    I'm running Windows 10 at work and there is a security update that breaks the app I use for my phone. I want to stop it from installing but I can't figure out how with Windows 10.

    Windows 10 How-To Guides is for write ups of prepackaged solutions... Not for leading questions on issues not yet resolved.


    Is your PC at work on Windows 10 Pro? Do you have Admin rights? If so you can use Local Group Policy Editor to gain manual control of updates, per this How To: http://forums.windowscentral.com/win...ows-10-pc.html

    Do you mean it stops the phone app from working while its installing or it breaks the Phone app from working at all. I'm interpreting what your saying as it's only not working while that update is happening? Is that true?
