    Hi.
    I am running Windows 10 Enterprise LTSB activated by KMS with Windows Toolkit 2.5.3.
    So far, so good - the OS runs fine.
    I have two questions though:
    1. Can the Windows Update be controlled in some way so that it doesn't install anything that it wants to, and allows me to choose just what I want installed?
    2. Following on from the first point, is it just a matter of time until Micro$oft sends an unseen update to disable my activation method? Can this be protected against?
    Thanks in advance for your wisdom! :worthy:

    Go to control panel, Administrative tools- services- look for windows update, RT click properties, stop, and set disabled.

    Thanks for the thanks.:biggrin:

    I have a similar question. I am using Windows 10 Home and would like to stop Windows Updates. I've tried O&O ShutUp 10, and many registry tweaks. None of them work on Home. I figure the only way to stop them is with windows firewall. I read windows update uses port 80 and 443. When I blocked them, I totally lost the internet. Is there any way to block the updates and not lose internet access?

    I hope you don't mind me hijacking your thread. It looked like your question was answered.

    Try: Run Command Prompt (Admin) and the command line

    To disable
    Code:
    sc config wuauserv start=disabled
    To enable
    Code:
    sc config wuauserv start=auto
    [Note]
    wuauserv is Windows Update service
