    I can confirm that WAU works perfectly on Windows 10 1809.
    What changes has it made to Registry so as to disable auto-updates?

    Major frustration on my cruise because Windows 10 updated TWICE while I was on the ship wifi, costing me $$. I double checked WAU Manager settings and made sure my connection was set to metered, still frigging updated. I absolutely H@TE Microsoft for forcing updates. It's my GD machine, leave me along. This will be my last Windows machine, I will eventually replace all of them with Apple I guess. My friend who is an Apple fan says they don't have to deal with stuff like this.

    @marklyn,

    If you like, you could use option 7 in the tutorial below to disable automatic updates.

    Write to Microsoft, explain to them everything you did to try to keep it from happening, send them the WiFi bill, tell them you have a lawyer who is waiting to sue them for the bill if they don't refund it.

    How? Via "Settings" or "Registry Editor"?

    The following is Registry Editor.



    The following is Settings.

    Consider Linux, freeware.

    Did that and checked the registry.

    However, if the is a setting in THEIR OS that is advertised to limit network traffic in a certain way and it fails to function and the user is harmed by it, that would seem to be actionable.

    I was reading through the EULA just a few days ago and this was one of the things that struck me

    However, there is nothing preventing one from blocking updates through the firewall - the EULA just mentions no re-engineering etc.
