    Issue with using WUSHOWHIDE

    Yesterday, after numerous problems with the PC trying to update to v1709 Fall CU, I used wushowhide.exe to stop the PC from trying to update itself.

    Selected the 1709 on the list as 'Don't update this'. Got up this morning and saw that the PC updated to 1709 anyway.

    Can MS force an update unattended?

    No, but I've found from experience that it's too late to use wushowhide if windows update has found and started the features update to 1709. You can hide it, but the update has already started and can't be stopped that way.

    If your PC is now running OK with 1709, then I'd leave it as it is. If 1709 is causing problems you have 10 days grace in which you can go back to your previous system. If you do, uses wushowhide immediately to stop windows update finding/installing it again.

    Seems to be running OK, so I'll leave it as is.

    Thanks for the response!
