Re: Oh, the irony!
@JimC - "Which is exactly why perverting the patch process with the pushed Windows 10 upgrades was a mind bogglingly stupid and irresponsible thing for Microsoft to do."
So? Switch the network interfaces to "metered connection", thereby shutting off auto-update. No one can help people who only want to complain and refuse to learn how to run their system. Just stamping their feet and yelling, "but it doesn't run like Windows 7 did!!!" is kind of pointless at this late date.
