    First I'm using Windows 10 1511 Enterprise.
    My question wasn't how to stop updates. I want updates and I install them regularly.
    Windows 10 Update Assistant is a program that installs itself in C:\Windows10Upgrade
    and puts a blue icon on the Desktop.
    How to stop that program from downloading and installing?
    Then install the updates as you should have notice Windows 10 Update Assistant helps keep all Windows 10 systems secure and to provide the latest features and improvements, the Windows 10 Update Assistant downloads and starts the installation of the latest version of Windows 10. The Windows 10 Update Assistant will be deployed to Windows 10 PCs that have not yet had the latest update installed.

    Note This tool does not support Enterprise editions.

    I don't want to upgrade Windows. I want 1511.

    I know newer versions are better, but there is something that changed.
    I use a program called Wheather Clock that replaces the standard clock.
    Attachment 174382

    After 1511 the notifications icon was moved after the clock in the task bar. Wheather clock is not working that way. Development of this app stopped long ago.
    I just want to stop Windows 10 Update Assistant to stop installing itself.

    I found out windows update KB4023814 is the culprit. It installs Windows 10 Update Assistant.

    Is there a way to remove KB4023814? It is not visible in Programs and Features -> Installed Updates

    Thanks @Bree, i have forget to add that as always, these new update settings are exclusive to Windows 10 Professional, Enterprise, and Education editions. You might not see these options on Windows 10 Home edition.
    I have it blocked for 365 days using Group Policy in Win Pro 64 Bit 15063..

    Hi @Josey Wales

    I'm thinking maybe Windows 10 Home edition could use registry to delay feature updates up to 365 days. I don't have Windows 10 Home edition to test this if you have one you could delay feature updates up to 365 days from Group Policy and use RegFromApp monitor the Registry changes made by the Group Policy you have set and apply those registry changes to Windows 10 Home edition to found out if feature updates can be delayed.

    Obviously this situation started on 18.12.2017 and again on 26.01.2018 when Microsoft pushed the updates KB4023814 and KB4023057.

    http://winveg.com/win/kb4023814-kb40...n-26-jan-2018/
    [Some versions of Windows 10 display a notification to install the latest version]

    So I found a workaround.

    This update keeps a copy in C:\WINDOWS\UpdateAssistant from where it installs itself in C:\Windows10Upgrade Also two tasks are created in Task Scheduler: \Microsoft\Windows\UpdateOrchestrator\UpdateAssistant which activates on logon, system reboot, etc. , \Microsoft\Windows\UpdateOrchestrator\UpdateAssistantCalendarRun which activates every 3 days at 10:30 AM.

    1. Uninstal regularly through the control panel "Upgrade Advisor to Windows 10"
    2. Delete the folder C:\WINDOWS\UpdateAssistant
    3. Delete tasks in Task Scheduler \Microsoft\Windows\UpdateOrchestrator\UpdateAssistant and
    \Microsoft\Windows\UpdateOrchestrator\UpdateAssistantCalendarRun

    I got 4023814 today too and I rebooted the pc ( but not because of the update ) and when It went back on I found the damn popup. After searching a bit tried your solution and at least it didnt trigger again after rebooting , hopefully it doesnt tomorrow either at the scheduled time ( disabled the tasks instead of purely deleting them just in case.

    Did you have any issues with the workaround or all good ? the way they tried to force the update was kinda dirty but I guess they cant try this anymore if it works

    Since posting this workaround and doing these steps no issues at all. After all when there are no tasks to reinstall the program and no setup program there is nothing unexpected that can happen.

    I agree this a very dirty and persistent from Microsoft. I have the right to choose. I understand the threads I'm exposed to but I'm willing to take the risk. I'll use 1511 for a while. When the time comes I'll upgrade . But not now.
