    Based on what you set in WAU Manager, it basically sets group policy settings for you for Windows 10 to prevent the automatic updates. Afterwards, you can use WAU Manager as a tool to manually check for and install selected updates.

    I can't remember the specific policies though.

    Does WAU Manager work on Windows 10 Home, which has no Group Policy?

    At one point I thought I had it fixed by changing the ownership and permissions of the windows\software\download folder and I think it worked for awhile but they started up again.
    I have permanently fixed the problem by disabling the following files:
    EOSNotify.exe WaaSMedic.exe WaasMedicSvc.dll WaaSMedicPS.dll WaaSAssessment.dll UsoClient.exe SIHClient.exe MusNotificationUx.exe MusNotification.exe osrss.dll CompatTelRunner.exe

    The credit goes to the commands extracted from WUMT Wrapper Script.

    Were you considering upgrading to 1903 or were there attempted upgrades that were blocked or failed?

    It does. It will manually set the policy via the registry.

    I can confirm that WAU works perfectly on Windows 10 1809.

    I wonder if it works on Windows 10 Home 1803, anyone?

    Thanks Brink!
    Am I to understand correctly that when I run this, I would now be prompted to do a Windows update when one is available?
    If so, can I keep putting it off until I'm ready or maybe not do one at all?

    If you install WU Manager and check the box to disable automatic updates, you will be able to manage and install selected updates via WU Manager instead of Windows Update.

    As far as I know, if you don't check using WAU it won't bother you at all. You decide when or if to check. Windows update hasn't said a thing to me since installing WAU. It's sleeping quietly.
