What programs do I need to kill with my firewall to stop Windows Update? I can’t find a complete list anywhere.

Why do you want to stop getting Windows 10 updates?
There are needed if you really want to continue using Windows 10.

Then you need to get to a place where you can get a REAL connection and get your machine updated.

This isn’t helpful in the least, and it’s Microsoft propaganda to boot. If your machine is doing what you need with no issues, updates are not necessary. If you can’t answer my question, please stay out of my thread.

You can set the connection to Metered in Windows, you can also defer updates. Those are better choices then disabling updates and being a security risk to not only yourself but to everyone else on the internet.

How so, un-patched systems are vulnerable to being compromised, becoming part of botnets, spreading malware to other systems/people, or being used to spread or participate in attacks on other systems such as DDOS attacks or ransomware attacks.
