    Just install Windows XP and get it over with. That will get you real close to your desire of 20 years ago.

    If you could still get drivers for it, and if it could use at least 32GB of RAM (x64 also), I think most of the Windows users would switch back to XP.

    My question was. I believe, polite. This is what I see- am I missing something?

    Even if the process is suspended, it is still running, thus using resources, mostly RAM in this case. The process takes at least the same amount of RAM as is it's size, so pointing out, that it takes 0MB, has to be joking.

    I prefer to kill the beast that lays the process, instead.


    For example, you can see that my Microsoft Edge isn't using anything.

    Noninvasive hello and welcome to tenforums ,
    Advanced options in your 2nd screenshot lets me pause updates for 35 days. I'm assuming at day 30 with 5 days remaining, I can again extend it to 35 days.

    I've just started doing this a few days ago because I got tired of M$ shoving preview updates up my "grass".

    And an additional bonus of pausing updates is that my PC is no longer blocked from going to sleep because of MoUSO Core Worker Process (MoUsoCoreWorker.exe) which is related to Window Updates - a nuisance issue which also causes problem for many others.

    I think the OP wants to stop any and all updates from MS for any reason whatsoever unless he/she gives the manual OK to each and every one individually.

    Tall order, as someone said earlier.

    That's why I tongue-in-cheek suggested a massive backwards migration to the turn of the century and Windows XP.

    Barring that, maybe a nice Linux Distro, or maybe a nice Mac (), or if something more basic is required, maybe an abacus.

    Is that legal, I don't think that's legal. Stopping the Annoying Forced Updates-beavis__butthead_-_breaking_the_law.jpg

    Just to let everyone know... I've left the services.msc as depicted in my screenshot, but also opted for Winaero Tweaker which has given me this fine result:Stopping the Annoying Forced Updates-2021-03-13-11_05_50-settings.jpg
    @steve108 That may be a preferred alternative to the hassle of checking in every 30 days. Thanks for the pleasantrees:

    I don't know about that part, it's not a problem here.

    For anyone who attempts to use the tweaker, I did have to set the Wine Tweaker to block updates TWICE before it took effect (that was two restarts). Not sure why the setting reverted the first time, but it's been fine since.
