    Being forced to update?

    Hello, I'm Emily

      I'm being forced to download new feature for Windows 10, but I don't have, nor want to install Windows 10. When I open CC, I am prompted to install this new feature or quit (image 1). When I choose to install, it says it was unable to install, with error code 46 (image 2). Can I ignore the update prompt and use CC like before or is there some way to make the update work?
