StopUpdates10: Because upgrading to Windows 10 has become very dangerous lately, disabling updates to Microsoft's newest operating system has become a must for many who don't like adventures.
The latest proof is the Windows 10 October 2018 Update, also known as the 1809 version, released on 2 October but still released....
StopUpdates10 does a good job. Helps you turn off updates. It has a clean UI with a big "stop Windows updates" button. Just click on it and your system will stop receiving updates. So if you check for updates in Windows 10, you will see the following error:
There were some problems installing updates, but we will try again later. If you still see this topic and want to search the web or contact support for information, this can help: (0x80070422).
If you now want to re-enable Windows Updates, click the "Restore Windows Updates" button and the updates will work again.
StopUpdates10 comes with a range of tools. One of these is called Guard Updates. The small plug-in runs in the background, and stops Windows Update whenever it tries to re-activate.
In addition to regular updates, the program can also prevent installing upgrades, a very useful option especially for those who are afraid of a forced upgrade to their system.
The app also has options to completely disable Windows Update.
Needless to say, you should run the application with administrator privileges so you can do all the above changes.
