  1. How to stop automatic windows updates


    After a reset and restore to 1803, I was able to update windows 1803; however, I was not able to install a newer version. How do I prevent my computer from trying to install 1903? It hangs up my computer for more then 4 hours and fails after 91% complete. I don't have much disk space, so if I don't clean up the disk, I can prevent it that way; but it keeps sending me error messages and interrupting what I'm doing. I don't want to change my current version and set up.

    :)

    Vista Automatic Updating Error

    Resolution Suggestion:

    # To resolve this problem, make sure that BITS and the Automatic Updates service are started..

    A simple solution but one that works in most circumstances!

    1. Click Start, click Run, type services.msc, and then click OK.

    2. In the list of services, right-click Automatic Updates, and then click Properties.

    3. In the Startup type list, click Automatic, and then click Apply.

    4. If Service status is set to Stopped, click Start, and then click OK.

    5. Right-click Background Intelligent Transfer Service, and then click Properties.

    6. In the Startup type list, click Manual, and then click Apply.

    7. If Service status is set to Stopped, click Start, and then click OK.
