    I have just collected the Windows 10 machine which has been the subject of this thread.

    I'm sure that I asked the IT people to do a reinstallation of the OS, but what they did was "removed latest (corrupt) Windows update in order that the machine will boot to the desktop."

    They had "many" machines with the same or similar problems. For that reason I am reluctant to fire mine up again until I check to see if there is any way to prevent the system from automatically downloading updates.

    I've read that it isn't possible. Is that really true, or is there some crafty way of getting round that? I don't want to risk parting with money again if the same thing is going to happen again ..... and again?

    I feel more comfortable, at least for the time being, using this Windows 7 machine in the hope that Windows will get its act together, or is that too much to ask for?

    You can change your internet connection to 'metered' one. That will prevent Windows update from installing the update!

    Select Start > Settings > Network & Internet > Wi-Fi > Manage known networks.
    Select the Wi-Fi network > Properties > turn on Set as metered connection.

    Thank you.

    I don't use Wi-Fi. I have an Ethernet connection between the computer and the router.

    The network has been changed to a Metered connection.

    I still have the low speed problem. Should I run the Performance Toolkit Recorder again ?

    You can run WPR again, using the command line. Here is the steps:


    1. Open a command line as an Administrator (Run As Administrator)
    2. Type the following command in the command line Windows: cd %programfiles(x86)%\Windows Kits\10\Windows Performance Toolkit
    3. Type the following command to start recording the boot trace: wpr -start SampleGeneralProfileForLargeServers.wprp -start GeneralProfile -start CPU -onoffscenario Boot -onoffresultspath c:\wpr -numiterations 1 -filemode
    4. Compress the .ETL file generated under the C:\WPR path (very important)
    5. Upload the boot trace file on Dropbox or on https://www.transfernow.net/en/
