Since this weekend my computer has been randomly restarting and trying to install this new update. Each time does what it says and would and has all the normal windows update screens but gets frozen eventually. The freeze happens on a black screen which has a spinning circle comprised of dots. I believe this is an HP screen not a windows screen.

I am uscing HP Envy no h8 1549.

Right now in Windows Update under Update & Security it shows the download for the update is 68% complete. I need to make sure that once the download for the update is complete that it does not get initiated as it freezes my computers, I have tried several times, the longest I left it on spinning screen was over 24 hours.

Luckily when I restart my computer by unplugging it or holding down the power button it reverts to installing the old version of Windows 10 and allows me to use my computer as normal until it restarts.

I need to avoid going through the update at all costs.

Please forgive me in advance, I am not good at this stuff as I used to be since my mind has been occupied with other things and my "Windows skills" are pretty sucky ever since I've been on 10.

I would love some suggestions on how to fix this and it is appreciated.

Please let me know if I need to elaborate on anything.

Not having good luck last couple weeks with electronics...

I don't know how to link properly, so if you just search for, "stop windows 10 from upgrading" you should get all you need

I've been researching all day at work and all the resolutions are screens I have never seen, this Windows ten experience is frustrating, I just want to come home from work and use my computer and it's always something new with this OS.

Not having too much luck with Google but will keep trying.

Fix windows update stuck

I hope this works for you. It essentially stops the update, tells you what to clear out, and then shows you how to manually update it.

Good luck, lots of people have been having this issue.

Be aware that win 10 home edition does not have policies option, you would have to directly rewrite the registry, not a good idea for someone who is not too savvy with windows.

My computer was slower than crap after that last update. It reset all the apps, including camera, so they had the ability to turn things on. I went and shut them all back down and it is much faster again.

That is the worst spyware problem I ever encountered, every thing was accessable by the apps and the apps were accessable by on line programs. Hopefully they remain off.

It seems that every major win 10 upgrade resets user preferences.

They think we are dumb.

Surprisingly, the methods on step two weren't as difficult as they seem currently waiting for the download to complete from the link so I can attempt to manually install it.

Cheers

I haven't had it do that to that scale yet, I had almost everything shut off before. It set almost everything to work again. It took me almost two hours to get to use the computer yesterday morning, it finally got done updating then when I started doing something it needed a restart again.

Downloaded manual update and it is not compatible with my computer which tells me maybe I need step 3. At least the first part of step to seems to have stopped the update as it is no longer visible through windows update center. I will try again tomorrow.

Have a good night all, off to watch the Trump Hillary sitcom in a bit.

Should be good - love myself a circus.

Well I remember that before the anniversary update, the option to set wifi as a metred connection was easily findable, and of course it could be used as a way of not letting windows download the updates automatically.

Now of course they have changed its location, it is in settings- internet and wifi-wifi- manage known networks-then you choose your wifi and click properties and scroll down...

That is just one of the settings that was refreshed, plus all the app permissions as well, but they can't beat us.
