    Just do not despair my friend. Do not despair when complaints or questions come up and you can't reproduce. People do mess with their systems somehow or get chopped isos then when an error shows up apparently your program/work is the culprit. If you can't reproduce, accept it and move on.

    Point of this comment is when someone despairs he can stop making a great work such as yours. This would be such a pity. o_O

    I'm sure something happen prevented him from editing this service, also not sure if he follow what i said carefully

    I got one report similar in majorgeeks and he admit that he used another tool before mine

    Checking it via TeamViewer might show what's going on if he agree

    But anyway i'm sure my tool only deny the system not the user

    The work and the service of @BALTAGY is excellent, go ahead with the Stopwinupdates program.

    They are right, we are all really thankful for this tool, we do not worry about automatic forced updates anymore, we can install manually whenever we want and even create disk images prior to update in case something borks the system afterwards. Not to mention being able to rely on Defender (because lately some AV solutions tend to act strange on Windows) and being able to update your store apps.

    Thank you so much @BALTAGY !!!! <3

    I've just downloaded and will give it a go on a Laptop with a clean Win10 install.
    Many thanks for your hard work and for sharing it with us.

    Hi Baltagy - I have run StopWinUpdates on several laptops with the latest windows 10 updates installed. When I attempt to re-activate windows updates, I am prompted with the WindowsUpdate screen however it is blank. This has happened on several of the laptops and a couple of desktops however re-running the app with the enable options does not fix the blank WindowsUpdate screen. How can I fix this? BTW thanks for helping us put a stop to automatic updates.

    Did you restart the system after enabling the update ?

    Can you check if you can start "Update Orchestrator Service" ?

    What I did was run a script as Admin per below - could disabling Windows Updates with that script then runing your tool have caused this behaviour? Thanks again


    reg add "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WindowsUpdate\Auto Update" /v AUOptions /t REG_DWORD /d 1 /f

    sc config wuauserv start= disabled
    sc config BITS start= delayed-auto
    sc config cryptsvc start= auto
    net start bits
    net start cryptsvc
    net stop wuauserv

    No, something else removed admins permissions from this registry "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\UsoSvc"

    Use PowerRun to give admins permissions again, then after making sure everything works fine you can use StopWinUpdates
