Yes I do, oh no you don’t

It seems like Samsung and Microsoft Windows is playing tug of war these days. A while back it was discovered that Samsung was disabling Windows Update when it did an update. With a Samsung SW Update, it included Disable_Windowsupdate.exe. A user found that they were being asked if they wanted to turn on Windows Update when they booted as it was randomly being reset.

To bypass this, you would need to uninstall SW Update Service from your machine. So why does Samsung do this? It’s to prevent Microsoft from using their drivers instead of Samsung’s which could break the use of hardware.

We’re not sure yet what happens on these devices with Windows 10, since Windows 10 forces updates.
