    Windows 10 1703
       28 Feb 2018 #171

    Hello,

    Thank you for this tutorial--I used wushowhide several months ago to block FCU as it was giving me problems in several games. I am currently on 1703 and have had problems with the latest cumulative update for 1703 (KB4074592). I made a thread about my issues in the BSOD forums here: Random BSODs/Crashes after Latest Cumulative updates (1703). - Windows 10 Forums

    I have confirmed that this update is what is causing my problems--whenever I uninstall the update, my issues go away. However, W10 immediately pushes the update again after I uninstall it. The weird part is, this update is not showing up in wushowhide. Every other update that was pushed around the same time is showing up, but not this one.

    Is there a reason why one update might not show up in wushowhide? Is there anything else I can do to block this update on windows 10 home edition?

    Thank you.

    Hello Declio, :)

    If you like, you might see if you could use the "Windows 10 Update Assistant" to update to the latest 1709 version.

    Thanks for your reply,

    However, my intent is to not upgrade to 1709--that's why i'm using wushowhide in the first place. It was just curious to me that this particular cumulative update did not show up in the list for wushowhide. It's almost as if microsoft designed this particular update to get around the wushowhide tool. I was just wondering if anyone else had experience with updates not showing up as "hideable" in the wushowhide tool.

    My test machine (System Two below) has system images I can restore to run any version of Windows 10 from 1507 up to 1709. When restoring the older images (so I can provide support answers here) I use wushowhide to prevent it updating itself. This is something I do regularly (every week or so) so I probably have more experience than most :)

    My experience is that Features Updates (upgrades to the next version of Windows) behave differently from all other types of updates. Once windows update has checked for updates, found 'Features update for Windows 10, version 1709' and started the download it is then too late to hide it, even if it is still listed in wushowhide. Hiding it does not stop a download that's already begun. My technique is to have 'metered connection' turned on so that a download cannot start, giving me the opportunity to hide 1709 before the download can start.

    I have not however seen any case where an available update (Features or Cumulative) has not shown up in wushowhide.


    Edit: I have just restored my test machine's 1703 image and uninstalled KB4074592. You are right, it doesn't show in wushowhide. There is a very good reason for that, it is no longer the latest cumulative update!

    On 22nd February it was superseded by KB4077528, whether that has fixed the issues you had with KB4074592 is something you'll have to test for yourself.

    Hi Brink, Thank you for this. Windows Update installed KB4100347 twice on this pc, and both times I had problems
    on startup with the spinning circle spinning for far too long, now I have been able to hide the update, and do not have to keep uninstalling it only for Windows Update to install it again.

    Hello @ethel,

    I'm glad it was able to help. Yeah, KB4100347 was recently updated by Microsoft and re-released to Windows Update on the 13th.

    Hi Shawn, @Brink

    I do need your expertise in the following scenario:
    I have Windows 10 Pro and following OPTION ONE of your tutorial I have enabled the GPO to "Notify before downloading and installing any updates".

    Let’s suppose that I get a notification that there are a couple of updates to be installed (i.e. not via a manual check for updates).
    WU, honoring the GPO, waits for my permission to proceed with download and update.

    So, I decide to hide one of the updates. I use the "wushowhide.diagcab", before providing WU the permission to proceed with download, and hide one of the offered updates.

    At this time, the only available option in WU is “Download”.
    Since there is no “Check for updates” button to run, so the system understands that one of the offered updates is hidden and not download it, I tried to force a scan via "UsoClient StartScan" from an elevated command prompt. The WU shows that it does rescan, but the hidden update was offered immediately after completion of the scan.
    I also tried to reboot, but again no dice…the update is there.

    If I press the “Download” button in WU, the recently hidden update will be downloaded and installed.

    Any idea, on how to run a script to force the functionality of the “Check for updates” button, so WU understands that one of the offered update is hidden and skip it?

    Intriguing ehhh?

    Hello Dimitri,

    I suppose resetting Windows Update will clear it.

    Be sure to reapply this policy right after though since resetting Windows Update will also reset all Windows Update group policies back to default as well.

    Good idea...The bad thing is though, that the reset will clear all history! But I guess that's life...you win some, you lose some

    Take care mate and many Thanks!
