    It's not a bad idea to have two tools checking the status of Windows Update enablement, I know I used a couple of tools to ward off Windows 10 Upgrade being forced by Microsoft for many months. One tool would monitor the status and warn me when it was changed back to allowing Windows 10 upgrades, and another feature disabled this from being able to be used by Microsoft to actually follow through with the download and upgrade, then I could go in there and re-disable Windows 10 Upgrade bits once again.

    So I wouldn't rule out using more than one tool to verify Windows Updates are disabled, if one fails the other can warn you before it's too late and you are saddled with a forced update and things are broken all over again.

    You can always restore from a backup to the before Windows Update state, but that takes time, time you can save by using more than one tool to keep Microsoft in check. :)

    I just started using 10 and O&O four days ago. Yesterday when I opened O&O it notified me that settings had changed due to an update, and asked if I wanted to revert to prior settings, which I did. It would be better if the program kept the settings, and asked if you wanted to let MS Update change them.

    Unless all of this is a bug that requires the three restart fix posted earlier.

    It will be interesting what the upcoming version of Spybot Beacon will offer.

    For OP or others. Read http://forum.notebookreview.com/threads/windows-10.762434/page-488#post-10692244

    Ask Woody
    So how DO you block the upgrade to Win10 1709


    Windows Update in Windows 10 is a lost cause without intervention

    some steps are obligatory to keep the current version:
    – set connection to metered
    – set Automatic Update policy to disabled or notification
    – disable UpdateOrchestrator and WindowsUpdate schedule tasks
    – use wushowhide.diagcab or WUMT to check for updates and hide the upgrader-updates

    The program can't stop anyone or anything from changing the settings, I don't think it works that way.

    This alone stopped the upgrade, so far. ;)

    Tusen takk!

    It seems that you all have problem with Build 1703 and now 1607, but check out my previous post #15. Have you tried to disable automatic maintenance and see if this can change this behavior... How to disable Automatic Maintenance in Windows 10

    Use Program and Features or CCleaner and go to Programs section and you'll see OS Remediation service with some KB artcicle number that bypass our settings. Uninstall that and all will be fine.
