    Just take control of RT updates and install only what is needed when you want with regedit..

    Don't know why but I have found the needed key, AUOptions, in two locations.

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate\auto update\AUOptions
    or
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WindowsUpdate\auto update\AUOptions

    You will find this value set to 4. Modify this value to 2.

    1 : Never check for updates
    2 : Check for updates but let me choose whether to download and install them
    3 : Download updates but let me choose whether to install them
    4 : Install updates automatically

    Always use Windows Update from the control panel, hide the updates you don't want to install

    Defender will not auto update. Put a shortcut to defender on the desktop, open defender, update tab, 'Update Definitons', update when you think about it.

    Enjoy

    And I thought I was the only one with a working RT tablet.

    Still fine on 8.1 for the RT. Mine still notifies me when updates are pending on the shut-down/restart options popup mini-screen, and that has worked satisfactorily and flawlessly since Nov 2012.
