How to Permanently Disable Windows 10 Updates

Posted on March 20, 2018 at 2:56 pm

Disabling Windows 10 updates is not that easy, you can disable “wuauserv” service but then Windows 10 somehow will restart it automatically after some hours or days without your consent. I’ve found a free application that can help to stop Windows 10 updates permanently. It works on Windows XP, Windows 7, Windows 8\8.1 and Windows 10 Pro 64bit 1709.

Download Win Update Stop for Windows (32bit and 64bit) (1.3 MB)

Just open Win Update Stop and click the “Disable” button.

That’s all, Windows Updates will be disabled.

What if Windows Updates are re-started?

In case Windows Updates are restarted by Windows 10, you may need to use Task Scheduler to run Win Update Stop (WinUpdateStop.exe) every 1 hour with the parameter “/disableupdates”. Since Win Update Stop needs Admin privileges, you will need to check the option “Run with highest privileges” inside the “Security options” on the General tab of Task Scheduler.
