  1. Ban me

    Unfortunately for everybody, deffering v1803 via gpedit on Enterprise 1709 doesn’t work because MS released it as stable and then it downloads it and install. Even with 365 days delay option 1803 still downloads and installs. The only way to get rid of forced 1803 upgrade is to let it download a few MB of it and then use wushowhide.diagcab to hide it and not let it download. And I’m 100% sure MS will release some kind of patch to circumvent this and force it to users.

    W10 1709 does this although all upgrade settings have been configured in gpedit, O&O ShutUp 10, W10 Privacy, W10 privacy tweaker, disabled all MS maintenance/update tasks… Total forced crapware OS.

    P.S. Please stop promoting botched W10 versions like 1803 until they are production ready.
