Smile Windows Update Disabler v1.0

A small tool that I coded that would enable us to TURN OFF and TURN ON Windows Updates as per our wish.

CONFIRMED WORKING for Windows 10 versions upto and including the Release 1703.
Not sure if it would work for later versions (did not test).

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

SUGGESTED USE:
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.

P.S:
Please do not use this tool to turn off the updates permanently as this could put your computer at risk

Great work Techlord. Looking forward to the technical details in how you disable the updates. Any chance to release the source code?

Many thanks

Dear elephant,
At this time I am limiting the release of the sources for this and other related tools etc to only our forum members who have actually worked on developing Open Source software to any significant extent.

This way, I feel that anyone who would actually be able to improved the code would be able to do so.

On the other hand, not indiscriminately releasing sources would prevent "script kiddies" and those who want to just modify the GUI a bit and re-sell it as their own, from doing so.

While this is just a tiny tool with just a single function, in the future, I would be releasing more complex programs and I think that this logic makes sense.

I would like to add that for the veterans here, it would take less than 3 minutes to figure out how this tool works in any case
So obviously, they would not even need the sources
