Hello John, I followed all this I am learning.

But, if you go to the tutorial ( Option one ) To enable or disable the Windows 10 upgrade in the reg file, (post 12 in this thread ) there is no mention of Current Version in between windows\..........\windowsUpdate, so I was right and not stupid

Yep Derek that is what I think I said or at least or meant the reasoning is not apparent to me.

Yes I know Thelma I was not insinuating you had missed something it is really just a blanket cover for any 10 upgrade - well in my tiny mind it is.

The whole 10 issue is also in my mind one of the worst things to come out of Microsoft and frankly I am sick of the constant jamming it down everyone throats with not much recourse to be able to make up ones own mind (however small mine might be).
I don't go to a dual car dealership and ask for a Ford and then they start shoving Toyota at you because they can make more money on the Toyota. It is down to greed whether anyone likes it or not.

My best guess is because Home version first of all costs less and can not be configured for true domain networking and routing. Home does not use a Work Group set up it still uses only Home Group. Business networks can be managed, monitored and updated from a common domain server, that is a little much for a few machines in a home. Domains will have common printer servers, which allows for businesses to monitor traffic, capture data and usage in great detail and assign access to specific printers to specific users. A lot of this comes down to cost management and helping to keep employees using only the equipment which they should be using. The director of IT would get an ear full from a CEO if everyone was wearing out the CEO's nice color printer for holiday cards and pictures of kids and kitties. Imagine a 30 story office building with 10 printers and 100 computers on each floor. Somebody has to direct the traffic. That function is not needed in a home environment.

On a different note, I can not get over the increase in traffic on this site in the last 2 weeks for exactly the reason of M$ updates have caused hundreds if not thousands who use groups like this because M$ will net be honest about what happened to their computer to cause it to not work now. I spent 30 years working in business environments all around Washington DC and if we conducted business in this fashion we would be on a very fast train heading out of town.

Keep doing what you are doing, you vigilance and patience is a valuable trait to have through this crap. Pity the fools who are not capable of doing what you are and have not got anybody doing what you are doing they can't even use their computers.

don't understand that bit. surely if you tick "give me recommended the same way" it means recommended updates use the same settings as whatever you selected from the dropdown list for important updates? (as opposed to god knows how?)

i understand he means untick that. what i don't understand is why (if you select say... "check but let me decide what to install") or what happens to the recommended updates. do they just appear in the optional page instead?

Yes, that's the point of doing that. To get them out of the important section.

ok. thanks. somehow got it into my mind that recommended was higher priority than important and would auto install if i didn't tick it and set important to check only XD

Hi,
Nope Recommended is just that mostly betaware that does more harm than good about a 50-50% chance
