    On my LTSB 2016 install I found that /p is a toggle. /e won't enable without it, so to enable, the command is /e /p. If it's ignored when it's not needed for other versions then all the better.

    Why is it better than the Windows Embedded Update Blocker?

    I know the Windows Update Blocker, but what is the Windows Embedded Update Blocker?

    This the Windows own built in or default blocker, there is two built in blockers - one blocks new version, another blocks other updates.

    It works while dealing with the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\wuauserv register key.
    Wub /d set the value of "Start" to 4
    Wub /e set the value of "Start" to 2
    Wub /d /p set the value of "Start" to 4 and changes the register key permissions : System has only read access, hence Windows Update process is disabled ... until Windows resets the default value and permissions (which seams to be the case after rebooting the system following the February 13, 2018 patch tuesday updates.

    @rpo explained Windows Update Blocker, now let me explain Painter7's Windows Update Disabler: it doesn't work anymore.

    may:
    administrator rights command line run:
    reg add "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Device Metadata" /v "PreventDeviceMetadataFromNetwork" /t REG_DWORD /d "1" /f

    Or:
    in this article, with faster access
    stopDriverUpdate.bat:
    @echo off
    rundll32 newdev.dll, DeviceInternetSettingUi
    exit

    Correct me if I am wrong but I have to block the service as this forced update will change the partitions on my HDD making my life miserable knowing that I double boot Manjaro linux

    Right?

    The freaking update assistant is back despite being disabled in the Task Manager and by means of your blocker.

    You likely installed one of the march kb patches. Microballs is trying to include the update assistant in each kb since march. Since 1607 going EOL anyway, one shouldn't install any of the march kb.
