I use a PC and laptop, but my laptop is a few years old now and a lot slower compared to my brand new gaming machine which installs/downloads updates like they are going out of fashion lol. But on my laptop i need to install quite a big update, which i do not want to install and i was wondering how i can stop it? Because obviously every time i delete the pre install files and turn on the internet it will just flash on the screen about wanting to download it. Thanks in advance.

What is the update you are referring to?

 

If this is a Windows update these usually have a ISO file you can download and install from there, this makes for a quicker download.

 

How to pause a Windows Update

Press the Windows key OS4o0pO.png and the R key to open the Run box.

Type cmd in the Run box, press the following keys together to run the Command Prompt as an administrator.

Shift, Ctrl, Enter

When the Elevated Command Prompt opens copy and paste the commands below one at a time pressing Enter after each command.

Enter net stop wuauserv

Enter net stop bits

Enter net stop dosvc


Close the Command Prompt.


If you want to resume the update do the following.

Open the Elevated Command Prompt per the instructions above, copy and paste the commnds below one at a time following each command by pressing the Enter key.

net start wuauserv

net start bits

net start dosvc


Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

It will prompt me with the windows update assistance box, then it will download (sometimes it won't) but then it will claim it cannot be installed anyway after saying everything is ok with my system. I'll give it a try thanks and it's the spring creators update that's trying to install i believe.

It can't be the Spring Creators Update since that has not, as yet, started to be rolled out.  The last update is a cumulative update that brings Version 1709 up to Build 16299.309.

Whatever it is, it's quite annoying flashing on the screen so i will have to try the method above when i go back on my laptop :D
