    Today I received two updates with automatic updates disabled by the script.


    Received and installed (KB3124263)


    I also received but failed (KB890830) I then checked manually and installed.


    All is done with with automatic updates disabled by the script.


    Is there a bug in the script or is it MS that is the bug :eek:

    I am done with this cat and mouse game. Microsoft wins this "forced updates up our arse" war. :mad:

    Microsoft can get away with it because Linux geek developers consider themselves to be too elite to produce any distribution which is worthwhile. Their bloated egos come in between delivering a superb Linux version which installs and runs like a dream.
    Take ANY I mean ANY latest distribution and try to install under Nvidia GTX 9XX series and up. The damn thing doesn't even boot without "nomodeset" flag.

    That is why Microsoft can get away with anything.

    Yup. Those drivers can only be installed after booting with nomodeset argument and running loads of commands.

    Just Set Your Connection as Metered (Metered connection prevents automatic download of Windows Updates).

    You need to take ownership of the registry key beforehand - youtube.com/watch?v=M1l5ifYKefg


    reg add "HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\NetworkList\DefaultMediaCost" /v "3G" /t REG_DWORD /d "2" /f
    reg add "HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\NetworkList\DefaultMediaCost" /v "4G" /t REG_DWORD /d "2" /f
    reg add "HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\NetworkList\DefaultMediaCost" /v "Default" /t REG_DWORD /d "2" /f
    reg add "HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\NetworkList\DefaultMediaCost" /v "Ethernet" /t REG_DWORD /d "2" /f
    reg add "HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\NetworkList\DefaultMediaCost" /v "WiFi" /t REG_DWORD /d "2" /f

    nice but im not on wifi.

    i tried some scripts i found and the ideas mentioned before but none has worked. does anyone knows a way of disabling windows update on windows 10? not tools, but scripts to do so. I would like to disable windows update, disable the notifications about it and turn it on only when I want to. if possible, any advice?

    You have to take ownership of the registry key mentioned in the post few posts back and change value of all network devices to 2.

    If you google setacl.exe by Helge Klein, you can take full control of registry keys, and change the values in a batch file.

    Even so, the metered connection does not apply to cable connections. Changing the reg key will take effect only if I connect in an wifi internet.

    Anyway, I would like to have a script to "disable" windows update. If anyone knows, please post it..

    It works for me on 14393, but anyway, if you disable any dependency service, Windows Updates will simply fail.
    Windows will start some disabled services like Windows Update or BITS, but not needed Windows Firewall or DHCP.

    P.S.: When the connection is set to metered, you CAN NOT check for updates, otherwise they will start downloading automatically, use WUMT or install them manually.
