Create a script to disable Windows Automatically updating.....

As said above can we get a script that will disable windows updates on windows 10, 7 please. We are finding it very frustrating that we cannot control our updates and this last “Black Tuesday” I’ve had 7 machines die which i’ve had to rebuild becuase Windows 10 decided it knew better than us.

I know you can do something with the group policy but machine without a dc attached is screwed.

The GPEDIT.MSC path is “Computer Configuration\Administrative Templates\Windows Components\Windows Update.”
Then Configure Automatic Updates Then Enabled then “2. Notify for download and notify for install”

Please something has to be done. I’m sure there are alot more users wanting this feature. That way we can test and then push out on patch management when and what we want.

Hi @monster-it

We are working on it . we will update you with the script ASAP.

Thank you

I have a BDR (win10) that WILL NOT accept the GP settings you have above, it still says will download and auto install :(.

I have disabled the Windows Update service so hopefully this will stop the updates auto installing…

@monster-it, thanks for the post. I am also curious about when this update is coming. I have subscribed to this post. , @Saikiran , can you please update the post when it has been deployed for use? Thank you.

Being able to stop MS from controlling updates is the perfect dream.

Hi, not to sure the script is correct?? it adds a reg key, I wanted the “service” disabled.?

Am I missing something?

And the original script is now missing?
