    Experienced CNC owners NEVER leave their CNC machine connected to the internet, for precisely this reason. We know this happens.
    YOUR fault.

    I too have an IT background - back to the start of the 70s. But I have never met any other company which so ignores the customer's wishes as MS. But then, who else writes such awful SW?

    My design PC is connected to the internet, with all updates turned off (how to avoid having W10 stuffed down your throat), but the PC running my CNC is NOT connected. Both are actually W7, and they will stay that way. File transfer between the two is via USB-net, and it is not problem at all. The USB key usually lives in my pocket anyhow.

    Cheers

    The latest version of Windows 10 Pro has added more options on their Update page. There's now a setting to "pause" updates for 35 days. But there's no way to stop them.
    So I'd consider setting the Pause, and every 30 days or so manually update yourself, so you don't get any surprises.

    If you want to completely stop updates, stop using Windows.

    If you are using Mach3, you have ONLY got Windows.
    All is solved by removing the internet connection.

    Instead of removing the internet connection (physically), you can:-
    1. use a fixed IP address for the CNC PC without DEFAULT GATEWAY.
    In that way you can still transfer files between PCs via the network.
    2. Disable windows update by disabling the Windows update service and ALSO disable an entry in scheduled task put in by Microsoft to enable back windows update when you login.

    It is not clear whether ALL Microsoft SW honours that off-switch, especially with W10.
