i just went in and paused updates for as long as i could, which seems to be 35 days. that is the max i can, i think the ability to delay longer is only for Windows Pro and not Home. i don't see anywhere to prevent a feature update at all. so i guess people with Windows Home can delay these updates for a month before our laptops are bricked lol.
I disagree. An update can introduce new features or improvements to old ones that make it BETTER, but don't necessarily "fix an issue". It worked before, and it will work BETTER after.
For me, CPU utilization in 1909 is just at 5-10% (or 1.6-2GHz) at idle everyday.
Has anyone already updated to windows 10 v2004?I have the Acer Predator PH517-51, and windows don't display it to me, the only way at the moment is using the upgrade tool.Really waiting for WSL 2 List of known issues - https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/release-information/status-windows-10-2004(I think it's not scary for my device).
ChevyCam94 well the reality is that many here got their laptops bricked because MS introduced bios updates via windows updates and they werent flashed properly bricking the devices that they had to send to acer (and probably the same on other manufacturers) to get it fixed and not only bios but issues with broken drivers after the updates so yeah to me drivers/bios updates via windows are useless unless you have a particular issue that would be solved with that exact update and you cant get it from anywhere else i disabled mine since day 1 this was almost 2 years ago running all stock drivers apart from nvidia only had to update once as the stock wouldnt run some latest games im on 416.92 and never had a single issue since all running perfectly.Also win10 1909 its prob the worst windows version after 1803 ( and its not even a real full version update its just to enable some dormant services already present on 1903 like the useless cpu always clocking on max even on idle because its only using 2 cores while the other cores are idling :P) my personal advice to anyone who wants it its stick either to 1809 if you dont need game pass or 1903 required for gamepass and personally i dont trust microsoft for driver/bios updates ever whatever you need do it manually with the manufacturer drivers/bios) i myself still on 1809 since the first day it came out and sticking with it but hey this is just my own view and the lesson to learn here its if anything breaks after any update (via windows updates) if you go to MS to ask for help/complaining about it they will basically just show u the middle finger they just dont care they're too popular now to care xd.PS: im not saying anyone to not update and everyone its free to do it the way they want and feel thats better this thread its just a suggestion/advice of the risks that already happened to many and will still keep happening Also using third party softwares to update the drivers its not any good either most of them will get them from the windows update catalog anyway
