    Upgraded to 1903 days ago but now Win10 wants to make updates to 1809. So is this just a confusing MS naming convention for updates, or is Win10 doing something stupid?

    Well, hopefully Excelsior is the correct answer and not The Time Warp!

    I had planned on doing a little antenna modeling today but instead I've been having to babysit the stupid updates and do restarts. Now it's time to blow leaves around the yard. Arggh!

    I checked the update history on my machine. Since the middle of June I have had 15 Cumulative/Security updates and they were all for 1903. The last two were on 10/10/2019.

    On the last cumulative update they included
    • Updates to improve security when using Internet Explorer and Microsoft Edge.
    • Updates for verifying user names and passwords.
    • Updates for storing and managing files.
    So we may all be locked out of our machines soon. :rolleyes:

    Win 10 automatically restarts your machine, unless you have that feature turned off

    It's on. I wasn't clear. By "babysit" I mean that experience has taught me to examine the Updates list after the (final) restart for more to be done, because Windows is usually not smart enough to install all the applicable updates in one go.

    Why not just turn updates OFF ? Then pick the updates that you really want/need.

    One reason they have updates, Is to make users think you need MS support. And most users don't.

    The best thing that ever happened to Windows 7, Is when MS stopped supporting and needlessly updating it.
