Wu10Man v4.2.0

Wu10Man is a free, portable tool to prevent Windows 10 updates and declutter Windows 10.

Features as described by the author:

Pausing Updates

A few months ago, Windows added a pause feature to some of the business license of Windows 10. Recently they added the ability to pause updates as well, but the UI only allows you to go out a few weeks. I added a screen that allows for a longer pause scenario. This isn't adding new functionality to Windows, only using the functionality that is built in. This feature will only work correctly on those versions of Windows that already support Pause/Defer.

BETA - Declutter

Windows 10 comes with a lot of clutter. There's the random stuff that they install that aren't particularly necessary, and then there's the 3rd party apps that Windows tries to include. There's plenty of apps and scripts to remove a bunch of these, but I wanted to add it here as well so that I had a single solution.

This is still sort of in BETA, so definitely use with added caution.

Legacy

With any application, somethings things just are no longer necessary. With that, there comes some depricated parts of this application as well. These parts aren't really supported any more, as much as this application has support.

Blocking URLs

There are also a number of URLs that have been identified as being use by Windows Update. That list is included in the app config file so you can alter it if need be. You can set which URLs to block individually or as a group. This updates the hosts file at C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc.

Windows Defender likes to block this which is rather annoying. Also, it's not the best way to actually block Windows updates so I've decided that this goes into the Legacy box unless it turns out to be something that people really really like.

Group Policy

If you have Windows 10 Home, you don't have access to the Group Policy Editor, but you can still set it via the registry. This application will make those updates for you, because who can remember where those settings are. This setting should be sufficient to block most automatic updates, but with some security updates, Microsoft will push those down regardless of these settings.

Group Policy Options:

Enable Automatic Updates: Allows updates to function as normal.
Disable Automatic Updates: Disables automatic updates.
Notify of Download and Installation: Provides notifications for download and install. Should function similar to older version of Windows that had this option.
Automatic Download, Notify of Installation: Will automatically download updates, but provide notification before installation.

Additional Info

System Updates

Warning! This program makes changes to your Registry and alters system files. Make sure you have set a System Restore Point before using this software.

Admin Access

This application does need administrative access as it is trying to write to the registry, alter services, and change the hosts file. As a result, some anti-virus software may also pick this up as potentially hostile.
