    All I have done is compare the tutorial method to the procedure given in that Puretechinfo link.

    Everything in that Puretechinfo link is included in the tutorial's batch file.

    If it is possible to avoid the update given its present pending status then Reset Windows Update - TenForumsTutorials is the tool to do it.
    If Reset Windows Update - TenForumsTutorials cannot do it then I think it cannot be done.

    Stefan,

    I suggest you try
    I do not know if it will work. The update's pending status might mean that some update-related services cannot be stopped by the tutorial's batch file so the reset attempt might fail.
    But don't be worried by any error messages you see while the tutorial's batch file is running; it needs to cope with a variety of installations so it includes deleting files that might not exist on your computer.
    I would not be at all surprised if you end up having to reboot before that update warning disappears even if the tutorial's batch file has worked.
    I hope the tutorial's batch file stops that Windows 11 update. I do not believe that anything else can.

    It is definitely too late for FreeBooter's suggestion to be worth trying. And, in any case, it is merely presenting what is in the the relevant tutorial anyway.

    Windows 11 should not install automatically. It should appear as an optional update in Windows Update. There have been a few reports of it installing unexpectedly though.

    One of which is this OP.
    Win11 has been downloaded and is ready to install at the next restart.

    The easy way to stop the prompt and upgrade is to use the little In Control utility from the security guru, Steve Gibson. Here is the link to the website that contains a full description of the utility.

    That utility appears to be a tool for achieving
    and it makes no claim to be able to stop an update that has already been downloaded and is merely awaiting a reboot to start installing.

    The OP has expressed no interest in blocking restarts.
    The OP wants to block the update that is being threatened.

    All the best,

    Probably will need to let the restart happen (you can't reasonably block it forever ...) and let the upgrade to Windows 11 happen.
