Why would we want to stop Windows Update?

Sometimes Windows Update can make the operating system difficult, especially for older hardware systems, with little RAM, slow storage, or insufficient processing power.

There are cases where there is sufficient processing power and fast storage, but the task is running, for example a competitive game.

In the case of games, you also need a fast network response time, which can be handled with the Windows update even when your world is dearer to the game.

There are also special cases for the desire to opt out of Windows Update.

In recent years Windows park it became a live experiment, and the guinea pigs are us.

From drivers that no longer work, to accidental deletion of data, are some of the many annoyances that users experience after making a new update.

  1. OK Crtisti thank you very much
    A question if you can, do you know anything about fixing the problems of synchronization sound versus image in stream mode (online-live). is happening on win.10 pro 1909. I made all the possible settings, including the generic windows drivers, but it was not resolved. There were some problems with the realtek audio drivers, but not all have the realtek audio board. A good day
