What's the difference between 'stop updates' and 'pause updates'?
• Stopping updates prevents downloading and installing any updates.
• It blocks the Windows update service.
• Pausing updates only block installing, not downloading, updates.
• Microsoft allows you to pause updates for limited number of days and only once.
• You can not pause updates again after resuming.

StopUpdates10 removes limitations for pausing updates:
• You can pause updates until up to 2099 year.
• You can pause and resume updates as many times as you want.
• You can set different pause date and time for Feature updates and for Quality updates.

What's the difference between Feature updates and Quality updates?
• Feature update is a new version of Windows. It is installed as an upgrade to the existing version with changing the build number.
• Feature update includes new features and updates.
• Quality update contains only cumulative updates to the existing version without new features.

How StopUpdates10 works?
1) StopUpdates10 creates the policy registry keys to block updates.
It is for Windows 7-8. Microsoft ignores these policies in the latest Windows 10 versions.
2) StopUpdates10 blocks execution of several processes used for updating, related to Windows Upgrade Assistant, Windows as a Service Medic.
3) StopUpdates10 blocks Windows Update service using an own service: Updates Guard. Also, it blocks Windows Update Medic Service ("WaasMedicSvc"), because the 'Medic' service can restore updates.

StopUpdates10 is safe to use!

StopUpdates10 does not delete files on your system, does not change permissions of 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.
