    Ways to block Windows 10 updates

    I'm having issues with a recent windows cumulative update. I uninstalled said update, and blocked it using wushowhide tool. However, after leaving my pc on, unattended for a few minutes, I came back to see that the pc had restarted and begun updating automatically.

    After the update finished, I viewed the update history, and confirmed that the update that was just installed was the exact one that I just blocked using wushowhide tool.

    (The update with which I am having a problem is CU KB4462919.)

    I've uninstalled the update again, and ran wushowhide tool, but this time it didn't find the update (presumably because it thinks it's already blocked).

    I'm concerned that the update will most likely reinstall again, considering that it did last time, unless I'm able to implement some better means of blocking the update.

    Any suggestions? Thanks.

    Try blocking it with Windows Update MiniTool.

    A couple of people have reported hiding that update yet finding it reinstalled, which seems odd.

    You can only block it if you can 'see' the update when you use the tool, of course.
