  1. totally wrong, even if set to disabled, at the next reboot of the PC, this service starts automatically and switches manually ignoring the previous disabled

    • You probably have a process control manager. In our country, this did not happen in the tests, moreover, it blocked everything that management means updatefixes may. Update Settings, Updates History and Updates.

  2. After setting the service to STOP and DISABLED, select the Recovery Tab and then select “Take No Action” on the First and Second failure choices. Select Apply and OK on the way out. It won't restart again at computer restart. I also do the same (stop and disable) to Background Intelligent Transfer Service, Connected User Experiences and Telemetry Service, and Windows Update Service. I only update manually (once a month or so - sometimes once every few months or so) and these services need to be turned back on (enabled and started) to update manually

      • stealth,
        After over a year with no issues with forced downloads from MS, some of my computers are now being hit with them starting about a week ago. Seems like it's GWX all over again. I am still able to maintain version 1703 as I do not want to upgrade to 1709 (will wait for later versions). I am still able to defeat the forced downloads, but now have to spend time two or three times a day to prevent them from downloading by using the tips stated above and ending/disabling certain tasks in Task Scheduler and Services daily. Even with doing those steps, the tasks WILL re-enable and the services WILL restart daily, whether or not the computers have been shut down for the day or just put to sleep. I have 15 computers at my business all running 10 Creators and some PRO's. All of them are being hit every day now, even my PRO versions. Fortunately, my employees have been instructed to end the task in Task Manager which gives me time to do the other terminations stated above. Just takes a minute or so per computer. Sorry that my tips above do not stop this intrusion permanently. Don't know what's after 10, but we can hope.

        • I am not sure this will work 100% but I have had the tasks re-enabling windows update and now harassing me about being pretty far out of date, I have disabled the windows update (all of them) related tasks, and service only to find it on again as well.

          I think I have found a fix at least for now. I edited the service name under HKLM \System\ CurrentControlSet \ Services \ I renamed wuauserv to wuauservx and now the service is incapable of starting (at least currently), and if I want I can always name it back to get some buggy updates.

        • Aqui has been using Symantec (I install it and my tempo) for the use of this software and Internet applications. The tenth form of GWX is a porumen of the internet, and it is about usuário a programma.

  3. Some of the words in this article that are supposed to be separated by spaces are instead squished together to make broken English, so this article is hard to understand.

    • I'm sorry for the inconvenience. I will try to solve this problem in the future. The article is translated automatically and some elements should not have been translated.

  4. I'm using Windows 10 Home 1803. By default, the startup type of this UsoSvc is Manual. When I choose Disabled and hit OK or APPLY, a warning pops up and says Access is Denied. I can stop the service but that's it. If I can't change the startup type to Disabled, this service will start again at the next reboot. Same thing happens with WaaSMedicSvc.

  5. On the other hand, it would be urgent to learn to express oneself in an understandable language, because at the moment it looks like a bad translation done with Google Translation…

  6. Hello, I realize this article is a bit outdated, however I see you are still getting comments on it so I figured I'd provide an update for everyone. If you have Windows 10 version 1709 or above (I believe), you cannot stop automatically updates. You can disable the service and it's attempted restarts all you want. You can configure group policy editor, for both Pro and Home (although home is disabled by default - download “Policy Plus” to gain access to group policies in Windows 10 Home). It all doesn't matter. Why? Because Microsoft added several new Tasks to Task Scheduler that will start all of the update services regardless of how you try to disable them. Microsoft has a dedicated service called the "Windows Medic ”that is built to specifically check and re-enable update orchestrator if it's disabled anywhere. And no, you can't disable the task or delete it in Task Scheduler or the registry. All relevant tasks and registry keys are locked. Even the old trick of setting your network connection to "metered" doesn't work anymore - as this used to shut down update down. No more. They will download even if you are on a metered connection. The only success people have had is by downloading a Microsoft Sysinternals program called PSExec which will allow you to run a TrustedInstaller security context. You then need to change the permissions on the appropriate registry keys, and finally disable them. I've heard 3 things about this method. 1. That it works. 2. That it is dangerous and could really screw up your registry (I'm talking about screwing around with registry file permissions). and 3. That Microsoft has already patched this and won't work even if you know what you are doing.

    It really sucks because computers DO NOT need to be constantly updated with new features, etc. If you are having problems, or want new functionality, sure, but it's a big reason why people's computers run about 50-75% slower than the day they bought it because of all of the cumulative updates and leftovers bloating the file system. If you ask Microsoft why they have the right to forcefully rape your computer, despite the fact that you purchased the OS, they will tell you that Windows is a "service", not an application. Which is bad news for the future. Expect to have an entirely cloud based operating system that simply runs through an Internet browser as the way of the future. Everything will be completely dumbed down so it can run on both cell phones and PCs, and you will have little to no control of the OS. Don't die installIn independently developed programs, everything will come in the form of an official "app". And just like Microsoft current apps, they will have about 2 configurable options per program and that will be it. Like a Macintosh.

  7. If you disable it with a tool you won't be able to re-enable it without reinstallhing Windows again.

    Wu10man can be disabled windows updateyes, but you have been warned!

  8. finally, I got some people with the same problems.

    the thing is -

    even when you disable the windows update orchestrator, the windows update doctor and the windows update - services… at some point, also after rebooting, they come back.

    and I don't know the frakk WHY!

    anyone out there, who knows what service or program reactivates those services ?!

    really really big problem.
