    StopWinUpdates v1.9-P2P

    Description: StopWinUpdates is app to enable or disable Windows and Store Automatic Updates.StopWinUpdates is portable, but it acts and looks like an installer which we found confusing. Double-click on the executable and choose your options. By default, if you want to disable Windows Update, that’s checked by default. You will see prompts, again, that makes it appear the program is installing, but it’s just applying your changes. StopWinUpdates will exit when completed and you’ll want to reboot for the changes to apply. If you change your mind, rerun the app and make any changes you need and restart again.

    Additionally, there are registry hacks to block updates on Windows 7 and 8.1.

    Overall, StopWinUpdates is another excellent app to disable or enable Windows and Store Automatic Updates if you don’t mind the installer style way that StopWinUpdates works.

    Whats New:

    • Added option Set Windows Defender (Security) to Update Every 6 hours (Win8.1/Win10)
    • Added option Disable or Enable Automatic Device Driver Installation
    • Now you will be asked to restart after you enable or disable any option
    • Removed Disable Windows Update Service since it’s not needed ( If you used it from older version, you need to enable it from same older version or you can keep using this version if you want) since the point is to disable windows updates without effecting Store/Defender/Edge
    • Now disabling update will auto hide Windows Update page in settings so it will now open Windows Defender (Security) instead and settings wont auto close anymore in Win10 1703 or newer (This option not present in older versions) as a workground for old Win10 Builds you can search for the settings you want or you can create a shortcut like ms-settings:windowsdefender
    • Added Disable or Enable Auto Downloading Language Related Components (Win10)
    Release Names: StopWinUpdates.v1.9-P2P

    It's handy in theory but now in newer Windows builds you can set your Ethernet connection as a metered connection which will disable updates without hacking up your OS files.
