    Fill your C: drive, leave only 500mb free~ it will never auto update again. You can use a program to trick windows update into thinking the drive is always full.

    There's an easy way for WiFi User via Settings:
    • open Settings
    • go to Network & Internet
    • click on WiFi
    • click on Advanced options
    • under Set as metered connection, change switch to On

    Over Ethernet, you could not use metered connection! Just you could still limit what's updated, means get priority updates only via the Update Section on Settings. To fill up an maybe huge HDD for to prevent those updates, is simply crazy and will down the performance of the machine quite a bit!

    OK, I'll buy into this. Now please list the programs you're telling us about. Inquiring minds want to know if only to avoid them.

    That's ridiculous. Just disable and stop the windows update service if you want to stop updates permanently.

    That's a trojan. Fill your drive with random files & folders that you can never delete. Yep, windows won't be able to update...

    Server 2016 seems to obey group policy.

    I just disable the bugger
    alternatively, if you want to know if anything is available, you use
    now dump 10 and go to server 2016, run run run

    seriously,

    If you want a smooth windows experience, open gpedit.msc and set windows update to notify,
    then make these 2 tasks:
    (Task scheduler in search)

    1. At logon initiate A silent Defender update with no delay
    Trigger: At logon and every hour
    Action:"C:\Program Files\Windows Defender\MSASCui.exe"
    Arguments:-Update -Hide

    2. At logon initiate a WU update with 1 minute delay so Defender update has time to finish
    Trigger: At logon
    Action:C:\Windows\System32\UsoClient.exe
    Arguments:StartScan

    You are now experiencing a Windows that doesn't bother you, and, you're up to date!

    14393 also obeys the group policy registry key.
    There's no need to use a program when you can just:
    Code:
    REG ADD "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate\AU" /v "NoAutoUpdate" /D 1 /T REG_DWORD /F

    Does that also prevent the automatic download of drivers?

    It seems that with 14393, driver updates are executed more aggressively than normal windows updates.
