Prevent Windows from Automatically doing Updates

Don’t like your Windows performs automatically download, install updates and restart by itself?

Click Start and type in: ‘gpedit.msc‘.

Go to: Local Computer Policy -» Computer Configuration -» Administrative Templates -» Windows Components -» Windows Update -» Configure Automatic Updates.

Set from ‘Not Configured’ to: ‘Enabled‘.

Configure automatic updating: ‘2 – Notify for download and notify for install‘.

Click ‘Apply‘ then ‘OK‘.
