        Hi all

        I noticed that a windows 10 pro pc continued to up date even though updates were paused.
        I upgraded the licence to enterprise and same problem any ideas?

        When I checked the “Update History” no up dates show up in, Quality Updates Driver Updates, Definition Updates or Other Updates?

        Yet when I check “Uninstall Updates” I can see KB456351 – KB4569751

        Also KB4569073 and KB4565554 were installed last month while updates were also paused.

        PC will now not locate saved jpegs?

        Thanks in advance as always…..D

        When your pause ends Windows downloads and installs all updates without asking. Is this what happened?

        We need details of the version of Windows and how you paused.

        Type this for the Windows version. Win R, winver, Enter.
        Use Windows Snipping Tool to capture, save to PNG and upload.

        cheers, Paul
