Correct me if Iím wrong but this is my understanding so far.

There are two system partitions. When an update comes down it is copied to the inactive system partition and when ready the boot sector is changed to boot to the new image. If this is correct could we not, at least for a temp fix, resize the inactive partition or format it to an incompatible file system like NTFS forcing the download to fail and so the update would fail.

Just a thought, what do ya think??

It is a MSFT propriority system that no one has really broke yet (or at least I have seen) we have been limited to upgrading only. If you are worried about a global update, I don't know what to tell you.
