    Somewhere I found information that the W7 behavior that enables the user(admin) to control what updates is downloaded and installed could be applied to W10 Professional. In the group policy editor (gpedit.msc) there are entries that should be able to restore this setting: Computer Configuration|Administrative Templates|Windows Components|Windows Update. First by setting this to "Enable" and then Choosing option 5; "Allow local admin to choose settings." should restore the W7 behavior.

    It did not work.

    Since I like to see the boot process instead of watching some cirkeling dots, I invoked Administrative Tools|System configuration, and from there chosed "Boot" and checked the option "OS Boot information". In W7, you can see the boot process and how many cores/amount of memory that is available. This option is also available in W10, but it has no effect. The cirkeling dots are still there.

    Any hints?
