  • Windows 7 automatically upgrade or not

    Hello

    I am working with 2 computers under windows 7.

    The first is only for office jobs and the upgrade is automatically done... somedays when shutting down. Never met a problem.

    The second is for Edius 5.51 editing and the automatic upgrade of windows 7 is disable. Never met a problem.

    Question : is it a good idea to set the Edius editing computer to automatic upgrade of windows 7 ? ... or respect the idea of : "if it ain't broke, don't fix it"

    I think the general opinion is to disable the automatic update of Windows. Personally, I never had a problem with the automatic updates on my 'general purpose' PC

      I don't allow Windows to update automatically:
      When I get the information that there are some new important updates I do the following:
      1) I make a systemimage from my actual (=well working) system
      2) and only then I carry out the updates.

        I have automatic updates disabled on all Win7 PC

        I do it manually once a month when I have nothing to do

        also be sure to untick and hide the update that causes the Win10 update notification to appear in the taskbar if you do not wish this notification

        If you are not interested in Windows 10, you can remove this program from your PC. Go to Windows Update->Installed update, remove KB3035583. Also, you need to hide the update again in windows updates to prevent it from auto installing again since this is marked “important”.
