      For those of you who use the Windows Update Blocker to stop and prevent any further Windows Updates to Windows 10, this tool was updated to v1.2 on 21st April.

      Hope this helps…

      I have a file provided by Microsoft which blocks O/S updates selectively. I have one of dozens of Toshiba laptop models (with SSD) which will not upgrade past Win 10 v 1703 (The list is on a Toshiba website somewhere, sorry, i lost track of it). So i run wushowhide.diagcab which allows me to specify (with difficulty,  since it is an interface that is rather hard to make sense of- too bad about the “no swearing” rule here or i could provide further details) that I do not want to update past v 1703. If i allow it to update, i lose about 45 minutes productivity until the computer realises it cannot accept the update and reverts to the previous version. But progs like MS Office continue to update, along with Windows defender and all that kind of stuff.

      @rick-corbett,
      Thanks for the update on WUB from v1.1
      As I posted Here, there are several programs that do this, WUB included, it’s not an all inclusive list.

      WUB is among the easiest to understand and use, imho.
