    Re: stopping windows auto update


    It took a lot of work to get to this point. and I would like to share it. This is on a Dell Inspiron 15-3541 laptop, OS Win 10 Home 32bit.

    This is what I did to keep the Windows auto updates in Win 10 Home 32bit from updating. I can't totally stop Windows from letting me know that there are updates that need to be downloaded but I can stop the auto downloads. I just have to put up with the notests.

    Warning: This is a friendly reminder that editing the Registry is risky, and it can cause so much damage to Windows that if you don't do it correctly you will have to wipe the HD clean and reinstall Windows. It's recommended to make a full backup of your PC and the Registry before proceeding. I had to learn this lesson the hard way in the school of hard knocks.


    1st I added the following line to the Windows registry.

    To permanently disable Windows Update using the Registry, use these steps:

    1. Open Start.

    2. Search for regedit and select the top result to launch the
    experience.

    3. Navigate to the following path:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows

    4. Right-click the Windows (folder) key, select New, and then click on Key.

    5. Name the new key WindowsUpdate and press Enter.

    6. Right-click the newly created key, select New, and click on
    Key.

    7. Name the new key AU and press Enter.

    8. Right-click on the right side, select New, and click on DWORD
    (32-bit) Value.

    9. Name the new key NoAutoUpdate and press Enter.

    10.Double-click the newly created key and change its value from
    0 to 1.

    The 1st part in the Windows registry stops most of the updates and downloads. It doesn't stop the notifications that the downloads are available.
    ---------
    I keep getting 1 update notice on a blue background bellow:

    Important Updates are Pending

    The newest Windows feature update is ready to install. We need you to kick it off. With new features and apps. This one could take a little longer then other updates.

    Ready? Restart now. Not ready? Pick a time that works for you.

    [Pick a time] [Remind me later] [Restart now]

    Also in this notest the laptop freezes up. Nothing works until I click on [remind me later]. In the shutdown or signout there is the following:

    Update and shutdown

    Shutdown

    Update and restart

    The following info in the link bellow will del the (Update, shutdown) and fix the restart buttons until the Important Updates are Pending message popes up again. Then the info in the link has to be run again.

    The nine files that are updated all have to do with the Auto-Updater itself.
    The article lists them all. No big deal.

    I run auto-update anyway, so BRING ON THE NEW UPDATES !!!
    I have yet to experience any problems from MS updates on my XP network.

    That's what the auto setting will do since you're over the 1333 mark it jumps to the next step which isn't listed or officially supported I assume by that ram.

    At this point though I would suggest dropping the multi one step or .5 so that we can get something stable and possibly take the heat issue out of the picture for now.
