    I would delete those files after you follow my advice. Then windows will not redownload those files.

    Your method is a little more involved than just disabling the service, I'm sure it works. However, if Windows manages to report back to Microsoft that updates aren't being applied the update will just get pushed to your desktop.

    Prove that this actually happens. Also it's not very involved at all. It's like 1 extra step compared to just disabling the service.

    Why do I need to prove it? Seriously, what is wrong with you people?

    As a tech I work on many, many machines far outside the realm of corporate networks - A far larger sample group than the couple of Windows PC's people have at home, and I see this all the time. If that's not good enough for you, I don't care.

    It's an icon on your desktop, who cares?

    WTF do you mean by you people? WTF are you even babbling on about with this? Please tell me you're not arguing from some asinine position of Windows vs Linux or something equally as juvenile

    If you properly disable updates on Windows 10 (Moreso if you're running Workstation/Enterprise) MS isn't going to magically push an entire OS update to you in the same way my Arch install isn't going to do shit unless I tell pacman to do something.

    I've disabled the windows update service multiple times and it has re-enabled itself purely on its own.

    As has been stated ITT. Home/Pro versions have checks that re-enable it. The proper way for disabling it permanently has already been shown ITT as well ;)

    So disabling it via guest as aunt mentioned it still re enables itself?
