    Once again the laptop (which I fully realize is quite "out of date" hardware-wise) is having problems installing the downloaded updates. At this time I'm trying the "fix problems" under the Windows Control Panel/Fix Problems. So far, it did fix several issues....just not the one re: Updates. Rebooted and running it once again to see if it works this time.

    What seems to be the problem? Do you run out of space on C: during the process? In any other case, it should go through, given enough time. It's perfectly possible that you've run into a bug, though.

    Whatever the problem was, the above procedure corrected it. I don't use this laptop very often. So, when there are updates it seems there's a ton of them at one time. Whether that causes the problem or not is beyond me. But, MS should have some way of delegating priority for updates that pre-date the current use of the system, IMHO. When this problem does happen, it's usually showing at least 4 - 5 updates downloading...and then failing to install.

    What is the recommended way to disable automatic updates on Windows 10 Professional? Group Policy or something else?

    There is no way in W10 itself. The only thing you can set is the choise when it reboots after updates.

    Though, I've used O&O Shutup10 to disable automatic updates. Have yet to see if it works though since I still mainly boot into W7.

    Windows 10 home you can't necessarily disable updates through the gui... but pro you can... as for the best way... that's really hard to say.
