Disable Windows 7 / Vista From Downloading Automatic Updates

By Nakodari on Nov 02 2008 24 Comments

Do you want to manually download the updates from Microsoft and want to disable Windows 7 / Vista from downloading updates automatically? I feel really annoyed to see Windows downloading automatic updates while I am working on the internet, the biggest problem arises when I need more bandwidth and Windows Update is sucking half of it. In this case, I have to disable my Windows from downloading automatic updates.

 

To disable Windows 7 / Vista from downloading automatic updates, follow these simple steps.

Open Start menu, right-click on Computer and click Properties. This will open System dialog box that will show basic information about your computer. On the left sidebar, under See also heading, you will find Windows Update. Clicking it will bring you to the Windows Update dialog box, now on the left sidebar click on Change Settings. You will now see a window that will look like this,

windows update

You will notice that Windows has enabled option as default, to disable it, simply select Never check for updates and you are done.

Note: Microsoft recommends that you must keep your windows up-to-date in order to remain secure. And I recommend the same, my computer is always up-to-date, this is one reason I never get attacked by any kind of virus.

Got any question, suggestion, or feedback? Feel free to leave a comment.

    Microsoft will start to send out crappy updates to kill Windows 7 off soon. Its better to choose updates after they have been cleared by those who are dumb enough to let Microsoft kill their system so they will be forced to buy Windows 8. So be prepared.
