there are also 'tricks' to stop updates in normal win10, tho they
vary with each update. last i heard you could make it think you had
a restricted-bandwidth internet (ie cellphone with data cap) and set
the hours of use to zero. then you have to open it up to actually
check for updates. but again that can change with new updates.|
but win10 is more and more for your ordinary dufus, playing games
and 'media'. i would go with win7 if possible. my source for that is
refurbished desktops from Staples that come with win7pro. $200 or so
is hard to beat and they (dell) just keep working.

In regards to Windows 10, if you get the Pro
edition you can set it up to notify you of updates but
you choose when to download them. That way you're in

settings on several Windows 10 Pro machines.
Here are the directions:
1. Press the Windows key and type "group." Edit group

Configure Automatic Updates.
3. Under Configure Automatic Updates
and "2 - Notify for download and notify for install
Apply the changes.
4. Now there's one more crucial step! For these settings to work
go to Settings > Updates & security > Windows Update
and click on "Check for updates
Now when updates become available you will get a
popup notification that you have updates to download.
This has proven to be very helpful because I can choose
when to download the updates. Once you begin the
download, Windows takes over and you have to see it
through. Remember, if you use these settings, make sure
to still download the updates when you're able! You
don't want your machine to be vulnerable to attacks.
This way YOU decide when to go through the Windows
