I really don't want to get a particular update SCCM push from IT. I have local admin rights on my windows 7 machine. Is there a way for me to prevent the update from applying. I can see it in Software Center but cannot see a way to decline the update.


The answer is no. SCCM is a centralized management control tool, users should obey the management of the IT sector strategy. Current situation you could communicate with IT departments.

  • I see your point; however I have already attempted talking to IT and got nowhere. I believe I am more than capable of supporting myself and just need to be left alone this once. – andrew santos Feb 18 '17 at 3:30
  • I'm afraid you can't do that. – Paladin Guo - MSFT Feb 20 '17 at 2:20
  • Is that answer from technology point of view? – andrew santos Feb 20 '17 at 6:02
  • Technically, you could decline the all update by edit the Registry keys, which is possible but is not recommended: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate – Paladin Guo - MSFT Feb 21 '17 at 6:34
  • i am really only concerned about one particular update – andrew santos Feb 21 '17 at 10:39
