The current workaround is to unplug from the router and use Wifi only, which temporarily allows me to postpone he Windows 10 upgrade if the wifi set to a metered connection. I used a published registry hack to set the ethernet connectiono cost metric to metered as well, but it had effect blocking Windows upgrade (which Microsoft itself offers no option to decline or vm dlay)

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
