I've never had any problems with updates now or in the past? Maybe it's a difference when using pro.
I don't have the Pro version, so the extra options to control Windows update are not available to me.
We'll agree to disagree on if it's shi**ty or not, all I know is that I've spent more time trouble shooting with this OS then any other.
Driver incompatibility issues and that branches out to things not functioning properly, like my Logitech mouse pad 3 finger swipe action has stopped working in Windows Movie and TV App again, this happened after a did a restore point to try and fix a problem with the HDR not functioning correctly.
I've now wasted another hour of my time trying to get the 3 finger swipe action to work, and it's still not working _ the Windows restore botched that function up some how _ re-installing the Logitech driver didn't help _ probably have to nuke and pave to get it to work _ another entire day gone nursing it through that !
I think if I go that route I'll go to 1903, and I always burn a disc, wipe the drive and start fresh and hope to God that things don't get worse.
On a 3 thousand dollar Dell gaming laptop the Synaptics Touch Pad driver is botched, scrolling icons randomly get stuck on the screen, another 1/2 a day trying to fix that and that doesn't work yet and probably never will.
Microsoft would have me spend another 3 grand to replace the laptop to one that's designed for W10, they can go screw themselves, even more so since the one I have is not even 3 years old, it came with W8.1.
This is just the tip of the iceberg, I have an old HP HDX 18, that runs W10, but the fans and processor are constantly kept busy with all crap running in W10.
I re-installed W7 and all is well, the funny thing is that one came with Vista and worked well enough, but W10 keeps things very busy on it.
Sometimes doing a clean install of 10 works for a few weeks, but then it starts draining its resources.
Windows 10 is like a "colicky" poorly designed British Sports car.
Rather then do right in the first place and leave it alone, the engineers are constantly trying to fix a buggered up design when they should start fresh.
All there buggering around just makes it worse.
I think I'll get 1903 to work and turn off Windows update, but I also use the TV app to rent movies, so with out Windows update, that will stop working eventually, there's no winning.
So there you go.
The scree shot shows the scrolling icons that get stuck on the desk top on the Dell gaming machine.
On a god note, the WiFi dropping seems to have magically fixed itself on the Dell laptop.
I would have to remember to copy and paste my posts so I wouldn't loose what I just typed when the radio suddenly turned it self off.
