    Is Stopping Windows 10 updates Possible ??

    I have a PC used exclusively for movies etc on a 65" TV screen. It presently works perfectly, especially where graphics are a concern. A year or so ago a windows update screwed up the graphics whereas the
    resolution was almost impossible to match the TV screen. Finally after a lot of tinkering, I finally got it working perfectly. Since then I have been avoiding any windows updates. Lately, it has been bugging me constantly trying to update. I get the message: "update now or 1 hour later". I keep optioning for the 1 hour later. I went into services.msc & disabled windows updates. It had no effect.
    Is there any way that I can stop this ??

    I am not having any luck in downloading Windows Update Blocker v1.1. When I try, I get hijacked into downloading something else. There is no legitimate .exe file available.
