Several things. I never get updates unless I allow it. I have it set as I showed previously. I do not understand getting updates when you tell it not to. Next, I upgraded my copy to professional and I updated my Office package via an asian key seller. Yup, cost about $20. Keys work great; you download the software directly from Microsoft. The updates allow for more than operating bugs; they update security holes as they find them. It's pretty complex and anyone who doesn't take the updates is just looking for trouble. Lastly, you need three more things to make your Win 10 experience complete. 1) A fast computer to take advantage of it with an SSD. 2) A UPS to keep powerline transients from killing your machine or corrupting your software. 3) Backup software with an external drive (maybe two) using something like Acronis Backup.
