    Hey,

    since 10240 I always used Mini Update tool to disable Windows Update. Unfortunately that doesn't seem to work (at least for me).

    Is this a bug or is this a change like the group policy thing?

    You can set it to Notify for download and notify for install with gpedit.msc.
    Then you can choose when to d/l updates by yourself.

    Here's how I do it:
    Click "Search windows" on the taskbar, type in gpedit.msc, Open it.
    Then here's the path: Computer Configuration=>Administrative Templates=>Windows Components=>Windows Update=>Configure Automatic Updates
    Doubleclick on the entry and choose "Enabled", change it's behaviour to nr 2 (Notify for download and notify for install)Done!

    Unfortunately O&O Shutup10 doesn't seem to work either.

    It works just fine for me, the same can not be said about drivers offered via WU. :motz:

    No prob at all, thanks for your nice work.

    Both tools are great, and aren't competing, they overlaps just on the WU section and maybe something else, but most of the functionality are complementary.

    It's worth to have both ;)

    Both tools however will not stop AutoUpdating under RS1, since RS1 has some additional approach to enforce an automatic updates. Even on Enterprise.

    I'm on srv2016 so I can't really add a lot. But I think that both tools include an option to easily disable the whole wu service.

    Does RS1 reenable it by itself?:g:o_O

    yep, it restarts it. Also by disabling whole WU servise I wonder, if manual updating will work.

    And then there’s me, the spirit of contradiction. All clever stuff to stop some admittedly undesirable updates. But disabling updates doesn’t work well in the long run.

    Firstly, modifying the system, especially using third party tools, entails a certain risk, which increases over time.
    Secondly, MS will keep trying to install the updates left behind, and you’ll have a constant struggle against it.
    Thirdly, some updates will be useful, even critical, but may well depend on those blocked being there.
    Fourthly, staying without updates is undermining the functionality and security of the system.

    In fact, XP is still a damn good OS, imo better in many respects than Win 10, yet the experts advise abandoning it, because of the lack of updates. But I had carried out the registry hack to get them, knowing that I was taking some risk, as I considered that the risk of staying without updates was greater.
