  1. Why can't I stop automatic updates?


    I've tried to disable the updates several times, I've followed all the instructions on each of the previous posts on this subject. Nothing works and I really think Microsoft is just giving a bunch of excuses and not giving anyone the real truth. I hate that every time an update happens, items are added, settings changed, security disabled and my sound is all screwed up. This is MY computer, where does MS feel they have the right to make changes to it at your will? I want to know how these updates can be turned off FOR GOOD. I will decide if I want to download an update once I know what is in it. Can someone please tell me how to make this assault on my computer stop?

    :)

    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.

    Why can't I stop automatic updates?

    laptop doesnt boot automatically

    This is what happened.

    1. Did a repair install and later disabled hibertnate in CMD.
    2. Enabled legacy option ROM in BIOS.
    3. After a few times startup ( i used the system in such mode for 5 days), changed boot option back to default.
    4. Vola!! It boots automatically to win10 without any keypress. Tested it with many starts to confirm the same.
    5. Re-enabled hibernate option using CMD and later selected Fast Startup.
    6. System booted normally, without the need for any keypress.

    I do not know exactly whether such steps resolved the problem or what else happened, hence cannot suggest above steps.

    Many thanks to all members who helped to troubleshoot problems.
