Stopping Windows update in Windows 7

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

Even though I thought that I'd turned off the Windows update feature on Win 7, it's still seems to update, and once it does that, my system crashes.

 

 

is there any way I can completely stop all Windows updates?

 

Thank you, and Seasons Greetings….

 

Adam

When you turn it off the are links that you can click that turn it on again even anti-virus software can turn it back on when you update your AV

 

the only way i know how to do this is too turn off the windows update service.

 

Go to Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Administrative Tools and look for Services and than look for Windows Update you need to set the start up type as Disabled than do the same for Security Center

Restart windows and your good to go mate.

Your av software can only turn it back on using Security Center so if this is turned off too your OK  to run it your av software.
