    The Update Orchestrator service is scheduled to run periodically. You'll find its schedule in the Task Scheduler. But I think that UpdateOrchestrator is responsible for pushing updates to your pc, so you probably won't be able to totally disable it (nor should you want to).

    In the Task Scheduler, navigate to Task Scheduler Library\Microsoft\Windows\UpdateOrchestrator.

    See if you can modify its schedule. (I've never tried it.)

    Thanks...This was a Microsoft Update (1909) screw up. You can't edit that Task without downloading a utility. I used: NSUDO. It works!
