Win10 users - don't click on "Check for Updates"

Apparently, if you simply check for updates on any version of Win10 prior to 1809, Microsoft will update your system automatically to its newest version. Since 1809 is not supported by Merging for the latest version of Pyramix, users should be cautious.

I am so sick of Windows 10 updates, I can't even describe it at this point. They change so many settings to default every time...

All I can say is that we are running 13 systems here and I will not upgrade any of them to windows 10. Windows 7 is rock solid and does not have all the extra bloat and automatic updates. On the systems I did test W10 on, I saw a noticeable increase in system instability and the administrator and permissions issue is a non-starter. On the 2 laptops that we have to run w10 on, I've disabled windows updates and do the updates manually with WSUSoffline.
As always, YMMV.
All the best,
