    completely disable automatic updates for Windows Update.
    Does it mean that automatic checks for updates will also be disabled?

    Yes, but you will still be able to manually check for updates.

    Option 1 would be good since you have Windows 10 Pro.

    You could still do that if you like to help make sure, but usually disabling automatic updates will be enough to be able to hide what you don't want before installing the other available updates.

    I've used the BrinkFix® scripts successfully to block automatic maintenance and automatic updates on both an older Win10/1607 machine and on a more recent Win10/1703 (Creator's) one. However, on the 1703 computer, the scripts do not prevent automatic updates to the Windows Defender Security Suite. That machine is out in a lab and not always on, but if left on overnight it will show the most recent Defender updates next time I look. I can shut off the Wi-Fi, but unless I'm missing something there doesn't seem to be a way to prevent these specific updates. Security updates aren't really a concern, but the fact that they happen, unbidden, makes me nervous. Any way to keep our friends in Redmond at bay?

    Hello Jim, :)

    Setting the network connection to be metered may be able to stop them from automatically downloading and installing.

    Thanks, Brink; I had considered doing that, but hoped that this might have come up and been resolved in as elegant a manner as the initial scripts provided. Thanks!
