  • Hi, 

    Even through we could disable Windows Update service in Service console, but there is a Windows build-in task in Task Scheduler, it will auto check Window udpate every 22 hours. So it will activate Window Update and bring it to auto after update service was disabled by us. From this point, there is no official way to disable Window Update function permanently.

    What we could do is pausing Update up to 35 days through Settings\Update & Security\Windows Update\Advanced options\Pause Updates. Or defer Windows Feature Updates up to 180 days through Settings\Update & Security\Windows Update\Advanced options\Defer Feature Updates. But both of them only apply to Windows 10 Professional, Enterprise and Education.

  • Hi,

    The task can't be deleted or disabled by any user account, that is why I say we can't disable Windows update permanently.

  • Your answer was clearly not the solution to the issue. We want to GET RID of the update for whatever reason. Your kind "it is not possible" is not an answer. Thanks for understanding.
