    You can try the script by Disassembler0. I can't post links yet so you have to find it yourself. Make sure to look into the presets and set it as you wish.
     
  2. Disabling Win 10 updates thru any means is not a good idea. In my opinion the last line is to chose option Semi-Annual channel (not targeted), because it's tested and polished for organizations. More like a "definite Service Pack".

    I strongly disagree. I do manual updates with windows 10 and to do that I have to disable windows updates.

    Not true.
    If you run my Sledgehammer script windows 10 will never update again for the rest of your life until you run it again and check for updates or uninstall it.

    Why are you so terribly afraid of these updates, enhancements, improvements? Is this some kind of a viral phobia or a new venereal disease that should be terribly afraid?
    And are You really sure the Dr Sldge Hammer helps and protects from this horrible disaster?

    I'm 100% sure. Never been so sure of anything in my life. You have complete control of anything offered by windows update including easily preventing the installation of unwanted drivers. nothing can get past it, ever. I've been tweaking this script constantly for years specifically to make windows 10 update work as close to windows 7's manual update as possible. If you run the script and never check for updates again, no version of windows 10 you run it on will ever update again, including Home, until you die or they stop making Windows 10. and you can check for updates anytime you want, or you can uninstall it to reverse all changes and go back to the floodgates of shoving updates down your throat again at any time. It comes with a lifetime guarantee. Sledgehammer - Windows 10 Update Control

    Pause updates until 2050:

    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\WindowsUpdate\UX\Settings]
    "PauseFeatureUpdatesStartTime"="2015-01-01T12:00:00Z"
    "PauseQualityUpdatesStartTime"="2015-01-01T12:00:00Z"
    "PauseUpdatesExpiryTime"="2050-01-01T12:00:00Z"
    "PauseFeatureUpdatesEndTime"="2050-01-01T12:00:00Z"
    "PauseQualityUpdatesEndTime"="2050-01-01T12:00:00Z"
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\WindowsUpdate\UpdatePolicy\Settings]
    "PausedQualityStatus"=dword:00000001
    "PausedFeatureStatus"=dword:00000001

    Resume updates again:

    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\WindowsUpdate\UX\Settings]
    "PauseFeatureUpdatesStartTime"=-
    "PauseQualityUpdatesStartTime"=-
    "PauseUpdatesExpiryTime"=-
    "PauseFeatureUpdatesEndTime"=-
    "PauseQualityUpdatesEndTime"=-
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\WindowsUpdate\UpdatePolicy\Settings]
    "PausedQualityStatus"=-
    "PausedFeatureStatus"=-

    Save text as .reg file and run it
    Then restart pc

    Was there an update, that did not cause any serious problems? I can not recall a single one, unlike in Windows 7/8, where it happened like once a year.

    As to the topic, just make sure, that Windows thinks, that you are not connected, then it does not bother checking for updates. Windows is dumb and it will totally believe it. :p

    Lately only 1903 RP and SLOW ring updates caused/had install problems, but when the next publicly released update was released, all was solved.

    The general public won't ever see any of these rp/slow or seeker updates.

    Sorry if this has been posted before, didn't read all 3 pages.

    I use two registry files to 'toggle' updates enabled or disabled and it has worked well for me. When disabled, even if you check for updates, it will fail and just give a "We'll try again later" type message.

    Disabled:
    Code:
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate]
    "DoNotConnectToWindowsUpdateInternetLocations"=dword:00000001
    "DisableWindowsUpdateAccess"=dword:00000001
    
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate\AU]
    "UseWUServer"=dword:00000001
    
    
    Enabled:
    Code:
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate]
    "DoNotConnectToWindowsUpdateInternetLocations"=-
    "DisableWindowsUpdateAccess"=-
    
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate\AU]
    "UseWUServer"=-

    Disables Windows Update service in such way that it immediately stops itself when attempting to start. Based on findings done by me and mspaintmsi.
