    I tried like this things :
    1--I disable Win10 Home in Services ---- still updating win10 home
    2--I tried to set Metered connection ---- still updating win10 home

    and I tried many different things, still updating win10 home.

    I you know any 3rd party software which will disable win10 home permanently, I will try that software.

    The only guaranteed way to stop Windows Update, is to disconnect the computer from the internet. That means Physically !

    Even 10 pro can only delay updates although there are methods to delay further with third party
    10 home is no doubt a sad joke of a version

    You always reinstall a system image before the upgrade to 10 happened if you have one
    Or clean install 7 or 8 if you didn't make a system image

    If this is a new computer that came with 10 home the pro upgrade will get you a little closer easier but for

    type services.msc in search, scroll down to Windows Update, right click and select properties, disable... then in settings, update and security, set to metered connection.

    This is the best solution I found for Windows 10 Home users to take control of Windows Updates. I applied this about a month a go and have not had and trouble since.
