Windows 10 offers less UI control over the updating behavior of the operating system than previous versions of Windows. There is no option to turn off Windows Updates using the Control Panel or Settings app in Windows 10, it checks for updates automatically and install any updates they find, whether user like it or not. If user want control over the update process he can disable the Windows Update service. This requires to open the Services manager, locate the service and change its startup parameter and status. User would then have to enable the service again whenever want the operating system to check for updates.
Windows Update Blocker will help user to completely disable or enable Automatic Updates on its Windows system, with just a click of the button. This utility is portable, which means that users are no longer required to go through the installation process and no leftovers will remain on the HDD after its removal. If user place the program file to an external data device, user make it possible to take Windows Update Blocker everywhere with him and use it on any computer user come in contact with, who has things configured just right, and does not want to take the chance that an update might mess up their system.
