So if MS is forcing updates on me, are they also going to pay for my mobile roaming charges when using my laptop overseas and it forces some mega-Mb update to download?
This is the most stupid idea since.... oh, i dunno.... since Windows 8, maybe?
Yes, i do know about their tool - but if we read the support article it allows you to uninstall an update, not prevent them being installed. Quote
"If a driver or update you are being offered is causing system crashes or instability and Windows was operating correctly prior to that update, you can follow these instructions to prevent the unwanted driver or update from being installed:"
Notice the "... and Windows was operating prior to that update". It just means you can uninstall it and flag it as not to be installed again. Doesn't mean I can block any future updates cos I'd incur mega-bucks worth of mobile data charges.
