    Compulsory Windows 10 Updates RELAXED by Microsoft (Well, some, anyway!)

    Microsoft has confirmed that Windows 10 users will be able to block or undo some updates to the system. See here for more:

    Compulsory updates for Home users have not been relaxed. Microsoft has provided a tool to help deal with problematic updates after they have been installed. They must still be installed first. If they are and cause no problem almost all users will just leave them alone.

    There has been no change in the announced policies about installing updates.

    It's not really block or undo. It's undo then block.

    @Joe: As I see it; there is an element of "relaxation" in that updates are no-longer a "take it or leave it" matter(!)
