Thank you for sharing that information about Windows updates. I have not watched the video yet, however, I anticipate hearing Ross complain about the recent October 2018 build of Windows 10. I had installed this wretched update a few weeks ago and had my user settings wiped and some data loss, along with Windows doubling my RAM usage at idle (2.5gb-ish to 5gb-ish). I also saw the anti-malware process and system idle process start over-using my CPU, so the system turned into a complete slog. As if it wasn't bad enough already, as long as you were booted into the O/S, the system would start using more RAM as the day progressed... Completely idle: no-tasking whatsoever. I reverted back to build 1803 which worked flawlessly for me before the update.
I am unsure why this occurred on my desktop as several other systems I manage were updated to build 1809 (the October 2018 build) with no problems whatsoever. At any rate, I hate this all-or-nothing mentality Micro$oft perpetuates with its update system. I understand security is important and forcing updates promotes cyber-security resilience, but taking away an easily accessed inhibit function for updating is infuriating. Not everyone with a personal computer is an irresponsible dolt. Removing inhibit options is just them treating every PC owner as children.
Oh yeah by-the-way: there is an inhibit function in the advanced windows updates settings that allows you to disable updates for a certain number of days, and an option to furlough feature updates for as long as 90 days. Yeah... Those settings don't work. I tried to use both of them and was given a confirmation window that my settings were applied. On reboot Windows was downloading away and scheduling an installation restart. Even those running the professional edition are not exempt from oversight by almighty Microsoft.
Spyware, bloatware, and restriction-ware. No personal freedom at all in Windows-- though I guess it never existed to begin with. I wish it was as simple as just switching to Linux, but that is a whole different discussion.
