70-687 Configuring Windows 8.1 – sample exam – Q53

A company has an Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS) domain. Client computers in the Test department run Windows 8.1 and are connected to the domain.
You need to ensure that Windows updates are not automatically applied and cannot be enabled by users. What should you do?

A. Create a Group Policy object (GPO) to enable the Turn on recommended updates via Automatic Updates policy setting.
B. Configure Windows Update to install updates automatically.
C. Create a Group Policy object (GPO) to configure the Remove access to use all Windows Update features policy setting.
D. Create a Group Policy object (GPO) to configure the Configure Automatic Updates policy setting.

Correct Answer: C

Remove access to use all Windows Update features:
This Group Policy setting is located in User Configuration\Administrative Templates\Windows Components \Windows Update.
When you enable this setting, the operating system cannot be updated through Windows Update, and Automatic Updates is disabled. Users or administrators can still perform actions such as clicking the Windows Update option on the Start menu, and the Windows Update Web site will appear in the browser. However, it will not be possible to update the operating system through Windows Update, regardless of the type of account being used to log on.
