While there is no reliable way to abandon forced Microsoft offerings.
About voluntary-compulsory nature of the install updates Windows users know for a long time. But sometimes Microsoft goes beyond all limits when it comes to the manic demands immediately install the latest patches, even if it threatens degradation complete loss of data, or even intimidation of users, as in the case of the transition from Windows 7 to Windows 10, reports the Chronicle.info with reference for Today.
Given this instability and unpredictability, it becomes clear that many users are trying to avoid updating their computers as long as possible, at least until you have solved all the problems. The may 2019 update for Windows 10 at number 1903 became infamous because of the large number of errors, so many are reluctant to update and adhere to a relatively stable version of Windows 10 1803 from 2018.
Sorry for such a “conservative” users, Microsoft has decided to take matters into their own hands. Starting today, the tech giant will be forced to upgrade computers running Windows 10 version 1803 to the latest version 1903. Microsoft says that its argument is associated primarily with the desire to ensure the security of user systems.
“Installing fresh patches for the devices on Windows 10 is crucial for their safety and for the health of the ecosystem as a whole. Since the life support patch 1803 expire on 12 November 2019, we are starting the forced upgrade process for Windows 10, editions Home and Pro,” said Microsoft technical support.
Although some users are sure that they know their computers and potential security threats better than Microsoft, yet there is no precise way to refuse this update. However, there are utilities for refusal of forced updates like ShutUp10 but that can lead to potential risks and to use them only at your own risk.
The good news is that over the last month, Windows 10 1903 became relatively stable and, this may sound a bit ironic, even includes some useful functions update management, like delaying the installation of patches “later.”
