I've heard that you can actually change that in win 10 pro and enterprise, also you can defer updates which is nice thing but I don't know. Guys is it worth upgrading, If I do upgrade it will be to Win 10 pro.

Any advice and tips will be greatly appreciated
The step I listed in my first post will tell you how to disable the service.

Thanks. Does it stay or at some point reverts with any windows updates. Also what you think of me upgrading. My son has win 10 basic and I was splaying with it the other day, it feels slightly faster but the full control of the windows that I have on my win 7 it's not in win 10, that's another reason I'm hesitating. I know there is a way to disable certain things to make it more private and hack reg but how you guys feel about the whole win 10 .... don't minimize the cons I really would like to hear from owners themselves
