    I use VirtualBox virtual drives with a Lite customized version of Windows 10 to create portable programs - this batch file makes it easier to disable the updates I do NOT need. Thanks.

    What does blocking "Build Upgrades" do? Does this prevent Feature Updates, or Cumulative Updates?

    Only feature upgrades i.e. windows setup - It's more of a safeguard in case it slips through.
