    Hi the anniversary update was last November or so... the current one is the Creator's Upgrade.

    If you have Win 10 Pro (you haven't said) you can select 'Defer Feature Updates'. That blocks build upgrades.

    An easy way to control updates is this:
    Click image for larger version.

    a. in Settings, Updates, run Check for updates, let the scan finish.
    b. then use the free tweaker above, and click Notify only

    It doesn't work if you don't do (a).

    Manually - really? By all means see
    Windows 10 Update Archive
    but I wish you luck with that-- you'd need it.

    The only updates that make changes to the way windows looks are the Features Updates: 1511, 1607 and now 1703 (the Creators Update). What version of windows do you have at present? What does Winver say for the version and OS build number?

    If you use this:
    Download Windows 10 ISO File - Windows 10 Installation Upgrade Tutorials

    you will install the Creator's Upgrade.

    If you wish to do so, I suggest you first read the News item on this and the long threads about it and some of the issues all are encountering, and those some are encountering.

    To get your build number:

    Windows key + R, type winver <return>

    If you're still running 1511, I would guess either Windows update is broken or blocked in some manner.

    Microsoft is going to stop issuing security updates for the original release of Windows 10. You will have to upgrade to the newer versions if you want to stay secure.
