How can I stop our Win10 XenDesktops from running Windows updates

Andy White1709154166




I've tried everything to stop our Win10 desktops from running Windows updates and filling up their cache drive.


What we see is this at startup:




I'm got a GPO to block inheritance and added this:




I can't see anything in scheduled tasks.


On the master image in maintenance mode I've set the Windows Update service to disabled and stopped.


Last thing I do is run Citrix Optimiser.


What can I do to stop this, and just allow us to turn on manually?

There are several scheduled tasks that reenable Windows Updates, look under Update Orchestrator.  There are a few you cannot set to disabled even as administrator.  You can use PSEXEC to run a command prompt as system and then run the Scheduled Task console from there.
