    When the notification will come up it will have an option asking ti reschedule it. Don't stress. Just click on the reschedule button to set it for another date. You can carry on doing this every so often and that way your computer won't install the updates. However if you want to try another method to stop these updates then I can give you the steps to do that?

    I actually don't know what'll happen if it's already started downloading. Maybe @Zargabaath or @undercxver?
    Thanks for the mention.

    There's no real difference, 8 and 10, all the things they changed from 8, can be put back, such as the window 8 start bar. 10 does have a few kinks but i used 8, and 8 did as well.
    honestly update it when you go to sleep, windows are backwards compatible and 10 aint that bad, 8 was pretty bad, but once you get used to it, its hard to change... either way, it might just update on its own out of the blue, so your fighting a losing fight. Get used to 10, it'll take a day or two, and carry on with your life.

    You didn't have to lol I have been rescheduling it since it popped up
    Yeah that's what I'd been doing but it suddenly decided to ignore that, and shut down my computer while I was using it so that it could start downloading

    You guys are deluded, one day Windows 10 will make you update to it and then you'll be begging me to help you with the system, too bad I'll be used to it while you guys wil be crying.
    Nooooo!
    I did update to 10 a couple months ago, didnt like it, so i used my tech skills to revert back to 8 haha!
    I know how to use it, i just dont like i.
    But youll come crying to me to teach you this method of reverting windows

    Ok well with my pc it pops up, and then it says some stuff can't remember exactly but don't freak out. Take your time and click where it says reschedule. You can also go to control panel and click I think Action Center or Windows Updates under System and Security once you open Control panel interface. And then schedule it. You can't disable it I don't think but if you really don't want it just learn to reschedule far away till you figure out how to disable.



    Some ppl say it ****s with their stuff, settings, files...

    7 was way better, 8 had so many problems when it came out and was around. And it looked horrible and felt horrible to use when you first got it. I can understand the liking of 8 though, i loved window vista, whcih was said to be really crap, but it looked and felt way better than XP.. honestly though 8 was okay once you got used to it, like all windows but it wasnt that great and had a ton of problem compared to the great 7 . XP was great, 7 is the best and still is, vista was okay / most people claim was crap, 8 was new and not great , 10 .... is like a better 8, still not as good as 7, also has a few problems 8 has but 7 and ones before never did .

    There's probably something that set your installs to automatic. it's really ****ing tricky honestly. I only meddle with it because it just does stuff on its own lol When it shut it down I shut the power off lol and rebooted
