    Maybe you could change the settings via Task Manager to 'stopped'. It's the service: wuauserv and run in netsvcs group.

    Either install Catalyst before running Windows Update; or un-converge Windows Update and use the classic Control Panel app:

    Code:
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\WindowsUpdate\UX]
    "IsConvergedUpdateStackEnabled"=dword:00000000
    
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\WindowsUpdate\UX\Settings]
    "UxOption"=dword:00000000

    It should've been obvious. Better than cluttering the desktop or any folder with shortcuts.

    I just removed Windows 10 for this. To get my graphics card work (damn switchable graphics), It needs custom drivers, which only work if offical drivers are not installed.

    Since Windows 10 neither allowed me to "don't install device drivers" and "disable automatic updates", the wrong drivers are installed, destroying my system.

    Here's a registry edit to stop WU from installing updates and drivers automatically:-
    Code:
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WindowsUpdate\Auto Update]
    "AUOptions"=dword:00000002

    This works great but doesn't bode well for the gradual removal of win32 and other 9x-style cruft.

    In case anyone cares about my setup...

    Intel HD 4000 with 4061 driver
    Radeon 7730m with Omega driver

    There is a way to stop auto-download and auto-install updates:
    Start --> Run --> gpedit.msc --> Computer Configuration --> Administrative Templates --> Windows Components --> Windows Update --> Configure Automatic Updates --> ON --> Let me know before downloading and installing updates

    Also untick "Install during automatic conversation"

    Registry file to restore old Windows Update, disable forced reboot and stuff. Using old WU you can hide updates you do not want to install:
    Code:
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WindowsUpdate\Auto Update]
    "AUOptions"=dword:00000001
    "CachedAUOptions"=dword:00000001
    "ElevateNonAdmins"=dword:00000001
    "EnableFeaturedSoftware"=dword:00000001
    "ForcedReboot"=dword:00000002
    "IncludeRecommendedUpdates"=dword:00000001
    
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\WindowsUpdate\UX]
    "IsConvergedUpdateStackEnabled"=dword:00000000
    
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\WindowsUpdate\UX\Settings]
    "UxOption"=dword:00000000
    Backup reg:
    Code:
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WindowsUpdate\Auto Update]
    "AUOptions"=dword:00000004
    "CachedAUOptions"=dword:00000002
    "ElevateNonAdmins"=dword:00000001
    "EnableFeaturedSoftware"=dword:00000001
    "ForcedReboot"=dword:00000002
    "IncludeRecommendedUpdates"=dword:00000001
    
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\WindowsUpdate\UX]
    "IsConvergedUpdateStackEnabled"=dword:00000001
    
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\WindowsUpdate\UX\Settings]
    "UxOption"=dword:00000002
