Bentley on April 19, 2018, 11:07:23 amI always just use the "Pause Updates" feature before I start long renders (especially if I know they will still be rendering on Tuesday).Thanks! I don't remember seeing that option before, but it is there on my system. Is that new?

Quote from: digitalguru on April 17, 2018, 10:52:36 amI did try that, and I got Windows 7 up and running on my AMD - but then I realised that some features on board (LAN drivers etc) didn't have Windows 7 drivers...I think if you want a new CPU/Motherboard, there's no other option :-(
Quote from: N-drju on April 18, 2018, 02:44:03 amDenis, one "bootleg" tip that I have for you is something that I used to prevent some of my programs from updating, rebooting or connecting to the Internet... Just change the system date to three or four days in the past... May trick your system into thinking it's not yet a time to upgrade / update.It worked for me many times. You won't be able to use internet (webpage security certificates) but you may fool the upgrade system.[/font][/size]

Quote from: Seth on April 18, 2018, 04:32:41 pmOption 1: Stop The Windows Update ServiceAs central as it is to the core of Windows 10, Windows Update is actually just another Windows process so it can be stopped with these simple steps:Open the Run command (Win + R), in it type: services.msc and press enterFrom the Services list which appears find the Windows Update service and open itIn 'Startup Type' (under the 'General' tab) change it to 'Disabled'RestartTo re-enable Windows Update simply repeat these four steps, but change the Startup Type to 'Automatic'Option 2: Group Policy EditorThis is a halfway house: the group policy editor will notify you about new updates without automatically installing them (how previous generations of Windows always worked) - though again security updates will still install automatically.Note: Windows 10 Home users have to sit this one out, it is only for Windows 10 Education, Pro and Enterprise editions.Open the Run command (Win + R), in it type: gpedit.msc and press enterNavigate to: Computer Configuration -> Administrative Templates -> Windows Components -> Windows UpdateOpen this and change the Configure Automatic Updates setting to '2 - Notify for download and notify for install'Open the Settings app (Win + I) and navigate to -> Update and Security -> Windows Updates. Click 'Check for updates' which applies the new configuration settingRestart

Now I returned to my office after dinner and my computer was restarted, and in the corner of the screen there was a message that some problems occurred during the update. I checked the type of launch for the Windows Update service, again it was "Manually", although by your advice I turned on "Disable". Some mystical entity decided that I made the wrong choice. It's about updating 1709, about which I wrote. The computer left connected to the Internet.
