    Then what's your problem?
    You derogate from the tools much more vigorously than I talk about them.
    If all I wanted to do was to derogate from the tools, then why would I have used them myself for so many months?
    You have no right to impose a burden on members.
    Last time I checked, neither did you. You have voiced an opinion about the tools, and I have voiced mine─based on my own personal experience with them.
    "Your corporation" = "the corporation you work for", which you have advertised.
    Do you mean to tell me that every software developer who develops software by using technologies available from Microsoft must necessarily always be working for Microsoft Corporation? If you have nothing more useful to add, then I suggest that you move on.

    You have added nothing useful. Just move on.

    Next time when you find something wrong with the tools, take a screenshot and post it here as evidence.
    Posting a girl will get you nowhere.

    Hmm disabling Edge in Task Scheduler didn't work! I have only 2 entries in Task Scheduler Library of these 4:
    • MicrosoftEdgeUpdateTaskMachineCore
    • MicrosoftEdgeUpdateTaskMachineUA
    • MicrosoftEdgeUpdateTaskUserS-1-5-21.Core
    • MicrosoftEdgeUpdateTaskUserS-1-5-21.UA
    Attachment 325720

    And disabling programs by renaming their files isn't ideal! It can produce Event Viewer errors, or maybe it could corrupt system, or cause some problems dunno... Also I Am not sure about denying all access permissions of programs.
    you also have to disable or delete all the "Edge update" services (edgeupdate, edgeupdatem & MicrosoftEdgeElevationService) from services.msc. only after disabling all the MS Edge update services, then you can delete the Edge update tasks and the MicrosoftEdgeUpdate.exe file.

    SC config "edgeupdate" start=demand

    I ran the above command and disabled the "EdgeUpdate" tasks. My Edge has never been updated.

    On my Windows 10 Home, ever since I have set my ethernet connection to metered, Windows Update hasn't automatically installed even a single update without my consent. Not once.
    I set connection to metered, then uninstalled Sledgehammer and Windows didn't install any updates so far!

    Also no new drivers were installed so far! I put these values into registry first
    (not actual syntax I used, I added them manually):
    dword:ExcludeWUDriversInQualityUpdate 1
    dword:SearchOrderConfig 0
    dword:DenyUnspecified 1
    Thank you for suggestion... I try to avoid all 3rd party programs if possible!

    Only problem: I forget to restart, after applying regedit entries to disable automatic driver updates, when Sledgehammer was already disabled. Although no new drivers were installed except 3 - dated to this date. They were drivers of a 3rd party program, however in that case: I've no idea if and how could Sledgehammer block automatic drivers updates of a 3rd party program! Unless it used Windows Update to download them, which is unlikely IMHO and since I set connection to metered, before uninstalling Sledgehammer... I did not have these 3 drivers before I disabled Sledgehammer - I have program which shows newly installed drivers and their date, that's how I know. Peculiar at best...

    One example of drivers that belong to a 3rd party program and that can be automatically updated by this same 3rd party program (if automatic updates are set to enabled in its settings) is Logitech G HUB, as the current version of it uses some drivers that were last updated by it about two months and a half ago. But I never tried Sledgehammer, so your guess is as good as mine. Maybe it was just a coincidence and maybe Sledgehammer was unrelated to what's caused your 3rd party program to update its own drivers automatically. Controlling updates is normally not needed outside an organization or business/production environment where WSUS and PowerShell will let you do just that. Windows 10 Home can have issues with automatic updates being installed on some hardware, but blocking Windows Update merely for the sake of avoiding issues that you might one day bump into compares to being afraid to walk in the woods at night because if a billiards table falls from a tree, you're dead...

    Not sure now, if it works as one update says: pending restart!
    2021-02 Cumulative Update for .NET Framework 3.5 and 4.8 for Windows 10, version 20H2 for x64 (KB4601050)

    So it seems it was automatically downloaded and is ready for install on restart!

    Had you hidden it via Windows Update MiniTool or a similar tool?
