How to disable Auto Updates in Windows-8 and Win 8.1 or customize (turn off, enable, stop)?


It´s simple to disable Auto Updates in Windows-8 and Windows-8.1



To disable Auto Updates in Windows-8 or customize, please press the key combination [Win-Logo]+[R], then simply enter the command control.exe /name Microsoft.WindowsUpdate (... See Image-1 Arrow-2),

Likewise, you can open the Windows-8 Update (Image-1) via the Windows 7 System "Control Panel"
See: ... open Control Panel in Windows-8 and 8.1! Please click in the Win 8 Control-Panel the icon (symbol) "Windows Update".

In the Windows-8 eg. Windows 8.1 Update settings (... See Image-2) customize the settings:
* Install updates automatically (recommended)
* Download updates but let me choose whether to install them
* Check for updates but let me choose whether to download and install them
* Never check for updates (not recommended)

Note: Windows Update might update itself automatically first when checking for other updates. ( Windows Update is free ).

(c) Microsoft
With automatic updating, you don't have to search for updates online, or worry, that critical fixes for Windows might be missing from your PC. Windows Update automatically installs important updates as they become available. You can also set Windows Update to install recommended updates automatically or just let you know that they're available. Optional updates, which include updates for other Microsoft products, aren't installed automatically. Windows Update won't add any apps to your PC without asking for your permission, or will it take away anything you already have.

(c) Microsoft
Windows Update is free.
However, depending on how you're billed for your Internet connection, standard local and long distance phone charges, Internet service charges, metered data plan charges, or mobile data charges might apply for the time required to download an update.

If you don't use automatic updating,
you should check for updates yourself at least once every week. We usually release important updates once a month. However, updates could be released at any time.

No matter what your settings are, some updates aren't installed automatically. This includes optional updates and updates that require you to accept new terms of use. When these updates are available, Windows Update will let you know that they're ready to be installed.
