Windows XP - How to disable the Automatic update feature

Ask a question



Issue


I'm using Windows XP and after each update (minor), I'm prompted to restart my PC.

This is quite annoying, I've already install the important security updates and I don't require the automatic update feature for the time being.

Solution


To disable the Automatic update feature:
  • Click on Start
  • Run
  • Type the following command:
    • net stop wuauserv
  • Of course if you want to restore this service do a:
    • net start wuauserv
