Kids, yeah. Easy scapegoats...

WUSA sounds useful, must look into that. If some kids mess up my laptop

steve: WUSA to the rescue.
I've read about but never used it. The Windows Update display is really irritating but since I've not installed any updates on my current system--other than the ones that were there via the custom build--it's not that big a deal. Given what you are doing on the friend's laptop, WUSA is definitely the way to go...

Exactly what I do!

I also found that there are entries for it in Task Scheduler (Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Task Scheduler > Microsoft > Windows > Customer Experience Improvement Program) and even though I'd chosen not to pariticipate just to be sure, I set all 3 entries in Task Scheduler to "disabled".

I also did the same thing (set to "disabled" in Task Scheduler) to the 2 entries in "Application Experience" (also in the > Task Scheduler > Microsoft > Windows section).

You're welcome...if I'm remembering correctly, I was doing a browser search on something--can't remember the specifics but probably something to do with ceip--and ended up on a Microsoft (I think) admin level documentation page which outlined the entries in Task Scheduler...


Later Edit: I am soooo damned anal! Starting about 3 systems ago, I began taking very extensive notes when setting up a new system and any subsequent changes I made to the system. I then took a further step and typed up the notes, org'd by date and then later by category and then created a pdf for each (by date and by category). When I had my new system custom built in 2015, I used these pdf's extensively updating my notes for the new system. At any rate, as I was typing above reply to you, I wondered if I'd made a note of the url for the Task Scheduler info. I did...'-}}


It's not a Microsoft page but a VMware page....
