How to Turn Off Office 2013 updates

Hi,

I have a client who's computer appears to be downloading updates continually which is a problem for us as we get charged per/mb for usage here.

Is there a way to turn off these updates? and only download when required?

Change the Windows update settings to: Check for updates but let me choose whether to download and install them.

Control Panels - System Security - Windows Update - Change Settings ... and select whatever you need. You may keep OS updates but suppress other MS software updates etc.

aadih, that is already sety there and making no difference.

Looking further I see that officesvc is connecting to the internet and doing the downloads. If that helps

What happens if you disable this service?

In an administrative command prompt window:

sc stop "OfficeSvc"
sc config "OfficeSvc" start= disabled
