    Critique my cmd script below meant to permanently disable windows update in Win10. What services have I left out?

    Code:
    :start
    Net stop "BITS" 
    Sc config "BITS" start=disabled
    Net stop "wuauserv"
    Sc config "wuauserv" start=disabled
    Timeout 300
    Goto start
    Pause
    P.S: I set timeout to 5 minutes cuz my eMMC drive can't handle too many rewrites/erase cycles. Otherwise it would have been 1-2 seconds on a normal HDD...

    Also what services do I need to stop to completely disable telemetry, etc?

    Network Store Interface Service and its dependencies, without it Windows assumes, there is no internet and will not even try to connect anywhere.
    You have to setup static IP and DNS servers manually though to be able to connect. Windows Update and store apps will also fail without it. :druff:

    Here's my updated cmd script to kill off windows update and telemetry too. What did I miss/leave out?

    P.S. script set to loop every 15 minutes (in case Windows 10 re-enables any service by "sneak attack"), but you can change it by modifying timeout...
