    XP was my idea. But I've warmed up to Windows Vista, 7, 8.1 & 10

  1. Do MSFNers use Windows 10 with updates enabled?

      I use a Group Policy to delay updates for some period of time. I forget what it is. It's somewhere between 7 days and 6 months. I also have it notify me to install updates, but do nothing else, so I manually choose when to install updates.

      Most of the time, I use Windows 7, and I have updates disabled since there's no point. Every now and then, I'll manually patch it with the latest updates. No point in having the update service running just for that.

      Honestly, IMO, frequent security updates are the least of anyone's worries with Windows 10. Easily configurable with a GPO. There are far bigger fish to fry with that terrible OS.

      I do, because I'm scared of missing out on security updates. But it's really irritating. It's only been 5 months since I last re-installed Windows 10, and update failure has already happened 3 times!

      I use a batch script combined with a scheduled task to change the "active hours" every 17 hours when Windows is running, so that it's always active hours, to prevent Windows from auto-restarting due to the update.

      I don't get forced update installations, I get notified of when they're available when I check settings every patch Tuesday and usually wait a week to see how people's experiences have been. Haven't had any major issues with updates in over a year.
