My opinion...... Windows 10 is bullshit. I would advise you to think long and hard before getting win 10. Not only can't you disable updates, ( and believe me you can't. I have tried). It will just install them eventually with out you even knowing about it. You can only defer updates for up to 8 months, then they will just install anyway. The only other thing I could try is to run Linux as a firewall on a separate machine and see if I can stop the updates that way. Last update for win 10 screwed up my network connection. After some research I found out it is massive problem (Bug) in one of their updates. And if you want to uninstall the updates you can only uninstall the one ones it allows you too. And that's not to mention everything you do, everywhere you go, every keystroke is information sent directly back to Microsoft. Even info on your web-cam gets sent to them. By default when installing win 10 ALL privacy setting are set to ON or SEND back to Microsoft. You have to manually turn all this off when installing, or even after installing. (If you don't want your privacy violated). But even then, when win 10 updates it has been known to switch these privacy settings to default again, which is on. I use a program called "SpyBot Anti-Beacon" at the moment to ensure that these settings aren't changed by win 10 (which win 10 has been known to do through an update). Here is a must watch VIDEO on things you may not of known about win 10. (This guy apparently worked for Microsoft). No wonder they were giving it away. They couldn't sell it. I will be most likely going back to win 7. I am Not going to be forced into updating windows 10 when I don't wish too, or even need too. I'm not saying it's a conspiracy or that I'm even having a b%#!ch, well, maybe having a little b%#!ch but I think with just cause. Up to you to decide weather it's worth upgrading to win 10 for free and trading off your privacy for bully tactics from Microsoft.
