    New creators update, how to prevent download?


    I've been informed that this update is due in the fall. It provides nothing that interests me. Can I prevent MS from installing this on my computer? Thanks....Ed

    If it was Pro you could defer features updates, but it's not so you can't.

    The Creators Update is out now, to be followed by the Creators Fall Update in the autumn (as we call it in the UK). Personally I'd let it install. There was much in the Creators Update that's of little use to me, but I really appreciate some of the improvement to bits I do use.

    If you really must block the Creators Fall Update, then wait for windows update to offer it then use the wushowhide tool to hide the update.

    Actually, if you're on the Anniversary Update at present you should be getting the Creators Update pushed your way any time now. You may want to hide that too - but as I said, I find it an improvement (I have a Toshiba laptop too).

    Well, Microsoft graciously updated my computer to the creators update today. Curiously, they now name Windows Defender "Windows Defender Antivirus."I was under the impression it was already an anti-virus. Anyhow, that's a moot point since I'm using Norton Security. So far, computer seems normal. Time will tell if there are any glitches.

    Much like a car, if you don't do regular maintenance then it's likely to blow up on you. You can't just keep running the same OS without updates forever. There really isn't a good reason to NOT upgrade, since it's free, and it will keep your system more secure in the long run. There is a lot of fear of updates, but honestly, for the vast majority of people, updates happen without issue.

    I'm curious... if the update isn't until fall, how do you know there's nothing there that interest you?

    BTW, all major updates brings something to the table, even if you can't immediately see of feel them. Personally I think too many are paying way more attention to internet FUD than fact.

    My two cents.

    I'd already read about what the update contained. I do agree with you that updates are important from a security point of view, and I've updated W10 every time one was available, without problems. So far, on 2nd day after update, all appears to be normal.

    I don't know if this is related to the new creators update, but when my mouse cursor froze on the screen I had to perform a hard shut down. Upon restarting, another update immediately started and took several minutes to complete (I think it was a normal update, but will have to check that out).

    Yes, it turned out to be a regular cumulative update, apparently unrelated to the Creator Update. The cursor freezing wasn't related. Did a malware scan and came up clean.

    Seniors and Baby Boomers Regarding Win 10 Twice a Year Updates


    Most seniors don't have a clue how to update a new Windows 10 Version. They will click off any notifications they don't understand. e-mailing, surfing, shopping, and pics of the grandchildren is about all they do. They are going to be buried especially now with the twice a year version update. MS is shoving them to the side of the road... and saying, "If you ain't pc literate plus...get out of the way and shut your pc down old codgers."

    Lot of old codgers with laptops, desktops with no one to help them. They have children afar or someone in the family who is a little knowledgeable, but doesn't have the time to help grandma and grandpa. Just saying...
