    set the network as a metered connection. That should reduce Windows 10 usage of it.

      Did that. A few days later, it downloaded an update chewing up 3.6Gb of my data pack.
      Scoots still says that Apr 2020 didn't mark the start of a new stock bull market.

          Here they are.

          Just put those in the hosts file on your PC against 127.0.0.1 or some other invalid local ip, and they will effectively be blocked.
          A simple batch file could switch your hosts file (+ clear arp table and dns cache) so you can choose when to get updates.
          Another option is to put them into windows firewall using the "netsh advfirewall" commands. This could also be scripted to reverse them on demand.

            This is one of the way to disable auto-update. Also it is possible to disable updates via "Administration Politics"
