A Complete List Of All Updates You Should Uninstall To Block Windows 10

Windows 10 has had an impressive adoption rate. The OS had a lot of promise when it was still in the preview stage and even though it started out infested with bugs, it has since improved a lot and Microsoft really wants you to check it out. It’s been aggressively pushing the new operating system through various updates and users who are weary of its attempts to get them to upgrade repeatedly have to block updates that try to download Windows 10 to their systems. Some updates don’t install or download files to install Windows 10 and instead install components to make the upgrade smoother. If you’re looking to block every single Windows 10¬†update completely, here is an exhaustive list of the updates you need to block on Windows 8.1 and Windows 7.
