    Make sure you create a System Restore point before below steps.

    Open Registry Editor.

    Go to registry location:

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Notifications\Settings\Windows.SystemToast.WindowsUpdate.MoNotification2

    If you found Enabled in right pane, delete the registry DWORD.
