    Everyone knows how this update messes up with explorer crashing it during uninstall.

    2. Nvidia Driver Update 353.62
    It seems like improperly packaged in hurry.

    So does anyone like this idea of forced updates?

    You can use this to disable updates and this to manually check for and block prior to running Win Updates check. And/or after removing a troublesome update to stop it being re-installed.

    This is clearly a subject that's going to come up time and time again, there having been several threads started about it already.

    The forced updates thing isn't going down well with quite a few ppl.

    Please remember though that leaving updates disabled isn't a good idea - obviously some updates are very important.

    That's why I asked. It's a dilemma whether to disable updates and miss important ones or keep updates enabled and face serious bugs.

    Of course it's a disaster, already two buggy drivers forced, and now a security update that crashes the machine

    10 is not even released yet

    I can just hear the same complaints 100 years from now when Windows 95 is about to be released.

    Because people want choice, we've been screaming this at MS since they removed the start menu in 8, they have cotton-wool in their ears when it comes to giving us choice

    And cotton wool in their skulls when it comes to choosing what they think we need

    It is part of the insider prog to feed them information yeah? If they get it wrong, and they do, then they will no doubt fix it.

    So it's close to the proverbial "after the 29th", big deal. I'd prefer they get it sorted to get it sorted and if that means that insiders' systems struggle and get to report these issues while they do that then I'm happy.

    If once the release after the 29th continues to force these updates and fails, their flagship if you like, trash the snot out MS for failing again to get it right.

    Who's to say that the "iso" or "wim/esd" after the 29th (in whatever way and upgrade you all will be looking for) will force these updates? It is part of what we agreed to as insiders and those that aren't have to put up with whatever situation the install places on us inclusive.

    MS, you are close to giving something updated, potentially to those who will gratefully receive or acquire by whatever means to have it (gratefully as well no doubt). Get it sorted for after the 29th. As many have done in the past, a period for you to get it sorted will prevail as the "I told you so" empathises leave well enough alone until you do.

    If that is not the case, then gather the continuing insiders feedback and follow the forums for the sometimes distasteful criticisms that will no doubt come your way regardless.

    I have not tried Win10 Ent, & maybe a stupid question, can't this Enterprise feature not be enabled or hacked into Pro or Home edition ?

    How is that any different than 7 or 8 has been?

    Oh and a little melodrama in the title wouldn't you say?

    Hell, no! Do you smell it too? That's pure ganja-development.

    I totally agree with you all, MS has to stop from forcing driver updates
    Please, this is completely useless and should be up to us to decide if we want to update our drivers.
    Regarding Critical and Security updates, it's not a problem to have to update.
