    Only for english, in Italian language is necessary modify this line: ver | find /i "Version 10">nul 2>nul
    In: ver | find /i "Versione 10">nul 2>nul

    Otherwise get this message:
    Code:
    ============================================================
    This script is only designed for Windows 10...
    Press any key to exit...
    ============================================================

    Sorry, but I'm afraid to ruin my OS, so I will not use this script. I will wait to registry tweak.

    Here the registry :
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\WindowsUpdate\UX

    You need to change IsConvergedUpdateStackEnabled to 0. But it didn't changed. There is an error.

    If you read through his code, you will find the registry tweak... Also this may not even be the GA build. What are you afraid of
    ruining your OS for?

    Surely if 'ruining' the OS was a big priority, you wouldn't want to block updates at all?

    OK. This script disables the automatic check for updates and the automatic downloading of it in the background without user info BUT if we manually check for updates, Windows Updates starts automatically downloading all the updates found. Still better than nothing.

    If you don't want to use the script then you go to settings / Network and internet / WiFi / Advanced Options / Set your internet connection as a Metered Connection

    You can cheek for updates and it wont DL them I have data restrictions and this works perfectly for me

    This only works for a WiFi Adapter there is no option for Ethernet
