Disabling Automatic Windows Updates

Automatic Windows updates can be intrusive to kiosk use.  Windows updates can be manually applied as needed by IT administrators to keep the machine secure and up to date.

To disable Windows updates on a kiosk, first open up the services by clicking the start menu and searching “services”.

Find the Windows update service and select “Disabled” for startup type.

Next to ensure it does not re-enable itself, you can enter false log-on information in the “Log On” tab.

Select “Ok” and you are done disabling Automatic Windows Updates.
