how do I prevent windows update from every activating? I literally just did a fresh wipe, disabled wuaserv, stopped the service and then as soon as I plugged in my ethernet cable and opened Microsoft edge, windows update goes off. How do I prevent this from happening on my device. I don't want any updates ever. none. please help. I don't want anything modifying my machine unless I click install myself.
Also, what is secure boot mode do in the bios?
What does CSM do in the bios?
I noticed I had a custom boot mode setup in the bios, unknown to me, I never did it. I just played with some settings and restore factory keys or something and then switch from system to set up mode or whatever it is, disabled csm and enabled secure boot mode and passworded my bios. am I protected or is this vulnerable? I don't know what any of this stuff does and the manual does not explain what these features do or how they impact my system.
Could the custom bios boot mode enable someone else to control my internet connection? Anytime I mouth off, internet gets cut for 10 minutes. How do I secure my bios and internet adaptor? Do I need to sell off my hardware or something? Do I need to exchange modem at internet service provider?
