How do I prevent windows from installing updates when I shut down?

Occasional Visitor

Hi all,

I need to know how to prevent Windows from installing updates.

The latest update conflicts with Wacom hardware/software rendering my tools useless and at this point I'm booting up, uninstalling the last update, and restarting EVERY TIME. It's too time consuming not to mention outright annoying.

Does anyone know how to do this? I'm not able to find anything.

Out of curiosity, which Windows version?

I'm moving this question to the Windows 10 space for better visibility. (Hopefully, the question is about Windows 10!)

You can stop automatic update download.

For Windows 10 Go to "Service" from "Computer Management" and find "Windows Update" then double click on it and select "Disable"!

Thank You!!!
