In this post, you will learn how to disable Windows Update in Windows 10 with Registry settings.
I also posted a little Power Shell script that allows you to quickly switch between the five (hidden) automatic update options.
Because Windows 10 Home doesn’t support Group Policy, these settings can’t be used for this Windows edition.
Thus, you can use the procedures described here only with Windows 10 Pro and Windows 10 Enterprise.
When I attempt to run the above command, I receive the following error in the Error SYSPRP Package Microsoft. This package will not function properly in the sysprep image.
Error SYSPRP Failed to remove apps for the current user: 0x80073cf2.
I added the values Scheduled Install Day and Scheduled Install Time to options 2 (Notify for download and notify for install) and 3 (Auto download and notify for install) because the Group Policy Editor does the same when you select these settings. Note that the script always deletes all previous automatic update settings including those that you configured with the Group Policy Editor.
