    set windows to metered connection. http://www.howtogeek.com/224471/how-to-prevent-windows-10-from-automatically-downloading-updates/

    Please note this doesn't mean you can just ignore updates forever. At some point Windows will force a download regardless of your settings. Microsoft doesn't want people running Windows with no updates for five years anymore.
  2. never allow it to acces the internet ?? that's about it [that's right I forgot . with 10 you cant even install it with out internet ''cloud based OS] .. notice the terms temporally or postpone in the wording of things ?

    You can install Win10 without an internet connection. You will need connection at some point after the install to activate, just like every Win OS since XP.
  4. you don't need internet for xp vista or 7 for anything , nice try though better luck next time

    see think xp -7 you can phone in the activation 10 you cant xp -7 you can manually download updated 10 you cant heck you cant pick and chose you jusrt accept with 10 -0- choice then thjink 99% of the updates for xp-7 are for internet issues and security anyway ? so if your not on the net you don't even need any of them to start with then you could still get them stand a lone ?

    ya , your fooled and a proud 10 user I assume ?

    You can phone in the Win 10 activation as well, just like XP/Vista/7/8.
    You can download Win 10 Updates as well.
    Here is how to get the Anniversary update: http://www.windowscentral.com/windows-10-anniversary-update-iso-available

    Or, you can continue to spout misinformation.
  6. Just go to Services, Windows Update, then disable it. That stops all Win Updating.

    When you are ready to update again, just set it to Automatic.
