Windows 10: Windows updates even thought disabled. Solved

  1.    19 Jul 2017 #1

    Windows updates even thought disabled.


    First off I run Deepfreeze on my 3 computers here at work. About 2 weeks ago I disabled this and installed the newest windows updates. After a couple reboots to make sure there were no more updates I disabled windows updates again in services, rebooted, turned deepfreeze back on and rebooted again. After a few days when I went to turn computers off they started installing another update. Once it shut down I booted back up and windows update was still disabled. After a couple days of this I finally disabled deepfreeze again and let computer install the update (updates still shows disabled in services). Now today it is trying to install yet another update but updates are still disabled in services and shows not running. What's up with this? How can I stop this?

    I think you're asking 'how can I make sure Windows update is disabled?'

    No, I have it disabled the same way I always have by disabling the service. Haven't had a problem at all until this last big update. I will look into the other options on that link though. Something told me not to do that update and I didn't listen.

    Also on this computer I'm on (did not update with the other two) when I go to settings, windows updates, and click search for updates it immediately comes back with "There were some problems installing updates, but we'll try again later. If you keep seeing this and want to search the web or contact support for information, this may help: (0x80070422)" which is what it should do being disabled, but on the other to (ones I updated) I can go to services and verify windows update service is stopped and disabled but click on search for updates and it searches and tries to install updates but windows update service is still showing stopped and disabled. I am trying the group policy option now and will see if this works.

    The group policy change seems to have fixed this. Thanks for the assistance.
