    No. Didn't change anything. That's why I'm wondering if anything changed on the "push" end. For the past three days it's been continually attempting the update. Now - nothing.

    cheers

    If you don't have anything against doing a fresh install, why not just download the iso and do that?

    :biggrin: Nope - no AV at all. just the standard out-of-the-box 9926. Maybe the update will kick in again. It's just weird that after three days, it's now telling me I'm up-to-date on 9926.

    I "may" attempt that in a few days. For now I like my current config and prefer to wait to see if the normal update process straightens itself out.

    I'm interested to see if anyone else on 9926 receives an "up-to-date" when checking updates.

    cheers

    And - out of nowhere, after just telling me I was up-to-date, windows said it had to re-start to finish installing updates, wherein 10041 once again failed and was rolled back to 9926, which still informs me I'm up-to-date.
    :confused:

    Did you update your previous version, or did you clean install?

    How do you prevent a downgrade to 10041 from 9926? 10041 is total crap!

    I hope you are kidding. On 10041, I am not able to change my account picture, I can't save my work in Photoshop, Premiere and Audition. They all freezes! When I go back to 9926, it asks me to "update" to 10041! Windows 10 is getting more ridiculous by each build. This is a show stopping bug that should have been fixed before slow ringers get it.

    You mean an upgrade, right?
    Ok, I've understood your sarcasm and I think it's easier to prevent yourself from using beta OS. If you don't have the guts or the expertise or the patience, stay with stable OSes, Windows 7 maybe?
    Sorry but it's not a hate post, it's just a post trying to help you to choose a better way to... whatever!

    Guys, sorry, I'm fed up of a lot of things, that's not my intention to bother you, really!

    when you get to 10041 update, let it start, then CANCEL the install. force a reboot. and it should not ask you to update again.... or simply keep saying NO.
    I finally chose install then cancelled it.. rebooted to clean the DL (part) and 10036.

    Since I have also experienced recurring problems with 10041, I don't see your question as unreasonable. Desiring to remain on 9926 until a "better" (for real) release becomes available, seems a fair expectation.

    Since my 10041 upgrade always fails and it restores me to 9926, I didn't need to downgrade. I just wanted to prevent the recurring 10041 upgrade requests.

    I have changed the registry key to supposedly disallow updates until I decide to try a newer version. (Instructions copied from another post)

    1. Press "WIN+R" keys together to launch RUN dialog box and type regedit and press Enter. It'll open Registry Editor.


    2. Now go to following key:


    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\Curr entVersion\WindowsUpdate\Auto Update


    3- Right-click "AUOptions" from the right pane and then select "Modify" from the context menu.
    Change the value to "0" and then click "OK".


    4. Close Registry Editor and restart Windows to take effect. It'll completely turn off Auto Updates in windows 10 Technical Preview.


    If you want to restore the Updates in future, just follow same steps and set "AUOptions" value to "4".

    I am a Windows Insider, I can tolerate bugs here and there, but not major bugs that stop functionality especially in a major application like Adobe. I am signed into slow ring, that says a lot about where Windows 10 development is going. Look at the Windows Apps, it's a disaster UI wise and functionality wise. I am not nearly excited about Windows 10 as I was back when Technical Preview launched last year.

    Technical preview is not consumer preview. Things like this are to be expected.

    To be expected in fast ring, NOT slow ring. Get with the program. I don't mind staying in 9926, but NOT when I am FORCED to "downgrade" to 10041!

    Don't tell me to use Windows 7 or 8/8.1. I use File History as my backup, therefore Windows 7 does not work. Windows 8.1? Forget it, it's missing a lot of crucial features such as tagging and organizing files and media. Both of these OSes are outdated!

    Windows 10 has literally no new features in that regard apart from now reading APE tags and flac support, something that changes pretty much nothing but is nice to have.

    As a fan of Windows 8.1 (hope I do not get chucked off this forum) I wonder why anyone would be using an alternative to FOOBAR for ape and flac files. It is free and has many plugins. Having used FOOBAR for many years I cannot recall a fault that was not my error. I use it for playing music to a proper amplifier and speakers via the audio output of the PC.
