      Windows 10 & Sky GO

      Thought I would try the upgrade and Sky Go works fine with it. There is one problem though in that you can no longer tell windows not to download updates, and as I discovered (10meg 'ish' connection), I don't have the bandwidth to watch Sky GO in its highest quality streaming, AND download Windows updates at the same time.

      Just a heads up for anyone in a similar position thinking about Win10, and will almost certainly make me revert back to Windows 7 unless a workaround can be found.

      You can't even appear to be able to schedule when they download.

      Microsoft have now created a troubleshooter file that will allow you to stop drivers updating automatically.
