    How do you do that? This has been discussed many many times - searching tenforums is a great way to find information.

    How I did it:
    Sledgehammer (free)
    There are other 3rd party tools out there that claim to too.

    Tutorials:
    Enable or Disable Windows Update Automatic Updates in Windows 10
    Using CMD script and VBScript to control Windows Update

    Not necessarily.
    About a week ago, a member left a visitor message on my profile page, saying that he could not find my tutorial after searching for it.

    You can also toy with Windows, disabling DHCP service breaks Windows Updates.

    Block svchost.exe in the firewall, TCP via port 80 will do.

    Create a nonexistent symlink:
    Code:
    rd "%WINDIR%\SoftwareDistribution\Download" /s /q
    mklink /d "%WINDIR%\SoftwareDistribution\Download" "X:\Download"

    I'm afraid the nonexistent symlink will make it impossible to install updates even manually.

    Some people aren't very good at specifying searches. For example, one poster hoped to find something useful by searching tenforums for

    audio

    Did you know?... a great way of finding tutorials here is a Google (e.g.) search like this:

    stop updates script tutorial site:tenforums.com

    Try it.. you're famous!

    Hi,
    Don't have to use google, duckduckgo search works just as well and without all the google crap.

    Did you happen note I carefully said 'e.g.' - i.e. the user can use what they wish?

    I post something I hope will be helpful and two members are immediately critical on a sideline note that does NOT contribute to the topic.

    Now.. please..

    SecurityXploded has a Windows Updater Disabler for both Windows 7 and Windows 10. While I know W7 WU Disabler works great, I have no experience with W10 WU Disabler, Anyone using SecurityXploded, remember this:
    its menu gives you the next available choice[s], it does not "tell" what you just chose.
