    It might require Group Policy Editor, which is absent from Home.
    I have not really checked those, but most people say they work.
    I use my own method on Home (disabling auto-checking for updates).
    Code:
    takeown /f "%WINDIR%\System32\UsoClient.exe" /a
    icacls "%WINDIR%\System32\UsoClient.exe" /inheritance:r /grant:r Administrators:F /c
    icacls "%WINDIR%\System32\UsoClient.exe" /remove "Administrators"

    Into CMD as admin. If you do not have English version, "Administrators" might need to be in your language.

    In an elevated Command Prompt, run the following commands one by one:

    takeown /f "%WINDIR%\System32\UsoClient.exe" /a

    icacls "%WINDIR%\System32\UsoClient.exe" /inheritance:r /remove "Administrators" "Authenticated Users" "Users" "System"

    Alternatively, run "Disable hijackers" downloaded from Microsoft OneDrive - Access files anywhere. Create docs with free Office Online.

    I have long since disabled UsoClient.exe, but Windows Updates says "Last checked: Yesterday, 18:25" although I did not click on "Check for updates" yesterday.
    The screenshot below was taken a few minutes ago (12-11-2018).

    "0x41303" denotes "The task has not yet run".
    "0x80070005" denotes "Access is denied".

    The task did not run, but something else initiated the scan. Some AVs perform vulnerability scan and when they detect an outdated Windows, they update it. There are also Windows Defender and store updates.

    You could deny access to all users, but then even manual scan would fail and you would have to download and install all updates manually. There are also many other work-arounds to break WU, like:

    Code:
    Remove SoftwareDistribution folder and create a nonexistent symlink, updates will always fail
    taskkill /im TiWorker.exe /f
    net stop wuauserv /y
    rd "%WINDIR%\SoftwareDistribution" /s /q
    mklink /d "%WINDIR%\SoftwareDistribution" "X:\SoftwareDistribution"
    Or simply block svchost.exe in the firewall, but that will also prevent updating certificates!

    Do you mean your above codes will not cause the following?
