Disable Windows 10 Update

We do not recommend updating old Windows versions to Windows 10. Update is a lot of work and you always have some risks to consider.

If you stoll plan to upgrade your old Windows to Windows 10 we highly recommend to check:

  • Are all hardware components compatible and supported by Windows 10?
  • All installed Software compatible to Windows 10
  • Are all plugged in devices and everything connected over the network compatible to Windows 10?

Even if all requirements are fulfilled there is still a risk of failure during update.
