    StopUpdates10 is a free program for Microsoft's Windows 10 operating system that modifies some system settings to block Windows Updates on the target device.

    While it is usually not a good idea to block the installation of updates, as you'd block non-critical and security updates alike, doing so may sometimes be necessary as a temporary measure.

    The new cumulative nature of updates introduced an all or nothing approach to updates; it is no longer possible to block specific updates with issues. The only option users and administrators have is to block all updates temporarily until issues are resolved.

    Doing so is far from ideal as you may block important security updates when you block updates.

    Note: Microsoft changed the update scheme to rollup updates on Windows 7 and Windows 8 systems in 2016 as well (and Server variants).

    Windows 10 comes with options to delay the installation of updates. You may use the Settings app, Group Policy, or Registry for that.
