    Disable update


    How do I prevent the automatic update software, such as Microsoft Office or Adobe in Os 10?

    Under advanced options in update settings, you can uncheck box for updates for other MS products. For 3rd party apps, you need to turn that off in the individuall application settings (MS has no control over those).

    In this ways, We will prevent Windows Update Not a specific application such as Office.






    I would like Windows Update but not Office.

    Settings > Update & security > Windows Update > Advanced options > deselect (untick) the "Give me updates for other Microsoft products when I update Windows".

    Or, start any Office program, File > Account > Update Options > Disable Updates

    Or, through registry:

    Office 2013:
    Code:
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\software\policies\microsoft\office\15.0\common\OfficeUpdate]
    "EnableAutomaticUpdates"=dword:00000000
    Office 2016:
    Code:
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\software\policies\microsoft\office\16.0\common\OfficeUpdate]
    "EnableAutomaticUpdates"=dword:00000000
    If you want to hide the menu option to enable or disable automatic updates, add:
    Code:
    "HideEnableDisableUpdates"=dword:00000001
    Give it a try.

    And... which Adobe products?

    I deselected the "Give me updates for other Microsoft products when I update Windows".
    in Office program, File > Account > Update Options > Disable Updates Not available.

    I do not understand why you are going to these lengths when all you need to do is uncheck one checkbox in settings as said earlier?

    Have you done that, and it did not work?

    In my previous post, there's three options, choose either one but yes, you can use it all.

    Option 2, the update button missing from Word?

    Try to open other Office program.

    Option 3, please type the right value or copy/paste from my previous post, looks like a slight typo there. Set 00000000 to show menu option to enable or disable automatic updates but with the missing update button, this do nothing. Just use EnableAutomaticUpdates, it's enough to disable the auto update.
