Stop Windows 10 1903 from forcing update (End of Service)
Ok, needs some help with the experts. I have had continued trouble with Windows forcing updates even with disabling the WindowsUpdate service. I'm on 1903 v1 as it's the only version that works with my eGPU. I seem to get an "End of Service" message and it forces an update to 1909 and breaks. I have not tried recently going to 200H as some did with the 13". Any ideas on how to stop this forced message?
Just FYI, I have to set the service to disabled a reboot from time to time to prevent this message. Not sure what is resetting it to manual and eventually starting up the death upgrade process. I'm not a Windows person so know idea what causes this.
Setting a group policy (normally a tool used by system administrators for large corporations with many PCs) is the only way that truly disabled updates for me.
There's a guide here:
