    How do I stop Windows 10 from downloading after I've cancelled the reservation?

    I cancelled the reservation a month ago, have no intention of installing it now. But I have other Windows updates to download onto my computer, like the usual ones we all get from time to time. When I select the updates I want to download, making sure none of them are labeled as Windows 10 or the app that was used for the reservation, Updates # KB3035583 & KB2976978 (which I did uninstall followed by a disk clean up and Windows System Update Clean Up) anyways, when I select the updates to run, it starts by downloading Windows 10! Which I quickly select STOP DOWNLOAD! See pic!

    My question is, can I stop this before it downloads anything onto my computer. I don't want to tie up my computer with useless downloading of something I am not going to install anyways which will most likely take forever.................and if I cant stop it, will I have the option NOT to install it? or will it just install it anyways? I don't want a bunch or worthless garbage left behind on my brand new computer, so can someone please help, I appreciate it! Thanks!

  • Rock & Pop: Can music be sexy?

    Helloooo R&P! ~~;-)

    This was influenced by a question from C.F. about, why does music make us feel so good? So thank you for that excellent question.

    Well it got me thinking, can music be sexy? Well it can be for me, a huge part of me feels that way. I'll hear a song and think...damn thats a sexy song. :p But I have talked to people that just dont get that and think I am nuts. I think that is unfortunate and I cant understand why they wouldn't respond to certain music that way. So I want to know your thoughts on this...

  • R&P: How about some great songs about the "Ocean" or "Sea" or ....?

    Helloooo R&P ~~;-)

    I am taking a little trip to the ocean soon. Going this time of the year, it will probably be stormy, maybe rainy and windy. But I kind of like it that way sometimes because I really enjoy watching the waves crash up against the rocks and the power of the ocean. So I was thinking about how many songs are based on the ocean, the sea, or rivers or just bodies of water in general.

    MQ: So what are some of your favorite songs that are about the "Ocean" or any other body of water?

  • How much does image play a part in the success of a pop group vs a metal band?

    Hello R&P ~~:-)

    I think a lot of what makes a pop group successful is based on their appearance and image to the public for them to sell records. Which, personally I could care less about, it should be about the music.

    On the flip side, I dont think it is at all important for metal bands to have a certain look to achieve success as a musician, its all about the music.

    MQ: Your thoughts on this?

    In referring to "your style" what do you like?

    BQ: Do you have a certain image/style you like to portray?

    If so.....
