deplorable post, imho, @awuctl. m$ sets great store by keeping our systems up to date, but i will tell you a lill secret, all those updates are bs!. when m$ started to aggressively promote the `free update` to ten, way back in 2015, i turned updates off like a shot. unfortunately , i was already too late for the `free`update of telemetry, that they had slipped in. [without asking, btw.] and breaking my system? nonsense! to this day updates are blocked on my machine, and i have encountered no problems whatsoever. and i have washed my hands of that idiotic bypass elegibility invention by m$.too if i did not know any better, i would suspect that your post was written by a m$-employee.
