    In Windows 10 v1607, how do I manage this option completely through the group policies and the registry entries?

    Thanks

    Bye
    I use in my main autoit script (tool) these functions

    ;----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Func _set_Microsoft_Update_ON ( )
    ;
    Local $_ServiceManager , $_NewUpdateService
    ;
    $_ServiceManager = ObjCreate ("Microsoft.Update.ServiceManager" , @ComputerName)
    $_ServiceManager.ClientApplicationID = "My App"
    $_NewUpdateService = $_ServiceManager.AddService2 ("7971f918-a847-4430-9279-4a52d1efe18d" , 7 ,"" )
    ;
    EndFunc ;~ _set_Microsoft_Update_ON.
    ;----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    ;----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Func _set_Microsoft_Update_OFF ( )
    ;
    Local $_ServiceManager , $_NewUpdateService
    ;
    $_ServiceManager = ObjCreate ("Microsoft.Update.ServiceManager" , @ComputerName)
    $_ServiceManager.ClientApplicationID = "My App"
    $_NewUpdateService = $_ServiceManager.RemoveService("7971f918-a847-4430-9279-4a52d1efe18d")
    ;
    EndFunc ;~ _set_Microsoft_Update_OFF.
    ;----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    ;----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Func _is_Microsoft_Update_ON ( )
    ;
    Local $_tampon = RegRead ( "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WindowsUpdate\Services" , "DefaultService" )
    ;
    If $_tampon = "7971f918-a847-4430-9279-4a52d1efe18d" Then
    Return True
    Else
    Return False
    EndIf
    ;
    EndFunc ;~ _is_Microsoft_Update_ON.
    ;----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    must be compiled in autoit in both versions x86 and x64 because we have an HKLM there
    or just translate them in your favorite programming/scripting language.

    Since I updated to Windows 1703 this option keeps enabling by itself. I noticed it installed a bunch of Office updates, so I disabled it and removed the updates. Few hours later it downloaded updates again, I went in to check and the option was back on. Microsoft is ****ing as over harder and harder.

    EDIT: Actually I just noticed that every time it checks for updates (auto or manual) the setting auto enables itself. Test it for yourself. Disable the setting, check for updates and go back to see if it's enabled.
    when I use above functions Microsoft update did not auto-turn on again, tested on more computers.

    the functions works on xp ,vista,7,8.x,10

    I can provide compiled scripts (.exe), but this is a trust issue.

    Hi guniu and thanks for feedback. I don't know if you can hide and select as "unwanted" these updates as you could do in Windows 8 'cause Microsoft keeps on changing the cards on the table, as usual...

    Yes: I can fully confirm it and add that it flags to true before it completes the searching for updates (so I think Windows resets it as checked once you've pushed the button Check for new updates (I've italian version so I translated it).

    I'm afraid the registry keys for this uses unique ID numbers per PC, so it doesn't seem feasible.

    It would be best to us Process Monitor to get your specific registry entries for this setting.

    You would basically run Process Monitor, make the setting change in Settings, and look to see what Process Monitor reports has changed for this setting.

    Brink,

    I'm a bit baffled by your comment about the Registry key being unique on each computer.

    I have just checked 4 Ver 1709 computers and each one of them uses the same Registry key
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WindowsUpdate\Services\7971f918-a847-4430-9279-4a52d1efe18d
    {Value name - RegisteredWithAU, Value data - 1 for On or 0 for Off}

    I experimented with setting & unsetting the checkbox at Settings, Windows update, Advanced options, Give me updates for other Microsoft products when I update Windows.
    The Registry key responded correctly each time.

    Isn't it the same Registry key for us all?

    Hello Denis,

    I'm seeing the same registry value being changed by the setting. However, if I manually change the registry value, it doesn't change the setting for me in 1803. Even after a restart.

    Do you see the same?
