PSA: Microsoft removing ability to disable Windows Update in Windows 10 Pro 1903.

First I just want to say my company does not use Windows Update directly to receive updates, we rely on our Systems Managment Applicance for this (Quest KACE). We have auto updates disabled in GPO and a registry key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate DisableWindowsUpdateAccess 1 which disabled windows from connecting to windows update in any capacity so our appliance can step in and we have more granualer controls.

In GPO MS allows auto updates to be disabled which is still working properly. For 1903, Microsoft spent a lot of time thinking about Windows Update and in doing so appears to have modified Windows to completely ignore that registry key. Even when the key is set to 1 pressing the 'Check for updates' button still downloads updates from WU.

We are a company that does not have an SA so cannot use Windows 10 Enterprise. I feel like this is yet another example of the gradual and continued squeeze from MS to force companies over to service aggrements and Windows Enterprise.

PSA: When you hear "CPU X won't be supported in older Windows", it just means Microsoft won't be pushing newest microcode on the corresponding Windows Update.

And while certainly a problem^^what ^^is ^^microcode^(^?), it can even be totally worked around.

Putting aside that sometimes newest BIOS versions could help in this regard, you can use VMware CPU Microcode Update Driver to load just any release you want. Even as far as getting latest Kaby Lake firmware on Windows XP, I'd presume.

Blobs can be found here for AMD and here for Intel.

Just drop them in the same folder of the tool and run install.bat as admin.

EDIT: microsoft is going to play this really, really dirty.

EDIT2: this also affect AMD's 7-gen cpus (or directly all excavator cores altogether?)

Stopping Microsoft from screwing up your computer with an update. (Windows 10)

With the issues plaguing Windows 10 and its updates recently

Cumulative Update KB4482887: Causing issues in game performance

Windows 10 October 2018 1809: Wiping contents of users Documents folder

They said the next major update was going to hand control of updates back to users. Then they expanded on this by stating it was for nonpriority updates. Now though the latest update causes people computers to boot loop. I have seen plenty of people with this issue asking for help and all anybody says is "Use your recovery disc" but the thing is, it shouldn't be happening. Microsoft should know this is happening before releasing updates.

So I thought I would tell people how to disable the updates till you chose to install them.

I however suck at explaining things clearly so I found an article to do it for me. I also assumed the Windows and Windows 10 pages would remove this as the usually freak out when I say I block updates. I provided a link to the article as well as posted the options.

https://www.forbes.com/sites/gordonkelly/2015/08/26/windows-10-how-to-stop-forced-updates/

By Gordon Kelly

Option 1: Stop The Windows Update Service

  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 β€˜Startup Type’ (under the β€˜General’ tab) change it to β€˜Disabled’

  4. Restart

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

Option 2: Setup A Metered Connection

To save bandwidth Microsoft confirms the operating system will only automatically download and install updates it classifies as β€˜Priority’.

While Microsoft doesn’t reveal its method of classification, this does cut down more frivolous updates which typically include new drivers and software features – both of which have already caused stability problems.

  1. Open the Settings app (Win + I)

  2. Open the β€˜Network & Internet’ section

  3. Open β€˜Wi-Fi’ and click β€˜Advanced Options’

  4. Toggle β€˜Set as metered connection’ to β€˜On’

If your PC uses an Ethernet cable to connect to the Internet the Metered Connection option will be disabled as it works with Wi-Fi connections only.

Option 3: Group Policy Editor

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 automa

How Microsoft arrogance can screw up it's costumers with automatic windows update

Honestly, the person that thought that having automatic updates that restart your PC automatically should be put to some long and painful torture.

Thanks to this idiotic feature I lost 1h of very productive coding. I'm happily doing my work and after a while the mechanic calls me to go pick my car. I lock my PC and spent about 20min fetching my car. When I return the horror ensues - idiotic windows decides it's OK to restart my PC because of some crappy updates and Visual Studio just complies and closes everything without saving anything!!!

I just feel rage at the morons that make decisions like this!

It's not that I'm not aware of this BS "feature". Before crapp... er... anniversary update I had the option to ask before updating but after the update I had to set those stupid active hours. I work at different schedules and that crap makes me set a period of 12h max! Just what were they thinking?!?!?

I tried to change the behavior with Group Policies but alas! Some other idiot thought it would be cool to also get rid of it!!!!

Eventually I found a fix that involves changing some registry keys at [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate\AU]

"NoAutoUpdate"=dword:00000000

"AUOptions"=dword:00000002

"ScheduledInstallDay"=dword:00000000

"ScheduledInstallTime"=dword:00000003

Doing this I can once again have the windows update behave like before but damn! Why in the name of Zeus can't they just have advanced options for power users to avoid issues like this? I just feel frustrated about the hole ordeal!

TL;DR: MS is stupid with automatic updates, made me loser 1h of productive work, has no easy way to fix the moronic behavior.

EDIT: Words and line breaks

If you have trouble getting Windows 10 through your school or the student estores, try getting it via Microsoft's Azure website.

My account with onthehub didnt work in getting a free copy of windows 10, but i was able to get student access to the Microsoft Azure site.

Here are the steps I took to get Windows 10 on my computer.

NOTE: This is free, legal, and through the Microsoft Azure Education site. You can technically skip to step 3 if you need to create your account for azure first, but I did it in this way so you know what to look for.

  1. login to https://portal.azure.com/#home with my regular microsoft outlook email. It ends in outlook.com.
  2. on the search bar within the webpage, there will be a drop down with "recent services." Head on over to the education section OR click this link -> (https://portal.azure.com/#blade/Microsoft_Azure_Education/EducationMenuBlade/overview)
  3. you will see a couple of software already available to you, and near the top, you should also see something about getting student access. Click that and it will lead you to (https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/free/students/)
  4. select activate now... all you need to do is verify your student status with a student email address.
  5. Head back to the link posted in number 2, and you should see a longer list of available products... a few of them are windows 10. Some of them say different versions, but a couple of the versions may give you the same microsoft windows key.

I did not have to enter any credit card info. And i am using windows 10 now.

Look for a version of the windows 10 education... im not sure what ALL the differences are, but i think this version is the best. Dont get the "N" version unless you know you need that one.

Final edit: gone

EDIT: 20 Redditors showed interest so I took those handles and put them into random.org's "List Randomizer" to generate a numbered list in random order, then used random.org's main page to generate a random number between 1 and 20.

Nice little machine but it does have one annoying flaw: battery charge is SLOW. Decent battery life when charged up but you'll want to be sure it has a few hours on the charger before you go to use it, and even when plugged in it depletes the battery faster than it charges.

Drop those comments and random.org will do its thing in a day or so.

EDIT: BTW if I see this on Craigslist I WILL name and shame you on this forum. It's happened before.

This free computer rehabilitated and given by a dedicated and proud progressive. It's a new day in the USA!
