How to finally stop Windows 10 updates and upgrades?

I like updates! I like new free updates!
But it’s really frustrating to me, that Windows 10 breaks my work and reboots my PC to install their update/upgrades.
Unfortunately, there is no way to fully stop updating using the Windows interface.
The old hacks are not working since March 2018.

This why I created a small utility StopUpdates10 that gets back control over updates to me.

    This! If possible can you stop big blue screen advising the current version of Windows 10 is stopping support, but allow other updates if necessary. For whatever reason, my current computer can’t run 1709 (like Windows on some old Macbook Pros).

  • Dmitrys

    This is End-of-Service screen.
    It is blocked by StopUpdates10 1.0.6.
    Let me know if you still have this issue with version 10.0.6.

    At last,,, a simple bit of software that will stop those never ending updates and that screen as Ozvic described warning you that their support of Windows 1607 will end in April. When in fact, they’ve stated it’ll be Jan 2023. I’ve had that 1709 Creators update try to load soooo many times and fail. Even wushohide doesn’t do the trick. It’s become just like a virus where I can’t use my laptop for hours and hours. So,,, well done and a big hip hip hooray to you Dmitrys.
    Of course,,, if I see updates like security patches, Defender updates, then I’ll open the gates,,, for a while. I’m really glad I found your software and look forward to a bit of peace from Micro-get on everyone’s nerves-soft.
