Note: Automatic Updates are AUTOMATIC
unless you have Win 10 PRO !
The following is an edited version that appeared on a
reflector describing the update policy.
Windows 10 Automatic Updates
[Edited version - my replacements in brackets]
When you install Windows 10, the EULA
(licensing agreement) specifies that Microsoft will automatically download
and install updates, with no option to selectively delay or reject download
or installation of updates. For example, you are in the middle of a[n
important activity]. Microsoft decides this is a good time to download and
install updates. Your computer comes to its knees !
Some updates also require that your computer
be rebooted. The default in Windows 10 is to do this automatically, when
Microsoft thinks it is appropriate. You can change this to "Notify to
schedule restart" in the Windows 10 Update and Security Settings, Advanced
Options. After you change this, it will not automatically reboot your
computer, but it will nag you, in the middle of [what ever you are doing],
to schedule the reboot.
Another issue is the "Windows Update
Delivery Optimization". This allows Microsoft to use your computer and
internet bandwidth to deliver updates to other users, anywhere in the world
at any time. From the Microsoft perspective, this frees up their servers and
uses your computer as their update server. [snip] This is turned on by
default, but can be turned off in Windows 10 Update and Security Settings,
