#2. "RE: Microsoft pulls October 2018 (1809) update" In response to Ttech (Reply # 0)
After getting this notice I figured it might be advisable to disable Auto Updates. Just turning the slider OFF on the Advanced link does not do it. So I searched to see what process was needed to disable the updates. According to MS you launch gpedit.msc and follow their instructions. Who's minding the store, gpedit.msc is not included in WIN10 Home!
There is a site that has a DOS app but you have to find the one that is the latest. An original had all kinds of hoops to go through to install and run. Luckily this second version is easier to install but does take a bit of time. You also must run as administrator.
After install you delve down the group edit tree to find what you are looking for. There are selections of options by numbers but I could not determine where this selection was to be input. I ended up just Disabling updates. I'll enable them when MS figures out what they did wrong.
Mine says 10/9 updates for W10 version 1803 downloaded, but reboot needed to install. Now i'm afraid to shut down or restart. I've got updates paused, but does that help? I do have backups. Any advice?
