    Blue Screen When Shutting Off Windows Update Module

    In short,I need some serious help because this is how the forced update to windows 10 starts.
    My updates are set to Off but it updates anyway. I feel like i'm being straight hacked by microsoft.
    After it updates,Anytime i turn my computer back on it finished whatever update it downloaded behind
    my back. Now it's at a point where if i try to kill the "Windows Update Module" through task manager. I
    get a Blue screen of death "IRQL not less or equal". This only happens when i kill the windows update
    Module in task manager. I often kill this process for 2 core reasons.

    1.It's not supposed to be updating anything,Especially since i have the updates set to off.
    2.It takes up way too much CPU and Disk which causes this laptop to run even worse then what
    it already does.

    I say it runs worse because the CPU and Disk are already high because of McAfee alone. This just dog-piles
    the crappy performance which irritates me to no end because at this point when all this is going on i can't even
    play basic games like Sims 2 without serious lag issues. There is no winning.
    i guess eventually my laptop
    will just eventually shut off and update to windows 10 then?
