deleted.I have noticed in the task manager's processes list something new "com.surrogate", I click on it and 'end task', only then I can delete this large folder.Now my questions:1. What is this "com.surrogate", where did it come from, what makes it run, how to get rid of it (if possible).2. How to stop permanently these attempts to upgrade the system, sometimes I even disconnect the line.
    I only keep updating Defender definitions daily.Answers will be appreciatedThanksMotim

    Hi, there's a tutorial on the topic of disabling Windows update: also try

    Also as you have Pro there are group policy options:

    Launch the Group policy editor and set options to delay and notify you of updates.

    - and you can defer (delay) updates too.
    (Note that's as in build 1709 - yours may differ slightly).

Read somewhere that the latest Win 10 Insider Prev will be upgrades to Win 10 full when it is released. A good idea to install this sooner rather than upgrading Win 7 / 8.1 to 10?
