    Thanks for the link, I wonder if I have inspired someone or they have found out the way like I did. :)

    " I opened regedit.exe and located: HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Schedule\TaskCache\Tree\Update Orchestrator\Scheduled Scan and backed up that key, then deleted and reboot."

    That did the job, WU does not run in the background while pc boots and no errors or side-effects to report.
    Thank you all.

    Should not change ownership or modify system file . . ..

    UH-OH!!! I just saw your post.
    Today, I was attempting to do something in the WinSxS Folder, and changed its "Owner" to "Administrator", but have been unable to make it revert to "TrustedInstaller".
    Do you think that will cause a problem?

    Thanks, Chuck

    I directly copied some of your code to use in my script, so yes. I was already inspired, but you showed me the way of instead of disabling tasks in a script, disable the related files instead so the tasks can't run. Far easier and far more reliable to implement and to be able to exactly reverse the changes, leaving no trace that any change ever took place, except for the event log of failed tasks. The chance of an update installing a new update forcer file and/or task is high; the difference is that the task will run soon if it hasn't already, before the dll or whatever, runs on it's own with no trigger, but the trigger from the task is more likely to fail if part of the waasmedic subsystem is still mostly disabled, giving me time to update the script with no ill effects. As time goes by, each failed forced update task makes me smile. I'm now truly free to update when I deem fit and hide the ones I don't want. That is, as long as I keep track of this exe/dll shell game, for example: 1803 has added waasmedic components ( specifically, MSFT removed one file and replaced it with 1 to 3 others depending on your build) , so now the list of update forcers including 1803 and earlier is: UsoClient.exe, WaaSMedic.exe(removed in 1803, now WaaSMedic uses only dll's, still disabled in script if it exists), WaasMedicSvc.dll, WaaSMedicPS.dll, WaaSAssessment.dll, and SIHClient.exe, Windows10UpgraderApp.exe (uninstall it with script), and whatever file is in X:\Windows\UpdateAssistantV2 that I delete and remove the folder which starts the whole Windows 10 Upgrade installer process shenanigans. I only delete files and folders when no other possible solution is found, never recklessly.
    The script is a concept that's working better than I'd dreamed when I first started this, considering it's easily adaptable to all the changes Windows 10 is going through.
