In your case it's time to move to another OS. Linux has the usual Chrome, Office Suite and more.
is it okay if i turn updates off PERMANANTLY because they are horribly unavoidable and sometimes it forces me to update with a stuck screen. So I HAVE to update mid work. Just horrendous! Especially when i am at work! I cant update my laptop when i am at work. net being a **** storm as well. So i just have to sit there, wait for it to update. HOW ABOUT NO!? solutions please!
