You can do this either with Powershell or editing the registry.

  1. Stop the Windows Update service
  2. Open regedit
  3. Find the following key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\
  4. Right-Click and delete the registry key Windows Update
  5. Restart the Windows update Service
