How to finally stop Windows 10 updates and upgrades

From Author: I like updates! I like new free updates!

But it's really frustrating to me, that Windows 10 breaks my work and reboots my PC to install their update/upgrades. Unfortunately, there is no way to fully stop updating using the Windows interface.

Why StopUpdates10?

Early, you can stop Windows update service to block updates. But it does not work with latest build of Windows 10. Windows 10 is able to restore Windows update quietly in the background using a special "WAAS Medic" service and some scheduled tasks.

This why I created a small utility StopUpdates10 that gets back control over updates to me.
Take control of your life and Windows updates!


Stop Windows updates.
Stop forced upgrades.
Stop annoying upgrade notifications.
Easy Undo! Click 'Restore' button to undo all changes.


StopUpdates10 does not delete files, does not change file rights or another destructive actions.
StopUpdates10 is small and easy in use.
StopUpdates10 is free of charge.

How StopUpdates10 works?

StopUpdates10 creates the policy registry keys to block updates.
This works for Windows 7-8. Microsoft skips their policy in the latest Windows 10 versions.
StopUpdates10 blocks execution of several processes used for updating, related to Windows Upgrade Assistant, Windows as a Service Medic.
StopUpdates10 blocks Windows Update service using a blocking service: Updates Guard. Also, it blocks Windows Update Medic Service ("WaasMedicSvc").

StopUpdates10 is safe to use!

StopUpdates10 does not delete files on your system, does not change permissions of the Windows registry keys or files.

Updates Guard is a system service, working in the background.

It polls an activity of Windows update service. If Updates Guard detects the starting (or changing autostart) of Windows Update service (Wuauserv"), Guard will disable it.

Default polling interval is 5 seconds. It may be customized using stopupdates10.ini file.

Updates Guard is started automatically. It takes a little bit of system resources.

You don't need to hold open the StopUpdates10 application.

Your system is automatically protected by Updates Guard.
