Permanently disable windows 10 updates?! Saffire Pro 26 driver support?!

Hi guys,

The question, as it really bugs me.


Can you completely stop windows updates?


My Focusrite Saffire pro 26 does not have drivers support for windows 1909. They offered stable updates only to windows 1809, as stated on their website. So, I think if I should fresh install windows to version 1803(maybe better), it will work?


But I don't know if I can completely disable windows updates so that it will not update itself


this is what Focusrite states on its page



Saffire firewire range (Pro 14, Pro 24, Pro 24 DSP, Pro 26, Pro 40, LS 56) Works with Windows 10 1903? No Saffire FireWire interfaces are no longer under development support, therefore we recommend that users do not upgrade Windows OS beyond Windows 10 build 1809.


I have also found this tool.

I believe you can't fully disable it but heres a quick search result that might be useful:



Thanks for this, man! I really appreciate it!

I seem to have some crackles and pops with my Saffire Pro 26 Firewire interface. Just ran a latencymon test and apparently, the Process with highest page fault count is msmpeng.exe , so I'm thinking that it has to do with Windows Defender...
