    We most definitely would not put a tutorial like that here, as this forum firmly believes users should always keep pcs up to date to ensure maximum security. Also, old versions eventually stop being supported at all.

    We prefer to tell you how to resolve your issue safely and securely.

    When Tue 31 comes (the max I could delay it) will I get another chance to delay it again using the Schedule a time settings?
    @Kol12

    I believe you will, but never having done it, can't be sure. Today is the 29th, why don't you either try today or tomorrow and see if you can bump it out more before the coach turns into a pumpkin!

    You should be able to reschedule it every day, you don't have to wait to last day. If you click Restart options today, you can change it again and postpone until end of 6th day from today, November 4th. Doing the same tomorrow you can postpone it until November 5th, and so on.

    When shall the windows remove the windows old folder automatically? I thought it wilb be available for 10 days but is still here...
    The answer to your question is 30 days. However as noted elsewhere you can manually delete it before then if you need space or know for sure you won't be going back to your previous install before then.

    My needs are different from yours. I cannot afford to have problems with an untested system. I cannot tolerate the kinds of problems that were rampant in the first CU, nor those that are now appearing with the second.

    Anyway ... your point is pointless, isn't it, given that corporate environments don't get automatic updates. They're strictly scheduled by the IT support teams, only after the update has been tested successfully and been through change management approvals. They won't tolerate the force feeding that I'll have to endure if I don't find a fix.

    My attitude mirrors that of the corporate environment. I'll take the updates later. I'm not in a hurry. And I don't want the updates pushed onto me. So I need a way to gain control, that's all.

    This is not a corporate environment forum. Corporate environments have a lot of extra protections in place to prevent security attacks, stronger firewalls, proper backup systems etc.

    This forum is for the ordinary guy.

    It is only 30 days if you upgrade from 7 or 8. If you do a build upgrade, it is 10 days.

    Judging by other threads on the board I'd appreciate a companion thread/tutorial called How to NOT get the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update.

    I defeated the spring CU update on my new desktop with instructions found here and elsewhere.
    But I'm left wondering whether I'm vulnerable to getting the fall CU?
    Native boot VHD installation or installation on a removable drive for any build prevents feature build updating via Windows update.

    Native boot vhd is good, as you cannot upgrade a vhd natively. Only problem is it will still keep downloading update files if you have it on internal drive.

    If you restrict the size or available free space of the VHD( you could have a custom pagefile larger than necessary, for instance), update will repeatedly fail, and you can hide unwanted updates using Wushowhide.
