    windows automatically re-enabling Windows Update service


    I typically have the Windows Update service disabled so that i can download/install updates when i want to. However, sometime over the last month or so windows has started automatically re-enabling the Update service - I disable it... check it a few days later & it's back on again... repeat....

    Anyone else have this issue - it seems to only be occurring on one of my machines

    I keep getting error code 0x800706D9

    Re-enable Windows Firewall and then apply update.

    • Type Services on Search the Web and Windows and press enter.
    • Under Services, look for Windows Firewall.
    • Right click on Windows Firewall and select Properties.
    • Set startup to Automatic, and click Start.

    After re-enabling Windows Firewall, apply the update and check is issue persist.

  3. Win10: Microsoft pushed KB4054022 onto my system despite having Windows Update turned off

    It is quite straightforward to prime the boot-up process so that it launches a certain program. No service is required for this purpose. The automatic update can and will then do anything it likes, e.g. re-enable the Windows Update service.

    That is normal behaviour, there are bunch of critical services, which will start even when disabled.

    You can disable something, Windows Updates are dependant on, and that will break them, like:

    Disabling "Network List Service" or "Network Location Awareness" will cause this error:

    ok - thanks a lot for the info. It is odd that it only seems to be occurring on 1 of my machines & only over the last month or so. I've never noticed it happening before.

    It may be that a month or so ago that machine was updated to Creators Update (1703) while the rest are still on Anniversary Update (1607). There are some changes in the way services behave in 1703.

    This machine is still running 1511. I have other machines on 1511, 1607 and 1703 so it's a mystery *Smile
