Yes, I knew about that and we will probably do that if they force updates anyway or we run out of time with no fix in the TSX mount driver. Of course I suppose they could override that as well if they wanted to. They may already at their discretion. Here is what one source (Tenforums) had to say:
Windows will automatically download and install updates, except on metered connections. In that case, Windows will automatically download only those updates required to keep Windows running smoothly.
So does MS think this update is required to keep Windows running smoothly? Who knows?
I have also seen some suggestions that one could block access to the Windows update servers at the level of your router. If that worked it would be immune from being bypassed by MS.
