    Turning off Update Notifications in GPO?


    I've been looking endlessly with no luck so hopefully someone here can give me a definitive answer. Preferably what I woud like is to completely disable the windows update center. I want it to neither automatically download, nor notify and ask to download updates to windows 10. I want all windows 10 updates to be managed by our sys admin. If that is not possible, I would like to at least disable the notifications that say windows updates are available. Even if the end user can still go in and click the download and install buttons, most of them wont know how to get there without clicking that notification. I have tried disabling the notification center in GPO and the notifications still come, they just dont sit on the task bar anymore. I have also tried "Remove access to use all windows update features" in GPO and this seems to have little to no effect at all despite it sounding like exactly what I was looking for.

    This is the notification I'm trying to get rid of.

  3. Turning Off Windows Defender Notifications in Windows 10

    thanks,I ended this drama by uninstalling Bitedefender [free edition] and come to find out that it isn't windows 10 ready so shall wait and just use windows defender in mean time and hope it's sufficient until I can either find something else or check
    back often to see if they release a version that is ready for W10

    Turning off Update Notifications in GPO?

    Hi, you might already be aware of this having searched for a solution:
    Windows Update Automatic Updates - Enable or Disable in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums
    and this
    Device Driver Automatic Installation - Turn On or Off in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums
    and
    Windows Updates for Microsoft Products - Turn On or Off in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums

    Then there are these ideas...
    Disabling downloading of Updates - Windows 10 Forums

    Hope that's of some help.

    Of course that still leaves app updates... which could be stopped by modifying the scheduled task.

    That gets rid of the notifications but the ability to go in manually and hit the check and download buttons are still there. Any way to disable that as well? I'm trying to completely disable updates. Not just automatic updates.

    For individual users you could totally fool them by modifying their hosts file so the MS servers are inaccessible.
