The newest Windows features update is here popup - How to turn off

Brass Contributor



Our users are starting to see these popups on their devices:




Our devices are managed with SCCM.
Why are these popups suddenly appearing?

Our users cannot perform this upgrade themselves.

Not it's very persistent and it cannot be snoozed anymore.


It is incredibly intrusive and unacceptable that Microsoft does this.


We have policies in place to get updates from SCCM but this somehow still goes through.

Can this be turned off via GPO or reg key?

We had similar issues here and the way around this is to disable dual scan along with GPO preventing the lookup on MS Update services completely. That was the recommended way by MS after I had a ticket open with them to prevent clients downloading any not on the internal WSUS approved updates from MS update services.
