    My MacBook Pro went to download the latest Beta update and upon reboot and login it shoots terminal stuff on left corner of screen and reboots saying there is an error. Did a restore and as soon as it downloaded again same thing. How can I block the Beta build from installing?

    Open your System Preferences/App Store pane.
    Uncheck "Install macOS updates"

    Same pane, you could also remove your access to receive beta software updates, if you like.

    I hear you - but you did ask how to block the beta build from installing (automatically).

    The "other" option, still in the same pane, is to turn off "Download newly available updates in the background", so updates don't even download, unless you choose to download.
    You would have full control over doing that when you are next ready.

    I suggest that it could be worthwhile to do a reinstall of the current Sierra version. That might leave you with a safe return to the beta, if you want to try again.

    You don't still have that Kaspersky stuff installed, do you?
