    Offline automatomation by Win10 during automatic update

    How to prevent Windows 10 putting itself offline while it performs automatic updates?

    17 January 2017 Windows update ended up looping forever after it put itself offline by updating - without permision - the current working non MS net drivers to MS net drivers (which never works in configurations used by us and our clients)!

    Win10 update does not seem to have no
    - timeouts: a computer may loop days/weeks
    - no try & except programming; you can not interupt it nor
    does update handle interrups

    Win10 updates before 17.1.2017 may have finished leaving workstations offline which have been fixed by manually istalling non MS net drivers - this 17.1.2017 shoots itself before that!

    How to get MS react to this?

    If the idea is to provide updates via online connection why not let users to keep working network drivers! ?

    How to MS not to redefine what system software and save also non MS but definetely working network drivers to restore points?
    Once Win10 update discovers that system is offline why does it not try getting it online again - in our cases reinstalling network drivers system used before it replaced them?

    Multiprocessing usage during automatic update - why not to utilize once Win10 puts itself offline to make system online again?

    Where are the Top Guns to get this offline problem solved?

    Thanks in advance and thanks Linux guys letting me stay web connected using multiple devices and channels - and not only to report about Windows 10 update problems!

    I'm likely not answering your questions but you can tell Windows to leave the drivers alone.

    To disable driver updates, Control Panel, System and Security, System, on left Advance System Settings, Hardware Tab, Device Installation settings, click No. This may cause a menu to open. Pick I’ll decide

    This may get reset in a major Update, like 1511 to 1607 but it won't update drivers on the regular updates. Some to watch this spring.

    You may also want to reference this tutorial for other ideas on managing Windows 10 updates.

    Without having the offline options available the monster Windows 10 Update 17th of January 2017 does NOT allow one to
    do enything with mouse i.e. you can NOT click - neither does it accept any keyboard actions i.e. you CAN not go to command mode ny pressing for example WIN button and R !

    Yes, I have defined/forbidden automatic updates NOT to update my working not MS network drivers, however it DOES
    update them making itself offline which is more than stupid and after all dangerous and the situiation it should detect BEFORE
    even trying to start online updates from web!

    NOTHING can be done by user - NO keyboard - NO mouse actions!

    Yes, you CAN make hardware reset but it does NOT help!

    Yes, you can try power off/on but it does NOT help!

    Note, that NO Windows 10 version - neither Win 8.1 - has been handle the situation where a user forgets to switch moden on/
    make itself online and has started Window 8.1 or 10 - it simply does NOT detect if you then make LAN/modem/... work
    and you HAVE to reboot Windows 10 - compare to other OS such as Ubuntu: you can start it offline, do some work and once
    web is available for example via WiFi it connects itself to web automatically - that's the way Windows 10 should do!
