    How to Stop the Updates.......... Completely

    Good afternoon,
    How do I get the updates to stop. I want to do a COMPLETE stop of the updates.

    Does it work to boot the PC from a Windows installation medium and delete C:\Windows\System32\usoclient.exe?

    I have no idea and would never suggest such a hack. If you want to delete system files, please feel free to go ahead. But please don't ask us to sort out the consequences...

    Windows will reload essential system files, when it find those missing, during a maintenance run!
