Since the microsoft fixes/updates on the servers in our organization are managed by another group via SCCM, I have disabled the Windows Update and the Background Intellingent Transfer services and deleted the C:\windows\software distribution\ in order to recover couple of Gigs. The problem is the system starts automatically the services without human intervention.
Event viewer capture: The Windows Update service entered the running state. Log Name: System Source: Service Control Manager Event ID: 7036 OpCode: Info Logged: 08/12/2016 15:32:06 Task Category: None Keywords: Classic Computer: CTX******
Does anyone knows why the services are switching to running state automatically and how to prevent this?
