    This fullscreen update notification pop-up


    I'm not even sure what to call this "Updates are available" pop-up. Is this a toast notificaiton?

    I had my windows 10 beaten down into submission, all configured without the controversal or obtrusive features, but after installing some of the latest Serving Stack & Cumulative Update packages, some stuff must have reverted because I'm seeing this annoying pop-up for the first time.

    How do I disable it without having leave Windows Update Service entirely disabled?

    In Settings, turn off notifications for the item or select it to adjust specifics.

    ... I'm seeing this annoying pop-up for the first time...
    I have never seen a full-screen notification like that. I would suspect malware and would scan with AdwCleaner.

    Edit: Probably because I'm not on Pro and haven't played around with windows update in gpedit. It may well be a legit MS message, see this thread...
