This tool can be used with the installed version of the Customized Windows 10 [Release 1607] for Reversers that I shared earlier on.

When we are debugging something and need to stay connected to the internet but do not want the OS attempting to download updates (and maybe restart) at that time, then we can use this tool to temporarily turn off the check for updates.

Do not worry in case your AV detects this as malware - Its a false positive.

Please do not use this tool to turn off the updates permanently as this could put your computer at risk
Nice tool TechLord...
This works fine on my Windows 10 RS3_1709_Fall_Creator...
