Single Status Update
Another Win 10 update, another round of BSODs, broken apps, corrupted data, broken drivers, reset settings, etc... - and a new feature! Flickering Calculator Icon - how cool is that?
This is what happens when the last competent person left the company a good 5 years ago and you outsource the work to third world high school drop-outs.
Cheaper != Better
I'm getting sick and tired of this, I guess it might be time to switch to Linux and just run games on a VM.

Yes there is, or well - there is for some people. Disabling it through services.msc works only for a couple months, at best. You also need registries edited, edited group policy, blocked IPs of the MS servers, etc. And even that only works for some time, or at least for me - I know when the computer just freezes and there is a buzzing noise coming from the speakers that a Windows Update was forced. And sure enough, when I reboot, it starts installing it right away...
The only way to really keep your PC clean of the crap is to either be lucky enough to set it up just right for your machine/area, or to never connect the PC to internet...
Did everything, but blocking their server adresses trough hosts file. It literally re-enables itself(Windows update service) pretty much every other day. It just became a habit of my own to just check if it is enabled before i shut down my PC and if it is i just disable it again and again. If they think they can outstubborn me they are fucking wrong. Funny thing is i had it enabled and updated my W10 regularly, until one fucked update that wouldn't install no matter what. It would just undo all the changes and kept redownloading and rebboting my PC. It gotten to the point where it pissed me off so i turned it off for good. Never gonna let that piece of shit update again. Next point. Finding and installing LTSB version and hopefully enjoy life again.
