Runtime Broker using too much Disk and Win 10 updates pushing in

I remain frustrated with how slow Windows 10 is making my i5 laptop at startup and how controlling Windows 10 updates are.

Earlier today I had to make a few changes to a Word doc, print it and run to an appointment. Win 10 wouldn't talk to the printer so I had to reboot but it wouldn't let me without installing updates. Then when it reboots it takes forever before I can do anything because Runtime broker and AntiMalware chew up 100% disk usage for ages.

So I have two questions.
1) does the following suggestion about disabling Runtime Broker make sense, or is it risky? http://www.tenforums.com/network-sharing/7907-runtime-broker-process.html
2) Is there any way of regaining the ability to reboot without installing updates so I don't have to be late for appointments while I wait for Win 10 to install updates?
