    Once again the laptop (which I fully realize is quite "out of date" hardware-wise) is having problems installing the downloaded updates.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.

    Similar question as my previous one, but I've lowered the bar a bit: what's the recommended / civilized way of telling Windows 10 to not update graphics drivers? Group policy?!

    How do I find out why did Task Manager decide to start running on startup all of the sudden?!

    And where is any kind of official help? The Get Help app is useless!!! And so is google, whatever link I click, there's about 70% chance that the settings the article/thread is talking about is no longer where it was at the time of writing. I'm getting really frustrated here!

    EDIT: I've disabled fast startup, we'll see if that helps.

    Were you able to fix your issue @IvanV?

    And just to let all of you know Steve has added Windows 10 to the Profile selection now, so you can now proudly say you are running Windows 10 instead of "Other" as an OS. :)
