Go into the Control Panel and set the updates to where YOU choose to install them. That way, you can download and install them when you're near WIFI. I would NOT go long without installing updates. You also need to make sure you keep an updated Anti-Virus software. I use the freebies and they work fine. (Avast)
I have a "spare" Win 8 notebook I'm downloading Win 10 to. We've already received a notice from our major software provider (Exact JobBoss) to NOT upgrade to WIN 10 yet because they're not guaranteeing "compatibility". Oh boy...here we go!
Win 7 is the best system they've ever had. Less blue screens by far over the infamous XP. We use the "PRO" version on all software because of networking.
History... anybody remember WOLFENSTEIN?

For those who are travelling and using limited or slow wifi services, an auto update could make for a very testy experience.
