Windows 10 Automatic Updates

I wanted to see if anyone else had this issue. I had my wi-fi internet connection set as “metered” which effectively stopped Windows 10 from automatically updating. That way I could choose which updates to install and when. But recently my laptop has been updating Windows automatically - sometimes taking as long as two hours, even with the connection still set to “metered”. After the last update two days ago, I couldn’t even log in to Windows. Fortunately a hard restart seems to have cured the problem.

Has anyone else had this issue? Is there another way to turn off automatic updates?

Thanks.

That seems like a key feature that is no longer working. I'm at work so don't have time right now to really look into this but at the bottom of the link below, it says something about using a group policy to stop it. Perhaps that will work around it?

It is Microsoft subtle way of reminding you who the real boss is and that you do not own your own f***g computer...

Yeah, can't argue with that. However, I hope that is not the case with this feature because it has financial implications. Of course not to M$, but the consumer. Don't get me started

Google is my friend. Two suggested methods:
(1)
As central as it is to the core of Windows 10, Windows Update is actually just another Windows process so it can be stopped with these simple steps:
1.Open the Run command (Win + R), in it type: services.msc and press enter
2.From the Services list which appears find the Windows Update service and open it

3.In ‘Startup Type’ (under the ‘General’ tab) change it to ‘Disabled’
4.Restart

To re-enable Windows Update simply repeat these four steps, but change the Startup Type to ‘Automatic’

(2)
This is a halfway house: the group policy editor will notify you about new updates without automatically installing them (how previous generations of Windows always worked) - though again security updates will still install automatically.

Note: Windows 10 Home users have to sit this one out, it is only for Windows 10 Education, Pro and Enterprise editions.
1.Open the Run command (Win + R), in it type: gpedit.msc and press enter
2.Navigate to: Computer Configuration -> Administrative Templates -> Windows Components -> Windows Update
3.Open this and change the Configure Automatic Updates setting to ‘2 - Notify for download and notify for install’
4.Open the Settings app (Win + I) and navigate to -> Update and Security -> Windows Updates. Click ‘Check for updates’ which applies the new configuration setting
5.Restart

EDIT: Link in post #2 looks like it already covered these two and more.

Good info. You should have put a link for that into "let me google that for you"

Sorry - I should have mentioned I have done Google searches, and since I already had my connection set to "metered" (as described in the link in the second post above), and have the home edition of Windows, none of the suggestions seem to work or be available. I'll keep looking -- I was hoping someone else might be having the same issue or had found a cure.

By the way, I'm locked out again this morning.

I hope you don't think I was giving you grief.

That's just a funny link that everyone can find a use for.
