So I'm stuck with the annoying advert offering me an update I can't take even if I wanted to.
HKLM\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\Gwx\DisableGwx (dword) = 1
That is supposed to stop the GWX nagware
HKLM\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate\DisableOSUpgrade (dword) = 1
That is supposed to stop upgrade attempts
In a Domain environment though, the entire point is controlled management, so allowing random updates to be installed feels a lot like doing it wrong.
We actually have WSUS, although primarily for bandwidth sanity rather than second-guessing Microsoft's "recommended" or "important" updates.
However, the challenge we find is with mobile users and remote home-offices, that are only connected to the company VPN on an intermittent and unpredictable manner. We found it better to let these use MS-Update and trust MS not to do anything underhanded...
