Windows 10: How to stop installing new build

    How to stop installing new build


    On a Lenovo Yoga 500 the mouse was erratic & would go all over the place on its own without a finger even near the touchpad. I installed the one & only driver offered by Lenova for the model despite being warned that I was attempting to install an older driver than the one in use. That made a slight but nevertheless unacceptable improvement to the mouse behavior. As a result & whilst the laptop was still virtually brand new, I did a full factory install. Great. The mouse behaved perfectly as did everything else. However prior to installing an update for M/S office which I'd earlier installed, I sought as instructed any security updates. Included today was a new build for Windows 10 & that was eventually downloaded & installed (took "forever") but as soon as the job was completed, I found the mouse to be back to its old bad habits & was wandering around & virtually uncontrollable again. I decided to revert back to the earlier build. Once that had been completed, the mouse & everything else worked properly. My question is therefore how can I STOP downloading & installing of this new build which arrived today 12th May 2016?

    I believe you can defer (temporarily postpone) Windows 10 upgrades. Click Start button > Settings > Update & security > Advanced options. On the new page that appears, make sure you check mark "Defer upgrades". See screenshots as well as the TenForums tutorial. My apologies if this isn't what you were looking for.

    Hi marsmimar Thanks for that. I'm not yet fully up to speed with 10 & that's a feature I hadn't noticed. I'll check it out as you suggest but meanwhile hope that Lenova will have an answer for a suitable cure them selves as the problem is likely to affect similar machines.

    I think very few people are fully up to speed with 10. I know I'm learning something new every day. Heck, I'm still
    learning new things about 7!

    Microsoft is supposedly thinking about making major changes to 10 next month and Spring 2017. Computer manufacturer's might be taking a wait and see attitude before making major changes to their machines.

    I've now been able to check that machine out & to my dismay, there was no place to tick for deferring upgrades. Presumably this is because of the particular build (the initial one that came with the (now) 2 month old Yoga laptop) because I can see the place on other Win 10 installations. So it's now a wait & see situation.

    Sorry to hear that. In the meantime I'd make sure your System Protection is turned on so you can make frequent Restore Points. If a newer build is automatically installed and it causes problems, hopefully you could return your computer to a date/time prior to that problematic build.
