    Disabled Windows Update service. Win10 still turned it back on.


    How do I disable Windows Update permanently?

    I disabled and stopped the Windows Update service under Computer Management a long time ago.

    Recently, I see microsoft is trying to shove 1709 down my throat, and has turned Windows Update service back on.
    I disabled and stopped it again, and Windows turned it on yet again.

    My Update history is very short, and I thought I had Windows Update turned off for good.
    But I guess I was wrong.

    It's clearly been enabled for quite some time.

    Try
    Enable or Disable Windows Update Automatic Updates in Windows 10 Windows Update Activation Tutorials

    But note the end of life date for 1607. Further, Defender updates are normally delivered by Windows update.
