    Windows Update Service Properties not working


    Hello everyone

    Hello everyone.
    I was trying to find a solution to the common propblem of disabling auto updates.

    I used this method

    windows 10 windows update keeps turning it self back on after i turn - Microsoft Community

    where I created a user in the Log On tab.
    It works fine two weeks now. But today I wanted to update an app from the Windows store.
    It said that when I want to restart I should check the Local System Account.
    The problem is that now the Windows Update Service Propertis tab is unclickable. It opens but I can't click anything.

    Is there something I can do?

    thank you all

    Try the Windows Update Troubleshooter (e.g. Settings search Trouble)

    Note the result. If that doesn't help:

    Try Tweaking.com's free, cautious repair tool. (easy to find)

    Observe the initial steps.
    Select just options related to services and Windows upate.

    For reference:

    and
    Windows Update Minitool (free, easy to find).
    - handy.

    Wow, the Tweaking tool solved it!
    That's got to be one the rare occasions I got a solution so fast and it worked the first time.
    Thank you!

    Now all I got to find out is a reliable solution to turn off auto updates without this happening again.
    (Windows are on a tablet/notebook with little space available and autoupdates fill the disk space and mess everything up)

    Check it's reversible...

    If you have Pro you have a lot more control.
