      When you do make it back, give me a heads up.

      Then start with these two posts: #2324609 and #2324620.
      Let me know when you’ve done that and we’ll talk about the instructions in #2324661.

      Grasping at straws.
      Read through AKB2000016 particularly Sections 3 and 5, and see if there are any clues there.
      Did you at any time mess with Metered connections? I have seen that and Resume from Pause both initiate download/install in spite of GP settings.

      Read through the thread and be sure you understand it before you do this.
      Or just was a day or so and Windows Update will rescan on its own and do it for you.

      The Defender update should go ahead an update anyway. On mine, if I leave it alone, the Defender update disappears/installs if I just leave it alone.
      But it won’t hurt to leave the others hidden till you want to install them. Just remember they are there.
      When you unhide them, they should sit in the queue instead of downloading on you immediately, so you will still have control.

      Use wushowhide to hide the ones you want to delay.
      Clear the WU queue or wait till WU checks for updates on its own.
      When there is nothing in the queue but the ones you want, install them.
      Then use wushowhide to unhide the others. If you have the “2” (notify download/install) setting, they shouldn’t download until you click the “Download” button. They should just sit in the queue waiting on you.

      Were the updates to Office or Windows (or both)?
      Are you making changes in Outlook or in the OS settings?
      What version of Win10 are you running?

      Place the ISO on your desktop.
      Disconnect your computer from your network. The upgrade needs to be done OFFLINE.
      Right click on the ISO and choose “Open with” Explorer.
      It will mount the ISO as another drive letter.
      Navigate to that drive and run setup.exe
      Choose to save your Apps and Data, say “NO” when it asks you to go online to update (if you allow it, it will upgrade you to 20H2).
      After the upgrade is complete, go through the Settings App and the Control Panel and be sure all of your settings are correct (particularly Windows Update settings) – it will change some of them.
      Right click on the drive letter and unmount the ISO.
      Then go online and run Windows Update like you usually do (the ISO install will not be up to date).

      You could try one of the Flash alternatives like Ruffle.

      Here’s your .NET for January, 2021. There were no Security-only .NET updates.

      Download only the update for the version(s) installed on your PC.
      There were only updates for .NET 4.6-4-7-2 and 4.8 (non-Secruity only)
      The other updates in the Rollup are older and should already be installed.

      .NET Quality Rollup KB4598500
      .NET 3.5.1 KB4578952 (Oct 2020)

      It seems that 20H2 now works for both v1909 and v2004.

      If you want automatic updating, the set Quality Deferrals at the number of days after Patch Tuesday you want the updating to be done.
      Also, you should not use the “2” (notify download/install) setting because that allows for manual download/install instead of automatic.
      There are also settings to control the time window for the download/install and the following mandatory reboot so it does not impact working hours.

      I would suggest setting TargetReleaseVersion to control the upgrades so that all your computers are on the same Win10 version.

      AKB2000016 is not intended for Business guidance. It is aimed at individual Users.

      The following is not aimed at Business/Enterprise Users who are supported by IT Departments. It is for the Consumers and Small Businesses that are patching their own computers without technical support.
