Windows 10: Shutup10 disables updates in Windows. Alternatives? Solved

    Shutup10 disables updates in Windows. Alternatives?

    I've been using Shutup10 for a while now but I noticed that it blocks Windows from updating for a few months now. Are there any other tools you would recommend that stop microsoft from spying on you but don't cripple the updates?

    Just using the recommended settings doesn't touch update settings.

    I'm not seeing the point of running something like ShutUp10. I sure as hell wouldn't be installing it if it was going to mess with my ability to update. Remove it and see if that restores your update ability. If it does, we just saved you from spending a lot of money on tin foil hats!

    What's the last updates that did install ?
    Look at the uninstall an update section too
    Post screen shots might be the easiest.

    Once I uninstalled shutup10 (set the settings back to default) the updates work fine.
