    How could I stop automatic installation of this?

    I am having enormous trouble by this getting installed through Automatic Windows Update.

    In Win 7 I could select a box to stop this being installed.
    Here in Win 10 I could not find the way to stop from this getting installed.

    Would anybody mind helping me to stop this getting installed.

    You could try this tool from Microsoft.
