Dude

This 'kerfuffle' could not have happened at a worse time. I have problems with my insulin pump and continuous glucose monitor. It would be helpful to be able to have the information from those devices so I can fix my situation. I will try to download the appropriate software to my laptop if possible.

RE: Stopping Win 10
It's Update Tuesday and M$ has activated KB3123862 again.

A snippet from their "About this update" page:
Quote:This update adds capabilities to some computers that lets users easily learn about Windows 10 or start an upgrade to Windows 10.

Didn't show up on my W7 Pro 64 bit machines.
I've not been taking any update that doesn't say: "Security Update... "

RE: Stopping Win 10
I had mentioned earlier I updated our church's sound booth laptop to Win 10. Everything worked fine, or so we thought. Found out Sunday morning in the middle of the service that Win10 had disabled the microphone in line and set the built in mic as default. So, we were recording the service as the laptop heard it and not through the sound board. This wasn't bad, but you then hear all the moving around in the booth and all the sounds associated with running the board. It sounded more like one of those recordings we made in the early days when you made a cassette from the microphone placed in front of the stereo's speaker. Anyways, spent an hour this morning getting things reset and hopefully working. I also disabled the built in mic.

RE: Stopping Win 10
But Wait... the hits from M$ just keep on coming.

"We're making available a new convenience rollup for Windows 7 SP1 ... [it] contains all the security and non-security fixes released since the release of Windows 7 SP1 that are suitable for general distribution, up through April 2016. Install this one update, and then you only need new updates released after April 2016.... This convenience update is completely optional; it doesn't have to be installed and won't even be offered via Windows Update -- you can choose whether or not you want to use it."

The downloaded package -- identified as KB 3125574, at 477MB for 64-bit systems -- doesn't yet have an associated Knowledge Base article, nor are there any installation instructions for the downloaded file.

"Also today we are announcing that non-security updates for Windows 7 SP1 and Windows 8.1 (as well as Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1, Windows Server 2012 and Windows Server 2012 R2) will be available as a monthly rollup (fixes rolled up together into a single update). Each month, we will release a single update containing all of the non-security fixes for that month. We are making this change -- shifting to rollup updates, to improve the reliability and quality of our updates.... These fixes will be available through Windows Update, WSUS, and SCCM as well as the Microsoft Update catalog. We hope this monthly rollup update simplifies your process of keeping Windows 7, and 8.1 up-to-date."

OK so how much you want to bet this "rollup" has all the necessary gwX files to advertise Windows 10? Thinking-about

Yup, they're going to bury the updates I've been avoiding by bundling.

RE: Stopping Win 10
Steve Gibson, of Gibson Research, has developed a free program to stop Windows 10. The program is named Never 10 (kind'a catchy). It's a standalone (it doesn't need to be installed on your PC) program that has command line parameters if you desire. His website name is GRC, if anyone is interested.

My wife put this program on a USB drive and is going around to all the work PC's to disable and remove any Win 10 updates. (I knew you were all wondering what she was doing!)

Resume normal computing. . .
