Re: Trouble from windows update


Nope, just select one way to stop the updates.   Usually regedit is for serious system administration use and a mistake there can easily break windows.  Of course, you can make mistakes in Group Policy editing too, but there are more functions that over time that you may use group policy to change.  For instance: setting the network time sync more frequently.

Thank you for this!  There is another item on this page titled:  "How to prevent Windows Update from installing driver updates using Registry”.  Should this step be performed as well?

Subject: [DXLab] Trouble from windows update

early this morning, Windows tried to install (but failed) 2019-07 
Cumulative Update for Windows 10 Version 1803 for x64-based Systems 

As a result, I have lost my virtual com ports...

in Device Manager, under USB controllers, they show as USB Serial 
Converter (with a yellow triangle with an exclamation mark inside it), 
and have the correct driver loaded, but somehow they are not working, 
not findable in the config for DXLab Commander, and so I am at a loss 
what to do /change / fix next...

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks & 73 de Dave, W5SV
