Turn off updates to Windows10

This procedure completely disables Windows Update. The computer will not download updates and therefore over time you will use an operating system that is not updated. It remains possible to manually update the virus definitions of Defender.

Disable updates can be useful for those who use the computer for automation or to avoid problems during short periods, When there are errors in the updates and ’ anticipation that these errors will be corrected.

We do not recommend keeping Windows Update turned off for too long. We recommend that you turn it back on at least once every three months, maximum one year, and give him a night time to discard any accumulated updates.

Disable updates is easy, the following procedure seems long, but once you have learned the run in seconds.

1) Open the Task Manager (Task Manager) of Windows 10.
2) Open the tab “Services” (at the top right).
3) Click the blue writing “Open Services” (in the lower part of the window).
4) Make sure the list is in alphabetical order.
5) If unsorted click “Name” to bring up the triangle with the point at the top.
6) Scroll down the list of services until you find “Windows Update”.
7) Double click with the mouse on “Windows Update”.
8) Service Properties window opens “Windows Update”.
9) In the tab “General”, at line “Startup type”, Select the ’ option “Disabled”.
10) Confirm by clicking the button “Apply” (you have to press it, OK alone is not enough)
11) Close the window with “Ok”.

To reactivate “Windows Update” you do exactly the same thing but at row nine you choose “Manual”.

    Always nondeterministic programming there is a new chapter here:

  2. Livio says:

    The version 1.5 the SignalScope not by mistake in closing although it lacks the "Buffers".

  3. Livio says:

    Published version 6.6 Theremin with minor improvements.

  4. Livio says:

    We published two new adapters to power the active antenna from receivers that supply voltage on coaxial cable.

  5. Livio says:

    The Stepper Driver is finally under construction, within a few days will be complete with all the features:

  6. Livio says:

    There is a new application (for now only for specialists)

  7. Livio says:

    Updated SignalScope to version 1.6
    (24 hours of storage buffer)

  8. Livio says:

    Updated the speech application with many improvements:

  9. Livio says:

    Theremino the system has just become a community on Hackster:

    There are exciting plans to read:

  10. Livio says:

    We've updated the MediaPlayer with option “Trigger”.

    This is a nicety (stop the video if the boot Slot back under 500) but can someone make it convenient.

  11. Livio says:

    There is a new application to filter the signals that pass through the slots

    You can filter the incoming data from sensors.
    You can filter the signals that travel from one application to another.
    You can experiment and teaching demonstrations on FIR filters applied to real data.

  12. Livio says:

    With the new Theremino Buttons even if you know programming can create simple but effective control panels.

    You can use the “Buttons” with the mouse or with the “Touch Screen”.
    You can specify the size and colors.
    You can specify a value to be written into a Slot.
    You can specify the variation speed (slow movements or fades).
    You can specify a particular behaviours with special commands “Random” and “Pulse” (and with others that we will implement in the future).
    You can specify invisible buttons (or more properly “Active slot”) that act even without pressing a button. To activate them using a second Slot called “Trigger”.

    We have updated the HAL to version 7.4, Download:

  14. Livio says:

    We have improved the possibilities for calibration of the spectrometer:

  15. Livio says:

    We have added buttons and adjustment to the Logger:

  16. Livio says:

    The new application Theremino EKG is designed specifically to highlight the frequency variations and arrhythmias. This is the ideal system for frequent checks, better than any ECG. We don't want alcohol, long strands, electrodes and conductive cream but just an optical sensor and within seconds you are already recording.

  17. Livio says:

    The application Filters can now also use IIR filters (Infinite Pulse Response) It also contains two great apps to design the filters.

    The application Wave Generator now also has the waveforms “Noise” and “Ocg3”

  18. Livio says:

    For fall expected big news.

    We are preparing the Net-HAL and the Net-Modules that are an extension of the system via WiFi, local network and the Internet. In other words IOT (Internet Of Things), but a IOT to thereminica, that is simple and effective. For this section we have to thank a great expert, He has acquired professional knowledge about networks for decades and now shares them with all of us, in the pure spirit of the exchange of ideas and free software. It's called Fabrizio and you can see it here:

    We are also studying the possibility of using an Arduino in place of Master. This can be useful in cases where you must program protocols, such as I2C, to read sensors that the Master cannot read.

  19. Livio says:

    The SeriHAL application is now two-way:

    The world thereminico can communicate not only with Arduino and Processing, But even with Octave (the poor cousin and free of MatLab), with Python and other SW still: just need load their serial plugins. Think about what you can do by managing the OpenCV computer vision functions via Python/Numpy and dialoguing with the slots Theremino-HAL and Master/Slave modules: facial recognition, mechanical/optical tracking, real-time image processing and other graphics of the highest level within the reach of (almost) all.

  20. Livio says:

    The application version 1.1 the application Filters also contains a new application to generate IIR filters from analog filters with discrete components.
