    To add, at some point back a few versions there was mentioned that some updates can't be stopped, are sufficiently critical they need to be applied "no matter what".

    And some updates, generally hotfixes of a security nature, cannot be stopped using the metered connection trick.

    As already stated, employing these methods, and any others, to avoid updates simply builds up the water behind the dam. At some point you need to open the flood gates to avoid problems.

    I changed the defer times in the registry for updates and can now delay updates for 60 to 90 days. I still let WU run by un-pausing it once I'm ready to update. I know this requires knowing what the updates are, but at least it's under my control. And I keep multiple system image backups and data backups in case anything goes awry.

    This does a super job of letting you know what is out there without doing the update or anything else, unless you want it to.
