so you replace 1 program that runs continuously in the background with another.
But one of those causes considerable grief when your machine restarts without your permission. And technically, it is not a replace! They both keep running. D'Oh! | :doh: But such is life in this case. Checked, and the command prompt is stuck at 0% usage if that is any consolation.

just curious, (I'm not on 10), what about stopping it and renaming the service .exe file?
Might be possible, but there are a couple other background processes that Windows runs that might trigger the file to be reimplemented. And I'm not knowledgeable about them.

edit: maybe - reddit thread showing which service dlls to rename, but the wuaueng.dll is not in the newest version of Win10.
