    Stopping the 'Blue Screen' from 'popping up' for Win 10 'invasion'!


    Hi Folks,

    OK,
    So having
    1. 'Disabled' all the actions in Task Scheduler/Microsoft/Windows/UpdateOrchestrator
    2. And then
    3. 'Disabled' all the actions in Task Scheduler/Microsoft/Windows/Windows Update
    4. Next was to Delete the Programs that Microsoft 'secretly' installed on the C drive in either the Programs or Programs (x68) folder which I found using Settings/Control Panel and the Uninstall facility.
    5. I also checked 'services.msc' to confirm there that the 'Forced on me Update' in Windows Update was 'Disabled' and it was, but you cannot be too darn careful!


    I still find I occasionally get this 'Blue Screen' comes up warning me of Dire Consequences if I don't get the 6GB of Critical Updates needed!!!

    So how do I STOP/Block that from happening please?

    Cheers

    I'd like to see what are those "Secret programs" that MS secretly installed in you Program files ?
    Another question, which exact build are you on ? It's possible that it's a discontinued build for which support is stopped. If it's still OEM installed windows, manufacturers tend to install bunch of programs they deem necessary, not seen in standard windows.

    I have only one advice for you.

    Upgrade Windows to latest version if it want's to do that and let it install all latest updates and from here on let Windows do it's own thing, or your computer soon end up in a state where nothing works anymore.


    If you want something old that blocks all updates, return to Windows 7, but I don't recommend this because of security concerns.

    If I had written down the '2 related Programs' I found via Control Panel that I didn't install and didn't come with the machine then I could tell you their names, however when I 'Uninstalled' one it also took out the other.

    The OEM installed Windows actually came from HP with the machine from new.
    Currently the version is 1607.

    I am sorry but I have to still ask: "Why should I be forced to install something that I didn't ask for when I don't need a lot of the new 'features' that have been included?

    My other point is that this update is so full of holes having read a lot of the 'complaints' that it is quite clear that it was shoved out to the market place in one hell of a state which seems to be typical of Microsoft.

    A number of computer outlets are also advising to wait at least a YEAR before installing this 'package' due to the number of 'holes' in it.

    While for the record I have a machine that is still running XP Pro.
    It has not had any Updates for over 2 YEARS and is running as well as if not better and faster than Win10.

    While Antivirus, Firewall and Malware is provided by OEM companies in whom I have more confidence and trust than Microsoft.

    If you want a release that is at least a year old you could use 1703.

    I don't think anyone is forcing you to update but clearly they are going to "Nag" you.

    MS, actually all vendors, can't provide infinite support on every OS.

    First time something happens a run of the mill user would complain they didn't know. Guess you could say this is a CYA

    I also have machine with XP and it has expired long time ago but that has nothing to do with W10. W10 is billed as a "Service" and it's updated every 6 month. It's in EULA from MS. Think of it as Service pack as it used to be called. My XP would be useless without XP3 and so would be my W7 without SP1 on this same machine.
    Your 1607 is also out of date and many security features were introduced since. You should really update it.
    All those advice you are talking about are just clap trap, every OS should be updated regularly. Security doesn't end up with antivirus and stuff like that but is deeply ingrained in the OS.

    @Traveller11

    Let me ask you a few things:

    What is the main reason you do not want to upgrade?
    What Windows version is currently nagging to make an upgrade?
