Maaan, I'm envious! My PC still runs great, but it's 3 years old. I'm hoping it can last another 3 years. That seems to be the span for my PC's. Each one has lasted about 6 years so far. Maybe in 3 years I'll have money for a new one!

As far as I can see,you can't switch off auto updates now, you can pause them for up to thirty days, "Ahaaaaa", I hear you say, "Just keep pausing for thirty days", once you've paused and got to the end of how ever many days you paused for, you can'r pause again until you've updated.

I will dig deeper though.

Typically, for any audio production rig, one turns off auto updates for the simple reason that one random system update can cause various parts of your computer to no longer function properly in terms of software/hardware that you use for audio productions. E.G. Windows runs and update, you sit down and turn on your daw and all of the suddent you get a few pop up warnings that your existing libraries are no longer compatible. Or one of your fave plugins will no longer load. Etc.

When a system update is released, it's a good idea to google it to see if people are having issues rleated to audio production. In pro studios updates are often done on schedule a few months behind release to allow for bug fixes and to allow time to find out what the release might break.
Then again, in pro studios the main production computer is often set as a 'stand alone"(no active connection to the internet) so that it can't get infected from the internet/web, and can't accidently update itself and break itself right before a session. A machine can still be connected to another machine via ethernet for the purpose of backup/restore, without being on the web.

However, in most home studios, the main production rig is also the main rig in genearl for games/email/brosing etc.

I don't run my main rig "Stand Alone" as I am online too often with GMC etc. So I'm very careful about updates. I have updates set to download but not install. I research each update carefully before I install it.

I'm hoping this one lasts a loooong time. I don't think audio software is getting much more demanding at the moment, it seems to have plateaued a little.

Yup. Windows stopped letting you just click a check box a while back. They sorta force you risk wrecking the stability of your rig. However, you can do what lots off folks who use windows for audio are doing which is to dig under the hood a bit and put a stop to the windows force fed updates.
You can stop windows 10 from force fed updates. Just takes a bit of doing.
