      I can’t stand this anymore. I have set my connection as metered, I’ve also set to not automatically download the updates on metered connection, and it still downloads the updates! Metered connection or not, it’s still the same. No protection, no control on when I want to update, nothing. And right now I can’t afford getting Pro. The only way to prevent updating is by deactivating the wuauserv at the Service panel, and I have to deactivate it every day. Is there a better way to protect myself, since setting my connection to metered is useless?

      My English is far from perfect and I want to improve it. If you find any mistakes (especially the grammar ones), feel free to correct me.

      whshowhide.diagcab, downloadable from MS, allows you  to hide updates.

      Otherwise, you need to use third-party update blockers lide WUMgr or O&O Shutup.

      My W10 machine pops up warnings that it can’t download updates due to the metered connection. I can choose to download them anyway, but it’s manual each time.

      cheers, Paul

      How do I use the whshowhide.diagcab? Just select the update and hide it? Is there something else I need to know?

        When it opens, click “Advanced,” uncheck make corrections automatically. Choose “Hide Updates.”
        Be sure you use AKB2000013 to be sure you clear out the Windows Update queue before you open Windows Update in the Settings app.
        Good luck.
