    Thanks!
    It is possible to disable updates but not the Microsoft Store?

    Yes, there are every day thousands of new ones of those around, and they are all aimed at you, because you are important!

    You really don't get it, it's not about importance.
    An example:
    Pc's get infected with bots, all those pc's form a botnet, those botnets are used by criminals to attack websites/servers, for fun, or for criminal reasons.

    You won't even notice your pc is infected but the criminals who control the botnets use your pc for their gain.

    Is possible to disable Microsoft Store too.
    Disconnect all applications from the store and the store itself

    Reverse, enable it.

  8. thank you very much, your solution is very good.:worthy:
    i just tested it and store update working fine. although restart is required to take effect

    but defender update is not working. is it possible to update defender.?
    also is there any chance any cu update might remove this registry?

    -- minimum or no chance that future update remove this
    -- defender update should work, out if you used some restrictions before, like "ForceUpdateFromMU"

  11. defender update is not working, i used cmd
    cd %ProgramFiles%\Windows Defender
    MpCmdRun.exe -SignatureUpdate
    and it throws error ERROR: Signature Update failed with hr=8024002E
    and also with defender gui definition update doesnt update.
    thats the only problem with this update blocking method.otherwise its very good for me.

    in the works for the next version is an automatic hide new updates, making hard blocks unnecessary.

    Maybe my engish isn't perfect. :) I don't want to disable Store but I want to disable Windows Update without breaking Store.
    StopWinUpdates v2.0 does the job perfectly. Thanks @BALTAGY.
     
  14. shewolf method to block updates doesnt break windows store. :)

    It is also true that one is better off being spied upon by NSA compared to being spied upon by Russia/China(given there is no choice).Reason being that USA is still a functional democracy with checks & balances while other two being not(aka you can make an online crude joke about US prez in USA without fear of disappearing).
