    Nice.
    Now, could you explain how it works in depth and the difference with Painter7's solution?

    TIA

    GUI, virus free, not install any service (Does not work on background), disables windows update service and prevents uncontrolled changes, command line options ...

    From my point of view, a useless application.
    With powershell, to enable windows update use : set-service wuauserv -StartupType Automatic -status running
    and for disable : Stop-Service wuauserv; Set-Service wuauserv -StartupType disabled
    And use Windows Update MiniTool.

    I have to apologize : this is NOT a useless application as MS introduced Windows 10 16299.15.

    May I ask what is the purpose of this app?
    What it can offer that "services.msc" can't? What it does besides the service manipulation procedure?
    If nothing else, then I just not sure that anybody need a standalone app to disable the service.
    In that case, I would agree with rpo. The Windows Update Minitool and "services.msc" are two essential tools which should be enough in a general case.

    Nobody argues, but in this single case, it is a cheap work.

    Ah I see there are some differences.
    I agree, this one is not really some nifty stuff, so no "pro" for that. Just wanted to mention that other Tools are interessting. - Nothing more or less. completly neutral.

    if you work with Tihiy you have to be reasonable. ;)

    Would you care to share those links? Thanks. I'd really like to know what /P does exactly.

    Edit: I see that /p /e works to enable.
    The command line is messed up. Wub.exe /d /p works fine, but you can't use /e to enable it after you've used /d /p.

    I was gonna say, I figured out that wub /-p /e works. So now I see that /p /e works. Good.

    Are you sure? I did some testing : to enable the service after it is disabled by Wub /d /p, just execute wub /e; the /p parameter is ignored.
    When you use the gui, you don't have the possibility to tick "Protect Service Settings" when choosing "Enable Service".
