    its not hand holding, the keys are protected in this way from malicious manipulation.

    It was stopping me from doing with my pc what I want to do, if that is malicious manipulation then I guess that is what I am doing to my pc to have control of it....

    What was happening was I was disabling the "Windows Update" service, but the "Windows Update Medic Service" kept re-enabling the Windows Update service, I was unable to disable Windows Update Medic Service but now I have learned how too and so far Windows Update service has not been altered again without my input, no more hand holding.

    I flagged my network connection as metered and no more automatic updates. Simple, easy, risk free.

    Same here, I also block IP's via firewall and hostfile so it's not like my pc can even connect to those windows update servers in the first place unless I allow it, so why have the services automatically running in the background if there is no use for them to be?

    xD

    They do not run all the time. I would understand if they were on "Automatic".

    Correct, I've no use for them running at all.

    This is the tips and tweaks thread, I asked for help on a very specific topic, I received a useful response, I learned something new, I gained further control of my pc... that's all there is to say.

    Yeah, yeah... Only time I managed to brick Windows at home rig I was toying with security permissions of registry keys trying to get rid of notorious DCOM errors in event log. Now MS turned these events into warnings but now I just ignore them.
    Anyway, when you do regular backups you have no worries.

    I used to know of a tool that would use the superadmin account to open applications such as regedit, but i can't remember its name of the life of me.

    I don`t understand the need to search for files. I do this so seldom that I don`t need 3rd party tools.
