Windows 10: Will an update to 1803 come back to haunt me if I rollback to 1709?

    Will an update to 1803 come back to haunt me if I rollback to 1709?


    HP i5 laptop used by a young teenager mostly for playing games including Steam updated to 1803 Home resulting in multiple problems. I rolled it back to 1709 and all works fine. Will future windows updates try to push 1803 back onto this laptop in the future?

    What were the problems you were having on 1803? I am not having any issues with Steam on 1803.

    Windows Update will attempt to push you back to the latest build of Windows, that is correct.

    You might be able to postpone the Upgrade to 1803 but End of Support [End of Life] for 1709 is less than a year away. I think it would be easier if running the Pro version of Win10.

    I found a cheap Pro upgrade key on Amazon but beware of dodgy dealers.

    You can also use this method to stop the 1803 update using the Home version Hide or Show Windows Updates in Windows 10

    Make sure w10 v1803 is up to date [17134.112] as of now. No issues here on three different PCs. No issues using Steam on my gaming pc either.

    This is a neighbor's daughters laptop. HP 15t-ab200 i5 with 8gb memory, 1tb hard drive with 83 percent of space free.
    She is running multiple gaming and messaging apps as well as Carbonite.

    On 1803 from a power on after a full shutdown I see 100 percent drive usage for 3 to 5 minutes on task manager, after that period of time when you try to start any program including mainstream programs like Word, Chrome, etc. the computer is unresponsive and hangs for one or two minutes before starting the program, can't do anything with the PC until the requested program starts.
