Nail down Windows version
Freeze current windows
If you want to keep your current Windows version; If you want to protect yourself against a function update being forcibly installed, you can protect yourself against this with a handle in the registry.
Up to version 1909, the function update could be delayed up to 365 days, which has not been possible since version 2004.
With these entries, the currently installed version can be frozen until the entries are removed, or the value of the DWORD can be set to = 0
Update lock on:
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ SOFTWARE \ Policies \ Microsoft \ Windows \ Windows Update]
“TargetReleaseVersionInfo” = ”2004”
“TargetReleaseVersion” = dword: 00000001
