    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.

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