Windows 7: Where are the Windows Update Service Execution Files ?

Where are the Windows Update Service Execution Files ?


I have a problem with some program turning on my windows automatic updates and forcefully installing them all without my intervention.

Now after 5 times this occuring every few weeks, I will now FORCEFULLY DISABLE windows update from any sort of execution. I do not have patience to wait for audit log to trace the offending program or action.

But I do not know, nor do I have patience to search for, sorry, a list of where these files are located, I've looked previously but forgot where windows keeps it's SERVICES stuff?

This will be done by hacking windows files so they won't be able to execute, I will now better take a time out before I hurt my desk and sorroundings even more, my decision is final, please don't offer alternatives, I hate windows update, but I hate the computer doing stuff on it's own even more.

Thank you for all the help.

Is you question; How to stop auto updates of Windows and other programs.
If it is we can help.
I can manually update Windows and other programs on my computer.
I hate auto updates.
Have you activated Windows 7 Ultimate and do you have SP-1?

Whether you I or Santa Clause like Windows updates is a moot point.
If you want Windows 7 to work properly and safely it will need it's updates.
That is a fact.
