      Help!! I have tried to do the right thing and Microsoft won’t let me!!
      I am running Windows 10 Home Anniversary Update 1607, Build 14393.2007. Recently, a screen began popping up that said “Your device needs the latest security updates. Microsoft can’t install important security updates on your PC until you install the most current version of Windows 10.”  I have been updating every month after Woody’s DefCon graphic says it’s okay. I was waiting for the go sign for the February updates when I thought I would take care of this “little” problem.
      I selected the “update now” button (after I turned off the metered setting, Thanks Woody!) and for 28 hours the 5GB file downloaded. The Windows 10 assistant screen showed one progress line, while the windows update screen in “Settings” showed another progress line (different percentages were shown to have downloaded). I just let it grind away.
      Finally, something installed (I saw three files in the update history), I restarted and low and behold I have the exact same version 1607 as I started out with and the warning screens started badgering me again with the same update message!!!
      Now I find out the support, such as it is, will end April 10. I am a reasonably intelligent person but this constant updating has been very frustrating and beyond annoying. I am extremely tired of hearing my wife swearing at the PC every weekend because even when the metered setting is on it seems Microsoft still is able to try to do updates and slow the machine down to crawl. I don’t know what to do and of course I can’t even find a phone number on MS support site. I am writing this on my Mac Book Pro and which has support links (with phone numbers)
      Please, any help would be greatly appreciated.

      Before going any further, I would recommend you at least backup your data on that machine – everything under the User ID.
      It would also be a good thing to mane an image of the drive.Macrium Reflect and EaseUS Todo are good , free imaging programs.
