How to Disable Windows 10 Updates Forever

Setting up your Wi-Fi as Metered connection or Choosing “Defer feature updates” from Windows Updates > Advanced Options does not work because Microsoft will keep pushing some updates which could be nagging and cause interruptions at work. If you are a webmaster running websites, operating network or maintaining servers where PCs have to be kept running 24×7, these updates can slow down your systems and their pop-ups to restart your PC can be irritating, time consuming and may cost you money if your system goes down even for few minutes to install Windows updates. So you can disable these updates altogether and relieve yourself from troubles.



The method is very simple. Just follow these steps:

• Go to Start > Windows Administrative Tool > Services > Windows Update > Properties > Startup type: Disabled

Also stop this service completely by clicking on “Stop” under “Service Status:”

*You can also use Run and following command “services.msc” or Cortona to access “Services” easily

This will disable the updates. Now to make it permanent do this:

• Services > Windows Update > Recovery. For First failure, Second failure and Subsequent failures choose “Take No Action” and also in “Reset fail count after:” enter 1000 days or anything you want.

This will permanently disable Windows updates.

To restore the Windows update service do this: Services > Startup Type: Automatic or Manual and Service Status: Start. Also in Recovery choose “Restart the Service” for First failure, Second Failure and Subsequent failures and set “Reset fail count after: 1 days”.

This will turn on Windows update service.

Note that disabling updates permanently will result in not receiving latest security updates and may put your computer at risk.
