Absolutely and there have been several cases of them getting around site security, more from being inquisitive, very tenacious and not malicious.

Never heard of any of those 40 Android devices before, it doesn't appear to include any of the major brands.  Thought it does say that this is not a comprehensive list.

As a long time user of Ccleaner, I'm very happy that the product is now part of Avast Software.

The March 2018 Security Update Review
https://www.zerodayinitiative.com/blog/2018/3/13/the-march-2018-security-update-review
I was delayed yesterday after my presentation.
I had been asked to hook up to their wifi and after the presentation, I was greeted with the
notification not to shut down the computer till the update completed. :)
Love this new update feature in Windows 10.  :(

I do hate this authoritarian approach to windows updates by MS.

First off I did the this is a metered connection, delaying my updates until I chose to do it.  Now that options is ignored, but the one thing that does seem to still have an effect is setting the Active Hours so it is way outside of any possible conflict with work.

Windows Update > Update settings > Change active hours - mine is set at 14:00 to 22:00 (Maximum 18 hours).  Or you could try the Restart options > Schedule a time - I have this turned off.

I don't know if that first option could have helped you in conjunction with the second option.
