Steps on how to disable Windows Auto Update
1.- Windows Services
The first step is to go to the start and type “Services” and click on it.
2.-Look for the service
When you open the window will show with different services of our operating system, at the end of the list you should find Windows Update. Then click on it.
3.- Choose your option
The window will open where in Startup type you will find Automatic, Manual or Disable.
After choosing your startup you must restart your PC, remember that the automatic startup updates the system when it does not have activity, for example at a time when the computer is not in use, but when using the PC again this does not cancel the discharge.
- The automatic starts the update immediately,
- the manual requires the user to check if an update is available to start the download.
- The least recommended is disabled.
If you want to update your system just go to the configuration of Windows 10 – Windows Update – Search Updates. If these updates slow down your connection it is best to choose the manual form and decide when to start the process but do not choose disable because it is vulnerable to viruses, spyware and other threats.
