    Winaero Tweaker is not stopping Windows 10 Updates anymore.


    Windows 10 Home 1809


    I have been using Winaero Tweaker for quite some time. It is set to always block Windows 10 updates because I hate Windows 10 downloading and installing without me knowing and then sometimes - with a new major build - to be without my pc for hours.

    It worked fine untill now.
    In fact since installing Winaero Tweaker 0.16.1.0 and updating to Windows 1809

    I did both things on the same day.
    At this moment I open Winaero Tweaker and Disable Windows Update is Checked.
    I can open Windows update (which I could never do in the past when Winaero Tweaker was set this way.

    Hi, there is a very complete tutorial here including one of the 3rd party tools used mostly by Home users who don't have the controls Pro users have:
    Enable or Disable Windows Update Automatic Updates in Windows 10

    Searchable list:
    Windows 10 Tutorial Index

    Note that MS made it progressively harder to disable this. Plenty of threads on this topic if you care to search tenforums.

    Here's the tool from that tutorial for you:

    WAU Manager
    WAU Manager (Windows Automatic Updates Manager) is a fully featured replacement for the built in Windows Updating interface. This tool gives you full control of the Windows Updates, such as when and how they are installed, and has full uninstall and maintenance support for Windows updates.

    Hi. I'm using Sledgehammer 2.6.0 (final I believe) and it blocks updates properly. I'm on Windows 10 v1903 btw. It gives you the option to turn ON the Windows Update Service so you are able to download & install apps from the store (which impossible unless the service is enabled) WITHOUT Windows searching and installing updates automatically. Check it out and make sure you read the "read me" file.

    Thx to both of you.
    More suggestions always welcome.
    Saw in the WinaeroTweaker blog that others have the same problems as me so Windows succeeded in stopping it from working.
    I am looking into the options I am given here.
    At the moment I have : Slegdgehammer - WU10Man - WAU Manager. The others do not work for Windows Home - except disabling the WUpdateservice which I used in the past but was not always working
