Funny how people complain about W10 updates while on W7 there are like 5 updates a week, versus one per month at most on W10.

I think the problem is how forced they are, but that doesn't seem that accurate? could just be me though I'm pretty young lol

You can't be too young to understand something.

But yeah, Windows 10 forces updates down your throat. And when you're on a shitty slow school network, that takes forever, it's even more ugh. Just imagine businesses that need to do something important and then an update rolls out meaning they can't do it on time :(

“Gah, we should have stuck with Win7!”

“We should have chosen Linux!”

They got rid of those but added spying and forcing updates. Hence why RAM usage on 7 from a clean install to a fully updated install goes up by over 400MB.

Is there any way you can uninstall the spy stuff as of late?

It's not about understanding it, it's about not remembering ever having an issue there

On 7 or 8.1 you literally uninstall the updates that do that.

if you get windows 7 i'm pretty sure there's a native way to disable updates
shibs is a nerd pass it on

sure there is

services.msc, kill the fucker from there (stop it and tell it to never start again)

keep in mind that a few things can reenable it, but usually you will notice its unwelcome presence


there is that security update against the leaked NSA exploits, tho. you can download it and install it standalone, just like pretty much any update. maybe doing so reenables Windows Update as a side-effect, I don't remember.

...to clarify this for anyone else reading this thread, you can set the Windows Update Services' startup type to "Disabled" to prevent it from starting.

I have it installed and can verify that, atleast on Windows 8.1, it does not re-enable Windows update. You have to temporarily re-enable the service to install it, but it doesn't even try to stop you from disabling it again afterwards.
Thankfully.
