"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

To Configure or Disable Automatic Updates Using Group Policy
 
1.       See Appendix B: Resources for Learning About Group Policy, for information about using Group Policy. Ensure that your Administrative templates have been updated (specifically, Wuau.adm), and then edit an appropriate GPO.
 
2.       Click Computer Configuration, click Administrative Templates, click Windows Components, and then click Windows Update.
 
3.       In the details pane, double-click Configure Automatic Updates.
 
4.       Select Not Configured, Enabled, or Disabled. If you choose Enabled, choose from the available settings, which are equivalent to the Control Panel settings described in "Automatic Updates," earlier in this section.
 
 
Note  
Disabling this setting disables Automatic Updates but does not block access to Windows Update.
 
To Prevent the Operating System from Being Updated Through Windows Update by Using Group Policy
 
1.       See Appendix B: Resources for Learning About Group Policy, for information about using Group Policy. Ensure that your Administrative templates have been updated, and then edit an appropriate GPO.
 
2.       Click Computer Configuration, click Administrative Templates, click System, click Internet Communication Management, and then click Internet Communication settings.
 
3.       In the details pane, double-click Turn off access to all Windows Update features.
   
Important
 
This policy also disables Automatic Updates.
 
You can also restrict Internet access for this and a number of other components by applying the Restrict Internet communication policy setting, which is located in Computer Configuration/Administrative Templates/System/Internet Communication Management. For more information about this Group Policy and the policies that it controls, see Appendix C: Group Policy Settings Listed Under the Internet Communication Management Key.
 
It is a workaround to block the Windows Update, but cannot tell the user: “this feature is disable by administrator”.
