What updates should be disabled to prevent Windows 10 from installing itself

Why you shouldn't install programs to protect privacy in Windows 10

Why you shouldn't install programs to protect privacy in Windows 10

We review the updates that must be deactivated so that Windows 10 does not install.

It is something that more and more users are suffering. Right off the bat, they restart the computer and find Windows 10, even though they haven’t done anything to install it.

At Omicrono we have already explained why this is happening, and how we can avoid it, by deactivating the recommended updates. However, that leaves us in doubt as to which updates we should allow and which we should block.

The most drastic solution is disable only updates responsible for installing Windows 10. I say it’s drastic because it’s never a good idea to say no to system updates, but Microsoft is taking its users to that extreme.

Updates to disable so Windows 10 won’t install

Below is the complete list of updates that prepare our computer to download Windows 10, and those that you should block, leaving the rest to be installed to guarantee the security of the system.

You can disable these updates directly in Windows Update when they try to install, so the first thing you should do is disable the recommended updates so that the system asks you whenever you want to install an update.
