• MS-DEFCON 2: Make sure your machine’s set to block automatic updates

    With Patch Tuesday coming tomorrow, there are all sorts of threatening scenarios at work.

    Worst case: Microsoft declares that Win10 version 1903 is ready for distribution. We used to call that “Currrent Branch” and then “Semi-Annual Channel.” Now, I’m not sure what it’s called. Perhaps RTM? I still like the term “Guinea Pig edition.”

    Anyway, now’s the time to make sure you’ve gummed up the automatic update works. Full instructions in Computerworld Woody on Windows.
