How to disable downloading of Windows Updates on KSC

Recommended Posts

Running KSC v10.5.1781 and it is saturating our download bandwidth pulling data from windowsupdate.com.  The server running KSC is the one pulling from windowsupdate.com and if I shutdown the "Kaspersky Security Center 10 Administration Server" Service, the connection to windowsupdate.com immediately closes.

I have checked all NetworkAgent policies and updates are disabled ( see attached ).

How can I prevent KSC from downloading updates?

Please tell us exactly which task generated this issue. 

Please be adviced that the task search vulnerabilities and required updates does not download the updates, only the metadata for them.

There isn’t  any running task, which is why I posted this request.  There is no obvious task or setting that I can find.

i also don’t know what it is downloading, other than it pegs our download bandwidth and stops when I shut down the above mentioned service.
